Re: Ultra Marathon from Crossfit alone?

I don't think that just going off of the mainpage WOD is a good idea because, in my experience, the lack of time and volume doesn't prepare your musculo-skeletal system for the pounding of 100 miles...

Samson Stretch Rationale

The Samson Stretch seems incongrous in the CFWU. A static stretch amongst all these other movements based on Full ROM. What's the rationale? To keep the psoas from over-tightening? Any...

Re: C'Fiting Early In The Morning?

Re: Crossfit: forging elite fitness?

That was awesome on so many different levels. Something I really like is that this is a fantastic example of the Infinite Scalability of CF. Too cool. Congrats to CFLexington on that.

Re: % of 1 RM for various set/rep protocols?

What I have done was work in the 90% range on the 1's, and depending on how I was feeling, go for a new PR. Good question on the "failed attempt as a set" question. Again, depending how I'm...

% of 1 RM for various set/rep protocols?

Hi all,

As a rule of thumb, what percentages of one's 1RM does everyone use for:

1-1-1-1-1-1-1

3-3-3-3-3

5-5-5?

Re: benefits of the power cage?

If it's for an affiliate to train folks of varying degrees of skill and strength, I would say go with the racks. Why take the chance of injuring someone? Those who don't want to use 'em don't have...

My questions are:

"What was the nature of your knee injury?"

"Was it diagnosed by an orthopedic surgeon?"
