Athletes competing in the 2015 CrossFit Regionals have been ramping up training volume. Regional workouts are announced only a week before the first weekend of competition. Many athletes are attempting all of the workouts, in a short amount of time, placing a huge stress on their bodies.
This week we have a special guest with us, Scott Kuehn, wide receiver for Illinois State University. Scott has been one of our early beta testers - on top of providing us with some practical feedback, he’s also a super smart dude. Read on to find out what a college athlete goes through on a typical day, how Scott puts his team’s goals ahead of his own and who he thinks is the best athlete in the NFL today (if you’re a football fan, you can probably guess his answer).
It seems as though every year, the coverage of the NFL Entry Draft gets more and more extensive. Its hard to say if the interest is driven by fans, or if the NFL is just trying to drive interest to the league during their offseason. Either way, the first round is usually fairly interesting, simply because that is where the most impactful players tend to get drafted.
There are few sporting events more steeped in tradition than the Boston Marathon. So after last year’s tragedy, you knew the event would come back bigger and stronger than ever. ‘Boston Strong’, was their slogan, and looking back, this should have been their slogan for years. The Boston Marathon has always represented strength and adversity as well as overcoming obstacles and pushing yourself to new limits. From the start line out in Hopkinton, to the rolling hills of Newton and the finishing stretch on Bolyston Street, its hard to argue with the perseverance shown by everyone involved in this race, none more so than winner Meb Keflezighi.
In the past years, we've been lucky enough to see a multitude of Canadian basketball talents get drafted into the NBA. As college stars start declaring for the upcoming draft this season, it should be no surprise that once again, there will be another strong group of Canadians preparing to enter the league. This week, we’ll like to take a look at some of Canada’s hopefuls going into this summers draft.
