Re: Pre-workout

I like to take a BCAA drink before working out (I work out fasted). Right now I like the Xtend - Blue Raspberry. No sugar and tastes like Blowpops.

Re: Compression Socks

I have a pair of Hylete socks too. They feel great but could use a bit more padding. Actually my favorite pair looks wise (I have the grey and green).

I also have a pair of these compression socks...

Re: Beyond the Egg: Grab and Go Paleo Breakfast Ideas?

Hard Boiled Eggs, keep a dozen or so in the fridge at all times. Takes less than 15 minutes to make a batch of them.

Re: CF & alcohol??

Funny, I say the same thing with about every season.

Spring is here, nothing like a Beer and a Baseball game on TV.
Summer is here, nothing like some BBQ and Beers by the pool.

Re: OK, I'll say it....I like BEER!

Something wrong about buying Guiness in a bottle, I always find. But if they only have bottles, that's what I'm stuck with.

Pete's Wicked Ale - Summer Brew (do they still make that in the states?)...

Re: rice substitute for asians (or other rice eaters)

Some things you just can't eat w/out rice. For me it's "ma la dofu", spicy tofu dish, and just about any sichuan food.

I basically cut it out of "our" diet, for 99% of the meals, but sometimes you...

Jesse, did you read SS or just doing the program? (I think you are reading PP?).
You can buy chalk (online or at a sporting goods store), bring it with you in a ziplock baggy. It's really cheap....

Re: Nutrition Prior to a Triathlon

Chris, I'd say something in the sub 3 hours range would be more realistic for an OLY tri, depending on the distances. But I suggest being less concerned with the time, and more concerned with the...

Re: 20-day 'cindy' challenge (+1 rnd a day) Oct. 6th

Ted, I'm buying in tonight, before my CFE WOD.

October 8th 3 rounds +
7th 2 rounds +
6th 1 round = 6

My pull-ups are terrible after some break from CF, so this should get me back.

Re: a little help needed with some ideas...

Clay,

From my basketball off-season conditioning I remember lots of plyometric drills, jump roping and sprint intervals. Here are a few I can recall.

No jump rope, improvise with some line in the...

Re: Triathlon Sprint Prep?

Wear contacts, and normal goggles. That's what I do. You'll need to see on the bike and run, right?

If you've been crossfitting for any significant time, you can finish the triathlon. But the swim,...

Re: Pasadena, CA

Weston, the 24 Hour Fitness facilities aren't bad up there. I've done WODs at the new Arcadia one, and was a member of the one by Fuller Seminary a few years back. Not sure if it's still there.

Re: Nutrition for CFE type training

I'm pretty sure they DO prescribe 2 workouts per day, i.e. "CrossFit Main Site WOD then CFE WOD 3 hours later"

Re: CF Cycling Jersey...Its Finally Happening

I'm in for one. Can we just pay the $70 at once, or do we need to pay separate fees?

Re: Good Article for Fellow Triathletes

Thanks Brennan. I noticed when going strictly zone, I just didn't have enough gas in the tank for long rides/runs.
But aside from energy gels, powerbars and sports drinks, I live fairly zone-esk.
