Re: Two WODS a day

I'm no SEAL, but I don't think it would even really prepare you for BUD/S well. What do you do at BUDS? Swim, run, ruck, BW calisthenics, and carry stuff. So you train for that by doing thrusters? I...

Re: Two WODS a day

The last three days:



This is three consecutive days. And each one of these workouts includes multiple workouts within it that should be enough to exhaust oneself. Monday we have a warmup including...

Re: Two WODS a day

It should be noted that the Sealfit programming is super stupid and is guaranteed to lead to overtraining and either injury or stagnation of progress.

Remember that you have a limited supply of...

Re: Wendler's 5-3-1 vs Starting Strength

Exactly, I wish more people understood this. When 5/3/1 started getting really popular a year or so ago, I think a lot of people hopped on the 5/3/1 bandwagon who had no place being there because it...

Yeah, Rip has openly said plenty of times he regrets publishing those standards.

Re: Why Should One Be Fit?

While BMI is appropriate for describing populations as a whole, since there are so few athletes over 30, what I personally don't like is the application to individuals. Insurance companies can and do...

Re: Wendler's 5-3-1 vs Starting Strength

Exactly. There's obviously no hard and fast rule, but if one can't squat 2xBW (or more if you are <180#) I don't think that person should be doing 5/3/1. 5/3/1 is fun for people who want to fit in a...

Hi, my name is Alex Bond, I'm 6'2", 240#, with an >30 BMI and I row 2000m in 6:45. Now, I could lose a pound or two, sure, but nobody who saw me with my shirt off would call me anything like obese....

Re: C2 resistence question

Generally athletes more comfortable in endurance situations will prefer a higher damper, since they prefer the longer, slower, pull, whereas more explosive athletes will be better with a lower damper...

Re: Constantly being put down because i'm thin...

You are a twig and it is negatively affecting your life in many ways. Eat big, do 3 sets of 5 of back squats 3 times a week, and give the cardio a rest. Everyone is telling you this, open your ears.

Re: Kettlebell question

I don't think I've seen very many overhead KB swings where the swinger didn't start pulling with the shoulders at the top, which can be bad. Do eye-level, if you want to put it overhead do a snatch....

Re: Since You Guys Are Always Wondering About Sport Carry-Over

As Jason said, the exchange goes like this:

-CF is the best for making people fit!
-But these people who didn't do CF for very long beat CFers at CF.
-Well, what they were doing was a lot like CF,...

Re: Squats, etc.

Figured I should give you a report on the meet.

Squat: 352#, 396#, 418#
Bench: 220#, 242#, 264# (failed)
Deadlift: 385#, 412.5#, 440# (failed)
Total: 1072.5#

The squat was pretty uneventful, except...

Re: Squats, etc.

I've been going in later in the day. Still making linear progress on squats, but I stalled at 165# for press, and I stopped trying to make linear progress on bench so I could work on doing the pause...

Re: Lowering the Clean and Jerk

It should also be noted that one shouldn't drop a load from overhead with no control. I've seen plenty of Crossfitters do this on Youtube videos, I guess because they like the crash or something. You...

Re: Starting Strenght

I lifted 200# this time, so I want to lift 200+5# next time. You can't expect a meathead lifter to figure out complicated calculations like that.

Re: Buddy does not buy into Front Squats

Don't both using PVC to develop a good rack position. It is so light that it can be tough to do. The weight of the bar kind of stretches the wrists to make it easier to get the bar all the way into...

Re: Is Crossfit right about fitness?

None, but it is time and modal domains, and snatches and deadlifts are very much different modal domains. Deadlifts test brute strength in the core, grip, and hips, whereas snatches test explosion,...

Re: Is Crossfit right about fitness?

First off, I am 99% sure the events were not drawn out of a hopper.

The reason you bias towards short time domains is that there is a bigger difference among shorter times. Consider this: a 100m...
