Re: Medicine Ball Cleans

I am proud to say I don't personally know anyone who has done one of these. If I ever witnessed a friend performing this, the next move he would perform would be catching a medicine ball with his...

Re: good strength exercise for BJJ with gi

Snatch and press your bodyweight. Find you some blue plates--the real ones, not the illegitimate crap--and work with em. C&J with 2 on each side, squat with 3, and deadlift with 4. You will find that...

Re: Compensating on barefoot lifts w/a leg length discrepancy?

Hey Frederic. George is banned, and Garrett is under self-imposed exile. Lynne recently sent me to the naughty corner; I get no sharp objects, and they have to read my mail before it sees the light...

Re: Compensating on barefoot lifts w/a leg length discrepancy?

There are structural and functional discrepancies. As Lincoln said, structural is rare. But that doesn't mean you should just tough it out, and it's not always easy to get it fixed.

A common problem...

Robb Wolf

The only suprise here is that the "community" is in shock. HQ has become increasingly despotic in handling affiliates and increasingly inept at programming main page. The quality of people that have...

Re: 2 Hands Anyhow anyone?

It's more of a fun thing to do than a training focus. Try it for the hell of it after you're doing other stuff. Otherwise, you'll have to start doing the bent press.

We have safer, more efficient...

Re: Dropping the bench press from SS?

I love the bench press hate. You people seem to think an exercise is not functional if you do not mimic the movement exactly in nature. By that thinking, we should assume a squat only helps when...

Re: 2 Hands Anyhow anyone?

Jim, nice work!

Anyone who purports to train with weight should recognize this exercise. You should also attempt this exercise, at least for fun and to pay homage to the strong men of the...

Re: Dropping the bench press from SS?

If you're pressing 55kg, you're really not in a position to make determinations about strength.

Your triceps are weak. Guess what exercise you can do to strengthen them? On press day, follow it with...

Re: I'm an idiot...and I've got rhabdo

Enough that I don't feel sorry for anyone who rhabdo's themselves this way.

Besides rhabdo and getting a little tired, what do high rep roman chair situps do for you? Every time you train, you...

Re: Whats next? What do you "do" with fitness?

True. There is a threshold amount that everyone probably needs. There is a greater amount that makes things comfortable. Then there is the point of obsession, where constant talk and bragging about...

Re: Different types of Strength Programming

Of course you disagree, Sean. Your CFT is 490 and you're trying to create your own fitness system.

Re: Different types of Strength Programming

As a self-admitted newb, you need to log off, chalk up, and spend 5 years under a bar without worrying about all this other crap. Do 3-5 sets of 3-5 reps in the basic lifts--squat, bench, deadlift,...

Re: CrossFit Wichita Falls Programming

This thread has turned into poo. It's too bad because Justin's program, IMO, is the best expression of hybrid training for GPP to come along.

The biggest problem with most people is that they don't...

No.

Justin fails to mention that he subjects his trainees to nonsensical organic chemistry homework on the chalk board and doing pushups in dog pee. That's the secret...

Re: In Defense of Athletics

Gold jacket...green jacket...I don't know what any of that crap is. But do it with Ray Lewis barreling down on you, and you've got yourself an audience.

Re: Seeking Programming Mentor

Interesting, Tish. I'd suggest adding a few items to this exercise.

You should make a short list. Don't post it or send it out to your respondents yet.
1) What performance goals did you have for...

Re: Any other Judokas here?

Yes, hang power cleans IF you are compelled to do something like FGB (I also swapped 2-KB high pulls for the rows last time I did it).

I prefer PC over HPC. I was just talking about HPC in the...

Skibicki's necromancy has revived me to talk some judo. Damn him.



You can! I've been working on that with my guys in a traditional JJ class. We start with boxing skills, then move to trapping....
