“The success of our efforts depends not so much on the efforts themselves, but rather on our motive for doing them.”
Transparent Labs Turmeric
Turn To Turmeric
Your body’s ability to recover from training is one of the most important factors to consider when trying to reach your fitness goals. As crossfitters, we often experience the repercussions of our training through inflammation and the dreaded post workout delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Our body instinctively translates workout stress into inflammation. The active ingredient in Turmeric called Curcumin has extremely potent anti-inflammatory properties which can aid our recovery from tough workouts. Some research suggests that all natural Turmeric might be as effective in reducing inflammation as ibuprofen! Turmeric’s health benefits include reducing the effects of rheumatoid arthritis, joint pain, and even depression! It’s no secret why it has been used as a staple supplement in India and China for thousands of years. Transparent Labs has created an excellent combination of Turmeric and Bioprene that allows nutrients to be absorbed to their full potential. Say bye to those cranky knees with Turmeric!

Wednesday – Squat Day (Week 5) + L.I.F.T
We should be getting pretty heavy this week as we add another 5 pounds to the barbell. We will be keeping the 2-second tempo going down to the “hole” this week! Our low-intensity functional training will incorporate weighted push-ups, weighted sit-ups, sandbag plank pull-throughs, and farmer’s carries.
Thursday – The Real ROMWOD
You’ve heard your coaches preach it! You’ve probably heard it a thousand times! The worst thing we can do when we feel “beat-up” is stop moving!
