Article:

Scientists show how Broccoli, Cauliflower, Cabbage, etc combat cancer.

“. . .”These vegetables contain compounds called isothiocyanates which we believe to be responsible for the cancer-preventive and anti-carcinogenic activities in these vegetables. Broccoli and broccoli sprouts have the highest amount of the isothiocyanates. . .”

(So make sure you grab some broccoli on the appetizer tray at the before the Christmas Dinner -jj).

    Look at me, what a tool! I have my ‘One World’ sign backwards (World One???) I’ve done this before, now I deserve the ribbing I’m gonna get tomorrow at the box.
    Oh well, good way to shut’em up is to build up that lactic burn in my lungs, get my punding heart massaging the underside of my sternum, and collapse after a WOD with that bloody, copper taste in my mouth.

    Love Diablo’s intensity, can’t wait to come back and see the new place! Thanks for the hospitality my friends!

    Perhaps a 15yo girl can show some of the beasts the RIGHT way to do power cleans:

    Same for Hang Power Cleans:

    Notice that the Hips & Knees do not thrust forward for the catch! The feet land flat.

    Drill, drill, drill people!

    I think this just may be the workout I will get to throwup for real. 100’s are insane

    Thanks for the tip, Craig, but Sage ain’t any normal 15 yo girl! Clark Kent was a 15 yo boy once, too.
    I do need to drill with just the bar to train my nervous system, and I also need to scale weight properly. Keeping the intensity high by using maximal weight while my form goes to hell and I risk injury… not a good plan.
    I need to remind myself that this is all about the “training effect” that occurs later, not egos at the moment. Besides, walking around hunched over for 2 days doesn’t help my ego.
    Dave, I’m looking forward to seeing the video! Looks like it was a fun day!

    Merry Christmas everyone! Great time with Sarah, Rick & Darren….I really thought we were going to do ‘The 12 days of CrossFit’ today. Angie, what a pleasant surprise. So nice to hear Rick screaming at people again….I really miss that 🙂
    20:06…PR by about 2 min. Push ups are still my weakness.

    Nice work, Carry! Merry Christmas back at you!
