Re: home gym/ half cage

This. If you are going to get bumper plates, then you simply need a squat stand (two uprights with something to put the bar on). If not, get something with spotter arms. From there just do the big...

Re: what is your deadlift and power clean?

(squat) clean: 245 lbs
Deadlift: 365 lbs

I rarely do power cleans, so this is the better comparison I can give.

Re: Additional (heavy) lifts rep scheme

By glancing at the site, the novice program at CrossFit Football has you squatting twice, benching, pressing, cleaning, deadlifting, and doing pull-ups.



Good advice. I'm using the term heavy more...

Re: Additional (heavy) lifts rep scheme

That part I know (I've read the boards for a long time). What I don't know is at what point would more work be detrimental. CrossFit Football has a workout scheme that involves:

Re: Additional (heavy) lifts rep scheme

It is simply an assumption. At that rate, I'll likely get in one upper body lift and one lower body lift a week. In the past I've felt like I've done much better when I do each at least twice a...

Additional (heavy) lifts rep scheme

After being a long time home CrossFitter/lifter with varying degrees of success, I have started going to a box. I've loved it so far, and I do feel much healthier all over, even compared to my...

Re: Ring mounting. Will this work?

Are the 2x2's considered flanges in this context? I'm only familiar with the term when it comes to pipes.

If so, are they an issue since the 2x4 is technically being supported by the...

My basement has what looks like wooden I beams supporting the first floor above. I think it is composed of a pair of 2x2's for the ends with 1/2" to 3/4" plywood or particle board inbetween. I...

Re: Starting Strength

Starting Strength (SS) gets exhausting. Those 3x5 sets across really wear you out. Plus it calls for 3 major lifts each session with a squat, press, and pull. That is 9 big lifts a week. I'd say...

Re: Am I overthinking this?

A few years ago Dicks Sporting Goods was selling a 300 lbs weight set that included a bar, and iron 45, 35, 25, 10, 5, and 2.5. All iron, and the bar is nothing great. But it worked fine. I did...

Re: How does ones weight affect rowing?

When you are doing an exercise, you are either moving yourself, an object, or a combination of the two. The more an exercise is moving an object, the more it tends to benefit heavier people. That's...

Re: Excellent Service Again from Rogue

You aren't, but a lot of people are. After I got a big bonus one year, my treat to myself was a Rogue bar. And I got it with the intention that this is a premium bar (it replaced a Cap barbell from...

Re: Why No Powerlifting at the Games?

How about this? Give the competitors 1 hour total to find 3 maxes:
Ground to waist (Deadlift)
Shoulders to overhead (Jerk)
Ground to overhead in one movement (Snatch)

Those 3 movements are very...

Is this because it is essential, or because of safety reasons? I'm pretty sure that the way powerlifters squat isn't necessarily ideal for other athletes. So why would their deadlift rules...

Re: Olympic Ring Hanging Help
