Re: Wildcards?

If the girls failed to qualify then they are not the fittest. CF set the rules ...:shrug:

Just like if Froning loses he is no longer the fittest ( which is silly really IMHO)

Re: Combining 5/3/1 BBB and WODs

I actually think this is fine to do. The program is quite flexible. Try it and see how you feel. That's the fun of it. No harm there. You could include chins randomly thought the week as well...

Re: Has anyone built a size that looks like you lift via crossfit?

They are certainly still doing what would be considered Crossfit for sure. Met cons, Strength template , specific Gymnastics work. Many gyms also now have additional programming for people that are...

Re: The Premium on the Concept 2 Rower

I must admit to not every having seen one of these. Looks like they are certainly trying to copy the C2 to an extent. I would imagine , guessing, that the build quality is substantially lighter less...

Re: CrossFit is Suing the NSCA

Yes you can allow me to make this statement. It is my opinion and last time I checked I was free to express it. Now if I was trying to prove something scientific then I understand your rigour. I do...

Re: CrossFit is Suing the NSCA

Sorry, I do think GHD's S/U have unique training value just not 100+ of them that have been incorporated into various workouts at times. This would be unnecessary risk in my opinion and doing that...

Re: CrossFit is Suing the NSCA

I have one. How about those workouts with 100+ GHD sit ups? As an example. :shrug:

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

While this may be true this is VERY dependant on the sport the Pro athlete is from. Many pro athletes would have zero chance picking up and mastering these skills. Which pro sports?

Re: When to foam roll?

I completely disagree. Foam rolling can be super beneficial for mobility . Over time those tight spots stop becoming tight. You do need to be consistent with it. That is my experience at least. I...

Re: New T-Nation Steroid Article

Ok. Fair enough . Let me clarify . I know little about this guy but I think we all would not be shocked at all if his accusations are true . Discredit the author but not the assertion. ;)

Re: New T-Nation Steroid Article

Very interesting read for sure. Nothing new here having said that. I don't think it is even worth him sharing specifics of what drugs to use , how to beat tests etc..
The majority of the CF...

Re: Best Belts?

I have both a Rogue Ohio belt and the Athlete belt from Dean. I love Rogue but I honestly like the Best belt better. Seems a little thicker and slightly stiffer. For Oly lifts I do use the nylon...

Re: NPFL

Yeah I really don't see this lasting long at all . CF Games I kinda understand but even then I find it super boring to watch people workout... but obviously many people disagree. :)

Re: ON whey stnadard gold

Drew, could you direct me to that site ? I cannot see PVL for less than $85 and ON Isolate is the same price for 5 LBs. In Canada at least.

Re: Pretty glad I didn't sign up for the Open

I did 14.1. If I am lucky I can string 3 DU's together but mostly 1-2. The snatches were super easy from a weight perspective but I only got 3 rounds total due to my poor DU. It can be done if you...

Re: T NATION on Kevin Ogar

Re: Severe Doms

But in reality we are all human and all of us tend to do this so I don't get the point? Pretty hard to protect people from themselves.....don't know that this is reasonable.
