Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Balance out the 1RM? The Open is way skewed in favor of lightweight stuff, no?

Re: Double Unders

I got them simply by practicing. What locked it in for me was watching myself do them in a mirror. Stay relaxed focus on a single spot. People get psyched out by them thinking its a faster movement...

Re: CrossFit affiliate inside a large health club

As Paul mentioned, Lake George Crossfit used to run out of the corner of a globo gym, they've since moved to a separate, much larger facility. The owner's name is Dirk. Good guy.

Re: L1 Coach Needed Cayman Islands

Sure it's not a lot of money. But a) how expensive is it to live in the Cayman Islands? I assume it's pretty cheap and b) for someone who's young and not tied down, it actually sounds like a nice gig

Re: Have we all seen this yet?

I agree with everyone else that out the gate they were way overoptimistic. Booking the NY Rhinos at the mecca that is Madison Square Garden in the heart of NYC? They had to know they were gonna lose...

Re: 1000lbs club CrossFit Total

I saw a local affiliate program the Total today and they stated for the squat the athlete can go low bar or high bar, and for the deadlift the athlete can go regular or sumo. Is the deadlift part...

Re: A good breakfast that doubles as PWO?

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

Just an observation. A couple of guys who seemed to be long time consistent and helpful posters were banned. Bummer they were a couple of good resources around here

Re: BulletProof coffee

Re: Awesome location without heating

For what it's worth, if the affiliate I belong to (Long Island, NY) was unheated this past winter. I would have bailed to one that was. But then again there are a ton of affiliates around my way.

Re: How did your "Murph" go?

First time doing it with a vest (20#). I was a little concerned because my previous PR set last year without the vest wasn't great (about 50 minutes), but I figured since I'm a lot fitter than last...

Re: Sticking Point - Back Squat

Just curious, what's your fear of bailing? I can see it being a concern if you're using metal plates and aren't in a squat cage, but if you're using bumpers in an open space then what makes you think...

Re: Progenex worth it?

It's not a bad product. In fact it's pretty good. Just not worth paying a 25-50% premium on it in my opinion (compared to other similar products). I'll tell you one thing though that Tropical Vanilla...

Re: 14.5 tips and strategies

I did it last night and 21 thrusters off the bat and felt OK after the 21 burpees. But the thrusters in the round of 18 was a wake-up call and it went down hill from there. If you hit a wall and are...
