Re: tractor tires

Thanks, and yes it is. A pickup truck comes in handy up here and the Ranger is small enough that my girlfriend can drive it.

Re: tractor tires

I went today and picked up the one in the picture for $15. They had acres of suitable tires to be had. It was worth it to get my pick of the tires. I was able to find exactly what I was looking for,...

Re: tractor tires

I moved to Denver and was wondering the same thing. Since I would assume others local to Denver would also like something more specific than, "ask at tire stores," I thought I'd post what I found. As...

Re: EU affiliates against CROSSGYM

If CrossGym wins, it means anyone can open a CrossGym gym. Crossfit will still be protected, just not CrossXXX. Crossfit didn't invent any of the exercises, so they can't argue from that stance....

Re: CAP barbells

Yes, quality does vary quite a bit. I have two, both picked up from Craiglist purchases. It gives me three bars, so I can do circuits without wasting time changing weights. They are both pretty thick...

Re: Strength & Conditioning books

I love The Strongest Shall Survive by Bill Starr. As an athlete, I've found it very helpful as most books are aimed at just the weightlifting aspect and don't talk about how it fits into your full...

Re: How maany times a week to train?

While there is, obviously, an element of factitiousness in Louie's quote, I think he did mean it that way. It obviously sticks in your brain, which achieves part of the intended goal. The other...

Re: Eating when ill...what did our ancestors do? FAO Robb Wolf also!

Keep in mind that basing your dietary choices on a time-period when people often just died when they became ill might have adverse effects on your health.

Re: D1 strength coaches

Someone with a CSCS certification might be able to help you obtain contact info, as any D1 strength coach will have that certification. Barring that, you can go to the football team's website and...

Re: "squats and milk"

Re: Crossfit gym under $1000?? Yep I think so

Coca-Cola also works to remove rust (or diluted Phosphoric acid, if you can find it). I have a bar like that that I restored. It was rusted so I couldn't turn the sleeves (even locking it in a vice...
