Re: Exercise Associated Hyponatremic Encephalopathy, Gatorade and the ACSM

Mike,

If I understand the issue correctly, it's not necessarily that over-use of Gatorade is more dangerous than overhydration in general. The issue is that Gatorade has, for a number of years,...

Re: Shoulder pain TGU

Bob,

I've seen this with TGUs, but usually if I'm either rotated too far back, or letting the weight come forward a bit (particularly forward). I think what's happening is that if you're even...

Re: crossfit for disabled?

Kenneth, I think a good resource might be Crossfit Walter Reed. Have you read the journal entries about their work with wounded soldiers? I bet they'd have some great insights.

San Antonio, TX

Hey guys,

I know there's a ton of great affiliates down here, but an issue for me is transport. I was wondering if anyone who passed by the McCollough/N St Mary area on the way to their gym might be...

Re: ROGUE Tactical Sandbag Review

Folks,

Let's try to keep the mockery to a minimum. This is a serious discussion that affects livelihoods and reputations on all sides. The fact that it's taking place on an internet forum should be...

Re: Yes, there are *** Crossfitters!

Wow. Jesse, that was both unhelpful and insulting. Personally, I find it interesting that you can claim to be unbiased about a subject, and then make a rather biased statement about demographics...

Re: Dynamax Bitter at CrossFit?

Who knows why Dynamax got angry at CF? Not us.

Those other posts about Jim generally concede that he's an ethical guy trying to help his customer-base out. Dynamax did offer a legitimate...

Thanks for the link, Melissa.

My brother sent me a link to:

Again, I know he'd be thrilled if he could get to a Crossfit gym, but I think what he wants...

Hey guys,

My brother's moving down to Manchester from Burlington, and he's been looking for a Crossfit gym in the area. Now, I know CFNH is dead, but I seemed to remember that there was a group who...

Re: new workouts

Here's something I did, modifying today's WOD. I don't have a barbell for proper cleans, and HSPUs against a wall are a no-no when the neighbors complain about your tv being on (not too loud, just...

Re: Beaufort-Mike and Mark

Michael,

51.5 KG shoulder-press is not weak. Like, not at all. Alright, it's not some insane elite number, but it's...after running it through a converter, it's 113# and some change. In my opinion,...

Qualifications for Enlistment in the Military - Questions

Re: $60.00 16kg KB, A good deal?

Also, if this is a dragondoor bell, then it's top-of-the-line quality. They sell for a lot more than that on their website, and most people consider them to be one of the best on the market. The book...

Re: Beaufort-Mike and Mark

They must've added the bar and the tire since I was there last summer. Good work on what was, quite honestly, an -evil- workout.

Have you considered making yourself a sandbag? Duffel bag and a trip...

Re: Tuesday WOD

No problem. And yeah, a burpee without the pushup or the jump. Probably would've been the easiest way to describe it, but I hadn't had enough coffee yet to string words together sensibly. :/

Re: Beaufort-Mike and Mark

Nice work, Michael.

What equipment have you slapped together down there? I'll be in town at the end of the summer, and hopefully I'll have a few toys to bring with me.

Re: Tuesday WOD

Jason,
Run a google video search on squat thrusts; it's easier to show than to tell, and there are a couple of great explanatory videos out there.

Hope that helps!

Liam, I'm an amateur kickboxer, and also do a good bit of grappling in krav maga, and I can tell you that crossfit's absolutely helped me out. My punches are (for my size) powerful, and I rarely gas...

Any comments on the solid bells USkettlebells offers? They have a great price, but I have no idea about the quality.

Re: Why do you train?

Huge Deadlift PR

I don't normally post my results online, not because there's anything wrong with doing it, but because I'm incredibly shy and self-conscious. But...I need to brag, and there's nobody around to brag...
