As CrossFitters, we are bombarded with advice in the health and wellness department, and it’s easy to get lost in the vast amount of information. So without much ado, let’s discuss a topic that I feel is extremely important moving forward: Overtraining and Inadequate Recovery.
Do you remember how during the first 6-9 months of taking CrossFit classes you were hitting a new PR every single week? You would come in and see "1RM Backsquat" and essentially know that you were about to put a new PR up. I've seen athletes come in and do a workout on day 1 and then repeat that same workout in 2 weeks and finish it 2 minutes faster on a 6 minute workout! That much improvement is absolutely insane, but we see it all of the time.
Food prep gets a bad rap. It can seem overwhelming, time consuming, and impractical. BUT, in all actuality food prep SAVES time. Now, food prep might not be for everyone's schedule, but if you are a busy bee that finds it hard to cook every day and has to grab food on the go, food prep might just be "your thing."
Ever walked into the gym, looked at our White Board (or Wodify), and thought to yourself, “What’s with all the boring movements?” Well, my guess is that you are NOT alone! That’s why we are going to begin to introduce a little more behind our philosophy here at SLCF.
Fast & Healthy Options in SoKno!
Simon Hall, who is an incredible personal chef here in Knoxville, TN will start delivering healthy pre-made meals to South Landing CrossFit each Monday! These Whole30 approved meals are an excellent way to have healthy options throughout the week, whether you need to grab one occasionally on the go, or order a weeks worth to help with meal prep.
So, how does this work? There are a couple of options. You can order meals through us (we will place orders by THURSDAY at noon), and then pick up your meals on Monday. OR, South Landing CrossFit will keep extra meals in the fridge at the gym if you need a last minute option for lunch or dinner and want to stop by to grab a healthy meal. Meals range anywhere from $8-$12 and all are made by a private chef here locally.
