Re: Achilles tendonosis

An update:
That pain and inflammation has become so bad that my chiro has recommended not doing any "explosive" lower body stuff for at least the next 2 weeks. Thus it is with great disdain that I...

Achilles tendonosis

Hey guys,
So I have been dealing with pretty bad achilles tendonitis, which has progressed to tendonosis, for a year and a half now. It started when I was doing a 4-day split...

Re: Pre-Workout

Does anyone use anything with some protein in it before working out?

On days I am on-shift I wake up and within about an hour I am doing my workout. I think I need a little something with calories...

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

I was doing deadlifts today and in the rack next to me a trainer was teaching his client ring dips and ring pull ups using rings he set up in the squat cage. I was very impressed. They then proceeded...

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

LOL! No but it was equally as painful to watch. I can not believe people pay to be "taught" horrible "combo" movements like a sloped-back deadlift to leaning back biceps curl.

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

Saw the oddest excersize I've seen in a while.

A "trainer" was having his client do what I can best describe as a poor-form deadlift into an awkward bicep curl.

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

LOL! Me too.
They tried to give me **** for doing pull ups on the TRX cage because I wasn't "certified". I told them to relax....I've done a few pull ups lol.

No actually those classes are included in the membership fee. It's quite a large globo chain.

Re: Supplementing other Styles

I also follow a strength program with my CF workouts.
I start off by doing one of my strength lifts (bench, press, squat, dead) and then end off with a short/heavy metcon. I either grab my metcon of...

Re: Heard in the Office Today

It's not a natural movement to keep the bar straight up and down. I ruined my shoulder on a smith machine doing bench (before CF and before I knew better). It took me a long time to get my shoulder...

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

My globo also did this. They jammed it in a corner though so there is no space to bring over a bar/plates.
That and they put a sign on it saying that you must be "TRX trained" to use it. lol.

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

Two guys doing calf raises using the olympic bar with 25# plates on it in the squat rack next to mine. After that they proceeded to the calf raise machine to do yet more calf raises.

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

A guy deadlifting with alright form until he got fully standing up he would then arch his back until he was looking at the ceiling. Ouch.

Dude doing curls wearing a shirt that said in big letters on the back "I survived treadmill training".

I laughed a little inside at the thought of how "difficult" a globo's "treadmill training"...

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

The problem with no staff is, as already stated, thefts. With no staff there is nothing stopping someone from walking out with plates, dumbbells, ect.
My globo had a rash of thefts from the locker...

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

When I was a member of a non-staffed 24/7 gym, before my crossfit days, all they had were dumbells, a smith machine, and machines. No free-bars or anything that you could drop on yourself.
