Re: 11.4 Any guesses?

:yeahthat:

Limiting the time for warm-ups before a max attempt would both increase power output of the athlete during the workout and raise awareness of muscle, tendon and ligament tears.

Re: Crossfit Games 11.2 Marks

I think that was the genius of the triple standard: When a snatch is really just the competitors choice of (i) ground, (ii) mid-shin, or (iii) below the knee to overhead, a competitor is bound to...

Re: Crossfit Games 11.2 Marks

Re: Do you teach static or kipping pushups? Why?

I think that's what keeps Crossfit so interesting -- sometimes the workouts seem like some kind of dare or just an elaborate joke where we're the punchline. Then you PR a workout you haven't done in...

Re: Do you teach static or kipping pushups? Why?

As Coach said about the kipping pull-up: "Avoiding the kipping pull-up does for arboreal locomotion (swinging through the trees) what avoiding the squat does for bipedal locomotion (walking/running)...

Re: Showers

This. Just because you are charging someone $150/month for a membership doesn't mean you have to provide them with a shower.

Re: Games Location.

That would be awesome. And we could keep the exact location secret until 24 hours before, that way the first event would be just getting there. Unknown and unknowable.

Re: Combining CrossFit with P90X, and Insanity

That's probably OK. As long as you paid the fee, I don't think there is any requirement by HQ to actually send in any videos. Good luck.

Re: Combining CrossFit with P90X, and Insanity

P90X = Man Aerobics
Crossfit = Elite Fitness

Can't take credit for that one (came from here: www.outlawcrossfit.com), but I definitely agree with the sentiment.

I would think Orlando and Lipson are close, no? And what about Games winners like Holmberg and Miko?

Re: 2011 Games site is live
