Re: Quick questions for a study on crossFit being done at University of California.

I went to grad school at UCI, so if this had been 4 years ago, we could have had this discussion while I was doing Crossfit at the ARC. Also, you would not need to go through IRB, as this is work...

Re: Smith Machine?

My local campus gym just bought two of the Jones machines, and I was very skeptical. However, I have to admit that they were pretty fluid while trying a clean. The only problem is that the cage...

Re: What sport has the hardest training?

I trained with some of the crew team in college, and more recently I took up MMA. MMA wins this one...oh yeah, and Go Blue!

Re: Why you should never show off!

I trained in Capoeira for five years and Muay Thai and submission wrestling for one (I was even at the event where Mestre Espirro Mirim was doing the long handstand in his youtube video-it was at...

Re: Linda for your legs

I guess that is part of what I was wondering-not about the stick-but more about spinal integrity after 5 max sets of deadlifts. I do like the idea of pistols for the gymnastics element, although it...

Linda for your legs

I had this thought last night as I was walking home from the gym, "Could you design a Lynne-type workout for your legs?" My initial thoughts were a 5-round max reps back squat with your bw (I weigh...

Re: Level of Athletics....

I was a tennis player and swimmer in high school. In college I played club-level volleyball-but was never a star. Since, I managed to do well in the Capoeira ranks, but have dropped it for JKD.

Re: Tried Out For American Gladiator

Congratulations, Becca! Those shows were always designed so that the Gladiators had an advantage (they know the course, and they usually have to just disrupt, rather than stop, your motion), but I...

Another thing that seems to work is Capoeira. I don't know if it was the exercise or the association with Brazilians that did it, but it definitely works.

Thomas,

I would check the FAQs link on the left side of the main page. It has a lot of helpful information-including the common substitutions for certain exercises.

I hope Penn wins too, but you may want to check your TV around 6pm-if you are on the West Coast. It is scheduled to start at 9pm EST, if I read the UFC website correctly.
