Re: The Handstand

It's definitely a skill that's more awesome the bigger you are...if i see a 150 pound guy doing a handstand i won't be too impressed...but a 250 pound guy...that's always amazing

Re: WOD Substitutions

It's still a legitimate concern in that you don't want to be doing heavy lifting with the same muscles two days in a row...following the posted wods 1 day or 1 cycle behind makes substituting and...

Re: should i......?

I would say it depends on your reason for only doing the wod 3 times a week...lack of equipment or time? or interference w/ another sport? or do you just need more rest in between workouts?

Re: What exercises aren't part of crossfit programming, but you think should be?

Re: Nov 19 WOD - Quick Q's

I don't think it really matters what you set the gravitron to...as long as you are doing somewhere between 4-20 pullups per set you should be good... important thing is just that you increase pullups...

Re: How long does it take?

you should be improving on your times and weights immediately...as far as doing the workouts with decent times...could take years considering some of these workouts ask for things like 100 pullups...
