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!

Here’s one way to scale rope climbs, while allowing you to practice the most difficult aspect of rope climbing- the locks!

Let’s try to make the biggest splashes and see what kind of big sets you can hit for each exercise. 2-3 sets would be cool, but unbroken would be even cooler! Take as much rest as needed during transitions, but see if you can get big sets.
