Re: Bryan Kelly / Anthos Hire Wall-street PR Firm

Who knows. I can't tell/remember which Russell is first in line commenting on Facebook, in Journal comments and here. Maybe it's both of you?

Re: Bryan Kelly / Anthos Hire Wall-street PR Firm

Wall Street PR firm. Pfft! CrossFit has Russell! I'm curious though, is being HQ's voice on the Internet a full-time job?

Re: Dropping the deadlift?

I have to admit I've never tried that. :yikes:

Re: Dropping the deadlift?

Training is training, you can do what you want. Some people may not want to do that half of the work for whatever reason. You also see weightlifters dump their last rep of a set of back squats for no...

Re: Completely Lost.. Rowing?

Generally speaking 30spm is a typical 2000m stroke rate. For 500m, you should probably aim to be around 40spm or higher. But even though a 500m erg is always a bit of a thrash (where you die around...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Thanks for offering some answers, and I'm not being sarcastic. Craig Massey offered a different possibility. If my livelihood was in jeopardy, I would expect something more definitive from the people...

Ok, I'll try again.

HOW CAN A NON-MANAGING EQUITY PARTNER CHANGE THE WAY CROSSFIT INC. OPERATES?

I have a very limited imagination. Tell me how someone who doesn't have the power to manage a...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Re: Crossfit as an Olympic Sport

You're being ridiculous. Those volunteers help spectators find the restrooms. They don't judge or referee the actual events.

If you're wondering what you should or should not do, I'll let the Hodge twins answer on behalf of people on the Internet. I'm sure you'll find their approach reassuring.

But as much as the very...

Not a fan of the Hero workouts myself, but at least (I hope) the family and friends of the deceased came up with the idea or are party to the decision, and (again I hope) the person in question did...

Re: Completely Lost.. Rowing?

Yep, sorry, that's not humanly possible. ;)

The stroke rate is high for a 500m, but not unheard of. I noticed you set it up as 1x500m/1'r. The standard way would be to choose "Single distance",...

Re: Belt placement?

Might those people be wearing their belt low in the front and a bit higher in the back? That's what I end up doing on most pulling lifts.

What matters is that it's not so uncomfortable that you...

Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

By that standard the Home Depot Centre should have been hit by a hailstorm or two after Fatty McPreachy asked God to bless GNC and Reebok.

Re: EU affiliates against CROSSGYM

I see. So de/un-affiliated and copycat gyms could theoretically field individual athletes for the Games but not teams.

Re: EU affiliates against CROSSGYM

Basically agree with everything else you said, but this isn't exactly true.

CrossGym have their own affiliation and certification programme in place/in the works. They're certainly not trying to...

Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

Exactly, which is why there doesn't need to be any more culling at the last stage. By events, I meant workouts.
