Re: Some new CFPC workouts

Another one I have added to our repetoire. I did it a couple of days ago at 75% intensity with the Games coming up and it was still pretty tough - going full bore will defintelyt hurt. My wife did it...

Re: How many follow the WOD verbatim?

I, for one, tend to program the majority of my WOD's. Due to my work and family schedule, this works out better for me. Additionally, I tend to integrate more strength movements into MetCon workouts...

Re: what happened to the pt crossfit program?

Piggybacking on Steven's recommendation, check out the US Navy SEALS CF affiliate site. Go to "California" in the affiliate blog and scroll down to "Encinitas". They have some HELLACIOUS workouts of...

Re: Less variety in CF WOD?

Someone else at work brought this same point up the other day. I told them to check their e-mail the next day and never be bored again.

So, for everyone else that may like some added variety and...

Re: Do you subtract g's of fiber from total carbohydrate?

Yes, subtract the fiber for a "total" number of ingested carbs.

As for cheese, I would check you labels on that one and see what the numbers are that way. I am sure 1 oz. is pretty close across the...

Re: How long have the CF gods done CF?

If memory serves me correctly, Eva T. was with Coach at a SC Globo-gym prior to the CF days when he took her under his wing in the late 90's. Eva was looking to spice up her training routine for...

Re: Fran Best Time Ever?

Max,

That was crazy! Nice work, you are definitely capable of cutting more time off of that. The fall and short rests in the last round cost you, so I know if you went straight through, you'd kill...
