Re: College Football!!!!!

Been trying to find Tebow's lifting stats. I'd love to know his CFT. Found unconfirmed rumors that his bench was 480 and his squat was over 600. If true, his CFT could be approaching 1500 ... a...

Re: Ruck March/SFAS Prep in iraq

CF and CFE will build a good foundation of GPP to help you ruck better. However, eventually you're going to have to get specific in your training and do some hard rucks.

How long after you...

Re: How do I mark meters for running on the street?

Find a 400m track and pace it off. Use a normal stride at a brisk pace, and count every time your left foot hits the ground. Divide by 4 and you have your 100m pace count. Then you can pace off a...

Re: Slowing Running Times

Occam's Razor ... most likely your measurements are off. Mapmyrun.com is not going to measure a 100m circular lap with sufficient accuracy. If the length of the two courses are different, time...

Re: Lifting barefoot? Good or bad?

I'm not talking about some exceptional Kenyans. I'm talking about YOU ... or anyone else commenting on this thread. Because I'm just a normal guy, yet I've run a marathon in shoes, and my feet were...

Re: Lifting barefoot? Good or bad?

OK, go run a marathon barefoot on pavement and tell us how that works out for you.

Re: programming legs only workout plan

Thanks to all, some good ideas there. My right hand is completely useless for pulling, pushing, and gripping. I found I can stabilize back squats by putting the wrist portion of my cast on the bar...

programming legs only workout plan

I broke my hand and will be in a cast for 6 weeks, followed by a few weeks of rehab. I was already resting an overuse injury to my other shoulder, so it looks like I'm legs-only for the next 2...

Re: Whey Protein Isnt Evil..is It

Since the consequences of eating too little protein (muscle atrophy) are worse than from eating too much protein (convert to carbs, possibly stored as fat) for most crossfitters, it would seem...

Re: broken clavicle and benching

That's normal and good. Extra bone matter to strengthen the site of the fracture.

Re: brkon hand - need one arm programming

Saw the doctor. My hand and wrist are in a cast for 6 weeks.

I tried squatting and I can do both front squats and back squats with no problem. I'll probably focus on front squats, back squats and...

Re: What do you use to log workouts?

www.logwod.com (wfs) is free. Nothing fancy ... it's ugly but it works (I'm biased though; I wrote it).

Re: broken clavicle and benching

I'm not a doctor but AFAIK when you break a bone and it heals properly, it's normally stronger than it was before you broke it. It should not get sore from exercise. I broke my collarbone twice...

Re: brkon hand - need one arm programming

I'll try sprinting. The jostling might be a bit uncomfortable til my hand sets up.

Re: brkon hand - need one arm programming

My main dilemma is how to continue to progress on squat strength while hurt. Can squats be safely done with one arm? Assisted spotting maybe?

Are pistols and single leg squats an acceptable sub...

Re: swine flue true statistics

You're in the wrong line of work if you're going to be a wuss about shots. In 20 years of Army SF I had well over 100 vaccinations of various types.

My kids (7 and 9) got the H1N1 shot yesterday,...

Re: Running Question

That's funny, because I broke a bone in my hand last night, and it never hurt. I only knew it was broken because I could see the bone end pointing in a crazy direction under the skin. In my...

Re: Running Question

So sorry to hear that. Perhaps plantar fascitis?

You were wearing your NB shoes, not your VFF, right?

This whole minimalist shoe theory has me concerned. CF'ers love theories that start with the...

brkon hand - need one arm programming

Broke a bone in my hand today. Will get prognosis from ortho on Thurs after swelling goes down, but I'm not lifting or gripping anything with my hand for at least 6 weeks.

I need some advice on...

Re: Rope Ascents

Blair, I'm not disagreeing with your perspective, only pointing out that there are other ways of looking at it. Legless rope climbs are great grip and arm training, agreed. But not everyone can do...

Re: Trade Your Back for Elite Fitness?

That's the point. It's NOT a 4x5 or 7x1 strength workout. It's a metcon workout with relatively light weight, so the athlete can get sloppy while exhausted without getting hurt. Two different...

Re: Rope Ascents

That is one way of looking at it.

Rope climbs are also an alternative mode of producing work capacity by moving your body vertically. From that perspective, the more efficient your technique, the...
