Re: Strength vs. Speed

Slower…Anything longer than a 50-100 yard sprint is slower. 400m run used to be 1:58..not fast by anyones standards but now is about 2:30…and that's when I feel like I'm really running. I haven't...

Re: Strength vs. Speed

Ha Chris…sorry didn't see your post. Meaning, benchmark workouts like Helen, Grace etc…I'm much slower. Body weight stuff, pull ups etc..slower, can't do as many. Running, slower.

I actually...

Re: Strength vs. Speed

I agree…it's weird. I'm not surprised that I'm slower…just how much slower I am. I'm 5'10" and 180…22% body fat…Just got dunked a month ago. I've been paleo for a while but just switched to zone...

Re: Strength vs. Speed

I'm very fast at a 50 or 100 yard sprint even…but then I die. We do have running intervals, but not a lot. Today was 200m sprint, 10kbs, 15 burpees, this is they sort of workout that doesn't end...

Re: Strength vs. Speed

I've always been a slow runner. 9 minute mile…I just suck at running. But pull ups, down from 21 consecutive to maybe 8 or 9. Did Helen, previously 1100 minutes…now just over 15. Just slow, no...

Re: Strength vs. Speed

Yes, we work strength daily followed by more of a metcon, but often with heavy weight. If it's not hard to improve conditioning…why am I going backwards? Thanks.

Strength vs. Speed

I worked out at a CF gym that programmed mostly metcons for 1.5 years and made speed gains and body weight exercise gains, increase in pull up numbers etc…but didn't progress in strength. I switched...

Re: Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Tamara's log

Annie Thorisdottir squats 250 and deadlifts 350. If you think she got those numbers by doing "only" Crossfit, you're dead wrong. And, as she's the winner of the 2011 Crossfit Games is difficult to...

Re: How do newbies typically progress with WOD results?

Scale down until your times improve. When you are finishing where you want to be consistently then add weight and you'll slow down but stay there until you're back finishing where you want to be,...

Re: Running...I suck at it...

Check out the Inov8s. They have from super minimal to more cushion, so you can start with the more and work your way down. Againfaster.com has them so does Zappos.

Re: One year of eating "clean" and lifting kind of heavy with pics

Be sure you can do at least 10-15 deep pull ups on the rings and seperately at least 10 super deep dips on the rings. Once that is done, work on the progression from a place where you can stand and...
