CrossFit Exercise Demos
Do these on M/W CrossFit days or at CF classes? Great, then click the Sunday Special button and consider putting them to the test at the Fall Contest, ala “Games style.”

Reminder: On the whiteboard, sign up for the Fall Contest. If you signed up previously, pick a new FRIDAY time, and then write all your days/times on a pink sticky for future reference. Plenty of slots left ye CrossFitters.

Which nut has the highest anti-oxidant power? The popular almond, cashew, peanut, pecan? No, the Walnut. Is that weird? Yeah, totally nuts.
“Vinson also found that the quality, or potency, of antioxidants present in walnuts was highest among the nuts. Antioxidants in walnuts were 2-15 times as potent as vitamin E, renowned for its powerful antioxidant effects that protect the body against damaging natural chemicals involved in causing disease.” (see article here)
Be that as it may, any nut is a great addition to your diet. They provide protein for muscle and plenty of fat to power your body through workouts!
