Re: Did Rippetoe get CrossFit right?

This is what Ive learned:

Re: Crossfit and how it relates to Sociology

My suggestion would be something ironic along those lines about how cf has co-opted the criticism that it is a cult and proudly promotes...

Re: Klokov performs workout DT (3 round version)

So are you saying you would rather aim for Fronings insane capacity than Klokovs insane strength and power? I guess I get that, even though I dont share the sentiment.

Re: If You Were to Start All Over Again......

Hate on curls all you want but, as long as they are not in the squat rack, they will keep you from tearing a bicep when your DL gets big.

Re: Crossfitters, where is the coordination?

The cf manifesto or whatever it is called does have a line to the effect of "regularly learn and play new sports". I feel like that was just to cover all the bases, though, because I dont see it put...

Re: Another snatch technique question...

I would post the video so people can help.

Re: The Outlaw Way

Ok ok maybe he isnt exactly a bodybuilder but you have to admit the guy is freaking JACKED. Does not fit the sort of "all-CNS" look that cynics will point to in weightlifting sometimes.
