All of the above plus Annie, Karen, Kelly, Nate, Isabel, Randy, Josh, and Angie. Working on another board with 30 MUs for time, 500m row, max pullups, that kind of thing, plus a few other named WODs.

Re: Working on my Whiteboard - Top Ten WOD's??

I'd go with Elizabeth, Cindy, Fran, Helen, Diane, Jackie, FGB, Grace, Nancy and Mary. Most of the different movements and rep schemes of CrossFit are well represented in this group. Some light,...

Re: Dumbbell Fran

OPT recommends in the FAQ of his blog scaling back the total dumbell weight to 60-70% of the rx'd barbell weight. So Fran (95# barbell) would be 30-35# dumbells.

Re: Don't call me a Crossfitter....

Re: Firebreathers...what minimum performance qualifies?

Darn it! I'm 11 seconds off. I like this metric, though 13:30-14:00 might be a bit more accurate.

Re: Who would you name a workout after

I think I remember a Pat Tillman WOD on CrossFit Football some time back. See if I can find it.

Re: Central Illinois Crossfitters

Nathan, as a matter of fact, I'll probably be out of town. But my partner will be around and the box will be open. You'd certainly be welcome to stop in. Let me know.

Best,
John

Re: Central Illinois Crossfitters

Nathan, I'll be in town the weekend of 5/16. PM me your info and I'll be sure to look you up. Incidently, my partner at CrossFit Will County is also from Bloomington and drops in from time to time.

Re: Body Solid Powerline Squat Stands

We've got them in our box. They're great for the price. 500# capacity. Sam's Club is the cheapest.

Re: Puma K Streets?

A number of our members have them and love them. Very comparable to h-streets. They wear them for every workout, running, Oly, name it.

Re: Angie/ Barbara - how about medicine ball standups?

If you haven't already done "Barbara", you'll probably find that regular situps on the floor are hard enough. "Barbara" is a scorcher.

Re: CFSB - Ask your questions here!

Can't speak to your first question, but regarding question 2: If you perform the high rep sets only half the time, I suppose you'll yield only half the benefit. In my experience (in the second week...

Re: Christine?

3 Rounds, yes. And it SUCKS!!! Based on the same template as "Helen" but way worse. I'd rather do "Helen" twice.

Re: Extra workout onto WOD

Personally, I would get my diet totally dialed in before I added more work. You're on the Zone and that's great, but zoning without weighing and measuring with the goal to lose that much weight that...

Re: Hybrid Program Heavy Metcons

Did it on 11/18/08, though I kinda screwed it up, so while the thrusters went down in number, the doubleunders went up from 10-50. 11:26. I think I could improve quite a bit on that now though...

Re: Sole Income

Provided you're a good trainer, CrossFit seems to sell itself. Convincing people to pay us to train them in our garage with a lot less than $1500 worth of equipment has never been an issue. With...
