Re: Heard in the Office Today

I dunno. The thought of various ppl reaching into a dish of mixed nuts... no thanks.

When I worked out of the office, there's one guy that always has m&ms on his desk. Kinda gross, if you ask me. ...

Re: ********

I really wasn't following Chris's point as these 2 things are not mutually exclusive within a box.

But remember some of Coach's finer points. You may not live a longer life, but you'll be more...

Re: Drop-In Etiquette

Couldn't agree with this more, couldn't disagree with the OP more.

I too travel for work and I've been to a dozen affiliates throughout North America. The procedure is always the same:

It's called anecdotal evidence. You choose to put more weight in Jeremy's use of the product than everyone else who wasn't using the product. You pick the effect and you define the...

After this I'll stop, so as not to be the one that gets this thread closed.

Re: request

Jay- I think that you missed my point. I was not comparing the CF community of day 1 to today, I was making a comparison to about a week ago.

The arguement that "bigger = better" is a dubious one...

Re: request

Where as I agree with this sentiment, I disagree with your "method" for achieving this.

Self improvement only comes through self-reflection. A head-in-the-sand approach doesn't fix anything. I...

Re: Fedor vs. Rogers on CBS

That was a seriously good card. The wife and I enjoyed every fight. Brett did better that I expected and could have won that fight when he was gnp'ing Fedor, but Fedor probably isn't human!...

Re: Chimp vs Lesner!

What about, what is the minimal advantange we would have to give Lesner where the marjority would feel that he would likely win.

Some people just don't get it. :D This is the best nonsense thread since the Globo thread. Actually, it may be a toss up between this and the Zombie thread. :eek: :yikes:

Re: The Shogun/Machida debate

That was the same thing I was doing. Everytime that Shogun did anything, Rogan was all over it, but was totally disregarding what Machida did in his commentary. The only difference was that I had...

Re: newbie shock??? need some insight please!

OP-

I think you are ignoring what's in front of you -- both the good advice and the results of not scaling this workout for this individual.

You're putting too much stock on what you think the...

Re: Arms still in pain from Tuesday. Should I be worried?

In my opinion, no. If you couldn't straighten your arms at all, then I might be concerned. (Google "compartment syndrome" - you don't have it, but this is would be worth worrying about). Keep an...

Re: First class - ouch.

The thing about CF is that, done properly, does not require you to go get in shape first. The point of CF is to get you in shape.
