Re: CFFB zone activity factor

I think Matt Chan would disagree with this statement. As a 210# adult male, he has spoken numerous times about using the Zone while competing. Matt, and his wife Cherie have a couple "nutrition and...

Re: Cffb strength wod

Just stick with the crossfit football programming and drop the weight for a reset. Don't do anything extra. Track your food for a bit and make sure you are eating enough. Do the same for sleep and...

Re: Intermittent fasting and Crossfit Questions

Unless you are working with someone, it is probably best to have a pretty good understanding of the mental and physical aspects of nutrition before beginning something like IF. You should re-read...

Re: A Real Video About Sugar (Better than 60 Minutes drivel)

This is how I eat using some IF principals:

Wake up, 5:30am. Sip BCAA/Glutamine mixture until I work out
Workout
Sip BCAA mixture until I eat (30g bcaa at 2:1:1 + 10g of glutamine)
Eat between 11...

Re: INtermediate fasting question

When are you going to bed? Five seems awfully early for a last meal; however, it shouldn't be impacting your bowl movements.

Re: INtermediate fasting question

Does no issue mean issues? I think your post is somewhat unclear. Regardless, whenever you change your diet or eating habits, there is a period of adjustment for the body.

As an aside, that does...

Re: rich froning jr's diet?

Re: Prioritizing Supplements?

1) Fish Oil
2) BCAA supplement

The fish oil is common sense. Unless your food is all ethically sourced (read: grass fed beef, etc.) it is really worth taking. Liquid form is cheap.

The BCAA...

Re: Deadlift

Some people, like Wendler, say cleans or power cleans are a good warmup. I am finally getting comfortable with those movements and will probably set up something like this on deadlift days:

Re: Why deloading instead of adjusting frequency?

I am going to try and explain my point one last time:
My argument is as follows: The OP asked about frequency. I stated that frequency can be high if everything else in your life lines up. I...

Re: Why deloading instead of adjusting frequency?

Re: Why deloading instead of adjusting frequency?

Genetics is an excuse for people who lack dedication. Did you even read over any of the site? Lewis himself has stated he feels he has poor genetics. Genetics plays a role, but more of a roll in...

Re: so.....I'm starting my own annual CrossFit Games
