Downtown Pittsburgh pull-ups

Any good publicly accessible bars in parks/playgrounds right downtown - near the convention center, Point State Park, etc.?

Re: Hills for sprinting in Alexandria, VA

There are many options in the Jefferson Park/North Ridge/Beverley Hills area. Basically anything off the west side of Russell Rd. from Braddock Rd. to Beverly Dr. Mansion Rd. or Beverly are both...

Re: Vacation equipment (what would you take)

If I'm driving somewhere I usually bring a pair of medium weight dumbbells and a cheap pullup/pushup strap arrangement I bought from Coach Rut, then pick and print out a few WODs that will work with...

Re: Men's Health rips off fight gone bad

Circuit training isn't even new to Men's Health. They printed circuit training workouts regularly back in the mid-'90s.

Re: Bomb Suit Mile

Good luck!

For those of us not in your line of work -- how much do the suits weigh?

Re: Pendlay barbell lube

Thanks for the link, Jose. I'd read that one but missed Glenn's phone # at the end. I called him -- he said the bushing is the seal for the oil, and since it was just a trickle everything should be...

Pendlay barbell lube

I stored a Pendlay bar standing on end for a day or two and found a little oil leaking out of the bushing of the uppermost end. Is this something to worry about? And since I've had the bar a little...

Re: Dog suddenly afraid of gym noises

So, I started taking them in there when I work out. No trouble getting them in. I let them sniff around for stray kibble while I did my ROM warmup.

Then I had them sit and stay while I started on...

Re: Dog suddenly afraid of gym noises

Thanks, all, for the tips, and I'll check out that link.

Just to clarify, the dogs don't fear the garage itself. That's where we store their food, so they are only too happy to come in there. ...

Dog suddenly afraid of gym noises

My wife and I and our Labrador retrievers moved into our house a year ago. One of the first things I did was to build a lifting platform in the garage and I've worked out in there 3-4 days a week...

Re: Any tips on running classes with limited equipment?

Team or partner workouts, or FGB-style time intervals for max reps, all work well. You can also combine the concepts. For example, at CrossFit DC recently we did this:

With a partner and an...

Re: Migraines - anyone get them?

For a couple years I would get ocular migraines about half an hour after a WOD, especially if there were box jumps. Dumbbell clean box jumps were a surefire trigger.

My eye doctor thought it might...

Re: Sinus Surgery - Recovery

I know I had dissolving sutures, but don't remember any problem like that. My doctor prescribed Nasonex for a number of months, maybe to prevent that.

Really, I had no problems at all after the...

Re: Sinus Surgery - Recovery

A fine analogy based on my experience at age 10-11 when I had my first round of sinus work. Just awful, even with morphine.

Re: Warm up

If I'm feeling strong, I do the CFWU for three rounds at a reduced level of reps (limited by my ring dips, but keep everything the same # to keep it simple).

If I'm feeling creaky, I do all or part...

Re: Sinus Surgery - Recovery

I had a few of those (fortunately not constant) -- but not any more.

They were always at the worst possible time, like the day before a major holiday. I once called my HMO to change my primary care...

Re: Sinus Surgery - Recovery

The surgery I had worked very well for me. I sleep better and have fewer colds.

The recovery wasn't even so bad. I walked out of the hospital an hour after surgery and think I only missed 2-3...

Re: Sinus Surgery - Recovery

Kristen,

I had sinus surgery (repaired a deviated septum and had a turbinate reduction to open the airways) in 2006, after two years of CF. My doctor's instructions were to do no strength training,...

Re: Pullup grip - Pronated vs Supinated

On a maximum set, I can do 1-2 more reps with an underhand grip.

In high rep workouts, I switch it up and try to be a little systematic about it. I go overhand for the first set. For the second...
