Re: So Crossfit Football Combine....

The record from the combine is 51 reps, or do you mean the most done at a cert?

Re: Who here has a 300+ C&J ?

I watched Jon Markovich hit a 295 lb power clean during the 6th of 6 workouts in two days at last year's OC Throwdown, in running shoes with pretty crappy-looking technique and almost no dip, let...

Re: Box & vertical Jump

10.5' is a pretty damn good broad jump. That's just shy of what Adrian Peterson and Reggie Bush got at the NFL combine.

As for the box jump and vertical jump, there's a pretty damn big difference....

Re: Future of Crossfit gyms

CrossFit Havoc here in Lawton, OK has an entirely open gym. It's open 8 hours a day (but closed on Sundays) and you can come in whenever you want with no formal classes, though there's always a...

Re: ANOTHER POLL- power clean ratio/deadlift

255 lb PC / 375 lb DL = 0.68

I don't know why it's that high. I can't do a full clean with anywhere near that weight because my balance at the bottom is terrible and I fall over, so it isn't great...

Re: What's Your Max Height Box Jump?

My all-time PR was 66" in high school at a height of 6'2", with a two-step approach. I was never really a freak leaper (could throw down a two-handed dunk, but barely), but I was extremely flexible...

Re: Pull-up/Push-up Question

If you got into the academy, don't you have three years or so to get acclimated to the altitude before your PFT score actually counts for something?

Re: Perfect SS Diet

No. I can't drink milk. I can tolerate a little bit with lactase supplementation, but nowhere near a gallon and certainly not two.

It's possible I'm wrong to think it can be done. For the record,...

Re: Rowing times of crossfit athletes

Certain activities are more dependent on anthropometry and technique than others. There's a reason rowing teams require you to be tall to join, and there's a reason they train specifically to row....

Re: Too much of a good fat?

Almonds are a little rich in omega-6, and polyunsaturated fats in general aren't necessarily the best if they're making up too much of your total fat profile. They oxidize easily because of the less...

Re: Perfect SS Diet

I don't personally agree that it's difficult to do it eating "clean," because if you count milk as clean, you can always drink more and you can always eat more meat. Doing a gallon of milk and two...

Re: Paleo Blog Day 1

If they provide bulk half and half and you can tolerate dairy (there's very little lactose in it anyway; it's almost all fat), you might want to consider drinking that. It can add a lot of calories...

Re: All the bread, pasta and rice you want!!

I don't get why everyone is up in arms about this. One of the ironic tragedies of human evolution is that we're poorly adapted to metabolizing a staple item that allows us to efficiently feed huge...

Re: My current plan

Deadlifts and o-lifts are probably not logistically possible for a group in the Ft. Carson gym (they're hard for an individual in the Ft. Carson gym). I can understand not including them and it's...

Re: Two WODS a day

I may be the only one this bothers, but if you're doing more than one a day, it isn't a WOD any more. CrossFit Football's use of "Daily WOD" is likewise as redundant as "ATM machine" or "PIN number."

Re: Leg Strength in preperation for ruck marches

Re: question "crossfit rxd" diet

I've been thinking about that a bit lately. I'm not the biggest fan of paleo re-enactment, but it stands to reason that it makes some difference what your specific descent is. Middle eastern and...

Re: Struggling with what to do AFTER 30 day Paleo challenge..

My diet isn't paleo. It's informed by evolutionary principles, but I don't really care whether an actual pre-agricultural person ever ate what I eat. That said, my only goal with it is to live a long...

Re: question "crossfit rxd" diet

Re: how long do real life situations last?

I doubt subcutaneous fat is protective against crushing injuries, but it is protective against slashing knife wounds and cold-water immersion.

I'd think the difference between survival and death in...

Re: Consuming calories, how many do you?

I'm not saying it'll hurt you. It's just too filling without having many calories because it's so lean, though I suppose that depends somewhat on the cut. Wouldn't recommend it for someone trying to...

Re: Sectional WoD's Upto date.

I don't know if other sectionals did this, but the SoCal sectional involved running stadium stairs, which you won't be able to duplicate. I'm willing to bet it was a little harder doing cleans,...

Re: Functional Movements/Strength vs. Bodybuilding???
