Re: Starting Strength: Big Reset, or Move on?

Chris, how many untrained people has Louie taken to an elite level? So someone who has never trained before and ended up an elite lifter while being coached by Louie the whole time? You state WSB...

Re: When to stop Dead Lifting

Nobody can really answer that for you in terms of "x amount in the dealift is all you need". If you can continue to increase your DL while still being able to work on sport specific skills the by...

Re: CrossFit & Wendler's 5/3/1 hybrid results reports

I would echo what the others have said. I know my assistance work would suck if I tried it after a met-con. Also, how hard are you pushing yourself on your max rep sets for the main lifts? I know...

Re: CrossFit & Wendler's 5/3/1 hybrid results reports

David, can I ask why you do the met-con before the assistance work? Just curious. Also, have you mixed up the assistance work at all since you first posted the routine? Not sure if you're...

Re: Worthless Goofy Dope!

The site only posts pics from CF affiliate sites. I figured that would be considered WFS here?

Re: 6 foot, 172 pounds... gain weight before Xfit?

My bad, total math fail. Teaches me to try and handle more than single digits in my head.

Re: 6 foot, 172 pounds... gain weight before Xfit?

You do realize by gaining at better than a 1:1 ratio of LBM to fat he actually improved his BF%, right? So he actually would be leaner with that 24 pounds of fat?

Re: progenex?!

True, SS is a novice program with finite progress, but in terms of adding muscle mass it is better than CF. If you were to take an untrained person and have them follow either program, including the...

How about Starting Strength.



So if McD's ponies up $50k for 2011 it will sit well with you?

Re: progenex?!

I know about the CF v. BB thing in the FAQ, but you said 'any program'. CF definitely doesn't add more muscle mass than ANY program.

And my second sentence was that if CF claims to add more muscle...

When did CF make that claim? And if it did than this actually is a perfect marriage of brands.

Re: progenex?!

Not sure what claims I made that were outlandish. Never said anything is wrong with protein powder either. My point is Progenex, like most other supplement companies, makes bold statements about...

Re: progenex?!

Yes, that is a great comparison. A company that sells equipment is the same as a company making extraordinary claims about powdered supplements. You win.

Re: progenex?!

I'm sure Progenex is giving $25k out of the kindness of their hearts. I'm sure it has nothig to do with the money they'll make off of CFers now that they have Coach's blessing. This isn't at all...

Re: Did a no-no at Planet Fitness

Isn't kicking someone out due to an exercise they do, or due to grunting while lifting, judging?

Re: Dropping the bench press from SS?

I wonder how much better Bill Kazmaier would have done in the WSM contests had he only done weighted push ups instead of wasting all that time on the silly bench.

Re: Deadlift Check 1x5 275#

Re: Squat, Deadlift, and Power Clean Form Check

Robert is spot on about the back angle on the squat. That was my biggest problem and I fixed it by backing off the weight and focusing on it, and really working on hip mobility by stretching and...

Re: Fat Gain on SS

No offense, but you are not a very big guy at all. You really shouldn't worry about a bit of fat at your size. Your lifts are pretty decent, but if you are still making solid linear gains I...

Re: Fat Gain on SS

People do SS for all different lengths of time. Some do 12 or 16 week cycles while others work it until all their linear gains are done. You are definitely spot on about adding met-cons. If you...
