Alright guys, I’ve been doing some experimenting.
I am not a supplement guy. I am a food guy. That just means that I am always going to encourage you guys to get what your body needs, micro and macro nutrients, from the foods that contain them. And, you guys that know me know that by food I mean actual food, like from before we ate out of boxes.
However, even the most adamant meat and veggies proponents can have a difficult time obtaining and consuming all that is required for optimal living. Even though you’ll still be better off than the majority of the population, I have come across a supplement that I can recommend.
Here is the kicker, it’s actually still food. And that’s why I like it. It’s also why it actually works.
We don’t sell it. Although I wouldn’t be against stocking it one day if that’s even possible. But in the meantime this is a completely unbiased and disinterested review/recommendation.
The product is called Athletic Greens, and outside of taking Progenex for recovery, it’s probably the best thing I have added to my routine.
I’m not going to go into the details about it, or write shit that’s already on their website and every review out there, just wanted to let you guys know about it.
I don’t take anything I can’t immediately tell I’ve taken, or that I can’t tell when I forget to take it. That’s why I stopped taking BCAA’s, multivitamins, SSRI’s, and college courses.
But, after about 2 months, I can confidently recommend this product to you guys. Cost per serving is about the same as a (real) serving of vegetables which you aren’t eating enough of anyway, I actually like the taste, and the improvements in my clean energy levels, mental clarity, workouts, and mood have been “statistically significant.”
Part of my responsibility as your head coach is to let you know when I stumble upon things like this, so there you go.
Alexandra has been experimenting as well so if you guys have any questions about it let us know.
As with anything, I recommend you guys try it, then stop it. If it’s not noticeable, leave it behind!
Final caveat, NOTHING will fix your shitty diet.
This is not going to “override” your poor decision making abilities if you have those, but if you are trying to eat real food and feel like there may be some gaps in there that need filling, give Athletic Greens a try.
Your success is our success.
P.S. Dear Athletic Greens, please don’t sue us for posting a picture of your product while trying to advocate your product.
Happiness is your natural state. Worry is its enemy.
One of our biggest sources of worry is concerning our health. The world would have us believing that cancer, heart disease, and diabetes are unavoidable and lurking around every corner—waiting to pounce. While we CrossFitters are not immune to health problems, we know that we are doing everything we can to not be responsible for them.
Another source of worry is what people think of us. As CrossFitters we have learned that we are more capable than we ever thought we were. We regularly participate in activities we once thought impossible. We achieve on a regular basis. We develop a healthy opinion of ourselves that often overrides our concern for others’ opinions of us.
A third source of worry is finding ourselves in situations we are unable to handle. Flat tires, muggings, car wrecks, bar fights, the backyard with our grandkids. Again, many CrossFitters have laid this worry to rest and are living a fuller, happier life with their newfound fitness.
Many people think of CrossFit as too hard or too difficult. They do not wish to experience the discomfort that we seem to love.
What they don’t realize is that CrossFit is not about loving discomfort, nor is it some crazy masochistic endeavor. It isn’t pain for the sake of pain.
Comfort is actually the result… Comfort from worry.
We do it for the Happy.
