Whole 30 + Max Effort Black Box

CrossFit Potential and CrossFit Orillia, both owned by James Gordon, recently did Whole9's Whole30 program and a strengthening program know as Max Effort Black Box (MEBB) designed by Michael Rutherford. Now this was in no way, shape or form a scientific study but the results of the experiment speak volumes.

All of the participants have been practicing CrossFit for some time rather than having brand new individuals in the experiment. New individuals will automatically show significant increases in performance over a short time whereas seasoned CrossFitters may have smaller gains.

Check out the post on the Whole9 website.

This shows that cleaning up one's diet can (and does) result in positive gains.

Day 1

Here we go again with another installment of CFK's Nutrition Challenge. We have more people participating this time. We are happy to see that. I hope you will notice a difference in your body composition and performance by the end of the 6 weeks.

Feel free to log your food by clicking the button above or just post comments/questions/concerns there.

Please utilize the recipe box on the right-hand side if you come across an amazing recipe!

Train hard, eat well, and have fun!

I forgot to mention this... If you're going to measure or photograph yourself, here is what you need to do:

Take a frontal, side, and rear shot. Men in short shorts. Women in sports bra/bikini top and shorts short enough to expose thighs. Take the photos close enough so you can see definition.

Measure your waist at the belly button. Measure the widest part of your hips.

Measure your waist at the belly button, your neck at the base, and your chest (just under the armpits).
