Re: Struggling with the nutrition side of things

Shoulder injury.. SLAP?

Sigh, I'm almost too scared to post this, but I guess I need some advice before I potentially do any more harm.. I also apologize for the new thread, but it's a bit difficult to get an idea of what...

Re: Micronutrient Deficiency?

That is some serious volume you have going there. From my understanding the volume on The Outlaw Way alone is quite intense- let alone the fact that you're doing it 5 days a week, mixing it in with...

Re: What New Movements Will We See This Year?

I'd love to see some kind of rock climbing at the Games this year; I think it would be very exciting to see the top guys use different strategies and techniques and going at top speed head-to-head!

Re: Paleo with Carb Back-Loading Principals

Re: Paleo with Carb Back-Loading Principals

Re: Crossfit newbie looking for some help, mass and general fitness

If you mean to ask what my training history looks like, I've been weight lifting and crossfitting for about 7 years on and off and done a lot of experimenting along the way.

Re: Combining Bodybuilding and Crossfit

Re: Paleo with Carb Back-Loading Principals

Re: Paleo with Carb Back-Loading Principals

Re: Paleo with Carb Back-Loading Principals
