Feedback on the Whole30 rocks, and I LOVE how you've all adopted the title so quickly. Thanks for jumping on the bus with that one - I'm glad it caught on. We've been hard at work on the web site redesign, and we've got some local nutrition stuff in the works, so stay tuned for more developments.
This weekend, however, I'll be doing nothing but PLAYING. I'm heading to CrossFit USA in Berlin, CT, to help at Tucker's sold-out gymnastics cert. This is my fourth cert with Tucker, and they just keep getting better. He's constantly refining his material, adding new and innovative techniques to make you a better athlete. And his perspective on CrossFit, gymnastics and the role of strength and technique should not be missed. (Warning: don't you dare mention a kipping ring dip in his presence. Shudder.) You'll hear "build the strength, learn the movement" so often, you'll start repeating it in your sleep - as you should be - and he'll teach you how to incorporate that mantra into your daily training in a safe and effective manner.
I'll also be heading to my friend Vadim's box - CrossFit Long Island City in New York - on November 14th and 15th to help Tucker at another cert. That one is not yet sold out... and there's another reason that weekend will be a special one. Gillian Mounsey is staging a charity event that evening at CrossFit LIC, hosted by Tucker and attended by all the CrossFit superstars. (There's a rumor that Coach Glassman himself will be up in the spot.) So sign up for the cert, donate $25 to "Hope for the Warriors" and spectate the charity event on Saturday night - it's a double-fun weekend. (Triple, if you count the fact that I'll be there.) Register through the Main Site, and if you're heading to either cert, drop me a comment and let me know you're coming.
This week's upcoming Whole30 check-in (to be posted on Friday at noon) comes from a reader's comment on the site earlier this week. I love pulling your questions and comments into my posts, so keep them coming.
