Re: Fitathlon training program

Re: Rogue Stinks

Christopher,

I live in Parker, CO and have had a black zinc Ohio Bar a few months now. It stays out in my garage. Aside from remnants of chalk it looks the same as the day I got it.

Re: Getting Back into CrossFit After Tibia Fracture

Thanks Sean. I guess each time I see my PT I'll get her opinion on certain movements I'd like to bring into the rotation.

Same guy doing 5@135 has upped his style game and has been sporting the red Rogue Do-Wins. Not my cup of tea, but whatever. He has also developed another annoying and disgusting habit at the gym. ...

Re: My day with Rick Scarpulla of Ultimate Advantage (Westside 4 Athletes)

Rick had me do high rep banded squats as well. 135 bar weight plus 60 in bands at the top was tough to say the least for 20 reps. Although Saturday is usually my ME lower day we did high reps on...

Re: My day with Rick Scarpulla of Ultimate Advantage (Westside 4 Athletes)

Rick had me finish off with 3 1-minute rounds of battling ropes. I've done them before as a short warm-up, but not a minute straight for mutiple rounds. Man those suck.
