Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

"We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs."

Steven, you're so deep in the Kool-Aid that we can't even see you any more.

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

I haven't logged in for years now, but I just wanted to tell you that you're a bell-end.

Re: Did Rippetoe get CrossFit right?

I think it's like sitting in a plane all day, pushing different buttons that you know are all somehow related to this plane flying, and hoping that it gets you off the ground.

I think there's a goal...

Re: Did Rippetoe get CrossFit right?

Re: Did Rippetoe get CrossFit right?

I really don't see the point to this thread. If you're hoping to get people to look at CrossFit as training instead of exercise, perhaps the CrossFit forum is not the best place to start. There may...

Re: Gassing Out!

It happens when you spend your time focusing on strength instead. It's hardly surprising that if you favour training for specific adaptations, that other adaptations would suffer somewhat. Especially...

Re: Who has experimented with doing this?

This is a fair enough point, actually- in fact, I've done a fair few classes that have been technique work and some light drills only. Certainly nothing that would inhibit me from getting a good bit...

You have terrible technique. That is the issue.

Re: Help, just want to look better and be fitter

When you want to gain weight, if you normally struggle with it, just eat. It actually is that simple.

And, none of the fighters I know can rely on fighting for a living. Fighting for a living is a...

Re: Help, just want to look better and be fitter

As I said, there are a great number of athletes who will disagree with this. Even guys like Lyle McDonald will say that often athletes will train long and hard enough that they maintain a good/lean...

Wouldn't do strength work directly after BJJ. Strength work should be done when fresh.

Re: best thing for fat burn

3000kcal of healthy food is still 3000kcal.

It doesn't matter if you just eat food from better sources if you don't also decrease your actual caloric intake.

Re: Fair male vs female fight?

I dunno, I think Cyborg vs JDS would be a pretty fair fight. She is one scary lady.

Might be a little off-topic, but as I recall I believe that in the past Cyborg claimed to not be able to get her...

Re: Help, just want to look better and be fitter

I do, pretty consistently. So do pretty much all the fighters I know, really.

Of course, that depends on how bad you're talking when you say bad.

Re: Elevation training masks

They don't. It doesn't stimulate the same adaptations that high-altitude training does.

Re: Pokemon Origins

There's a scene where a Squirtle is biting at the throat of a screaming and flailing Charmander.

I haven't got around to watching the whole thing yet, but I will when I have time.

Re: Reasons why Crossfit is good training for MMA

I took my first fight with less than a year of Muay Thai training. I was training at a university club at the time. We had only about 3 or 4 days a week that I could get in and train, and usually...

Re: Reasons why Crossfit is good training for MMA

Keeping a varied stimulus is important in preventing CNS fatigue. In addition to this, if you are continually focusing on intensity during pads, it becomes easy to be sloppy. During sports-specific...

Re: Reasons why Crossfit is good training for MMA

Terrible argument, with a lack of understanding of energy system development.

Having said that, what David said. There are better ways to train for a sport with specific demands and time domains...

My advice is to re-think your decision.
