Re: Crossfit VOcAbuLAry

Hey Jacob,

Before you get burned with a bunch of "Check the FAQs" and "do a search!!" rants, let me say welcome to the forums.

If you look on the left side of the main page you will see FAQ, click on that and scroll through and that should answer 90% of your questions. It has explanations of pretty much everything in there.

Good Luck and enjoy.

...and accept the fact that no matter how many acronyms and abbreviations and names you learn, there will always be "another new one"! It's all part of the game called CrossFit.

Re: Crossfit VOcAbuLAry

No offence intended towards yourself but I will take this as a chance to suggest something to the moderators. Would the creation of a sticky (sp??) be such a bad idea which answers all these questions such as what is an eva? and information regarding starting strength and the zone diet.

Just my thoughts, I am not trying to say that I am sick of people asking these questions, quite the opposite I am happy that people are continually drawn here.

Re: Crossfit VOcAbuLAry

We do have links, in bright yellow, directly at the top of every single page in the forum, to the CrossFit FAQ and the Site Rules.

My experience has been that you can write it down for them. You can point them to it, and sometimes, you can even read it to them.

You can't understand it for them, however.
