CF Games Regionals Standings Comparisson

Hi guys,
I created the attached Excel file to compare all the athletes competing in the recent CF Games Regionals and see how they stood against each other. Interesting to say the least. Shame the...

Re: Crossfit in Barcelona

Hi Michael,
This is something I've been checking regularly for a couple of years and so far nothing. There are a few Spanish CFers in the area but no Box or CF-friendly globo gym that I know of. If...

Re: Will CrossFit & Endurance Sports Work Together?

The article is old, from way back 2005 or 2006. Dr. Barry Sears himself uses Karnazes as an example, or did way back when, and the first time I heard the above quote was watching a video of one of...

Re: Will CrossFit & Endurance Sports Work Together?

The ultra distance runner Dean Karnazes does the Zone Diet. He loads up on hi octane fat the day before a run and uses that as energy (greasy hamburgers, fries, etc.). I'm not sure if this includes...

Hi Miguel Angel,
There's a branch of CrossFit called CrossFit Endurance http://www.crossfitendurance.com (WFS) which tells you what you have to do depending on your specialty and distance to train...

Re: Is there a point where one should stop lifting more weight?

Hey Seth,
The cat, it's a pic from the internet where it's swimming, hence the peed off expression. There's a version of it with the caption "This cat is going to F**k somebody up". :P

Re: Is there a point where one should stop lifting more weight?

Muscles get stronger faster than ligaments and tendons. It's easy to have pain in joints when lifting heavy but after some time, and if you're not overdoing it, joint pain will turn into simple...

Re: CrossFit : Weight v. Time : Why?

Why is the 100m sprint 100m? Why not 124m?

I could go on with this forever.

Weights are what they are and period. It's all SCALABLE. And you can use any % of your 1RM you like, for gains in...

Re: Squat Form Check

Hey Ian, thx for your feedback.
103,5Kg X11 is heavy for me, believe me. Doesn't look like there's much on the barbell but there are two 20Kg discs on either side plus the smaller ones. :P
Regarding...

Re: Squat Form Check

Maybe the CrossFit Endurance site? I dunno if they have a forum there but I'm guessing they do.

Re: Squat Form Check

For me, that was heavy :P
Yea, I try to do that when I remember, but today I was protecting my bad knee. Next time :)

Thx for the feedback Ralston :)

Squat Form Check

First time I've been able to make a video of myself. Never had any spotter or coaching. There's a slight rocking due to me "protecting" my bad right knee which was in a bit of pain today, but slowing...

Re: My Beef with the Crossfit Games

Stephen, are you honestly downplaying the definition of fitness we all some way or another adhere to ? What is your definition of fitness and how is it different to the games' definition?

Re: Over training while preparing for USMC OCS

It really depends on your current fitness level, age, recovery rate, nutrition, etc.
I couldn't do more than a couple of workouts a day due to my age and recovery rate but take the elite CFers who do...

Re: Working up to a WOD

What Eric, in his own special way ( :P ), is trying to tell you is that at BrandX they scale the WODs for any and all levels of fitness. Take your pick (of fitness level), do it, post your times, get...

Re: Meaning of PRs

There's another adaptation that occurs which isn't muscular or cardiovascular and this is mental. It is very hard doing your best time in a Workout the first time, even if you are ultra-fit, and this...

Re: Butterfly kipping vs regular kipping?

I always do deadhang, unless I'm only able to chain 2 or 3 in a WOD, in which case I'll kip as necessary. Haven't been able to tame the butterfly yet but working on it, for speed if for nothing...

Re: Would SS help with my goals?

Something I like from 5/3/1 and have used in a SS-like strength program is doing a max rep effort in the last set. So, say I did 5X5 squat with 200lbs, the last set would be an all out max rep...

Re: Would SS help with my goals?

You can get it from the CF Journal if you're subscribed.

And looking at your lifts I wouldn't say you're weak. You're uneven (90lb OHS and only 110lb Back Squat?) but not weak. The more you practice...

I think Tracey means she is selling the equipment and clients and rental of premises, or maybe even that in the sale too. If you want equipment don't call her, and if you're looking for a box, don't...

Re: Ideal Body Weight

We all are Damien, I'm pretty sure of it. :P
Nevertheless, as I'm sure you're aware of, most of the Elite CFers all have their strengths and weaknesses. Mikko Salo only won one event in the 2009 CF...

Re: Would SS help with my goals?

Not stupid at all :)

5/3/1 is more a periodization type strength program, using percentages of your max to allow for a slower but longer progression. This program has assistance work for each lift...

Re: Would SS help with my goals?

I think the important thing to focus on here is stop using the SS acronym and just do a linear strength program together with your WODs. I do 5/3/1 plus WOD or conditioning as per the program and...
