Re: Grip that slips

The weird thing is, farmer walks are no problem, even super heavy ones (we have what I call the "suitcase bar" with handles and room for bumper plates). Also tried to train my grip just by hanging...

Grip that slips

No matter what I do or how hard I try, my grip constantly slips on the rig pullup bars! I've tried using the Again Faster grips, which make the slip so much worse because of the leather/suede it's...

Re: List your max 1RM deadlift and weight!

Jesse Burdick told me competitive weightlifters only test their 1RM deadlift about 2x a year. From what I understand, this particular lift taxes your system more than any other lift and shouldn't be...

Re: Eat real food without going broke or being chained to the stove: a case study

I am on VERY good terms with my slow cooker now. I usually spend about 30 min on prepping the ingredients, I plug it in, and I forget about it. The stuff that comes out of that appliance after not...

Re: Organic pasture fed milk

Actually, Anthony, I'm a toxicologist and I don't consider myself easily duped by mainstream propaganda and internet articles. My original point was to bring to light the facts that contribute to the...

Re: Organic pasture fed milk

Unpasteurized milk carries many health risks due to pathogen-carrying cows, such as e. coli, salmonella, listeria, etc. Because of this, many countries and some US states make it illegal to purchase...

Re: Am I Expecting Too Much?

Wait. Seriously?

I'd LOVE to think all Crossfitters (myself included) are totally above all that body image nonsense, but fact-of-the-matter is that I'm not killing myself in WODS every day just...

Re: Again Faster - Inov-8 Bare-X 180's

I had this issue with the 230s in a size 7.5 (women's). There was a plastic part from the logo on the side that dug into my foot and would have made it near impossible to run in. Just for fun, I...

Re: Women's weight?!

I don't know whether to be insulted or deflated at some of these comments and standards. After almost 2 solid years of consistently crossfitting 4-5 days a week, my 1RM is 250lbs (140lb female,...

Re: Makeshift/DIY 1.25# plates ideas?

Oh wow, they weigh that much? At my Oly lifting class, if we can't push past a PR we've been working on, we add an extra clip on each side of the bar as well as items like rubber bands, leaves, dead...

Re: Fruits

Fruit juices are liquid sugars. No juice if you're trying cut body fat.

Fruits in general are full of sugar, so if you're trying to lose weight I'd either cut them completely, or severely limit...

Re: Is paleo the only way

As I understand it, there are two main negative issues with grains: the antinutrients that cause microtears in the intestines, and the insulin release that occurs after ingestion. I'm one of those...

Re: TOTALLY Fatigued

Pushing yourself to the point of having nothing left in the tank (i.e. out of breath, exhausted, whipped, etc) comes from learning about yourself well enough to be able to push to, and past, your...

Re: What exercises are ok for PF?

If you're really serious about babying your foot, I'd stay away from box jumps, burpees, broad jumps, jump rope/double unders and sprints/runs of any kind.

I had it in my left foot a year and a...
