Re: What Ax To Get?

I've got a Fiskars. It is well balanced, light and cuts through thick trees easily and quickly. It is the most fun to use tool that I own.

Re: Thruster Advice Requested

Are you paying to use this place? Consider investing in your own equipment, a little at a time, and eventually you can stop paying dues to just be frustrated when you can't even do what you want.

Re: Dead Lift Grip

Yep. You can get some nice bruises under your thumbnails.

Re: Dead Lift Grip

Hook grip takes some getting used to, but it is worth it for me for the fact that with the mixed grip it can be hard to keep the torso and hips aligned. I suffered some pretty severe hip trauma while...

Pronounce Tabata?

I think the title kind of says it all. I have heard several pronunciations and am wondering what is the correct way to say Tabata.

Re: How Many Five Year Olds Could You Take in a Fight

33. I know I could do better if I had some experience as a fighter. I have to get some of my friends to teach me. Of all the ways I could go, being attacked by 34 five year olds seems pretty bad...

Re: From 0-10 pull-ups by July, how?

Not enough information. I see a male with 0 pull-ups and I see a pretty serious deficit as far as general fitness. Is he quite heavy? If so he needs to cut as much weight as he safely can. I might...

Re: Critique My MEBB Plan

Another idea is to rotate 4 times through with the sets of 5, then 4 times through on the singles plan. I wouldn't worry about heavy deads and squats in the same cycle until it becomes an issue. Try...

Re: 400m time guidelines

I don't think putting 2 minutes as untrained is unfair. It's just a category. If you don't like being in that category work hard and move up. Plenty of people who have not trained in a long time...

Re: what is your occupation?

Chris, would I be out of line to ask about your background before getting into your current field?

Re: what is your occupation?

Re: Where to get a decent kukri?

Thanks for all of the replies. I am currently very busy at work, hence the long delay in me getting back to this topic, but I will weigh the advice I've been given, make a purchase and let you know...

Re: Do you have a crossfit related blog?

I keep a training log at usefulstrength.blogspot.com. Pretty dry stuff though. Can't imagine anybody coming back twice.

P.S.
It makes me look like a ***** right now because I have a separated...

Where to get a decent kukri?

I'm looking to get a kukri to clear brush with. I got this really crappy machete and it is not holding up well, so I wanted to get something with a little thicker blade. I am looking for a working...

Re: Mats for garage gym

The Target mats are way overpriced for what you get and are not the solution you are after. Get horse stall mats from a Quality Farm and Fleet, Rural King or whatever type of feed store is near you....

Re: pullup question

Until you have the right equipment and the skill dialed in you will just have to do deadhangs. The amount of work being done is the same in both, it just gets done in a different manner. I did a LOT...

Re: Should I scale the WODs or take forever doing them?

At one time I think it was 'decided' on these boards that 40 minutes was about as long as a WOD should take. If strength is enough of an issue that workouts are taking over an hour I would strongly...

Re: 30 muscle-ups: significant PR

Brandon et al, I would argue that since Rx'd is evidently no negative based on videos, that is valid. The reason I do the negative on my singles is because I know that eventually to keep improving my...

Re: 30 muscle-ups: significant PR

Valid (if somewhat obvious) point about the decreasing rest. Yesterday each rep was taking about 5-6 seconds until they started getting hard at about rep 22. As I say, when I can get one every 10...

30 muscle-ups: significant PR

Completed 30 muscle-ups in 5:54 yesterday, beating my old time by about 4 minutes. I wanted to share this because I really credit the strategy more than my vastly improved fitness. I set a continuous...
