Re: Games age categories

That's why you have an Open division that welcomes all comers from any weight or age group.

I think most everyone (though not 100%) looks at this question through their own eyes. I'm a lightweight...

Re: CrossFit Games Qualifier Observations

All of those are more tests of athleticsm rather than fitness. One can be unbelievably fit, yet still run a very pedestrian 100m time or shuttle drill. On the other hand, great athletes can perform...

Re: Carb Cycling & CF

Ron,

Find the Anabolic Diet thread on this board. Not exactly UD2.0, but similar.

Re: Dietary Fat, Insulin, and Glucagon

Danni,

Can we at least agree that the diets most everyone thinks of when they hear "low-carb diet" are Atkins, South Beach, Protein Power (and on fitness boards) the Anabolic Diet, Cyclic Ketogenic...

Re: Fish oils and Vitamin E?

Almonds have a relatively high amount. EVOO has some. Avocados do too. I haven't done enough research to say whether or not a diet high in those foods is enough to counter-balance supplementing with...

Re: Dietary Fat, Insulin, and Glucagon

Advise against the Zone as a proper low-carb diet for a study trying to assess the efficacy of a low carb diet? Yes, I would, as it is not low-carb. Advise against it as an effective weight loss diet...

Re: Dietary Fat, Insulin, and Glucagon

Where's the low carb diet in this study Danni? Low carb is not 35-65% of caloric intake. Let's see one at 15% or less.

Re: Best Fat Loss/Weight Loss Program

I like that answer, good to hear it's what your clients get. :pepper:

IMO, for many, chasing performance comes on its own once they see major results in the body comp area.

I've had great results...

Jason - have you considered that that is YOUR goal, but possibly not THE primary goal of (some of) your clients?

Re: Paleo/Anabolic Diet Question/Insight!

I think you may need to keep reading more.

First, it doesn't appear you understand the basic principles of the AD.

Second, your list of daily foods includes several decidedly non-Paleo foods...

Re: Question about Carbs w/ the Anabolic Diet...

TB,

That's just where I naturally end up on the LC days by eating when I'm hungry. No scientific basis for it.

Re: Fish oils and Vitamin E?

Yeah, the Carlson's liquid I use has E too. But only 1IU per serving on CLO and 10IU in the fish oil.

Re: "Hansen"

Is everyone overlooking that Zach does his swings one-handed?

I do 'em one-handed fairly often (though with about half the weight Zach can apparently handle!) and there's no way I'd do those to 12...

Fish oils and Vitamin E?

Are those of you who are supplementing with a lot of fish oil (1 gram+ per day) also supplementing Vitamin E? A couple of weeks ago, I read somewhere that it is critical to do so because the PUFA's...

Re: "Hansen"

Since our member with the 65lb kettlebell moved, my options were 70lb dumbell or 55lb kb. Opted to start with db. Haven't done db swings in a long...

Re: Weekend Eating Troubles

Yes I know. But your analogy was slough off all week on WOD's then "make up for it" on the weekends.

Re: Weekend Eating Troubles

I agree with your premise, but there is a flaw. No one I've seen advocates eating whatever you want during the week, and then making up for it by eating clean on the weekends.

Re: Grace: Go heavy or light?

I'm one, though I'm not hypothetical. :)

I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm busting my *** on the ME days, trying to get stronger. The oly lifts in particular are a goat, and power lifts to a...

Re: Anabolic Diet - My Progress

The first sentence is BS....

FOR ME.

I've seen no dropoff in performance in WOD's lasting anywhere between 5 and 45 minutes - and significant improvements on most of those.

That said, I absolutely...

Re: Grace: Go heavy or light?

There is certainly a rationale for it - how long it takes the "average crossfitter" or how long it takes a firebreather.

What about something like Hansen? At what point does a WOD have enough data...

Re: Grace: Go heavy or light?

Oh I definitely get it.

What I'm saying is that the best effect of the workout can be different things for different people.

Say you have a new client who's a long-term powerlifter. They can clean...

Re: Grace: Go heavy or light?

Okay, that's your perspective as an affiliate.

But let's say one of the stragglers you mentioned has a 22-round Cindy (so his metcon ability is proven). He says "look, 135 is a challenge for...

Re: Scaling based on performance

Your Nancy and Karen times are very respectable. Not fire-breather level, but not bad at all.

Personally, I think the decision to scale is entirely yours (plus maybe input from your coach/trainer)....
