Re: Can't a cheat meal kill most of your results?

If you schedule/design your cheat meals properly, they can actually help you lean out. You'll want to read about "carb cycling".

Re: Paleo/weight loss question

I'll be the dissenter and say that while you don't need to count calories, you do need to be aware of your portion sizes and really pay attention to whether you're eating "good" paleo or "bad"...

Re: Almond Milk - What is the point ?

You don't *need* milk. And I'm not a fan of fake products either (almond milk, soy milk, etc).

The only reason to use/have it is if you really like something that uses milk, but aren't drinking...

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

Actually, those are two totally different exercises...

But I agree, there's nothing inherently wrong w/a 1-arm DB bench, no worse than lunges, floor press, suitcase DL, etc, BOR, etc...

Re: Are multivitamins necessary?

From my random reading, they don't do anything if you're eating a healthy diet. They're either giving you more of what you're already getting from food, or not nearly enough of what you're missing....

Re: Uphill Rowing Video

But you'll see when people do this, they're actually making the rower scoot across the floor. Yeah, you can face the erg against the wall or have a buddy put his foot at the front feet, but you're...

Re: Best box's in Seattle area?

Yeah, this is going to be a problem. Would you allow some random dude who claims he does Crossfit just show up and do whatever in your gym? (most gyms don't have open gym hours)

Most gyms have no...

Re: Back Rounding

Can you squat deeper w/o weight (bar only, or an air squat?)?

How far can you bring your knees to your chest when laying on your back?

Can you squat deeper if you hold onto something (squat stand...

Re: Disproportional to the extreme

I guess I need to pay better attention, I'd thought synthol was the oil - it rhymes with oil ;)

So my point is he/they were injecting oil into their muscles to get additional (non-functional) mass.

Yep, it's definitely synthol (or similar), that's what Valentino used too.

Re: Hydration

Yes, this, exactly. Always being thirsty despite drinking plenty, and urinating frequently, are both medical flags - it's not normal. In fact, abnormally frequent urination is a warning sign of both...

Re: Burpee Pull Up Standards.

It makes sense to me that you would jump into the pullup, getting a boost into the pullup from your jump from the burpee.

Otherwise it would be an alternating burpee/pullups movement, not burp-ups.

Re: Paleo Shopping List

1. Vegetables
2. Meat
3. Fat
4. Spices

:p

Seriously though, there's nothing too crazy about paleo - skip processed foods, skip sugary foods. Dinner? Steak and broccoli with garlic butter....

Re: Interval method of rowing

Yep, CF only has legal protection for their trademarks. Exercise is nothing new, and anyone can run a gym - good or bad.

Re: Interval method of rowing

I agree, technically more efficient, but definitely not faster. But is your goal on the rower to be more efficient, or to be faster? :) And if you applied that pulse& glide strategy while trying to...

Re: Paleo Snacks

Larabars are a ton of (fruit) sugar, it should be considered a dessert or quick-energy bar :)

IMO, if you're doing paleo right then you don't need snacks. All that fat you eat in your diet is your...

Re: Interval method of rowing

This is only true if the flywheel is extremely low-friction and does not slow down, so that you have an efficient transfer of energy for storage. This is not true for a rowing machine - it had big...

Re: Interval method of rowing

I agree there's something to using an interval strategy - it's common in beginner marathon running, called the "Galloway run-walk-run" method.

But for rowing, where there's momentum to be conserved,...
