Macro Nutrients

Megan workingout at 6am

Remember the first time you deadlifted, snatched or clean and jerked? Did it feel natural?  Was it easy to get your first pull-up? Probably not. It was most likely somewhat foreign.  Thoughts like  "What am I doing?" and "Why is it good for me?" may have entered your mind.

With the announcement of of the "Win, Win, Win" Event there has been a lot of chatter around the gym about nutrition and some of the same questions came up. "Why should I do this?" "Is this good for me?" So we would like to clear a few things up. The point of the event is to have a hands-on learning experience focused on the importance of eating a balance of macro nutrients (protein, carbohydrates, and fat). And to discover how using food to balance your hormones has a positive effect on your health, your body composition, and ultimately your performance. It is an opportunity for all of us to experiment with looking at what we eat using precision and accuracy to better our health and fitness, together as a community.
