RECOMMENDATIONS

Didn’t have any relevant conversations about stuff this week so here’s one I like

At home I enjoy making coffee through my AeroPress. It’s the closest thing to espresso (or cold brew) you can make if you have ground coffee/tea and hot water. No large machine necessary!

It’s superior to a french press for solo drinkers, and also fantastic for travel. The one thing I don’t like is that you use paper filters per use. Recently through Instagram I got to talking to one of the owners of Caffeine & Kilos and they mentioned that I should pickup a Fellow Prismo: it replaces the cap/filter portion of the AeroPress with a cleaner cap option and reusable stainless steel filter.

So good.

UPCOMING EVENTS

We’ll be sponsoring The OUTwod Power of Pride along with our friends at Rocket CrossFit, CrossFit LOFT, and FUELhouse Gym:

Check it out, save the date, call out a swole mate and register!

Nathan and Guillaume mobilizing prior to lifting

Mobilizing trouble spots prior to lifting is another way to stay successful in the gym. If your rack, receiving, and/or overhead positions leave something to be desired then it would benefit you greatly in spending two minutes or more before class working into those tissues.
