Re: Denied CrossFit Affiliation due to trademark infringement.

That's not what was said. Crossfit met cons ARE a form of circuit training. While I would say that they are a better form of circuit training than the local globo gym's it needs to be acknowledged...

Re: Anthos vs. CrossFit update

In reading the shortened version of the issue of crossfit vs. Anthos/ex-wife I do have to throw the BS flag on the claim by Glassman that everything that went into crossfit was his idea. Come on,...

Re: Knee pain when squatting

Wouldn't the report from the MRI that indicated a radial tear at the junction of the anterior horn and body of the lateral meniscus indicate a torn meniscus as the source of the pain? Wouldn't a...

Re: Rogue Dog Sled vs. Prowler

I just bought a plastic wheelbarrow bucket and throw weight in there. It cost me all of $15 and if I get real motivated I could even screw 1x1s to the bottom as skids. Much cheaper than either of...

Re: lyle mcdonald hates crossfit

This article reminds me of something that a politician would say or write, a lot of words but never really answering the question or saying anything concrete.

This says nothing about HOW the...

Re: Homemade push sled

Wow, so ridiculously simple. I think too many people, myself included, think bigger and more complex when it comes to designing their own stuff. Nice job

Re: Kettlebells....

I have one from K2fitness.net that I have no complaints about. As can be seen it really comes down to personal preference but really it is what it is...A ball of metal with a handle.

Re: Possibly the worst thing I have seen so far!!

I agree with you about his claim that the only way to get the manual is from the L1 cert is garbage. Which scientific research are you speaking of? On the IP claim I agree that Crossfit is a great...

Re: Possibly the worst thing I have seen so far!!

I guess I don't see the problem with it, he paid for the Lvl 1 cert and the manual is his to do with as he pleases. Is it any different if he were selling a used Pavel book or back issues of MILO? ...

Re: Lower back pain, cronic

Maybe go see a doctor versed in athletic/sports medicine? Until you get it diagnosed all you know is that your back hurts but you have no idea why it could be a vast range of issues or combination of...

Re: Why was the Open Source Thread Closed?

I second what Stu said. Only by questioning can real progress be made. Obviously Glassman's questioning of the status quo of fitness created what became Crossfit. No one involved in this board or...

Re: Defranco puts the cabosh on crossfit for athletes!

I think it is just a matter of general training as opposed to training FOR something. Does not seem any different of a mind set than Crossfit Football. Now that football training camps have started...

Re: CrossFit - Reekbok Apparel...

You're right about supporting Reebok more than Crossfit. Reebok has to pay for the mass media marketing, paying athlete endorsers such as Peyton Manning and Sidney Crosby to wear their stuff and be...

Re: Non-CrossFit Gym Doing Crossfit workouts

Is claiming you "do" Crossfit the same as stating that your methodology is derived from Crossfit? You stated both in your initial post and I see the two as very different. Legally does anyone know...

I think so. I made an awkward save while dropping down and noticed some soreness when I bring my left leg up. Not too bad but dont want to repeat it.
