Re: Average Joe vs the Elite few - when do we know we are good at something?

Alex this is why I love the CF Open workouts. You have the ability to compare 5 workouts with diverse movements to tens of thousands of people. In general the people that enter the Open are...

Re: crossfit equipment advice

The magic of CrossFit is even if the weight is too light then you can just go faster and longer and still get an effective workout.

I remember doing my first "Grace" workout. It is 30 clean & jerks...

Re: Working with injuries, what can I do?

Scott:

I won't even pretend to be qualified to tell you want to do. I'm probably not even able to really explain the difference between tendinosis and tendonitis. You can also write off what I am...

Re: My back squat has been stuck for 1 year

Nik - I did start an additional 2x per week Olympic weightlifting class which has increased the frequency of overhead and front squatting. It may have helped. My intention has been to add in an...

Re: My back squat has been stuck for 1 year

A little update. Our gym programmed CrossFit total today. I finally broke through the plateau. I only got a 5 pound PR on my back squat, but I'll take it. AND I'm very happy about it.

A couple...

Re: My back squat has been stuck for 1 year

I thought this was put to rest so I hadn't jumped back in here in awhile. I was surprised to see so many more replies.

I do appreciate someone (I think Blair) mentioning my age. There so many...

Re: My back squat has been stuck for 1 year

Well just because I am eating healthy shouldn't also mean I am eating low calorie. Yesterday I had 3 eggs and a piece of fruit. Then a sirloin steak with 1/2 a sweet potato and a beef steak tomato. ...

Re: Telling a member to find another place

Sounds to me like you are escalating the discussion here. A few guys offered their opinion that differed from the agreement you were looking for, but then you lashed out (sort of), but the...

Re: I Need Help

Shane, do you have access to equipment that will allow you to do some snatch and clean & jerk work? I noticed you mentioned these lifts are unmeasured.

I think everyone's advice so far has been...

Re: My back squat has been stuck for 1 year

I've also made a big commitment to my nutrition lately which I hope will have an affect on everything. I'm about 1 month into a strict Paleo (no Paleo approved sugars) eating program. The biggest...

Re: My back squat has been stuck for 1 year

Thanks again for the input everyone.

The general consensus seems to be that it's probably not a form thing. It's probably not an age thing, but it is probably just 1 heavy squat session per week is...

Re: My back squat has been stuck for 1 year

@Brendan - I hear what you are saying. The difficult question is, "What do I train for?" I don't intend to be a CF Games competitor. I show up mainly because I want to be healthy and fit. Sure it...

My back squat has been stuck for 1 year

For reference I am 39 years old, 6'1", 220 pounds. The last time I had my body fat checked it was about 25%. That was a year ago. It probably hasn't changed dramatically since then.

I thoroughly...

Re: Need some advice

Well there is an actual program called crossfit football (cffb). You should look into it.

Re: Why do Push Ups Suck so Much?

Interesting chart with the percentages Blair. I guess you can apply them as targets to know if you are lacking strength in a particular area. Just don't get neurotic about it. Do you know what the...

Re: Why do Push Ups Suck so Much?

Makes sense Nik. Thanks again for your feedback.

I am definitely much stronger in the legs then my upper body. Have been my whole life. Workouts sometimes get strange. A good example is heavy...

Re: Why do Push Ups Suck so Much?

Thank you for the feedback. As Nik said I feel like my form is spot on when I am fresh, but as I get closer to exhaustion form breaks down everywhere. The saggy plank isn't so much that my core is...

Why do Push Ups Suck so Much?

I did Cindy yesterday. 20 minute AMRAP 5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 air squats.

The WOD is immaterial really. Pretty much any workout that involves a high number of push ups is difficult. Pull ups...

Re: Denied CrossFit Affiliation due to trademark infringement.

Why not set up your own affiliate under your own LLC or something out of your garage and then when you quickly outgrow the garage rent space from a local gym? ;)

Eric,

You made me smile. I see stars in every heavy leg workout. Good to know I am not necessarily doing anything wrong.
