Re: Weight loss question on LC Paleo

that seems like at least a 1000 calorie deficit per day.
maybe switch your macros up to 40/30/30 and eat real carbs (like potatoes and rice). something obviously isn't working. and 1700 calories a...

Re: Globo gym competition prep

Re: Push Ups

1. do more push ups: do slow eccentric push ups, push ups where you pause at the bottom (chest not touching floor), slow concentric push ups. that will help a ton

2. get stronger triceps: yes...

Re: Opinions on hang clean

those side by side pictures? I'd take the one of the left over the picture of the girl. this 'layback' that you seem to think is a good idea, isn't.

Re: Opinions on hang clean

i disagree. the straightness of the pull is good. just don't need to use your arms to get the bar UP, use your shoulders and traps to get the bar up and then arms to pull under. bar doesn't...

Re: Snatching Around Shoulder Injuries

I will echo with what everyone says. I just spent 5 months not lifting AT ALL. it sucked. get your shoulder super strong and THEN snatch. patience. you won't get anywhere otherwise.

Re: New T-Nation Steroid Article

1. just like he said, crossfit doesn't use WADA or USADA to do the testing. so they use someone cheaper who most likely doesn't have tests that are as good.

Re: How thorough is the crossfit games drug testing? Surely some athletes are doping

it's also crossfit hq doing the testing, no? not an independent 3rd party or USADA/WADA? then it's all BS to me. even if froning or someone else who is 'known' tested positive (not that they'd even...

Re: Snatch problems

from beginning to end i see a lack of tightness in your back/core. arch your back hard and squeeze your abs!

then keep your butt down and drive with your legs to get the bar off the floor!
