Re: Scaling Muscle Ups

Generally a pullup, preferably chest to bar, and a ring dip = a muscle up.

If you're gym doesn't have rings, most have the machine where you can do either pullup or dips. It's not ring dips but...

Re: How thorough is the crossfit games drug testing? Surely some athletes are doping

I think they only test the winners of each Masters division.

Re: Identify Mystery Barbell

Did they have anything else useful, mainly bumpers? I've got a half decent bar but only iron weights right now.

Re: Too unfit to exercise

My first question is who administered the test? Sounds like it was someone at your current gym, so I'm guessing it wasn't a doctor. Before I'd totally give up something that you're interested in...

Check out this calculator (http://eattoperform.com/eat-to-perform-calculator/) WFS, it'll tell you how much you should be eating based on your size and activity level. If you're hitting CF hard,...

Re: Ladies with a breast augmentation, help!

I would've thought C2B would have been easier now, perhaps you should go bigger?

Re: Open in 6 months, want to make regionals

Maybe you're right, who knows. Things often get misintrepreted online so I tend to try and assume the best.

Re: Crossfit w/ limited equipment

I do most of my WODs in the fitness center in my office building. There's nothing more than dumb bells, pullup bar and treadmill/elipitical/stationary bike. I obviously can't lift heavy but most...

Holy cow, there's no way I could have done FGB on my first WOD. Awesome job!

Re: First Competition

I participated in my first comp earlier this year (just a gym-wide comp) and there were three WODs plus one floater. I took quite a bit to snack on but I was surprised how little I ate. I drank a ton...

Re: 2014 Games Season Thoughts?

I wish there was a way that CF could maximize the momentum they gain during the Games season instead of just falling off the map. It would have been awesome if there was some way to watch some of the...

Re: Open in 6 months, want to make regionals

While I certainly don't know for sure, I think you're misunderstanding what he was saying. If I can assume what he meant for a second....I think there is a way to place well in the Open but be very...

Re: Wallball

Has anyone used something called a Sandbell? I was looking at equipment packages the other day and I saw it at Fringe Sport. It seems to be pretty versatile, which is nice for someone on a budget...

Re: How thorough is the crossfit games drug testing? Surely some athletes are doping

No need to apologize, we both have strong opinions and there's nothing wrong with that. I will point out though that I never said "yea there are guys using for sure."

My point all along has been...

Re: How thorough is the crossfit games drug testing? Surely some athletes are doping

Man I could not disagree more. I'm not accusing any elite level guys of doping but to say they aren't putting up impressive enough numbers or "look" big doesn't mean a thing. First, they're not...

Re: Open in 6 months, want to make regionals

Also, were there Open WODs that you did well in and others you struggled in or were you pretty even across the board?

Re: What to eat after my late workout

What's the consenus on cottage cheese as a late evening snack? I've heard it's somewhat comparable to casein protein in that it's a slow release deal and would be ideal right before bed? Thoughts?

Re: How thorough is the crossfit games drug testing? Surely some athletes are doping

And I assume that's only for a urine test right? Blood testing is much more expensive?

Re: How thorough is the crossfit games drug testing? Surely some athletes are doping

The people that are doing that though probably aren't getting synthetic or designer stuff though (I'm guessing). The stuff they're getting is what would pop on a **** test. (disclaimer though, just...

Re: How thorough is the crossfit games drug testing? Surely some athletes are doping

There's no doubt that if someone wanted to dope in CF and they had the means to purchase something synthetic, they could get away with anything they want. Drug testing is only at Regionals and the...

Re: Top 10 or so Athletes You'd Like to See at the Games

What other sport would produce the best CFers?

My first guess would be Olympic lifters but I wonder if those are guys have the natural athletic ability to excel as a well rounded athlete or if...
