Re: An Effective, Yet Simple Strength and Conditioning Program

1. You can use something like this:

to calculate your 5rm. It's not absolute science, but you're supposed to be starting a...

Re: Rate my program?

No doubt. Heavy deads are no joke. Key emphasis on heavy. I'm doing 5/3/1 with some conditioning, so my recent venture of 440# deadlift at max reps (7 for me) was just nasty. I can't imagine...

Re: Crossfit for a skinny guy?

Eric Montgomery can advise better, but I think you want to hit your current 5 rep max about 4-6 weeks into the program. Deadlifts are 10# each workout. Everything else is 5# each workout (that'll...

Re: Am I blindly programming?

You're not annoying. I think I speak for many of us that replied when I say I find your willingness to listen very refreshing. My advice is to get a good bench. Search the equipment forum for...

Re: Crossfit for a skinny guy?

+1 for 70's big if you wanna get strong and add size.

It took my squat from a 315# 2x5 to a 340# x 10 just yesterday.

My DL went from a 365# x 5 to a 505# x 1.

Bench was even better. 165# for 3x5...

Re: Am I blindly programming?

Right. But what is stronger?

Are you trying to reach a 600# deadlift from a current 450#?

Or do you have a 225# dead and want to see 315#?

The answers will be different, and dependent on your...

Re: Am I blindly programming?

Can you quantify this a little better? Might help to get you some more specific advice.

Also...with that volume of metcons, I'd imagine it's gonna be hard to put on size without making eating your...

Re: An Effective, Yet Simple Strength and Conditioning Program

If the lifts still feel good (not close to failing, i.e. missing 3 or more reps over all sets), I say keep going. I took some time off due to the holidays and jumped backed in with no reset and had...

Re: Fractional Plates worth the money?

Re: my first CF experience: Fran!

Something I did when I was following mainpage was go back in time several months (or even a year). I was following a 3/1/2/1 work/rest split and the 3/1 on the mainpage doesn't jive with that. I...

Re: Fight Gone Bad/MMA/Need advice

3.4. Substitute for wall-ball throws?
The "standard" substitute for Wall Ball is either dumbbell or barbell thrusters. Since you can't (or shouldn't, anyway) actually throw the dumbells in the air,...

Re: Fight Gone Bad/MMA/Need advice

Read the faqs. They provide subs for those exercises and you'll learn that you're missing the point of CrossFit by doing the same WOD repeatedly. Go read them and YOU tell US what the recommended...

Re: Crossfit Total

5/3/1 uses lower %'s of your 1RM, so you may get good results. The e-book is WELL WORTH THE $20 even if you only read the section entitled "Moving north of vag." I'm starting the program next week...

Re: Just Started "Starting Strength"

Just don't b**** and moan if you stall out early. You won't be able to say "the program didn't work" if you didn't work the program.

Re: 1st Elements Class hit me like a truck 4 non athlete

If it makes you feel any better, I can barely walk up the stairs after my most recent four rounds of: 400m run + 50 squats WOD.

To put it in perspective...I recently hit 415# on my backsquat, so...

Squat: 365 (no resets)
Press: 170 (first failure at 175)
Bench: 245 (no resets)
Deadlift: 425 (no resets)

If you wanna get started with CF, you need to lose that "upper body day" mentality, pronto.

As an LEO, I'll second this. I've NEVER had to run a mile or more during a chase. Usually a few blocks and some fence jumping, then perhaps a struggle to get cuffs on. Interval runs (and rows),...

Re: 18 Years Old. Not sure Where to Start.

Eric, would you agree that more strict that kipping pullups would serve him better for entry into the USMC? I'm thinking strict in metcons until he NEEDS to kip.
