Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Absolutely. That's why the competition organizers have a responsibility to make these competitions as safe as is reasonable, because the athletes won't keep themselves safe. They'll do whatever it...

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

I think most everyone is in agreement that this is an unacceptable number of identical injuries and cannot simply be brushed off as "well, it's a competition". A lot of questions can come out of this...

Re: Gslp

A couple years later I still think it's a very solid novice program.

I have a couple neighbors who lift with me and I keep their programming pretty close to a GSLP format. I always end upper body...

Re: Knee sleeves

I had Tommy Konos and would replace them when they started to tear. TKs were somewhat known for doing that. Mine would last about a year. Have some nordic somethings now. Should be more durable. I...

Re: What Do You Eat First Thing In AM?

Especially if I'm cutting weight, I don't eat a ton first thing in the morning. But I will have some protein, fats, and often green or black tea.

Lately, my preferred fast morning thing that...

Re: Always getting injured by deadlifting

Please come back down the road and give us a review of the material. I'd love to hear your experiences and whether or not it helped you get back to deadlifting confidently.

Re: Always getting injured by deadlifting

If you can't find a really good physio then self education may be helpful. A powerlifter I know speaks very highly of Dr. Steward McGill's work. He has worked with a variety of strength athletes and...

Re: fitness for a 3 yr old. just keep them outside?

I think you're being a little crazy. I haven't worked with 3 year olds (I taught gymnastics classes with kids as young as 6), but I don't think they are going to be ready for anything structured like...

Re: Creatine Question

Yes, very safe, even for long term use.

Creatine has been exhaustively studied for safety and efficacy, though those studies do tend to use Creatine Monohydrate, not HCL. I've never seen anything...

Great, concise, advice, Chris. Do you adjust those recommendations for women? I'm working with a 150 lb female CrossFitter and presumably she would need less protein than me (a 225# male), though...

Do you have more details? Like how spread out the events will be? And you mentioned it's a multiple day event, but then your list of 5 events seem to all be on the same day.

If 5 workouts are spread...

Re: Platform noise issues

Not sure what you mean by playground style mats, but start with the cheap option first. Give the camping pads a try if the gap is 1/2 inch or less. It will cost you like 20 bucks. If it doesn't work,...

I have found lots of gym uses for cheap Walmart camping pads like this one:

Hmm, interesting. If you have a lot of time to work with them I guess I can see how that would be helpful. Can't do a terrible legs splayed out, low elbows "football clean" if you're doing a full...

Re: Proper Body Weight Gain?

Yeah, I agree with others: don't obsess about macros. Especially if you're trying to gain weight, just hit your protein goal and then if you're eating a varied diet the carb and fat levels will...

Re: Not training the snatch?

Re: Redefining the relationship between Power and Intensity

I think I can help fill in a gap in the OP.

The term POWER has a scientific and a "dumbed down" colloquial definition that both get used, and often conflated, in these discussions.

Re: EMOM

Rich,

What movements are you using for your EMOMs? Most CrossFit programs that put in EMOMs use heavy weight and low reps, such as 2 power cleans on the minute. Sounds like you're working more on...
