Also avoid assisting people in pullups (ie. jumping or helping them up) when you take out the concentric, and leave in the eccentric, your asking for rhabdo. And you don't want to mitigate it, you...

Re: Weight Watchers and CrossFit

Jason, Weight Watchers is calorie control not optimum nutrition. I usually describe a 5 step process:

Re: Why wasn't I informed of this glorious program earlier?

Patrick, I strongly, strongly, disagree with your statement. As a matter of fact, that statement is wrong and potentially dangerous. I have seen a very out of shape person go into rhabdo from doing...

I find it better to set compliance goals rather than sheer numbers goals. "Eat 5 Zone compliant meals everyday" is better than "Get to 5% bodyfat". "Complete the WOD 6 times a week"; "Complete 2...
