Re: Crossfit/ sport specific

I've been thinking about these things as well. I coach varsity basketball in an urban school. My kids need to get stronger and more athletic overall (and just better at basketball). You can get a lot...

Re: Nike Metcon

Eastbay has a few sizes left in various colorways if you want to order without trying them on. Not listed as backordered like another new release I was looking at was listed.

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Don't forget, the Games qualifying process is going to be different next year (not announced how yet), so that could really throw things off once you get to the games. Could be more CE and Cal guys...

Re: Have we all seen this yet?

I would assume that HQ and Rogue have more of an in-kind sponsorship relationship regarding equipment. Something along the lines of Rogue is the sole provider of Games equipment, all the equipment is...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

It's a cool event, but the camera work is awful.

On a separate note, just got back from doing a land version of "The Beach". It sucked.

400 M run
50 single arm KBT (45#)
30 burpees
800 M row
30...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

But the commentators keep telling you how great this is for spectators. WHY DON'T YOU LISTEN TO THEM???

Re: 2014 CrossFit Games - call it

Again, why? They've already got the space for the whole week, why not use it? The sport is growing, people are staying in as they get older, and the "box family" aspect is the core of what crossfit...

Looked like heats were based off of standings after The Beach.

Re: Reebok only apparel at Crossfit Games?

We're all missing the REAL crime here: Alex Nettey isn't lifting in his J's and Blackhawks t-shirt.

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

A few random thoughts...

I really like this format for this OHS event- very easy to watch.

I wonder how Akinwale's psyche is after getting beat by a pound.

I hope Fortunato can get some rest and...

Re: Reebok only apparel at Crossfit Games?

This is not true. Adidas is the official clothing sponsor of the NBA, but players get mega deals from Nike and Reebok. Reebok used to sponsor the NFL clothing (it's now Nike), but players still...

Event 1: 185lb bear complexes until you drop the bar. See how bad they want to fry their grips right off the bat.

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

The SW producer is driving me crazy. They keep cutting away right as someone is about to lift to show Nichols load his plates or chalk his hands. Didn't see any Spealler or Fjord, or Hack's third...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I thought that too. The % WOD could be the surprise event and could even be later in the weekend when everyone is more fatigued.

I wouldn't be surprised to see heavier events in the games to create...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I was meh on the programming at first, but I appreciated his reasoning. All of these people are incredibly strong - we all know that. But what else can they do?

Re: Olympic lifts and bench press?

If you're new to ply lifting, you're going to struggle for a while period. It took me a very long time to get a solid technique down and undo a lot of my previous bench work. I still try to bench...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

During the SoCal regionals, Castro said absolutely nobody is getting in that didn't qualify. That means no Briggs, no Valenzuela, no Tovar.

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I agree in the SW, it's going to be a dog fight. Fjord will be a tough out too.

Re: Regional Competitor - "CF is not a Sport"

Exactly. Michael Phelps couldn't swim at Michigan because he had sponsors. Snowboarding doesn't pay Shaun White, his sponsors do, but they are most certainly considered "pros".

Re: Regional Competitor - "CF is not a Sport"

Your third paragraph is in direct contradiction with itself. If you have a sponsor for doing an activity, you are a pro.

In the early 90's, Michael and the Bulls made the playoffs each year, even...

But they're journalists. Their job is to find stories to make the rest interesting for us. Every one of those athletes has an interesting story (overcoming an illness or injury, work/life balance,...
