Re: CFE Anaerobic WOD

I would like to go to that certification and I had looked into it, but unfortunately I don't have $600 and I'm not old enough to actually be certified.

Re: Balancing CrossFit with Running

I'm a sophomore. My goals are to run a sub-10 3200 (fairly realistic), and a sub 4:50 1600 (very realistic). I will probably run some 4x800m relays, but nothing shorter than that. I like the WODs on...

Barbell for Home

I was looking into getting a barbell and some plates for home. I'm pretty small... I'm 16 and I only weigh 115. I was looking around on Rogue at some of their barbells. My initial thought was to go...

Re: Balancing CrossFit with Running

Yeah, metcons and track don't mix well... I don't want to be exhausted from trying to do too much. I need to find a healthy balance between strength training and running. I love doing CrossFit...

Balancing CrossFit with Running

I'm a high school runner (Track and XC). I train most of the year with a few off weeks here and there. Right now I'm still technically in a base phase even though I ran a few indoor track meets. I...

Why is CrossFit so effective?

I have heard a lot of critics of CrossFit (specifically Mark Twight) say that CrossFit is "just a bunch of really hard, random exercises" thrown together. I have personally seen huge benefits from...

Re: Crossfit + Ultra Marathon

I think I worded my post wrong. As far as injuries, I wasn't saying that CFE is likely to cause injury. A lot of people are worried that if they run lots of miles they will get hurt, but from my...

Re: Crossfit + Ultra Marathon

CrossFit Endurance is an OK concept, but results in several issues. Training for a marathon using only CFE is not smart. Jumping right into speed training like that without first building up a base...

Discouraged with Double Unders

I've been working at getting consistent enough with double unders to actually do them in the context of a workout, but lately haven't seen any progress. My first problem is getting going. Once I get...

Cross Country and CrossFit

Cross Country season is in full swing now for me which means lots of miles and little free time. I've tried to keep up with the WODs but don't always have the time or energy after practice. Also,...

"Angie"... Quick question

What is a good time for "Angie?"... for an average CrossFitter... Chris Spealler can do 100 straight chinups so he'd be like sub 5 minutes ;-) But what about everyone else?

I train at a gym, but have been looking to get some equipment so I can do the WODs at home sometimes. I already have a Stud Pullup Bar, and now I'm looking at barbells. At the sporting goods store,...

Re: Doing both main site and CFE...

I was doing both, and like Katherine said, doing 3 CFE WODs per week. However, for XC I needed to log more miles so I switched things up. I now do the mainsite WODs but sometimes skip workouts like...

Re: Supplementing main site WODs

My main goal is to be a better track and cross country runner. At the same time though, I want to develop well rounded fitness. A lot of runners aren't that strong. The runners build comes naturally...

Re: Core / Abs

A lot of people say that the best way to train your core is on your feet. Olympic lifts, OH squats/lunges, kb swings are all great. Other moves I do regularly are planks (usually with added movement...
