Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

What's the schedule like for the rest of the day (teams and individuals) as far as event times? And will it all be available through the Watch ESPN app, even if it's airing live on ESPN?

Re: Embarrassing Crossfit

In my experience, to avoid that "frustration" part of it - do the majority of your practice outside of the WOD (whether that be in your boxes open gym, at home, before/after the WOD). When I was...

Re: PR Thread

155# power clean today... I was stuck at 135# for so long, I don't know where these last 20-lbs have come from but I'm not going to complain.

Re: Is this for me?

If your only goals are appearance-based then there are probably better ways to go about them. To get a 6-pack your main focus should be diet (you might want to check out the nutrition thread here). ...

Re: PR Thread

Nice job, everyone. I got two PR's this week - 130# hang clean Monday and 230# deadlift yesterday! This has been a great month for me strength-wise.

Re: water

The minimum I drink is 1/2 my body weight in oz. (80 oz). I usually try for 100 oz though, and 1 gallon if I can manage it, especially if I sweated a lot during my workout that day. I normally count...

Re: Fun one I made up today

I wonder what distance would be best if I were to sub in rowing for airdyne... or maybe row for calories instead (10 DU = 1 cal or something).

Although some days with my DUs I would spend more time...

Re: can I get your thoughts on gloves?

>> Yes, to keep my hands from tearing, and to be able to keep training once I have a tear

>> I have tried 3 pair of gloves and a pair of gymnastics grips, so yes kind of.

>> Sturdy/durable

>> Yes,...

Re: Pistol squats - is this allowed?

Okay, thanks guys. That's kind of what I figured. I will keep working to doing them without the holding of my leg, but I had to hold on the the rig with both hands about a month ago and pull myself...

Pistol squats - is this allowed?

I normally see people hold their foot straight out in front, but can you fold your leg in front of your body (and still count as a good rep)? For example, if I am squatting on my left leg, my right...

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

They go with who had the higher finish in all the events. I would guess if that was tied, they go to the next highest finishing place, etc.

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

I believe they said it would switch back to ESPN2 once tennis is over. They are still streaming live on ESPN3 if that helps at all.

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

How does the 1-minute rest work? Does it start for each individual after their handstand walk? Or after the last person finished the handstand walk?

Also, side note, I'm really happy Bailey made...

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Woooww. Heavy deadlifts, weighted pistols, handstand walks, muscle ups, HSPUs, overhead-walking lunges... This is going to be so much fun to watch. And I'm going to go ahead and predict Rich comes...

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Rich beats Dan by 1.7 seconds in the sprint chipper to pick up his first win of the games. I think Jason will be 4th overall?

Edit - I mean 4th in this event, not overall standings.

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Yes!! I think it's the hair. Although I feel like I'm cheating on my original crossfit crush (Dan Bailey) when I see Fisher, haha ;)
