New Supplement Offerings for Q4 2017!

by admin in Announcement | Leave a comment

Division St. CrossFit is excited to announce a new lineup of supplement offerings! This collection has been specifically curated, drawing products from three different companies to provide a wide array of options to accommodate individuals of all needs (vegetarians/vegans: please contact Coach JJ if you are looking for a post-workout supplement/protein).

 

A quick word about post-workout supplementation/nutrition:

We don’t talk enough about post-workout nutrition but, nonetheless, it is vitally important to your body’s ability to recover, repair, and grow. Sparing you the science of it, post-workout supplementation will help you feel less sore after workouts and more able to tackle the next day’s workout. Additionally, progress over time will improve more rapidly due to your body’s ability to adapt to training stimuli more quickly and efficiently. A good post-workout nutrition protocol would look like this:

  1. Within 30-60 minutes post-workout (It does not need to be immediately after the workout. In fact, it is recommended to wait at least 15-30 minutes post-workout.), consume a shake consisting of 20-30 g of protein and somewhere between a 1:1 to a 2:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein. If extras like amino acids, specifically the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine, or creatine are added, even better! At minimum though, protein or amino acids should be consumed post-workout to start the process of protein synthesis.
  2. Within 60-90 minutes post-workout (or 30-60 minutes post-workout shake), a complete meal including protein, carbohydrates, and fat should be consumed.

 

With that in mind, please scroll down to review the new supplement offerings! Explanations of each product have been provided, along with recommendations for specific populations. In addition to post-workout recovery supplements, we are also offering an omega-3 supplement as well as a hydration formula. Additional “supplement stack” discounts will be provided to orders which include the omega-3 supplement along with another product! So, do your body a favor and take advantage of these initial offering deals (supplement stack discounts are for THIS initial pre-order ONLY) – pick your omega-3 and post-workout formulas now!

(BCAAs work best in the presence of other amino acids.) Added bonus: tart cherry is included to reduce post-workout delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) (this is clinically proven….it’s science.).

Spikers Make It to the Semi-Finals!….and Lose Again (7/27)

by admin in Announcement | Leave a comment

Despite hurricane-level winds, the Spikers came out strong and managed to win their first playoff game! Then, in the semi-finals, the Spikers tried to dive, serve, and power-bump their way to victory but fell short in the third game. Even though we lost it was another successful season for the Spikers!

Spikers Fall, Yet Again! (7/13)

Despite bringing in a new ringer, Cara, the Spikers couldn’t hang with the competition. Hoping our fortune improves when we start playoffs in two weeks!

– Captain Kate

Spikers’ Streak Continues! (7/6)

by admin in Announcement | Leave a comment

Despite playing a hard fought match, the Spikers fell yet again. Highlights included: Jen Neal made the play of the game when she stuff-blocked a guy, we were glad Spikers alumni Jenna made it back, and Maher’s dives continued to steal the show!

– Captain Kate

Farewell (for now!) Coach Jodi!

by admin in Announcement, Event | Leave a comment

ATTENTION, please:


Coach Jodi just got word that an army school she has been waiting to get into (due to funding) just let her know that it….is….TIME! But, she only has FOUR days to get ready to leave until AT LEAST September, if not likely longer than that. So, tomorrow’s 6:30 pm class will be Coach Jodi’s last class for us for awhile and I’ll be firing up the grills so that they’re ready to go by the end of that class. We’ll still be holding a 7:30 pm class too, so you’re welcome to get your workout in then and join the group for some food afterward. I’m sure we’ll be hanging out much later than that!

 

Hope to see everyone tonight!

JJ

 

PS Please BYOeverything you’d like to eat/drink since we may not have the opportunity to pick up supplies in advance. Thanks!

Another ‘L’ for the Spikers’! (6/22)

by admin in Announcement | Leave a comment


After leaving it all on the court, the Spikers’ came up short in week 5. The high speed winds and communication could be to blame. But don’t worry, the bye next week gives ample time to come back stronger than ever for game 6.

– Honorary Captain Alisha

Spikers’ Losing Streak Continues! (6/15)

by admin in Announcement | Leave a comment

After a hard fought battle, the Spikers fell again in Week 4. Even though Maher returned and gave it his best effort, and many solid dives, the team was no match for ‘Mr. Jersey Shore’s’ spikes. One positive was that serving was much better – hoping to keep that going for the rest of the year!

– Captain Kate

Congrats and Thank You to our 4th Annual Frank’s Little Murph Adventure Participants and Donors!

by admin in Announcement | Leave a comment

First off, I am astounded by the support you guys showed over the last week for Frank’s Little Murph Adventure and The Arts of Life. It’s amazing that our little community can come together so quickly and raise a significant amount of money in such a short time. So for all that, JJ, Megan, The Arts of Life, and I and the rest of the D St. coaches truly thank you guys and gals from the bottom of our heart.

 

All the gushy stuff aside, let’s get down to the numbers. In the short amount of time that we posted on DSCF Members Only Forum we have raised a total of $1,477! That’s $1,140 from pre-donations and $337 from pledges for the athlete’s performances on Saturday. That is around a $650 increase from last year, which is absolutely amazing. Dang, I can’t thank you guys enough.

 

With that being said, please plan on bringing cash in before the end of the week. You can hand it off to myself or JJ preferably, but if neither of us are around then go ahead and give it to one of the coaches, they’ll know what to do with it.


Extremely grateful,

Coach Lucas
