Balancing Styles of Exercise

Why is it essential to have a balance between all styles of exercise? Many times, what we see is someone getting a lot of volume in a fixed pattern of movement like cycling or running.  And while it’s good that you are out and exercising, things can get out of balance.  Long-term imbalances can lead to overuse issues and even injury. For Example, if you’re getting a lot of miles in running, you could become very quad dominant. Your glutes, your hamstrings, aren’t getting enough attention and use – especially for longevity.  In the case of a quad …

A Simple Tip For Recovery

Hey everyone, it’s coach AB here to talk to you today about some tips in recovery you may not have thought about.  So a little bit of storytime, I was walking around during my floor hours, and I connected with one of our member’s here that was confused as to why she was super sore all the time after split squats, some squats, right, so I went through the laundry list of things we ask people sometimes.

Can I Foam Roll Everyday?

Can I foam roll every day?    Sure. Why not? You can foam roll every day.   What I’d ask you is why do you feel like you need to foam roll every day? Does it feel like someone parked a truck on you?   Maybe you’re getting too much work or you’re under recovering. What do I mean by ‘under recovering’? You might not be giving yourself time to recover from your workouts. Your body needs adequate sleep, nutrition, and time to benefit from exercise. If you’re shorting yourself on one of those important factors or you’re targeting the …

A Simple Tip For Recovery

Hey everyone, it’s coach AB here to talk to you today about some tips in recovery you may not have thought about.  So a little bit of storytime.    I was walking around during my floor hours, and I connected with one of our member’s here that was confused as to why she was super sore all the time after split squats.   We went through the laundry list of things we ask people sometimes.   How are you sleeping?

Where should my weight be when I’m deadlifting?

“Where should my weight be when I’m deadlifting? In my heels? “ No, I don’t want your weight in your heels when you’re deadlifting. I like your weight on your mid-foot. Unfortunately, what you see is that many people are very quad dominant, so they’ll roll up onto their toes.  https://youtu.be/vaUKTHPcO-Y You’ll often hear the coaching cue, “weight on your heels,” when they’re just trying to get you back to your midfoot.  What does that look like? You want a flat foot with the weight just behind the ball of the foot. Pressure plate analysis shows that the …

Steve Lefebvre Testimonial

Achieving a healthy lifestyle starts with establishing a routine. However, it’s easy to get discouraged and give up when you can’t see immediate results. It’s hard enough to get up the motivation to work out once, let alone consistently. The key is knowing what motivates you and your personal goals, then working towards achieving them!  Just like Steve, his biggest challenge was sticking with the workout routine on a consistent basis day to day. After he joined CrossFit Mass, it definitely helped him stay motivated to keep showing up, feeling better and just improving every aspect of his …

The 4/6 Breath for Relaxation

I want to talk today about a breathing method I’ve been using for some time now. I’ve been using it so long that I forget where it originated.  The technique is very simple and allows you to become calm but remain alert. It can be done anywhere at any time and is perfectly safe. https://youtu.be/nflfon0ilHw   I refer to it as the 4/6 breath because of the timing involved. Simple inhale thru your nose on a slow count of 4. Pause briefly, then exhale through your nose or mouth on a slow count of 6 and pause again.  …

Are you happy? 🙂

Are you happy? Are you where you want to be with your health? Are you where you want to be financially? Are you going through the motions each day, unsure of your purpose? Are you supported by others when you’re struggling? Are you only supported by others when things are going well? Are you looking forward to the next 5, 10, 20 years of your life? If you answered “NO” to any of these questions, I encourage you to look around at the people you spend your time with. Your time is your most expensive asset. Your mind …
