Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

I get where you're coming from but disagree, for a few reasons.

First, it would mean the games are largely redundant, since it's the same top guys fighting it out.

Second, the current format is...

Re: Energy balance

I'm curious what you mean by "inessential" lean mass?

I do agree that a very obese (in the realm of 50%+ BF) can run a larger defecit safely. They will still lose lean mass, but may not appear to...

Re: Energy balance

Sure, that quote would be appropriate for anyone who is trying to lose/cut weight safely and effectively. Honestly, I would call it common sense.

Anyone who says they can run a 800 calorie/day...

Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

Read the standards: "The marked area will be 36" wide by 24" deep, and the palm of the hand must remain completely within the area (fingers may extend out of the box)."

By that standard, he was...

Re: help w/ barbell diameter - new plates won't fit!

Definately the barbell is crap.

Hell, I bought a cheap 300 lb set of plates + bar, and simultaneously a rogue bar and a 160 lb bumper set. I figured 460 is more than I'll be able to lift in a very...

Re: Adding running post wod?

Thank you for being the voice of reason.:)

"light" for somebody means they have zero or very, very minimal recovery afterward. If you're sore, it wasn't light.

Note that what is light for you may...

Re: Blue sapphire or diamond?

To both questions, the only person who matters is the recipient.

Not an endurance specialist, but a shout-out for endurolytes... they are amazing!

Re: my new DIY power rack

Nice work!

300 easy. Probably double that in reality unless you're going to really slam stuff into it.

Re: Safety Rails on Squats

Initially I made non-adjustable wooden rails but ditched that idea because the level I need for bench is just a bit too low for squats.

My rails are now galvanized pipe. I don't know how they would...

Re: My Quest To Become an Animal - Frankel's Log

Take a close look at your feet. When you're at your sticking point, your heels come off the ground momentarily. Hard to say from the video if it made a difference or not, but I believe by the...

Re: My Quest To Become an Animal - Frankel's Log

Hey, nice work! I guess you win... I have 25 lbs to go on my 2.5xBW DL. Hit a solid 340 last week.

BW press is a huge benchmark. Keep it up!

Re: Open Competition

The $20 is to CFHQ to register for the open. I assume the box is charging their own fee above that.

Re: Open Competition

There's probably a mix. Some free for members, some not. But really, there's no reason they shouldn't.

Would you expect to go to a powerlifting competition, O-lifting competition, 5K, triathalon,...

Re: New Deadlift PR at 525

One more reason to back off the heavy weight and train safely. Risking injury to win a competition is one thing. Doing it for no reason makes no sense.

You're strong. No doubt about it. Stronger...

Re: Blood work came back awful!

Oh, your fasting glucose number in the 80's is also perfect.

The recommendation of <72 is too low, IMO. Some people (including non-diabetics) simply don't normally go that low, it's largely...

Re: Blood work came back awful!

Dude.

You're outside the range on the GOOD side. Your HDL and tri numbers are so good that they're outside what's considered normal. I'm dead serious. You can't have "too high" of an HDL or "too...

Re: Should I reset/deload my DL?

With deadlifts in particular, higher reps (even 5's) just don't seem to work for me. They would leave me sore and I wouldn't make much progress, basically hovering between a max of 295 and 315 for a...
