[QUOTE=Nik Nichols;1009049]Ha, thanks, it seems we are a sheltered group in the logs where the fighting has'nt taken over. Here we support and if need be kick each other to get moving, but all in the name of support and bettering each other.

Seems like the rest of the site is all about being bullys and rude. I still try to post here and there. I can't give up totally.[/QUOTE]
Once upon a time, I was an enthusiastic Paleo Diet newbie all eager to share my enthusiasms on the CrossFit Nutrition forum. And so I did. Among various other horrible, insane and evil statements, I mentioned the following: "A well balanced and nutritious human diet consists of plant sourced and animal sourced foods."

For daring to state such a mainstream and widely accepted nutritional science point of view, I was attacked by the vegans for being anti-plant while at the same time I was attacked by the meat-o-sauruses for being anti-meat. For a brief time I engaged in the brouhaha and gave as good as I got. But then I stepped back and got some perspective. I realized that I was engaged in a religious war with zealot true believers, and that I was massively outnumbered and would never convince anybody to change their diet religion. I was wasting my time and mental energy, so I stopped.

Like many of you, I rarely bother to post outside of my Workout Log. The negative energy frothing in the CrossFit forums is too high to bother. I find it ironic that the corporate weasels from CrossFit HQ see fit to censor out any mentions of fired CrossFit SMEs in the forums, but refuse to enforce their own policies on good behavior in the forums.

Nowadays, while still enthusiastic about Paleo for myself, I am no longer an evangelizing newb about it. I occasionally post answers to Paleo questions that arise on the Nutrition forum, if I have some worthwhile knowledge to share. Otherwise, I let all the rest of it slide.

I still post in the beginner type forums because I try to be supportive. I don't knock the globogyms, single sports enthusiasts, or specialist. I find even people who are exercising and dieting in a manner I disagree with or dislike personnally are trying to do something to combat the obesity epidemic in this nation. I don't have time or energy to evangelize - my job in the military requires me to be negative too much of the time. Unless I see something outright dangerous, I don't say any thing. The atmosphere in those forums aren't worth it to me.

See you nailed it, people get into their ''clicks'' and refuse to see another side. Then it is war and arguements.
I was watching the ''seen in the globo'' thread and it is now a fight on weather curles are good or bad. Reall if you want to curl, then curl. if it helps then great. I have no problem with it. Me i like weighted pullups but would curl if I saw a need for it. But it is a huge fight and I figure it will shut the thread down soon if it gets worse.
The use to moderate better and keep this down and the whole site was more supportave, but it has changed.

Pretty much the same here. I will post a tip or advice but I TRY not to get into debates if I can.
[QUOTE=Scott Jenkins;1009287]Yeah if you was watching me you would of laughed much more, I kept picking the computer up then putting it back down and calming down, in the end had to reply, especially the guy with the big picture of he's back in he's avatar , its a bodybuilding pose or he is very shy.

Back to the important stuff, my goal is going to be to just go fast on Cindy then straight into Grace as breathing will slow as it goes on. You put the gauntlet down now Nik so I got to go all out tonight.[/QUOTE]
Man like I told Luke, the site has become a bunch of bullys and there is always a fight. I like the thread you started and really I have learned from it. The jerks need to just step out. If I do'nt like what some one said, I generally do'nt post and stop looking at the thread. Wish others could too.

Scott, you better get a full grace plus. Some one will hit more then 30 reps, KEEP THAT IN MIND!!
[QUOTE=Matthew Williams;1009291]Great work on WOD #2 Nik. I was going to ask how quickly you did Cindy but Scott beat me to it. We haven't done many air squats in quite a while so I'm hoping I having lost any speed on those. Cindy has never been a strength of mine so if I get 2 minutes on the GTOH I'm just going to have to go hard[/QUOTE]

Just pace it to not break it. If you break you will eat more time. SO go at a good pace and finish strong, the cleans, I screwed it up. I took to much rest on it. But if you go hard on it at forst your breathing will self regulate to a slower breathing pace and you will have more reps.

Oh yeah, somebody has already hit 35 clean & jerks so 45 points, thats the new target, as long as I can get through Cindy quick without totally killing myself it should be good.

Scott, I really see it not being bad. I mean, the condy part is not bad. there are parts that get tough. But I got the 10 rounds in 8:00 min. if you do the same, you can get the 30 plus reps. I just havent repped clean and jerk in a wile and wasnt ready for it. Multipal reps at first go.

On Cindy, set a pace and keep it. Finishing on the squats gives you the chance to get your breathing right befor you go to the cleans. The C&J were not affected by cindy other then breathing. It really wasnt.

Went back a few pages, didnt see many of your workouts, but I did see the references to Mr. Jenkins' thread that caused quite a stir!!!

I am like you guys, dont really enjoy the the rest of the board that much either! There seem to be a ton of experts on multiple topics out there...its just gotten to be too much!

I do liek reading the logs though. And it seems like you are doing some of the WoDs from Scott's gym lately. Hows that going? Looks like you do well with the ones you have done, are you going to do them more frequently?

I am glad to be back - my family looks like we are getting over the sicknesses, so I can resume regular training and regular following of the logs again!

GOAT workout

wallball 10reps
DUs 15reps

DUs brok on forst 3 rounds then got it going. II was going to do 10 rounds but I did'nt have time after the squats. I guess I drug it out a little more then I wanted.

Happy with both workouts.

Nice work on the Cindy/C&J workout Nik. That one looks fun. I'm off to read all of Scott's issues now. It's tough getting caught up on these logs.
