Fuel

CrossFit recommends eating meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Eat in quantities that fuel athletic performance, but not in excess that would promote unhealthy weight gain. This is the basis for a healthy diet. There are tweaks that can be made and foods that can be added to this to enhance the nutrient value of the diet and dial in performance, but this is the basis. It is the primary fuel for most every top CrossFit athlete worldwide. Fuel is a huge part of being a top level CrossFitter or even getting the most out of your personal potential. It is also an instrumental part of The Program without eating a “real foods” diet you are not totally buying into what we are selling. Get the most out of your body, feel better and live a healthier life – fuel well.

  1. Switched to pushpus instead of ring dips after 5 rounds as my ring dips gave out completely.

    Did the pullups, situps and squats unbroken all 10 rounds.

    • Nice job just finding a way to do it! Some days that can even make it more fun.
      I look forward to the day I can get the pull ups done and just find a playground.

  3. Did this one at home in the garage gym very early. Subbed standard ‘bar’ dips for ring dips.

    100 ring dips would have been a lot harder and taken a lot longer. Good job getting 50 in before switching to push-ups Casey.
