Re: The Journey of 1000 Miles

Yes, that's the sort of thing I meant. I certainly do log my own workouts, and that lets me track improvements overtime. But the CFT seems to function as a strength benchmark or goal, and I...

Re: Impromptu Workouts

Hmmm. This is a reason I hadn't considered. Obviously if I'm scaling the WODs (which I am, big-time right now - THANK YOU BRAND-X!), then my times aren't comparable to those done as Rx'd. Still,...

How about "athletic training facility" or "total fitness center?"

Ah, very useful Jason. Do you use these yourself?

Arigato, Ocono-san. Very impressive. Where do you keep the bar and plates?

Re: The Journey of 1000 Miles

Many thanks for the links, Ben. I've heard of the Paleo diet. I'm not sure it's something I could live with for the rest of my life (my definition of a "diet"), but I will check those resources -...

Re: The Journey of 1000 Miles

Grip strength, supination strength, and extension strength are all about 70-75% of my left hand. That may improve with training, but I think about 80% is my realistic max, without the biceps on that...

The Journey of 1000 Miles

I guess I'd have to say that I'm "starting again" with Crossfit. A couple of years ago I managed to trash my right arm through a combination of bad form in the deadlift and a botched surgery to...

Re: hand / grip exercise / equipment

You beat me to it, Doug.

Iron Mind is the go-to store for everything related to hand and grip. The Captains of Crush grippers are the gold standard for straightforward crush grip strength, but...

Re: Body Fat % Testing

Quoted for truth.

I honestly don't know why BMI has become such a popular metric. The only reason I can think of is that it's simple. You measure someone's height and based on that you tell them...

Addendum: I also notice that every "New Post" that comes up on my list is in the "Starting" forum.

New Posts Incomplete?

I just noticed that the "New Posts" link doesn't bring up anything newer than about 10AM on Friday. Is this a glitch, or something that I'm causing somehow?

Re: Impromptu Workouts

Yep, Tabata anything is a standard with my non-gym workouts. Try Tabata mills with a clubbell sometime. I hear C3PO talking about "A new definition of pain and suffering." ;) Likewise Tabata...

Re: Impromptu Workouts

Thanks, Jose. I wasn't looking so much for suggestions, though, as I was actually interested in what other people do outside the gym.

Impromptu Workouts

I debated putting this thread in Fitness, and even in Community, but since I consider myself new to CF I decided to drop it here. I hope a mod will put it somewhere more appropriate if this isn't...

Re: 24-Hour Fitness may not be the best

Ah, this makes sense. Though even $20/month isn't bad.

Yes, I'd like to work out at a Crossfit gym, but at this point in my rehab I doubt I'd be able to keep up - and I haven't found a CF gym in...

Re: Body Fat % Testing

At the moment I'm tracking mine by means of tape measurement. I use two different scales and average the results, but so far they've been surprisingly close to one another.

I'm glad I discovered...

Re: 24-Hour Fitness may not be the best

If my math is right, 3 yrs for $700 is a little over $230/yr, or a bit less than $20/month. Am I missing something?

Re: 24-Hour Fitness may not be the best

The deal I got through Costco was for any club Sport level or below, nationwide. That excludes the Super-Sport clubs (of which there are 5 here in the Bay area) and the single Ultra-Sport club in...

Re: 24-Hour Fitness may not be the best

I joined 24-HF under this program. I agree that they aren't the ideal CF gym, but they're good for many purposes, they're everywhere, and they're always open. I go late in the evenings to reduce...

Re: what is your occupation?

The forum robot warned me when I hit "Reply" that the thread was over a year old. However there are quite a few active posts, so hopefully this is OK.

I'm a technical writer and business research...
