Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I was thinking the exact same thing. I realize it should be 100% till the end, but if you think the only competition is Mayhem, and Mayhem pulls ahead it can be debilitating. I think I counted 4 no...

Re: Pre Workout

I use Altius pre-workout and highly recommend it.

pre-workout is the only supplement I don't mind spending some extra money on because I can feel the difference when I find a product I like.

Re: Nutrition for a dummy (me), MyFitnessPal app

Thanks for the info.

I can't speak for the majority of people but my biggest problem was knowing how to get started and fear that it would be difficult. Macro tracking turned what I thought was...

Re: 14.3 tips and strageties. Jump or step?

If you got through 275, the 15 box jumps after , and had time for 4 reps at 315 - I am 100% positive that you can pull more than 405 off the floor.

Re: 14.3 tips and strageties. Jump or step?

You typed that as I was responding - I agree 100%. We have the same exact 1rm and every rep at 275 felt like my 1rm today. I ended up getting back to the box for 4 jumps after the 275.

Re: 14.3 tips and strageties. Jump or step?

Unless you are elite I would suggest step ups.

Sounds stupid - but in this 8 min amrap, time is not the factor. It's strength.

I was at the 275 DL at 4:40 doing step ups. 275 is not usually...

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

Another post responded what I would say to this- I can run 5k or 26.2 miles without signing up for a race. I don't think its an apples an oranges comparison.

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

Accomplishments are all relative. I could barely snatch 135 prior to 13.1, and I ended up with 13 reps at 135. That score isn't very "good" by comparison to others but it was an accomplishment for...
