I would also recommend finding a committed training partner who is significantly stronger than you.

Re: Really Heavy Kettlebell Swings

I really like these. The nature of the movement allows you to get in a more mechanically advantageous position with the weight. There isn't all the sheering force you would get with a conventional...

Re: Gslp

You'll need to eat more. I like BWx17 for a general rule when trying to get strong. So that puts you at about 2600 calories. I would start at roughly 250c/250p/60f and adjust accordingly. Little...

Re: Why Maxing Out on Lifts Constantly is a Great Way to Get Hurt Fast

It really depends what you're training for. As far as training for crossfit competition is considered, it makes little sense to attempt all-out true maxes. Froning has said he rarely goes to true...

Re: Paleo with Carb Back-Loading Principals

Re: Combining Bodybuilding and Crossfit

Form follows function. If you manage to get your performance benchmarks in the same arena as the games competitors, you won't need to worry about what you look like.

Re: Competition trianing The Outlaw Way vs. CrossFit Invictus...

IMHO, the first place to start for a guy like you would be to practice all the necessary skills. Muscle ups, t2b, butterfly pullups, DUs, etc. Practice them outside of the context of a WOD. Master...

Re: sudden decline in performance

I will echo what Eric said. Do greyskull, start relatively light. In about 6-8 weeks time you should be pushing new records, and at this point you will know if it's time to move on to a more...

Re: The Official Smolov Support Thread

I just said that because I just finished running greyskull after screwing around for a couple months. I started squatting 290 for three sets of five. By the end I was squatting 345 for three sets of...

Re: Looking for some advice

Have you ever done a linear progression? Like greyskull or starting strength?

Re: Looking for some advice

Part of the problem with prescribing nutritional protocols is that a) each individual responds differently and b) it takes a while (patience) for things to change. There are so many variables that...

Re: Bribing myself with $$ to lose weight

I would follow a pretty strict IF protocol. I would only train 3x a week. High intensity moderate volume. I would keep carbs at around 100g on workout days, and less than 50g on non-workout days. No...

Re: Meal Planning

Cooking a healthy meal usually takes me less than 10 minutes. Put beef/chicken on skillet and bag of steamed broccoli in the microwave.

It doesn't help that the website is nearly unintelligible. Do they actually expect people to follow such a mess?

Re: Can't a cheat meal kill most of your results?

This kind of stuff comes down to one's individual physiology. There are guidelines and suggestions, but you have to tweak things by trial and error.

It has taken me a few years to even begin to...
