Message From Dan Conway
By Andy Hendel

Hey CFC gang - it's me, your old pal Dan. I bet you're all saying "Dan, who? We haven't seen that guy in ages." You're right. And I'm sorry. I had to do a little family quarantine time in August and in September I moved out to Belmont. As a result, I have had to make the immensely difficult decision to leave CFC... Does that mean I'm gone for good? No. You're not that lucky. I'll come by and refuse to do double unders, complain about burpees and all the usual Dan stuff I usually do. What I WON'T be doing is trying to "replace" y'all with another gym out here. I can't. I won't. I'll always be a member of Crossfit Charlotte no matter where I live. I want to thank Andy and Dina for making me fe...

Carbohydrate Selections: The Right Carb for the Right Job
By Andy Hendel

Whole, unprocessed carbohydrate sources have significant health and performance benefits that might go unnoticed with macronutrient counting. For example, a doughnut and an orange can both provide the carbohydrate grams one needs, but other constituents should be considered. Even honey has more health value compared to table sugar due to the vitamins and minerals it contains. This brief describes some of the factors to consider when selecting carbohydrates, including total carbohydrate grams. While the brief is not meant to be exhaustive, this information can help someone make more optimal choices based on needs and goals.


When Selecting a Carbohydrate, Consider These Components:

Make Every Calorie Count: Dialing in Nutrition and Exercise
By Andy Hendel

The energy balance hypothesis suggests you can achieve perfect health by counterbalancing nutrition choices with physical activity; “calories in, calories out” is a popular motto among proponents of this model for nutrition and exercise.


The hypothesis has enjoyed popularity among public health organizations and large food corporations. In fact, sometimes the two groups work together on initiatives, such as Exercise Is Medicine, to promote the idea that we need to “eat less and move more.” Such arrangements are mutually beneficial, because they allow public health groups to deflect attention from their flawed nutrition guidelines and allow Big Food to keep selling junk...

Row Pro: Calories Vs. Meters
By Andy Hendel

Jonathan Burns remembers the soul-sucking pain of a 2-kilometer ergometer test.


His best score in his rowing prime was 5:56—an all-out effort that left him in a physical shambles, he said.


“I would be lying there recovering for two days after a 2-kilometer test,” said the former college and national-team rower and current owner of CrossFit Coeur D’Alene in Idaho.


“We would taper before them, and then you couldn’t do anything after. We’d be shot. Maybe we’d go for a light paddle the next morning, but that was it.”


All high-level rowers can relate to Burns’ experience. It’s incredibly difficult to recover from a 100 percent rowing e...
