Re: Butterfly pullups

Terry,

You might want to try the "top-to-top" method shown in this video. The video is on the longer side (8:50), but we've seen some really good results this...

Re: Data available? See video of Coach Glassman at National War College 2009

If I'm not mistaken, he is referring to the department in this journal article:

Re: Fructose

Jason,

I believe you are misreading Coach's statement. What he's saying is that for decades he has given the advice to eat fruit instead of potatoes at breakfast. In light of this new research on...

Re: Did Rippetoe get CrossFit right?

Jason, this is my point. You improved dramatically in strength, for 2 years, not 6 months, doing a program usually requiring less than 30 minutes of training per day. A program where the main focus...

Re: Did Rippetoe get CrossFit right?

Here's my take:

Calling something "Exercise" implies there is no progress or direction.

Calling something "Training" implies measurable progress toward something.

Re: Quick Zone Question

Alex, maybe check out CF Journal 21 (http://journal.crossfit.com/2004/05/zone-meal-plans-crossfit-journ.tpl) (wfs).

It's a classic in the CrossFit community and it has a pretty basic breakdown of a...

Re: Affiliate naming rules inconsistent?

I believe the most current naming rules do not allow the names of large geographic areas, major cities or personal names. I also believe that "CrossFit" is now required in the name. As usual,...

Re: Athlete Rating Scale 1-10

We do it on beyond the whiteboard on a 100 point scale. Julie Foucher is a 96. It is pretty consistent with what we would expect our member's levels to be at our gym. We have some details on this...

Great news! It's always better when it turns out that way.

Re: How to deal with an athlete that does not want to warm up

It sounds like this might be the real problem. It's always a challenge transitioning people to a new way of doing things, especially when they liked the old way.

Re: How to deal with an athlete that does not want to warm up

If it were me, the first thing I would do is take a long, hard look at my warm-up. I've been asked to do some pretty extreme/off-the-wall warm-ups before, things I didn't really feel were...

Re: Cutting Stall Mats

We put a 2x4 under the mat, in line with the metal straight edge on top. This is an easy way to get the bend in the mat that Lincoln was referring to above. Don't be stingy trading out new blades. ...

Re: Tips on making horse stall mats stay...

I agree. Cut them so they are tight wall-to-wall, or do a border. We have them up to the wall on two sides and a border on the other two sides. Works perfect. Before that we had to slide them...

Re: Checking Members In

In MBO, you can also let people sign in by typing the first few letters of their name on a keyboard. We use this method because it's cheaper and they don't have to remember to bring a card in.

Kris,
I guess we do disagree. I don't believe that knees in front of the toes is a form fault when squatting with an upright torso. I'm not looking for an argument either, but I would like to know...
