The Dry Caveman is a competition inspired by CrossFit Diablo, a pretty cool gym who does this every year after the New Year. I love the idea and would like to bring it to N6. We had an awesome time over…


Dry Caveman is a voluntary “alcohol abstention competition” – an extension of popular ancestral diets. “If they weren’t bakin’ bread, Cavemen sure as heck weren’t brewin’ the juice.”
Starting the First Monday of January, until Valentine’s day, you are all encouraged to join this competition.
If anyone “breaks”, he/she must complete a “punishment” workout. Listed at the end of this post.
The list of positive reasons to participate is long, but the most important reason reasons are your health, both short-term and long-term! We do CrossFit so that we can be healthy, yet the evidence is overwhelming that alcohol inhibits health & wellness. You’re very likely going to lose weight, feel better and make GAINZ.
As CrossFitters, our fitness exceeds that of many of our friends, family and peers, so it’s easy to overlook the adverse effects of alcohol consumption. However,  “The Dry Caveman” is a great way to “check in” on yourself.
Most people are very surprised at how difficult it is to not drink: with friends, at sporting events, with family, at parties, or maybe even after work. Warning: you may be surprised by the reaction of your friends and family!
In the end, you’ll learn a lot about yourself, improve your health and gain a sense of accomplishment! HAVE FUN and STAY DRY.
