Re: CrossFit Woman's Creed . . . Question

Odd question but Mike are you related to Bob and Mary? I grew up in Sutter Creek and worked for them for a few years at Lake Amador.

Re: Form Vs. Time

Ignoring time and working in good form is tough. I know for me pull ups were and still are my bane. I started in March using the large purple band for my pull ups and therefore went faster. Now I...

Re: Crossfit Training Program Review.

Re: Taking steroids before joining the military?

Your profile shows you live in Fresno. I know for a fact there are 3 boxes within 15mi of wherever you live. I lived in the No for 7 years so I know what I'm talking about. Seek one out and talk to...

Re: First step to regaining my life

Welcome and good luck. Even though u can't afford a box I'd recommend going to a box at least a few times to make sure you understand the basic lifts and movements so you don't get hurt. Most boxes...

Re: Supportive Underwear for Deadlifting?

Re: Do you ever feel inadequate?

Everyone feels this way when starting, and by everyone I mean me. When I started I thought I was in pretty good shape as I had just completed an Ironman triathlon 3 months prior. Man was I wrong. In...

Greatest Athlete of all time.

Even if triathlon isn't your thing, this kid embodies the definition of what it means to be a sportsman. Also greatest brother ever. Worth the time to watch.

If the guys in your box look anorexic I'd start looking for a new box to train at. Anorexic and Crossfit don't go hand in hand in my book

Re: Addicted to it! But got a shoe question.

Get them from zappos and...
