The winners do what they need to get the energy required to fuel their hard...

Re: programming olympic lifts

Maybe it's because I'm greek, myself, but I think Pyrros Dimas is the greatest looking athlete in olympic lifting. http://www.seryakstrength.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/PyrrosDIMAS.jpg WFS, bros.

Re: Prevalence of athletes in CF

Yeah - everyone's input on this is going to be anecdotal; at the two gyms I've attended, there was a sprinkling of "current or former athletes" but the majority of the members would not be considered...

Re: Collegiate Crossfitters

I grew playing in soccer clubs, so running just came with the sport. I really want to go to a track and figure out what my 400m was. I know I can break out a pretty decent time, because I'm generally...

Re: PR 286lbs Snatch and 330lbs Clean and Jerk

Re: The 405 Squat

I always heard that high-bar translated into better olympic lifting numbers than low-bar. Is this wrong? I am such noob :(

Re: The 405 Squat

Just curious, what's your DL? I find deadlift is way easier for me. Current 1RM is 435, but I haven't tested in a while. I think I can break 450 once I test in the next week or so.

Re: The 405 Squat

Re: Your 2011 Crossfit Games competitor "Power Trio Of Hotness" list

Lol okay - I'm really on your case right now. You should definitely feel threatened...?

I'll put it this way: I'd go for most of the straight ones.

Re: Your 2011 Crossfit Games competitor "Power Trio Of Hotness" list

What's wrong with a little extra body fat on girls? What, do you think their boobs and butts are just made out of muscle?

Hottest girl is obviously the blonde judge from this past Saturday's...

Not impressive for an adult male? How many average adult males do you know are squatting 2x body-weight?

Re: You must eat this much to play

I've been squatting 2x a week for 8 weeks now. In 10 more lbs. I'm going to hit my previous 1rm @265 for 3x5x265. This is only squatting 2x a week with RDLs and press/bench and metcons thrown in. How...
