Matt demonstrating a "belly to bar" pull-up.

***Check out Joey's Paleo Journal for a simple asparagus recipe to add to an arugula salad and then post to comments any other recipes that you think might also go with the asparagus.

Crossfit Hero WOD: "Nate"

AMRAP in 20 min of:


  • 2 Muscle ups (full lock out)
  • 4 Handstand push-ups (head to floor)
  • 8 Kettlebell swings (2 pood overhead)


* If you are unable to do a muscle up, do a burpee to pullup

* If you are unable to do two hand stand pushups in a row, substitute regular pushups - chest & chin to floor.
