Re: Pain in 1 hip but not the other

Re: Sharknado

There were a total of 12 guys there (3 were from my friend's box here in Tokyo), two of whom are regular strongman/highland games competitors. They took the top two spots pretty handily. A couple of...

Re: Sharknado

Hey all, it's been awhile! How's everyone doing? What did I miss?

Highland Games yesterday. Very thankful that my back felt well enough to participate. Had a blast! Tossing a caber is no joke!

Re: Sharknado

Went out on a date with my wife and found an amazing shabu shabu restaurant. Google it, I think people will appreciate it ;) So much meat! And plenty of carbs too ;)

Re: Sharknado

Back was feeling so much better, so I decided to gently test things out by doing extremely careful 1RMs. Feel pretty good about things considering I've been out for a few weeks.

Re: Sharknado

Those would be legit numbers for 175! Looking forward to you hitting it!

In other news, my back is finally feeling normalish again. Two trips to the chiro and LOTS of MWOD have paid off. I'm...

Re: Sharknado

Cody - those numbers are doable. Don't let those words get you down.

In all honesty, it will be a journey. Getting to that 225# press will take time, and might be one of the slower elements of that...

Re: So who is "literally stealing money from Crossfitters" according to Juggernaut?

Just did a quick search after seeing your post, and I see a picture of SS 3rd edition. Pretty intense stuff, and he makes good points.

Re: Structuring a Warm Up

The question comes to whether you want to prioritize your skill acquisition over your actual training. Your warm up doesn't seem so much like a warm up as it does flat out skill training. If you...

Getting antsy due to the low back issues. What I wouldn't do for a week of kstar's attention on my form and issues. I hate training in a place where I'm the only one that could coach me, since...

Going to hit the gym soon to test out the back on DLs. Praying it goes well!

Re: Sharknado

You beat me to it!

Cody - one, it's easier to just add the weight to your 1 rep maxes that you started with, and two, I feel it slows things down and prevents over reaching. If you had an amazing...

Re: Isolation, when is it necessary?

Isolation exercises have their place. The thing is to know why you're doing something. Wanting to build traps for size and strength is legit. I do neck harness work in order to strengthen a neck that...

Re: Westside doesn't work for raw, huh?

Even if I were never to compete in PL (Raw or otherwise), WL, or the CFG, if I ever have the chance to go to Westside and learn and be coached I would go in a heart beat. I think...
