Re: Sub. for running?

Yeah, I second the c2 rower if you have access to one. If the WOD calls for a 400m run then you might sub a 500m row for example. But you could also try a stationary bicycle at the gym or even...

Re: SS Question

I felt the same way for the first week, but I felt very tired after the end of week 3 and had to up my calories. I guess I just began at too low of a weight.

Re: My Garage Gym pics (WFS)

Great set up! If you are looking for what to buy next, I'd get the bumper plates. I had metal plates, but now am looking to sell them since I got my bumpers. I have a C2 as well, and I agree that...

Re: Small CFers and scaling loads

You could also use the approach of scaling the weights of the met con WODs to a level that allows you to meet what would be considered a good time if done as prescribed. For example, if one could...

Re: Newbie to Self Training and CF

Welcome aboard!

I suggest checking out the scaled versions of the WOD at the brandx website. You can find a link to it under the "Start Here" link in the left column of the main page.

Re: When do I leave SS/PP and return to CF?

Have you moved from squating 3 times a week to squating 2x a week with front squats in between? In my copy of practical programming the 'advanced novice' program is described on page 162-163 and...

Re: Concept 2 Rower D vs E?

One more vote for the D. I own the E and have rowed on the D. I'd say spending the extra money for the E is only worth it if you need/want the wireless capability and the extra few inches of height...

Re: Warm Up???

Robert, if you can't do very many pull ups yet, then yes, body rows, jumping pullups, or band assisted pull ups would be good to finish out your reps during the warm up. For the dips, you could use...

Re: Thinking of Starting SS (No WOD's) on Monday

Hi Andy, just a few thoughts:

--having a spotter for the bench press is a good idea. You could substitute weighted dips if you didn't have a spotter-though that wouldn't be the official SS...

Re: Newbie question for anyone with the patience :)

Re: atrial fibrilation

See a new cardiologist and get the monitor. You could keep the monitor for quite a while (months) and just carry it around with you in a backpack till you had symptoms. Then you'd use the monitor...
