“Paleo Challenge Liftoff!!!” by Brian Wilson

So the Paleo Challenge is in full swing. You can do the play at home version by following through our Paleo blog where we post helpful info or through our FAQ for basics on how to get started.

The biggest question you might have is “What’s in it for me?” My answer based on running hundreds of people through this diet is: everything. Want to get #sexyasfuck: do Paleo. Want to improve your performance in CrossFit: do Paleo. Want to improve every aspect of your health from auto-immune deficiency to staying more awake and alert after lunch: do Paleo.

There’s plenty of excuses that you can offer yourself for not doing Paleo or doing a watered down version. But compliance gets results. It might be hard at first, but you just have to have some skin in the game either through a Paleo Challenge or doing some 1:1 nutritional counseling. So help us help you, there’s bacon and being #sexyasfuck in it for you.

      PC: 130/130/135/135 -I got in my own head. I should have been able to do 140.

      Metcon: 5+7 rx’d

      For Chesley:

      Power Clean: 225, 235, 235, 240, 245xfail.
      Metcon: 5+1 rx’d …I thought it was a 9-minute cap. Was right on track in my mind to beat 5+7, but reading comprehension failure got the better of me. I might want a rematch. In a couple weeks.
