    Im sorry to hear about your head hurting after your workout. Crossfit can be taxing on your body. Its a lot of intense work that pushes your boby to extremes. Without the right nutritional base and dieting an intense workout can cause head pain in some cases. Once you get into a routine this should go away. I wish you the best of luck! If you need come more helpful tips for crossfit training you might really enjoy taking a look at Intensity and CrossFit | North Rim CrossFit. Best of luck!!

    I remember searching info for headache during hard run (cooper test last spring).
    I remember finding something on brains's oxycen deficit during anaerobic work.
    This the best I could find now. So their solution is related to breathing.

    Personally I would think some more carbs could help, since Cross fit seems to me as very anaerobic carb-sport. (Not doing it so I would not know..)
