Re: Kilo bars rx?

We would just use a 10kg training bar with 10kg plates to be 30kg. 66lbs, just a touch over.

Re: Has the Game Changed?

Re: Crossfit on Biggest losers

NBC is pretty stringent about what brands show. It is a matter of paid placement. Rogue likely sponsored the show. CrossFit hasn't. There ya go, no brand mention.

Re: Handstand Push Ups-Kipping yay or nay?

If you want to actually have good control in your handstand, then strict. It really depends on the rep count in the WOD as Blair said. If there's a workout with 70+ HSPU in them, then kip......

Re: Kipping technique

I discourage the secondary opening at the top of the kip. It can help an individual complete a pull up that they would have otherwise not completed, but it mutes the kip in the long run, and just...

Re: Handstands without natural athleticism?

I have countless clients with little to no athletic background that can do decent free standing handstands. It does take a lot of work, but there's nothing that is unattainable about it.

Re: Bmi

I wrote a post on specifically this. BMI is a problem in fit populations. Is an easy number to look at in large populations, but has serious problems.
