Dry Caveman 2019

The Dry Caveman Is Here!


Dry Caveman is Diablo CrossFit’s annual, voluntary “alcohol abstention competition.” Every New Year until Valentine’s day, many Diablo members pledge to not consume alcohol. It’s a great way to detox from the holidays, lose the stubborn pounds, and check-in with ourselves – physically and mentally. This is our 10th year of hosting this challenge (and it still still sucks)!


The list of positive reasons to participate is long, but the most important reason reasons are your health, both short-term and long-term. We do CrossFit so that we can be healthy, yet the evidence is overwhelming that alcohol negatively affects health & wellness. So, if you participate you are very likely going to lose weight, feel better and make gains.

As CrossFitters, our fitness exceeds that of many of our friends, family and peers, so it’s easy to overlook the adverse effects of alcohol consumption. However, many of us probably know family and friends whose lives have been affected by alcohol. The Dry Caveman is a great way to “check in” on yourself.

Most people quickly discover how difficult it is to NOT drink: with friends or family, with work peers, at parties, at sporting events, or other events. Warning: you may be surprised by the reactions of your friends and family (and the peer pressure).

In the end, we guarantee you’ll learn a lot about yourself, improve your health and gain a sense of accomplishment!


 We think you’ll experience changes in your appearance and fitness. The best test for physical changes is via an InBody body-composition scan. For the Dry Caveman, we’re offering TWO scans for $48 – one when you start and one, when you finish. Click the button below to purchase your InBody scans.
