Re: Poor Wrist Strength

Handstands, press handstands on the floor. And rings, for that matter.

Re: Cleans Vs. Squat Cleans

It is in your long-term interest to continue doing squat cleans. Keep up the good work, champ.

Re: Improving my kips

Try practicing just the kip, without the pull-up. Do that in your warm-ups.

Re: 5x5 powerbuilding/Crossfit combo question

The problem with that is the CF model includes days like 5-5-5-5-5 (or 5x5) of the major weightlifting and powerlifting movements, and if you believe in the WOD programming (not saying that I do - I...

Re: Deadlift effect on knees

Try snatch deadlifts while standing on risers - a super-deep, relatively upright deadlift. Amazing exercise.

Re: No progress!!!

Focus on one domain for a period of time. Work on gymnastics or the olympic lifts.

Re: C2 VO2 max calculations

Quite to the contrary, I came into this community because it lacked that very tunnel vision on metrics like VO2max which are not the final product of training. Performance is the final product. The...

Re: C2 VO2 max calculations

Mr. Kulas, it is my learned opinion as a former rower that form and general strength matter more in rowing than VO2max. Furthermore, your VO2max differs based on activity, and is not universal - your...

Re: C2 VO2 max calculations

It's an estimate anyway - they shouldn't be giving numbers down to the first decimal point - that implies much greater accuracy than is realistic to predict. Just estimate your 2k time honestly and...

Re: Running: How do I fix this?

Here's your new cue: try to be short while running - don't bob up and down. I've had that problem you describe and that is what helped me. Credit goes to legendary runner, the late Gordon Pirie for...

Re: When, if ever, does it get easier?

Scale back the volume. If the WOD says 3-3-3-3-3-3-3, do 3-3-3-3. If it says 3 rounds of 50 reps of this and that, do 3 rounds of 25 of this and that. As many rounds as possible (AMRAP) in 20...

Re: rowing....dropping from !:45 to 1:30 per 500

Ignore the damper - use the drag factor. Look it up in your manual or go on C2's website. It should be 130 or so for the "average CF male" at 175 lbs. for a piece of that length. Play with it - some...

Re: Mike Caviston

If you're in the 75th, you're going to ruck no matter what MOS they give you, especially in RIP/ROP and Ranger School. If you're going SF, you're 18 series, and guess what? You'll be carrying a ruck....

Re: Mike Caviston

SF = Special Forces, i.e. the Army Special Forces regiment, a.k.a. the green berets. Let's not confuse it - we're talking about BUD/s, not SFAS. Maybe at best we're talking about all military special...

Re: Muscle-Ups?

Then they need to strength that movement. I mean, if you've never done it, it's mind-boggling how much more difficult that extra inch is, you know? Same thing with the lock-out at the top - it's more...

Re: One-armed farmers walk

If you keep that up for a few more miles, a few layers of the skin on your hands will slough off about 2 days later. Don't ask.
