Re: Heavyweights...

That's exactly what I was thinking, strongman comps are the heavy weight division of CF. Or CF is the light weight division of strongman, depending on how you look at it.

Re: Can't decide on a bar...

Is there any kind conversion chart for knowing how much weight a bar can hold according to its tensile strength? I'm on a tight budget so looking for the lowest tensile strength that'll hold up to...

Re: Rogue Ohio Power Bar Review!

So the knurling would be too aggressive for high rep snatches or cleans?

Re: Pendlay HD bushing bar review!

If you ever do want to sell it, just let me know. I'm driving distance and in the Market for a good bar

Re: Have we all seen this yet?

Valenzuela has tweeted about the NPGL in the last couple of days and was on Barbell Shrugged this past week talking about the league. I don't think she's jumped ship.

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I recently rewatched the rope climb event and to me the no rep cost her a full round. She took time to regathering herself before re-attempting and it seems like it was about the amount of time to...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Did anyone else hear Briggs on the Wodcast podcast? I don't know if she was joking but she said something about wishing there was a winner take all competition right before the Games that included...

Re: CrossFit Team Competition

There are plenty of massive CF gyms that could host or just have it at the Ranch. They'd have to make money off it somehow, maybe PPV or some kind of deal with ESPN3. I said a couple years ago I'd...

Re: Regional Competitor - "CF is not a Sport"

For someone a bit more tech savy than me, Budding (or someone affiliated with the NPFL) said they're researching ways to use technology to determine proper movement standards. Something like sensors...

Re: CrossFit Team Competition

Dang, online submissions takes a lot of the fun out of it. I'd much rather see a live throwdown where Froning can look over at Khalipa and we as the spectators can watch a true race.

Better than...

Re: My idea for the 2014 CrossFit Games

The final event being a long endurance type event would suck. Gotta have something that fits in the stadium and is crowd pleasing

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Spealer is a lot like Stacie Tovar to me, they've both been around the top of the sport so long that a lot of people root for them for whatever reason. That doesn't equal overrated to me. I don't...

Re: Regional Competitor - "CF is not a Sport"

Just someone bringing up the PGA made me think about how they're structured and how cool it would be if CF structured their season like the PGA. Smaller tournaments/comps throughout the year, all...

Re: Regional Competitor - "CF is not a Sport"

One thing that I thought about concerning judges, is how many people are on the Level 1 staff? I'd think they would ultimately make the best judges. That's a pretty big stable of paid, experienced...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Someone remind me, was there a big uproar when Kristen Clever got an invite last year after not qualifying? I'm surprised by the number of people who are saying Briggs doesn't deserve an invite.

Regional Competitor - "CF is not a Sport"

http://www.havokjournal.com/fitness/2014/5/16/crossfit-is-not-a-sport (WFS)

Pretty interesting read. I'm not close enough to the events to know if some of his complaints are valid or not but his...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Man it's rough watching deadlifts in the 50's event, especially the second time through. Looks like a lot of the ladies are just doing straight leg deads

Re: Have we all seen this yet?

I agree, but any network regardless of size would be competing against football if they televise during the fall. I'd be shocked if a network made that choice instead of sticking to the summer where...

Re: Have we all seen this yet?

If you're a network though, why would you want to anything from August to January? That's head to head with the monster than is college and pro football. If it's up to a network it'll be during the...

Re: Minimalist Squat Rig...

If you want to go cheap, keep an eye on Craigslist. I bought a squat rack, bar, over 400lbs of iron plates and a couple sets of dumbells for $600. It's not ideal for CF obviously but it fit my budget...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Some of the setups at the Central North seemed pretty dangerous too. During the final event the lanes were too narrow or too close together or both. Athletes were failing on the OHS and the bars were...

They posted all of the races from this past combine and other than the team aspect, it looks exactly like any CF comp or regional WOD. There will be some wrinkles to keep things interesting but I...

Re: Wendler's 5/3/1 and cutting

This is a bit OT for the thread but it relates to 5-3-1 and I didn't want to start another thread. I was going through my accessory lower body lifts and while doing leg press I felt a sharp pain in...
