The last few weeks have been pretty intense. Let’s back off on the seriousness a little bit and bring it back to to old school Shrugged. This week we thought it was due time for a throwback episode.  So brew up some coffee Chris Moore style, with delicate treatment via french press. Remember, don’t scorch it and ruin your fresh grind like an amateur. We share our stories and experiences about how much the CrossFit world has changed over the past 10 years.


We go into a little background of how we found it . We also share some of our competition experiences as well as how much the CrossFit Games have changed from year to year.


Have you noticed how fast nutrition and training volume in this community are evolving?


It’s cool to think back and see what parts of this fitness community are trends and which ones of those have stood the test of time.


There are some funny ass stories in here so make sure you cover your keyboard so when you spit out the black gold your sipping it doesn’t fry your Macbook, Del, or E-machines (…after all, it is a throwback).


It’s all changing and growing so fast. Towards the end we talk about where we think CrossFit as a sport is heading and what we think the future CrossFit Games Athletes will look like.


Where do you think it is heading? What do you think things will look like in 5 or 10 years?


It’s a blast to think about it. And I’m super grateful to be along for the ride.


And we’re super grateful to have you with us.


As always, thanks for listening.
