Article: Beetroot juice is a new performance enhancer?

“. . . After drinking beetroot juice the group was able to cycle for an average of 11.25 minutes – 92 seconds longer than when they were given the placebo.

This would translate into an approximate 2% reduction in the time taken to cover a set distance. . .”

    Happy Friday everyone!!!
    Don’t forget about UFC Fight Night Party at the SHED this Sat night 7pm SHARP!!
    Big Kevin was kind enough to donate paleo food from Chevy’s!!
    BYOB, bring a couple of bucks to donate for the fight (it’s on PPV) and bring something to share…please.

    Great energy at 6am this morning. We welcomed in newbie Desiree A. to the team.
    She is a doll.
    A tear actually came to my eye this morning as I was so touched to see one of my athletes graduate from the 12″ box to the 20″ box…Michelle is all grown up now!!
    I’m so proud of her.
    Marnie was tearing it up w/ deadlifts…#175 PR!!
    Kevin #375, Cabby was up there too. Kerri S. and Desiree had never done deads before and had perrrrrrfect form, and Shiva was a little bunny on the box during the metcon…lol

    Everyone loved JJ’s Metcon.

    I love the snatches Jeff was doing. He’s so damned strong he does them as a front raise to overhead!!!

  • Alessandro

    Hey that video has evidence: Adam did more pullups than Mark at the Games!

  • Mark L.

    Adam’s pullups weren’t “chest to balls”. (see video for explanation why this comment isn’t dirty)

  • JimmyG

    Is chest to balls better than chin to balls??? I’m not quite sure….honestly

  • Stavros@Diablo Crossfit

    Spoken like a true 49er fan…

    ; )

  • JimmyG

    Niner fans speak in Rings, as in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5…..

  • JimmyG

    Stav…deep down you have to love the Niners as you end up getting most all our leftovers…and then do nothing with them..lol
    Rice, Lott, Craig, Romanowski, Kwame, Newberry, Rathman…ect…ect

    For raider fans…lol

  • Mark L.

    While there will be some Chevy’s, it is a “Paleo Potluck”. Bring a dish to share that serves a few people (meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, few fruit, little starch and NO SUGAR–unless it’s a margarita).
    Yvonne… we need to order it in HD! 😉
    Jimmy and I will reimburse you off the collection we make, tonight. (Bring a few extra bucks to throw in the hat for the fight). Also, BYOB

    That is all.

  • Stavros @ Diablo CrossFit

    I thought UFC was Saturday?

  • Mark L.

    Nice catch, Stav. Tonight is NOT Saturday (note to self). SATURDAY!

    Okay DCF, here are some give-aways of clothing that no longer fits me…email me if you’re interested. Stuff is free for the taking, not asking for any cash, but I’m a sucker for good beer.

    First off,

    I have 3 Crossfit t-shirts;
    1- Crossfit Unlimited, “Train Not To Suck At Life”, black, size Large
    1- Crossfit Oakland, “Smoke You Like Cheap Crack”, black, size Large
    1- Crossfit Unlimited, “WOD Ninja”, white, size Medium

    Assortment of mens clothing, I have pretty good taste if you ask me…haha, but seriously, it’s all good stuff. American Eagle, A&F, etc.

    Pants/shorts in size 36″(maybe some 34″) x 30″ inseam. Some khakis, jeans, etc.
    T-shirts, mostly Large, a couple dress shirts, even have some cool boxer shorts and chonies.
    I also have a pair of New Balance 908’s (something like that), sz 10.5, nearly new condition.

    If you’re needing some clothes because you’ve shrunk out of your bigger stuff, let me know. I’d love to pass stuff on and share the love.
