I love that we can all get into the gym and learn things that a great for our bodies, minds, and spirits. I know that when I hit the gym consistently my days are always a little better but I am also a huge fan of taking that learning outside the four walls of the gym. CrossFit HQ has it's very own journal and they publish interesting articles, videos, and photo stories (almost daily) for anyone from the affiliate owner to the everyday CrossFitter. Check out the journal here.

One of my favorite things about this journal is that you can sort by (topic) or read it in chronological order. I get on kicks where I want to learn more about a specific movement or nutrition, I always look toward the journal first. Here a few articles that recent read:

       Busted 10s and Benjamins

       An Open Letter to the Big Dogs

       Conjectural Fatigue: High Repetition Weightlifting

       CrossFit Culinary Ninja: Beyond the Bland Bowl of Broccoli

       Simple Nutrition with E.C. Synkowski 

 

I want to know, what are you favorite CrossFit Journal articles?
