Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Let's not forget: it was the 17.3 video (which was a simple workout) that had something so suspicious in it, that they requested the 17.5 video. I want to see the 17.3 video.

And to boot, knowing he...

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

If you dig a little deeper into this guy, it just gets worse and worse. In 40-44 division, he goes from 3,048th to SECOND in just two years, and then (at first pass) winning this year?? PED...

Re: Metcons for sale

So I'm assuming this was some kind of joke. I DM'd and emailed the guy about a pair and never heard anything back. :confused:

Re: 1000lbs club CrossFit Total

I just realized I'm pretty damn close (current max's are 315#, 445# and 165# = 925#). Back squat is low relative to my DL (years of thinking I had to nurse my knees, so I picked up stuff with my...

Re: Crossover Symmetry

The cords at our box are mounted to our yoke, so you can just slide the set of cords to eye vs. knee height. If mounted in a home gym, just put two pairs of eye bolts in the wall, one at eye height,...

Re: Gastric sleeve.

I'm going to profess my opinion comes solely from frequently watching TLC programs on gastric surgery, but here goes:

The surgery isn't magic. It doesn't alter body chemistry or cleanse your pantry...

Re: Compex Sport Elite - $650 Shipped

I don't know if it's true but I think Compex (and I assume MarcPro, too, since they're in that same price stratosphere) claim their unit is not just TENS. I admit, I'm skeptical, how different could...

Re: 2014 45-49 Fittest on the Planet goal

Vic, I'm 42, and have a head-in-the-clouds goal that maybe by 45-49, I can at least have a couple years of serious training under my belt to see if I could push to your level. A guy from my box was...

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Watching the awards, I believe Bailey, Smith and Ence were the only athletes that won more than one event (and they each only won 2)? I think that speaks volumes to the programming being very...

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Rory articulated this in between heats. The rep scheme is how you "stack" a triangle. Picture billiard balls in the rack, starting from the top down:

First three rows, 1 + 2 + 3 = 6
Next row is...

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

16 y/o Paladino has a listed C&J 1RM of 315#.

THREE FIFTEEN.

I'm tapdancing around humbling, motivating and demoralizing reading about these kids. They're amazing.

Re: WOD Terminology Question

I agree with Michael. That's a 3 partner workout. Partner 1 is doing a 100m sled drag, which sets the pace for each "rotation." Partner 2 is doing wall balls and Partner 3 is doing deadlifts while...

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I get Scott's point. It does seem like the 14-15's are finishing their wod's "kinda tired" and the 16-17's are "freaking exhausted." The boys in the chipper were throwing that 70# sandbag without a...

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Thanks, Ludovic. Wonder if everything is ok with her (injury, personal life, etc..)?

I agree, I kept saying, "holy cow, that guy's 55?!? That guy's 48??!" Great standards to strive for.

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

The video Jayme posted showed the "legend" of the sport saying these athletes may fall off the first time they try to go up on their knees. I think they'll pick it up quick, but losing even 1-3...

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread
