Re: How long is your average WOD?

Most of mine fall in the 10-20 range for my Conditioning. Following Outlaw my total time is just under 2 hours by the time I warmup, do my Oly lifts and accessories, and then strength or skill, WOD...

Re: You Know You CrossFit Too Much When...

You run to the store and never get a cart unless it's a buy in bulk day, because you CrossFit and it's elite to stack everything and carry it around the store.

Re: Clean and Jerk and Snatch

Yes having the smaller plates kills my positioning, I can tell a huge difference in my setup when I get to lifts at 135 and have the extra couple inches.

And the guy behind me is something else,...

Re: One year later

Yeah I don't know why people think I look younger, but I'll take it.

Thanks to both of you, couldn't have done it without my local affiliate and the community as a whole.

Re: The Outlaw Way

These past few weeks I have crushed front squats, I'm really looking forward to a deload and then setting some new numbers.

Re: The Outlaw Way

CJ that wod almost made me puke more than once. I got through the first couple rounds and then bam it hit me like a ton of bricks. The 20 minute swim showed me that I should not go out in the...

Re: My Unoffical Guide to Starting CFFB

Thanks, that would be a big help. I'm currently doing Outlaw but I've always liked the work on the CFFB site. I'm thinking about giving it a try for a while.

Re: WOD before or after strength work?

Yes, strength first. Give yourself a short recovery time (5-10 minutes) set up during that time and then do the WOD. Sometimes I'll do some extra mobility work in between also.

Re: The Outlaw Way

That WOD was rough, but I found today's to be harder. Took me forever to get through the last round. 140 push up s really adds up.

Re: CrossFit Dating

I will say that the booze laws here are pretty weird. I haven't made it to State College yet, is it worth the visit? It's a little over an hour from me, I keep saying I'm going to drop in at one of...

Re: CrossFit Dating

Pennsylvania is a wasteland of fitness. Once you leave Pittsburgh you enter the land where no one has heard of Paleo, and Crossfit isn't even on their radar. Although there is a couple guys...

Re: You Know You CrossFit Too Much When...

Had a dream where I got kicked out of the gym I'm currently at for being too intense during a WOD with Snatch. Actually I'm surprised they haven't pulled me aside to tone it down yet.

Re: Best Crossfit Box in DC Metro Area for 200$ or under a month

I have visited Outlaw while in DC, and I can't say enough good things about the place. Rudy is a great guy and the people there were really friendly. The WOD I was at wasn't led by Rudy but he was...

Re: Inov8 Flite 230 vs NB Minimus MT20

I do not have 230s, but I have 195s.

I wear the 20s to Wod in, I"m on my second pair, and love them, the large toe box allowed me to go down a 1/2 size from the 195s and have the ends right at the...

I use a set from Atlas, had them for a couple weeks, use them in my Clean and Jerk work and presses over 180lb. I've had an issue with my left wrist for years and it's helped a lot. Using the power...

Re: Clean and Jerk and Snatch

I've been working on doing mobility wods for squat depth. But currently that's about as deep as it gets when I'm over about 340. Been doing lots of deep squat sits trying to get deeper and hold it.
