Re: Where are the pull up bars in your home town?

I went looking for the pull up bars near Burgess Park today, but I didn't see any. Are they on the same side of the tracks as Burgess Park? By the running trail, do you mean the dirt trail that runs...

Re: Fall down--get up, go again

I had back problems when I started CrossFit, which are much better now and I think CrossFit can take some credit for that. My problem has been that I just went at it too hard and hurt myself worst,...

Re: only have weights and a bench . . help?

Hmm... The "Tim Newsome design" does have a nice ring to it. :-)

Seriously though, the OP should just start following the WOD, substituting as necessary. Over time you'll learn what equipment you...

Re: Another "Is Crossfit for me?" thread!

CrossFit is about general fitness. As a specialist, you might lose some in your endurance, and gain a lot in everything else. That's assuming you are at your genetic potential in endurance. If you're...

Re: Working out with girlfriend/ "Couples" workouts?

I like the idea of a team workout, where you both are working to a common goal. The challenge is to pick something that works when the teammates are at very different skill levels. Here are some that...

Re: Good Luck Boss!! Meet Pukie!

So what happens in Chelsea if you can't finish a round in a minute? I guess you just turn it into a 30-minute Cindy. Seems like you have to have a 20-round Cindy before you have any hope of...

Re: Is my doctor stupid?

That's really interesting. I must say I love tomatoes and bell peppers and I definitely eat them a lot. Looks like I should set aside 6-12 weeks for such an experiment, and right now I don't have...

Re: New Here, a few quick beginner questions

Just doing the WOD (3 on, 1 off) should be plenty of exercise for most people. Remember that you don't get stronger by exercising. You get stronger when you're recovering. The exercise just helps...

Re: Is my doctor stupid?

I've got chronic lower back pain, and have also been told my core is weak. I did the PT thing for several months, twice. It didn't help much. Eventually I settled on Egoscue, and that seems to be...

Your buddy is trapped in a...

Re: weighted pull up

Anything that takes you from hanging from the bar to having your chin over it is a pull up as far as CrossFit is concerned. (Well, as long as you don't touch anything besides the bar.)

Re: Before the WOD

Before you work out, you need to warm up. How you do that is really up to you, but most people do the CrossFit WarmUp from the FAQ, or a slight variation thereof. There is no official CrossFit...

Re: The 'Can anyone top this?' Contest

That might just be the coolest thing I've read on these boards. It almost makes me wish I had to dress up for work, so I could be as cool as you.

Re: Thinking of Starting SS (No WOD's) on Monday

Don't bench heavy without a spotter. The bench is the most dangerous weight lifting exercise there is, and you can really hurt yourself. I think (and others can correct me) that you can just do the...
