|This week begins “Crush Week” at CrossFit South Brooklyn, where athletes will be hit with a series of challenging workouts eventually earning a week’s respite. The weekend started off with a CF Total on Saturday, followed by the Dumbbell Bear today, so I anticipate needing lots of those handy dandy dixie cup ice applicators on standby.
Although they’re incredibly effective in aiding recovery, making them has been a real drag. Like most freezers, the interior surface isn’t flat causing the dixie cups to sit off axis, often spilling, and making a nasty mess. David Osorio from CFSBK used to put a plank of wood in the gym’s freezer. While that worked, it’s just not practical for a home freezer.
So here’s my $4 stackable solution: a package of Ziploc large rectangular storage containers.
|Just fill the containers with your dixie cups, each container fits 12, and then add water.|
|Cap them and stack in the freezer – there’s plenty of space in the fridge for essentials (e.g. tequila, frozen scallops and fish fillets).|
|Once they’re frozen, just peel the paper to expose the “dosage” you’re looking for.
