Re: Cal Strength Does "Regular" Grace

The reasons are many and varied. PEDs are one. The lifts being taught rather poorly in the U.S. is another. The lacking athlete pool is a third.

It really comes down to money, and specifically...

Re: Cal Strength Does "Regular" Grace

Dependent on the lifter. Jon is super efficient: his best clean is 200 from the floor, best back squat is 227, for 88%. Donny, on the other hand, has cleaned 215 (I think) from the floor, with a...

Re: Cal Strength Does "Regular" Grace

As far as I know, Kendrick is/was not injured. At Pan Ams, he got kind of screwed on his last attempt C&J by a timing error and what seemed to be poor handling on his coaches part. At the American...

Re: Cal Strength Does "Regular" Grace

Qualifying totals and rankings after Nationals attached (W/F safe.)

Kendrick is in first by a mile. Donny is in second. Chad is closer than I thought, but he will have to up his game in a big...

Re: Cal Strength Does "Regular" Grace

Donny is the second closest to the requisite total, following Kendrick. Though Chad Vaughan could theoretically come through, it seems pretty unlikely. That said, Donny will also have to have a...

Re: Cal Strength Does "Regular" Grace

If Donny Shankle totals 388 at Pan Ams, and Kendrick Farris does not improve his standing total, Donny will represent the U.S. in London.

Re: Cal Strength Does "Regular" Grace

Jon didn't punch that guy in the face because that guy trains with Jon regularly, and Jon specifically asked that guy to get in his face and not let him rest.

By the way, that guy has been...

Re: Deadlifts: Legs or back?

I very rarely see my athletes fail a deadlift due to a lack of leg strength - the limiting factor is usually their ability to stabilize the midline through the pull. The deadlift is undoubtedly a...

Re: CrossFit Wichita Falls Programming

I don't even know what to say to this, Justin. Really, I don't.

I'm going to try to make sure I'm getting this straight.

Are you, or are you not saying, in effect:

Re: Major Study

Luke,

Your best bet is probably to get in touch with someone at CrossFit HQ. Not sure who exactly...maybe one of the administrators/moderators can point you in the right direction.

Good luck!

Dammit Blair, now you've got me wondering if I can do one, which means I'm going to have to drive to Marin. Thanks.

So what you're saying is...if you have experience in things that you do in CrossFit, you will be better at the things you do in CrossFit? Oh. Well, since you put it that way...

Andrew,

Your post is utter silliness at best, and dangerously misleading to new CrossFitters at worst. It is for their sake that I take the time to deconstruct this.

Re: How can I get this out of my head.

Omar,

3 rounds
5 handstand pushups
10 pullups
L-Hold (not max...
