Re: Overhead squat help

Chris,
The for your comments, and taking the time to respond with that info.
Even before this news, I had been eating a Paleo with a couple cheat meals per week. Right now I am eating pretty...

Re: Overhead squat help

Sadly, doctors have answered my question. I have Ankylosing Spondylitis. My Thoracic spine discs are ossified or fused together. No rotation, and no flexion.

Re: Overhead squat help

Thank you, Brendan. I'll try a vid.
I can go lower if I allow the bar to go forward. Easy with a PVC pipe, but of course not acceptable with a loaded bar. I don't lose balance, and my hips are not...

Re: Overhead squat help

Thx for responding. Unfortunately the only way I can describe the feeling is a tightness in my lower back and in the center. I know that I have a degenerative disc issue in my lower back (MRIs being...

Overhead squat help

I cannot descend more tha 8 inches into an overhead squat, even with just a PVC pipe. I can squat below parallel easily when back squatting or front squatting. At my limit there is great tension in...

Zone Carb questions

When reading nutrition labels to calculate carb blocks, should I subtract fiber? So if carbs in a serving is 38 grams but fiber is 4 grams, are the net carbs for block calculation actually 34...

Re: Zone measurements-starting

Crazy is a short trip for me, so driving myself there doesn't take very long.:yikes:

Maybe my next question has a easy quick answer. Using bacon (I know, but I love it ) is 1 oz. the cooked weight...

Re: Zone measurements-starting

Amber,
Thx, that's a great site. I'm going to visit it a lot. However, it didn't answer my question unless it has a function I haven't seen. Googling around told me that a cup of grapes weighs around...

Zone measurements-starting

I am going to "enter the Zone." Read CFJ#21 of course and a couple of the Zone books.
Being OCD and anal retentive, 1/2 cup of grapes is 1 carb block. Seems easy to under or over measure something...

Re: Programming nuts and bolts

Chris,
Thx, those are very useful comments for me. Doing the same WOD but at different weights certainly would vary the stimulus. The concern which prompted many of my comments is that as a...

Re: Did Fran use to use a different weight for thrusters?

Nick,
Believe it or not, but not everyone views CrossFit as a competition. I have no interest in comparing my times to yours, or anyone else's. What I am interested in, however, is getting the...

Re: Did Fran use to use a different weight for thrusters?

Blair,
My understanding is that the prototypical CrossFitter is 175 lbs, and that proscribed weights in certain WODs are based on this assumption. So 55% times 175=about 95 pounds. I weight 160, so I...

Re: Programming nuts and bolts

Dale,
Thx for your comments. I think you bring up an extremely insightful point, and one which should interest any of us who want to be more knowledgeable about CrossFit programming. To paraphrase...

Dale,
You're quick, or very experienced at CrossFit. Yes, Lynne is the only non-timed Girl and so does not indicate power, but only work.
Linda cannot be a "strength" WOD based only on the fact that...

Re: Programming nuts and bolts

To add more spice to this discussion, here's a quiz. Interestingly, there is only one girl-named or heroe workout which does not measure power, but which measures work. Which is it?

That article is the CFJ#6 reference in my original post.

Re: Programming nuts and bolts

Mike,
Actually, I would say that the WODs already have a greater emphasis on pure strength exercises than intended by the programming philosophy espoused in the CFJ#6 seminal article. One would...

Programming nuts and bolts

I’ve always been intellectually curious about the actual programming of training day protocols in the 3 days cycles. The “What is Fitness” article in CFJ#2 (Oct 2002) was a terrific explanation of an...

Re: Assistance bands

I bought mine locally. Look for one of the industrial supply houses which seem to be everywhere. I found MSC or Grainger. I'm sure I paid much less than if I had gone to a fitness supplier.

Fractional weights

I'm stalling on my SS program in presses, and my Platemates will soon be too large an increment (1 1/4 lb per side or 2 1/2 total). Went to Home Dopey to buy 2 inch washers to make 1/2 lb weights but...

Re: Newbie Press questions

Jamie,
54 yo, 5'-8 1/2", 160 lbs.
If I take your suggestion to an extreme, I think it would be what I mentioned - a mild push press. I also added doing slow negatives on the way down. Just to...

Re: Newbie Press questions

Chris,
That's a logical question. I'm not eating any more since I started working out again. On the other hand, my deadlift has been increasing with every workout:
9/13/2008 - 160X5X2
9/17/2008 -...

I have both books, Starting Strength and Practical Programming. What I don't have is SS 2nd edition. I understand SS 1st edition was mainly for coaches and 2nd edition is more for the lifter. I...

Re: Newbie Pull-up/Chin-up questions

Chris,
Thx for responding.
These are literally my first three workouts with the pull and chin-ups, so I don't have any experience if doing both in the same workout is better than separating them. The...
