Re: Tall Guy Needs Help with Squats

Mike,
I'm 6'4", and I don't think your problems are related to your height. I'm pretty sure it's 100% flexibility. The problems you are explaining are the same problems anyone has when...

Re: 2010 games scoring - impossible to catch up?

I agree that this is a good way to score events, and you wouldn't have to take into consideration the amount of competitors remaining.

The only problem I potentially see happening is that a...

Re: Thoughts on 2010 Individual Events?

I'm not saying they don't have a chance, I was simply pointing out that a larger athlete is going to be at a disadvantage when it comes to most workouts. Rowing or anything jump/height related (like...

Re: Thoughts on 2010 Individual Events?

I'm not agreeing or disagreeing. At both the Sectional I competed in, and the Regional I competed at with my affiliate team, I was easily one of the largest CrossFitters in the entire competition. ...

Re: Thoughts on 2010 Individual Events?

Something just dawned on me regarding the ever-present argument of big man vs. small man.

There actually was a size-neutralized workout in this year's Games. The sandbag move. Technically,...

Re: 2010 games scoring - impossible to catch up?

Don't starting pitchers make more money because they pitch more innings? If for some strange reason you had a starter that never pitched more than 3 innings, I don't think he'd get paid as much as a...

Re: 2010 games scoring - impossible to catch up?

If strength isn't the sole measure of fitness, wouldn't that be a fair description of what the "fittest" athlete might look like?

skinny - efficient, low body weight, not carry around extra...

Re: Form Check - Clean & Jerk

Thanks guys. I'm not too worried about the jerk. I didn't feel comfortable getting real aggressive with the jerk in bare feet (I usually lift in VFFs), and I've split-jerked 275 before, so I'm not...

Form Check - Clean & Jerk

EThis was me today just doing heavy cleans. This is actually a PR for me but I feel that with my squat and deadlift maxes (365 and 475) I should be able to clean...

Re: Rugby Player New to Crossfit

Crossfit is by FAR the best thing I've found for my Rugby training, both in-season and out.

I play Center/Wing and I've noticed increased power, endurance, and recovery ability. My legs no longer...

Re: No one cares about your abs

I think there's a misconception here about what "caring" about abs really means.

Will having a 6-pack get you attention? - Yes

Will having a 6-pack get you a girlfriend? - No


People "care" about...

Re: LOST...anybody watching this on TV?

Personally, I thought the ending was great, and very true to the nature of the show in general.

I wish I could find the link, but JJ Abrams has often spoken about a "magic box" that he currently has...

Re: ATTENtiON LADIES!/Weight Loss on CF

This is pretty much how every conversation my wife and I have about CrossFit starts. They notice her arms, say something, ask about how she got them, etc. etc.

Re: ANOTHER POLL- power clean ratio/deadlift

Ugh, I don't know if I even want to think about this.

185 PC (never maxed it, just guestimating) / 450 DL

41%

Yuck.

Re: Stupid things teachers tell us

If you were a trainer at a CF box and you set up a WOD that involved 30 C&J's, would you give credit to your clients who did 30 snatches instead?

Let's say that client made the argument that it...

Re: Heard in the Office Today

The other week I went into my box to do a WOD earlier than usual, and I did it wearing my rugby shorts since I was taking off right away to practice afterwards. One of the girls who showed up while...

Re: Good afternoon! New to CrossFit here...

Ken,
It sounds like you're off to a great start!

One thing I'd say is that there's nothing stopping you from doing the workouts posted here. Every workout is scale-able, whether it's by reps,...

Re: the hardest wod you've done?

The Air Force WOD from this past weekend's Midwest Sectionals. It was brutal.

Otherwise I'm on board with Eva for sheer volume. That WOD just drags on.

Re: The Dog Thread

ok, guess I have to reply.

Bristow is our new (4 month old) Rottweiler puppy. She comes with us to our affiliate on weekends so she's well on her way to being a CrossFit Dog!
