Re: CrossFit Games GM on Garard Suspension

Should we go through all the speculation on drug use again? If someone's build looks a certain way, they must be using PEDs? There are ways to use and not get caught? No one can perform and...

Re: diy wooden squat rack with pull up bar

Hmm. I just read Gilles description a little closer. For adjustable height J-cup, the idea of setting the J-cup into the post wouldn't work.

How about one of these at...

Re: diy wooden squat rack with pull up bar

This thread is old enough that I don't know if Gilles will see it, but here is a better way to set a wooden "J-cup."

Re: Starting tiny; does it still work?

I want to echo your experience.

My wife opened a CrossFit gym in 2010 in a small town. The next nearest box was an hour away.

We financed $18,000 for equipment and found a really cheap warehouse...

Re: Medium size home gym how much space?

I've got a home gym in the back of my tandem garage. It's 11.5 x 11.5 with an 11.5 ceiling. Rather than working out in the box, we work out in the cube. :D

Here is a photo of the...

Re: The Importance of Missing Lifts and Bailing out

When I started at Mad City CrossFit, they did teach us how to dump the barbell. We practiced at light weights so the coaches could see that we knew what to do to fail properly. We also practiced...

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Well, it was an entertaining Games season. The spectacle has definitely been polished and dialed in. Presentation and commentary has improved.

Yep. He was not expecting to count more reps. The other video angle shows him giving a little wave with his left hand / clipboard toward the finish line.

It looks like her judge screwed up. She seems a little confused when she drops the bar and runs to the finish line. There was enough confusion in that moment that the moment passed without the...

Re: 2017 Games thread

I rewatched Kara's 2223 event. Here is my analysis:

Does Kara actually do 75 OHS?

She does 60 reps on camera. The head judge may have an uninterrupted view of Kara's OHS count. Our feed is not...

I think it's just one-way for the individuals. They run several heats like a tournament bracket. In each heat the top three athletes advance to the next round. After all heats have run, then next...

Re: 2017 Games thread

You've seen the rig for the obstacle course, yes?

It's tan. I'm guessing this is a choice to reduce surface heat compared to a black rig, when outdoor in the sun. Also, it looks pretty awesome set...

Re: Can I workout on hydrocodone

How clear does your mind feel? Do you have delayed response or impaired judgment?

If so, lifting weights overhead might put you more at risk of injury by dropping a weight.

Be kind to your body. ...

That's too bad. I've had good customer service and products from Again Faster. I am in the US. I wish Canada would get equal service.
