In this video, K-Starr talks about head positioning. During lifts, gymnastics movements, double unders, what-have-you, your head positioning is key. You’ve heard us talk about locking your vision down so your head stays in a neutral position, here’s more evidence to support that, as well as a tactic to help out, THE TONGUE LOCK, much less inappropriate than it sounds. MOB ON.

A video from the CrossFit Journal a little while back on reconciling form and intensity in our sport. You’ve probably heard us talk about 1 Rep Maxes not always looking perfect. Form may degrade with intensity and speed, but safety is always paramount. After all we want you to be able to come back to the gym the next day!

SOO. I’ve been craving Caramel Apples. Anyone else? Here’s a basic recipe for a raw Caramel Paste from Nature Insider. I figured adding a few things into the mix would make something to hit the spot… and, uh yeah, it did. NOM NOM!
2 cups dates
3 tablespoons spring water
1 teaspoon maple syrup
3 tablespoons almond butter, melted
Add 2 tablespoons shaved coconut or shaved chocolate (depending on your mood!)
Pit the dates, put them in a bowl with the water and microwave for ~30 seconds. Mash with a fork until smooth, mix in the maple syrup and melted almond butter. When smooth, add in your coconut (or chocolate) and cover green apples for “caramel apples”!
