Re: press depth

The press is not the same as a push press. The push press, jerk and front squat require racking the bar on the delts. The press does not require that. The bottom position of the press will be...

Re: Best book on stretching?

I don't see why her torso should be vertical. The lunge/samson stretch is a hip flexor stretch so you want:
1) the hip forward of the knee that is on the floor;

Re: Yoga

Thanks Michael for the shout out!

Yeah I'm a yoga instructor and I think there is a lot of value in yoga despite what the Greg Everett's of the world say. It depends on what you want. No, yoga is...

Re: Working Towards...

Anu

Looks like things are going well.

First, Deadlifting should usually be done with full size, 17" diameter, plates. If you only have a men's bar and iron plates, that means you have to start at...

Re: Working Towards...

I think it's time to start doing some of the WODs scaled down to your level. 30 minutes is plenty of time to get a workout in.

Start with some half-tabatas. 4 rounds of 20 seconds work/ 10...

Re: A Thought On How to Score Non RX'd WOD's In the CF Games

You made some references to heavier loads for heavier athletes and lighter loads for lighter athletes. Thus it leads me to assume you think that heavier athletes have some advantage over...

Re: A Thought On How to Score Non RX'd WOD's In the CF Games

First of all, the randomness of the WODs prepares us for randomness. So a crossfit competitor should be comfortable waking up on the day of the games not knowing what is in store for him/her. ...

Re: A Thought On How to Score Non RX'd WOD's In the CF Games

Furthermore, the definition of "Increased work capacity over broad time and modal domains" means that we should be striving to be fit or capable at both ends of the spectrum: 1 rep at 400lbs and 4...

Re: A Thought On How to Score Non RX'd WOD's In the CF Games

Hari your idea works within a relatively small window. When you move to margins, the idea of doing more reps with less weight fails to get the same results. This is the same argument that women who...
