Re: Lock-Jaw - Ridiculous Labeling?

How are those redundant? Holding it vertical means the exact same thing as the other sentence. When you do triceps extensions, you are holding the bar vertically. When you do a jerk, you are holding...

Re: Best overall bar for CrossFit?

Regarding the knurl, keep in mind that if you prefer to low bar squat, center knurling helps keep the bar in place. Personally, I like center knurl but I always wear a shirt if I'm squatting or doing...

Ankles swelling after working on mobility

I've been trying to work on my ankle mobility to tune up my squat but this exercise is concerning me a little bit:

Re: Burpee Challenges

I personally don't get the point of something like this. A lot of people hate on CrossFit for reasons I don't agree with, but occasionally CFers do come up with stupid ideas and in my opinion, this...

Re: CrossFit WOD Shorts

Re: Help needed! May 2013 Nutrition and Supplement Survey - <5min - $50 Gift Card Dra

Just wanted to point out that number 7 requires a box to be checked; however, many folks on this board probably don't shop at any of those retailers (Myself included). You may want to add an "Other"...

Re: Is Crossfit for me?

I don't think standard crossfit programming is going to be your best option. However, you need to choose a goal and stick to it because you just listed about 3 things that are going to be difficult...

Re: Mid-Workout Nutrition

Is potassium what makes it better for hydration? I never really believed that it was actually better than water but anecdotal evidence has shown otherwise.

Re: Mid-Workout Nutrition

That is correct. So, would it be better to just continue with a PWO shake instead? (I'll still probably start drinking coconut water instead of water mid-workout. I couldn't believe the difference it...

Re: Paul's Hybrid Strength LP Log

Well, I changed my plans and started going to CrossFit again. Initially, it was because I figured I could lean out just as easily CFing instead of bodybuilding, but it's far more enjoyable so I'm...

Re: What happened to my strength?

I certainly do Ross. When I'm on a linear strength progression, I generally go hard until I hit a wall and have to reset. Then, for whatever reason, I have difficulty working back up to the same...

Mid-Workout Nutrition

My normal nutrition routine pre, mid, and post-workout is as follows. If I'm working out in the evening, I generally eat 2 hours or so before I work out so there's nothing solid left in my stomach...

Re: Something to mix with Nitrean+

I tried mixing my vanilla nitrean in coconut water today because I had already taken my results in the morning. I'm not a big fan of coconut water but it tasted good enough. It definitely quenched my...

Re: What's the minimum time a sports skill needs to be performed?

That list is way too long in my opinion. If you're already good at something, maintaining your skills is not very difficult. However, trying to learn 15 different things simultaneously is going to...

Re: Progenex worth the price?

I actually like the vanilla nitrean mixed with blue raspberry results. I forget which thread it was but there were a few combinations people posted that they liked.

Re: Progenex worth the price?

The only BSN product I've used is NOXplode. It was the second pre-workout I tried and I hated it. A friend of mine really likes Syntha-6 but I haven't personally tried it.

Re: Progenex worth the price?

Talk about a negative nancy. My protein comes out to about $1.75 per serving. If I mix it with 2 cups of milk and some oats, I have a solid meal with fairly balanced macros for about $2.50. That's...

Re: Starting a Garage Gym - Bar and Plate Suggestions

I wouldn't recommend an Eleiko bar to start off with. Unless he's lifting some serious weight, there's no need to spend $700+ on a bar. A rogue bar costs less than half that and it will surely last...

I always warmed up with cleans before deadlifting but I generally kept them light. I'm not sure if that would be the best time to do them at max effort. Hopefully someone else has more experience...
