Re: Question on Linda and Bench Pressing

Many people report gains on their bench as a result of doing CF, probably from the dips, ring dips, muscle ups, overhead presses, etc. There is plenty of chest/shoulder strength work in CF. If you...

Re: "Grace" Rules

Not to beat a dead horse, but there is actually a small point here. When we are all talking about Grace, we should all be talking about the same WO. Having consistent terms makes it easier to have...

Re: "Grace" Rules

Agreed that power clean is fine according to accepted HQ definition. Hang clean would seem to be fine as well, provided that the bar first is deadlifted from the ground each rep to the hang...

Re: Crossfit on the tennis court

I used to do this drill on the tennis court where you trace the singles lines (including the service tees), facing forward the whole time. So, you'd start at one of the sidelines, run up and touch...

Re: Squat, PP, Deads, Snatch

For the love of god do not rack/unrack a squat with your back facing the pins! You need to be able to see the pins to make sure the bar is actually going back into the rack, rather than crashing...

Re: Sole Proprietor vs. LLC, etc...??

Agreed. There is no substitute for individualized legal advice on matters such as this. Every state is different, and factual differences that may not seem important to you may make a big legal...

Re: Sigg vs Klean Kanteen Metal Water Bottles

I have a KK and have noticed no metallic taste with drinking water. The opening is a little large and sometimes spills. Overall, a very good purchase, although I haven't compared it to the other...

Re: What's the Evidence that Kipping Pullups Makes you Better at Deadhangs?

This is a good question, and I'm not sure what the right answer is. All else equal, however, you can do a lot more volume in less time doing kipping pullups, which may make it a more efficient way...

Re: I miss the Girls!

Amen. Variety is important, but this seems to be equally important to keeping intensity up. But I trust that Coach knows what he is doing.

Muscle ups and wrist ripping

What's the best way to do multiple muscle ups without ripping up the skin on the edge of your wrists (or at least the best way to minimize the rippage)? I use loads of chalk. But my wrists are...

Re: deadlifts and scraped shins

Glenn,

A couple of scrapes is not unusual. But scraping the shins too much can also be evidence that you are opening your hips before your knees, causing the bar to crash into your shins. Check...

Re: Who is X-fitting at a Globo gym??

I am in the same boat as Justin and often do X-fit workouts at WSCs in the D.C. area. I have done WODs at the M and Conn WSC at lunch a bunch, but I actually prefer to go to the Clarendon WSC after...

Re: Arlington VA X-fitters (preferably North Arlington area)

Alex,

I actually live in SE Arlington, and might be able to get together. But you really should consider checking out some of the great local X-Fit resources there are in NVA and in D.C., which...

Re: Coach Riptoe's Magic Back Cure

I believe that Rip's injury proscription is for muscle belly tears. Most injuries (as Rip points out in Starting Strength I believe) are joint problems, not muscle-belly tears (although the...

Re: another lower back injury

Good advice. So I should be stretching my hamstrings, hip flexors, groin, and quads. Am I missing anything?

what is your occupation?

I thought it might be interesting to have a thread on what everyone around here in the CrossFit "community" does for a living. Plus, I'm curious.

To get the ball rolling, I am an attorney.
