Re: Thoughts on adding Additional Work

It looks like there is really not a lot of true strength work there at all. Almost all your heavy lifts are more for volume than strength, if I'm reading correctly. If all your heavy work is...

Re: Anybody done LASIK?

I had LASIK done in 08 and am very happy with the results. I was not very happy with the actual prep and procedure, and as someone counseled, do your homework because not all clinics are created...

Re: Diet Question- Why is this working?

I'm also a 40-ish woman who has some extra fat still to lose and has tried multiple diets over the years. I agree that you are probably not eating enough and are in for a nasty crash sometime soon. ...

Re: Too fat for crossfit?

Re: persistent health problem w/ heavy lifting

Another vote for diet here, but in addition to going Paleo for at least 30 days, I am going to suggest you are WAY under eating, especially protein and fat. Every meal and snack should contain...

Re: Trouble Sleeping?

If it's a relatively new problem, it may also be worth looking at overtraining/under eating as a potential contributor. High cortisol tends to cause that sort of problem in many cases. You may just...

Re: Been going at it for 2.5 months....

Welcome, Brian!

You don't say if you are attending an affiliate or doing your workouts at home. If AT ALL possible I would strongly recommend going to an affiliate to get some coaching on your...

Re: PaleoZone vs Morbid Obesity: An Odyssey

Keep up the great work, Luke! I had quite a lot of catching up to do. It looks like you're still going strong, which is pretty inspiring. I can't wait until you start really lifting heavy,...

Re: 8years of training...

Is there any way you could attend a CrossFit gym? To me, that would make the most sense. You would get the coaching you need and become part of a very supportive community. It would be more...

Re: PaleoZone vs Morbid Obesity: An Odyssey

Bah. As long as you pick up heavy, um, stuff, you won't turn into that guy. Super interesting observations and research on the SMR thing. I was totally fascinated. I do some, but may add even...

Re: Looking to get started with Crossfit

Yes, they are all independently owned and operated. In addition, you will find vast differences from one affiliate to another in terms of programming, on ramp programs, coaching backgrounds, price...

Re: PaleoZone vs Morbid Obesity: An Odyssey

I didn't realize before now that you're also squatting 2x per week. That is some workload for someone on a calorie deficit. I would absolutely not add more DL volume right now. In my honest...

Re: Yo Strength Programming Geeks! Request Critique for Extra Deadlift Work

Hi Luke. My gut reaction is to say don't add any more supplemental anything at this point, but focus instead on intensity within the workouts you are already doing. My other advice would be not to...

Re: RX Jump Rope Measurements

Do you have a rope that you normally use for CrossFit? I would go according to that, or maybe a tiny bit shorter because my rope "feels" a little long, even though I did order one slightly shorter...

Re: PaleoZone vs Morbid Obesity: An Odyssey

Great, great post, Patrick. I was hesitant to respond to this one because my starting point wasn't totally sedentary and I don't know what it's like to be morbidly obese, but I do know that I could...

Re: PaleoZone vs Morbid Obesity: An Odyssey

Hi Luke! Just checking in! Good to see you're back on the exercise wagon. I find the same exercise/appetite correlation. I was recently on vacation for 2+ weeks and my appetite decreased very...

Re: PaleoZone vs Morbid Obesity: An Odyssey

Re: PaleoZone vs Morbid Obesity: An Odyssey

I'm glad somebody else brought up the pictures issue. I didn't think it would be fitting for me to do it since I STILL haven't found the guts to post my own.

On a slightly different tangent, I...

Re: Post Work-Out Soreness....What do you do?

I would say you should go to the class, as you'll probably be learning a skill that will help you with future CrossFit workouts. But absolutely let your coach know how sore you are and that you...

Re: Some questions from a newbie

Eat some protein at every single meal and snack. Fruit and nuts is fine, but add some meat/hard boiled eggs or something. Don't worry too much about being 100% paleo right off the bat. I would...
