Re: AtLarge Nutrition

You can write "Nitrean+" on mine with a magic marker and ship it out. I ran dry this morning....

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

I know I'm in the minority, but I thought the burpeeswho WoD was great. Simple, do-able by anyone pretty much anywhere, and one hell of a mental grind for 7 minutes. If you've been doing the...

Re: conditioning = sham by Rip

All this discussion of "what works best" has disregarded the principle question, without which "best" cannot be determined. "What are the athlete's goals?" To lose weight? To get abzors? To perform...

Brachioradialis soreness

Not a major issue, but over the last couple of weeks I have had a vague soreness in my left brachioradialis muscle. I feel it most when I do pullups or when I do deadlifts with my left palm facing...

Re: Modified Deadlifts - question

I have been offered the recommendation to build upper back strength that improves the "pull the shoulder blades together" part of the position in order to take stress off the low back. I've been...

Re: Any have experience with once a week training?

Try it. If you get good results, then you have a good plan. If not, reset and reconsider.

Re: Programming for Push-Ups

This pushup improvement program has never failed anyone I know who has tried it, no matter how good they might already be.

Pick a number of reps. If you are not maxing out the pushups already, 6 is...

Re: weightlifting belt

Love my athlete's belt from Best Belts. Only problem is that I have lost a little fat and am considering making another hole. I don't think its tight enough.

Re: Oly shoes for LBBS?

He advocates a wide stance (and training with box squats and bands, etc, but that's another topic). I showed him my more narrow (typical CF stance) and he still advocated going without the elevated...

Re: Oly shoes for LBBS?

I was fortunate enough to attend an impromptu workshop given by a former world record squatter from Westside Barbell who recommended not using oly shoes when squatting. His rationale was (as I...

Re: Gslp

I keep expecting the numbers to dip below 10 any day now, but they aren't yet. I started at a really low weight on purpose in order to keep my form straight (lifting alone in my garage), and even...

Re: Gslp

"Regripping"

Brings up an interesting question. I started my DL really low, and am now reaching a point where I have to regrip a few times during the set. I was kind of curious if a regrip meant...

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

Did he actually have the assist device loaded? I've been to globo gyms where the only place I could find to do pullups was on the assist machine, and because of it's design I had to put my feet on...

Re: Too all short vendors & guys who have ripped shorts

I usually wear UA compression shorts under a pair of lacrosse shorts. Not the most "in" fashion today, but they do the job with no risk of tearing.

Re: What are some good Posters/Banners hanging in your box?

The CF Community's celebration of "pukie" is one of the most disappointing and embarrassing aspects of it, in my opinion.

The US Marshals used to make a poster that had criminals in prison lifting...

Re: List your Double Under PR!

49.

No, not 50. Not the 50 that was required for that set in the workout. 49. That prompted a burst of "adult language" as I set up to get one more and wrap up the movement for the workout. I...

Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

So who should it bias to be an accurate measure of fitness? This is physical stuff, and geometry matters. It's going to work best with some physiology. The average American man is about 5'9", so...

Re: Gslp

Same weight.

50 squats at bodyweight? Ouch. That might be interesting to try one day. Is it "Rx" if you rack the weight to break it up, or do you have to keep it on your shoulders the whole time?...
