Re: Are plantains paleo?

Re: Chocolate cravings.

I found chocolate tough too. A solution for me that worked best was almond stuffed dates. Sweetness and texture is quite similar. Just watch the quantity.

WTF!!! A-Hole! Jeebus!

OP: Go see a doctor. Do NOT follow dip****'s advice about jumping....

Sled Sprint Substitutions

Hi:

The affiliate I go to has programmed sled sprints, but I will be working on my own. Aside from longer sprints (w=fxd, lower f, so increase d) any other ideas for a good sub? Thanks.

Re: Shoes for OCS

Lee:

Try the Inov8 230pk. It's a light-weight flat-style shoe that is also Pose-recommended so will be similar to your H-streets in feel and is "generic" enough in appearance that no one will...

Re: Plyo Boxes - new design

Andy:

How do you like these for stability when stacked up versus a single standard angle box? Does the fit require much adjustment to keep it tight?

I really like the versatility potential...

Re: Paleo and Crossfit Questions

Certainly, and hence the reason why my original comment opened with this.



You simply provided the opening for the comment is all. And again, no offense intended. Simply making an observation.

Question Re: Shane's Garage Gym Pics...

Shane, your gym looks great! I am putting mine together as well, and was considering a GHD, but like the size of the bench here. Can you tell me what kind it is, and where you got it?? Thanks.

Re: How to get my pull up numbers up as well as fitness numbers?
