Out of CrossFit's 10 General Physical Skills, inadequate strength is one biggest limitations in people's ability to progress as CrossFitters.  If you feel like your strength is lacking, consider Coach Jeremy's 8 Week Strength Intensive.  We've got one slot left in both cycles that start this week. Get on it!

Bierkraft goes Paleo!
Yes, it's true. Ben Granger, owner of the raddest beer shop and brand-new SBK member, has added a special Paleo option to his menu of sandwiches, buns and brats.
Ben has devised perhaps the best food item ever: meat wrapped in meat, on a stick. Enter, the Bottle Rocket. These tasty concoctions look like corn dogs, but are made entirely of meat. Each weekend, Ben will be serving up a different Bottle Rocket - a perfect post workout treat.

This weekend's Bottle Rockets are:
Ground lamb rolled in pistachios, wrapped in pickled collard greens and covered in homemade "lambchetta" (panchetta, only with lamb belly)
AND
A pinwheel of chicken sausage, caramelized ramp leaves, black trumpet mushrooms and lamb neck, wrapped in lambchetta

Damn.

Bierkraft is on 5th Avenue between Berkeley and Union
