Re: Too much $$$

Back to the OP. I've been a member of plenty of big box gyms, base gyms and deployed...

Re: Advice on Maryland boxes

With no negative connotations WHATSOEVER to the other boxes listed above (I just don't know them), I would very, very highly recommend CF Montgomery County. I've known Tai Randall for a while and he...

Re: Globo posting CrossFit as a class

I've contacted IPtheft a few times. It takes a few days or longer, but they come through. Might take a little longer going international, but I assure you they are on it.

Re: cleaning stall mats

How many square feet/meters of mats are you talking about? There are two in the picture. If it's that many or slightly more then a scrub brush and mop might work best. On the other hand if it's...

Re: Found a vintage York Barbell on craigslist, couple questions.

Agreed. Thread sizing is very specific, you want to get it right.

Re: My Favorite Kettlebell Exercises

I'm a big fan of KBs in general, all of those movements. I'm especially a fan of juggling. Good for timing and hand speed.

Re: Hook Grip?

I, and a lot of people in my gym, typically relax the grip going into the catch to get a little more length on the lower arm and allow for higher elbows. Going into the jerk I'll give the bar a...

Re: The high road is HARD

Well said, Don. Good to hear from you and congrats on the promotion.

That was one of the most singularly offensive and insulting posts I've read here in a long time.

Re: Dead On article by Chris Mason

$25/year is a ridiculously low price for a CFJ subscription considering you also get access to every issue and article back the first one in 2002.

Re: Fake affiliate??

You can always email iptheft@crossfit.com. They're pretty effective at getting to the bottom of things.

Re: A Triple Clap Pushup, and the highlight of my day at the CANEAST Regionals.

I've run into Dave at a couple of certs and competitions, he really is a super nice guy.

Cool behind the back clapping pullup!

Re: Bloody torn hands and bloody barbells at Regionals makes CF look dumb.

Looking forward to it; always good to meet someone from here.

I saw that email a few minutes ago. Thin gloves, nothing sticky. I like the responsiveness, regardless of the philosophy of gloves.

Re: Bloody torn hands and bloody barbells at Regionals makes CF look dumb.

I'm pretty much in the same boat as Sean. It's a fact of competition at the levels we're seeing now. Don't get me wrong, I preach hand care relentlessly at my box. Even well conditioned,...

Re: Variations of the Pushup to build Strength

We mix up pushups a lot in my gym. Some of my favorites involve kettlebells.

- Stand two upright and do pushups with your hands on the handles.
- Or just use one for asymmetry.
- Take one KB,...

Are you getting enough water? That's a common dehydration symptom.

Re: Your Take on Crossfit Football

Re: Jump Rope Substitution
