Re: Olive Oil Dressing?

Look for the higher quality (high priced) oils and vinegars if you can afford them.

I found some aged 10 years vinegar, and it was well worth the price. Remember you are just using a splash. A...

Re: What is something you've always wanted to do

Play piano.

Own a pipe organ (with real pipes)

"jam" with someone on songs I've never heard before on any interment.

Too bad I don't have much musical talent.

Re: Paleo prevents Western Diseases?

No they are not. Sometimes they are dropped, but there is a lot of junk that gets passed on. You can only count on a gene being dropped either if it confers upon the carrier a specific...

Re: CrossFit in Mens health !?

That is right out of crossfit. The warning - the main WOD is designed to be more than even the most fit humans can do easily on a regular basis. Those who are not as fit will need the warning. Of...

Re: Retail vs. Lt. Industrial

Don't forget you can move, and many do. It may be worth it starting retail for the first year, and once you get a good base of regulars (from walk-ins) move to a different space. Your needs...

Re: Pull-up Bar Coming Loose

I suggest you weld both joints (get a good welder to do this, and make sure you ask about hardening issues before you do this). Pipe thread was never meant to take the weight of someone doing a...

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

I think I did that a few years ago (before I found crossfit). I had no idea what the machine was for, and so I tried something. I soon discovered that even on max weight was easy to "push press"...

Re: (yet another)Question about odd kipping

Actually a true crossfit pull-up requires chest to the bar. Generally we accept chin over the bar as close enough. However if there is any question then it is chest to the bar or it doesn't count....

Re: red meat study

This was an intervention study. By definition it can't prove anything, only show correlation, which (everyone) correlation does not mean causation.

Most intervention studies have the following...

Re: Ocean Rowing Opportunity

The only reason I haven't signed up is I don't know if I can get 40 days off work. I'm tempted to quit. Of course that assumes I'd actually make the cut, guess I have to hit the WODs harder.

Re: How do you keep your books?

Check with your accountant. A business should have an accountant (even if you do everything yourself you want a set of eyes, that knows what they are doing, to double check your work). Use...

Re: Diabetes = Alzeheimers (sort of)

Statins are proven to help ONLY men under 65 who have heart disease. If you are in this group a stain may improve your lifetime long enough to be worth the other side effects.

Anyone else: don't...

Re: Favorite bodyweight exercise

Kid swings. Like a kettlebell swing, but use a 4 year old instead. Great fun for everyone.

Re: What are You Working Towards?????

Muscle-up. It will be a while before I try - my rings are hanging from a doorway pull-up bar. I could do a L-sit muscle up perhaps (I'm not strong enough), but I don't trust that bar enough to...

Re: Another hanging rings thread, but (I hope) with a twist

Can be done no problem. Look at swingsets for ideas, and build an A-frame (much more stable than 2 posts). 4x4 supports are overkill, but if you use anything less you need a good engineering...

Re: Olympic bar not center balanced

Sounds like a sleeve bearing. They are cheap, and work very well in general - if done right. They need regular oil, and do wear out. They can be better than ball bearings in some cases, but...

Re: Checklist for the minimum stuff needed in training outdoors only

If there is sand in the park (under the swing set), then a sandbag is ideal for you. Fill with sand, lift, and empty. No heavy weights in the car (and an Olympic barbell doesn't fit nicely in...

Re: Venting on a Vegetarian
