We’re finally in full swing into the Summer of 2022. It’s been 3 years since we’ve felt a somewhat normal summer experience as we learn to navigate the post-Covid era. People are back to traveling, businesses are open for events, and were doing social gatherings once again. Sounds great so you tell yourself you will pause your gym membership for several months and pick up right where you left off in the Fall. Until you don’t. Health and fitness aren’t seasonal. We need to take care of our bodies and minds 365 days of the year. Of course, we all need breaks and resets but to put your health on the backburner during busy months such as traveling, work, or social events, is doing more harm than good. Boulder CrossFit is open practically every day of the year in hopes you come in, have fun, get fit, and make it...

It’s that time of the year again! Every May Boulder CrossFit preps its members for our annual Murph workout. You may be asking yourself, what is Murph, and more importantly why the heck would anyone put themselves through that workout? The Murph in CrossFit is what we call a “chipper”. It’s a long aerobic workout normally consisting of different movements and high reps. The exact workout is listed above. Over the years, we’ve heard all the excuses on why NOT to do this workout. Were not focusing on the why not in this post but rather the why. This is a hero WOD designed to honor the life of Navy Seal, Lt. Michael Murphy who died in combat. Sometimes you put yourselves through workouts that are bigger than just fitness. And this is one of them. We do Murph each year to put ourselves in the shoes of people like...

Phew. We did it! We’re all done with the 2022 CrossFit Open. Whether it was your first time competing or your tenth, I’m sure we all found something to celebrate. Our in-house competition was super fun. We ended up having over 50 members participate each donating $20. That means we were able to raise $400 for this awesome non-profit that brings fitness to under-represented youth. After 3 hard weeks, team GREEN came out on top. 1st Place: Team Green 1,683 points 2nd Place: Team Purple 1660 points 3rd Place: Team Black 1394 I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who donated, participated and gave it their all each week. The Open has always been a time to celebrate our own fitness journey while cheering on our fellow gym-mates. This year was especially great due to the pandemic life we’ve all been living the past 2 years. You all made...

I thought I would write some thoughts on this topic since I’ve personally seen members, coaches and myself struggle with this over the years. In simple terms redlining in a workout (not just CrossFit) is when you push it too hard past the point of recovery where there are diminishing returns aka hyper-ventilating, puking, dizziness, shakiness, etc. A perfect example is when you hop on the Rogue Echo bike for an all-out 50 cal sprint and when you get off your legs are so shaky you can’t imagine doing anything else after. A classic CrossFit workout where most people redline is “Fran”. 21-15-9 reps of thrusters and pullups. Meant to be done in less than 7 minutes this is a sprint where you are going close to if not past your 100% threshold. Sounds great, right? The Morning Chalk Up recently wrote an article named, “If you’re redlining, you’re kind...
