Re: Wod: Tgu -wth??

Was Jeff Martone consulted as a SME before this WOD was agreed upon?

I respectfully decline to do this workout, OR program it for the FRAT Paleo Challenge the way it is. A TGU is a wonderful...

Re: Is Crossfit Mainpage dead?

Interesting. Do you know Jason personally?

I like the answer that the CF.com WOD is a starting point. I do the WODs because they are fun to compete with other people on, and it builds my sense of...

Re: Barbara 1st Rd PR

I would say you got a first round PR, but not a "Barbara" PR. I agree with the 400m/1mile analogy as stated by Justin. Did you get a good workout? Are you asking the question because you're doubting...

Zone seminar w/ Dr. Sears, Aug 8th

I'm signed up. Anyone else going?

I wish Robb Wolf would show up and get into really good discussion with him on the intricacies between different nutritional methodologies. That would be a treat!

Re: Logic behind the HPC 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 WOD

Veronica and Steven, thank you for the insight. This was my thinking as well. Although I'm new to the lifts (less than 2 years), I know a little bit about programming and figured it was the simple...

Logic behind the HPC 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 WOD

I posted this on the main site comments, but did not generate the discussion I would have liked.

"I don't like this WOD at all. I wonder what the rationale to doing this vs. full power cleans is....

Re: why does low body fat impede performance?

It's too individualistic to say. George Mounce is on the money. The optimal bf% should be a function of performance. If you are vain like I am, you'll never be satisfied with how lean you get. I...

Re: Battle of the Theorys is pure crossfit the best

Disclaimer: this is my opinion.
CF.com WODs, like Tony Budding says.

CF.com, then lots of focus on special training to address weaknesses. Volume must be controlled, so the CF.com WODs which are...

Re: Who does everything RX'ed daily?

Hi Jonathan,

I do as much as I can as Rx'ed. I supplement with CFE WODs. Sometimes I scale the CF.com WOD up if the weights are too light, but most of the time it's as Rx'ed.

So you're in Algona....

Re: Power/Explosive Wod's
