Powerlifter Vs. Crossfiter! Who Wins In The Battle Of The AMRAP??? *Video Included*

  Over the last several years, it's become almost a joke to point and snicker at Crossfit as a whole. The amount of articles that come out on the safety and why it's an abomination to the fitness industry are so second nature, it's like breathing at this point. Before I started working with Crossfit athletes, I used to be one of these people. I would constantly say things like "Pfffft fucking Crossfit is the [...]

[KITCH’N COACHIN’ with Coach G] Pre-Workout Power Food

What's the best thing to eat pre-workout, you ask? Press play to see my recommendation: My go-to is an easily digestible protein + starch ~1 hour pre-workout. If you're training in the morning, add plenty of salt. Kill two birds with one stone with foods like pre-cooked & cooled white rice & white potatoes because they have higher levels of resistant starch, i.e., good gut bacteria food. No worries, you can re-heat it to eat. [...]
