Evidence that protein slows carb absorption?

I know this is how the Zone is supposed to work, but is there scientific evidence for it?

Sitting on a swiss ball

Is it good to sit on a swiss ball at work?

I would prefer to stand but it's not an option.

Re: regionals and games will be redundant?

Nah Spealler is still not strong enough, even with Oly lifts for his weight class that are nearly competitive at the national level.

Re: Simplified mobility WOD?

Thanks, the no-nonsense mobility videos are a great contribution. Have you told KStar about them? He might want to put up a link.

What I ended up doing is going through the first 14 days of the...

Re: add strength to mainsite wod?

For several months I followed mainsite and did a 5RM, 3RM, or 1RM of squat, deadlift, press, clean and jerk or snatch before each workout.

So I would do:
Squat 5RM, WOD
Press 5RM, WOD
Deadlift 5RM,...

Starting Strength success

Just wanted to share!

Tonight I hit a 315 lb back squat (high bar), a 175 lb press, and a 425 lb deadlift. I also did a 400x5 deadlift.

This is a goal I've been working toward for a long time! I...

Re: New to CF - Starting Strength

The BEST thing you can do for yourself right now is to get strong on the basic lifts. Depending on diet/sleep (tough when you're deployed I know), you can get very strong, very quickly on Starting...

Simplified mobility WOD?

K Starr's mobility WOD ( (link WFS) is amazing, but it's still a little inconvenient for me, since it takes 5-10 minutes just to watch the video, before I can start...

Re: Any main pagers left?

So, your point is that one can get good at Crossfit by focusing on each aspect by itself, and developing each through more traditional means. There are so many things in Crossfit that this would be...

Re: Any main pagers left?

I think working on snatch and 800m intervals by themselves will yield benefits, but it's demonstrably untrue that having a huge snatch and a fast 800m time will translate directly into dominance of a...

Re: Any main pagers left?

I've followed the main site, for the most part, for the past three years. I started from a fairly low level of fitness, despite being a Marine infantry officer. I could run and do pullups, but...

Re: Have I Exhausted Genetics in Linear Progression?

I have been doing Starting Strength for the past four weeks, and my numbers are all somewhat higher than yours (except for bench). I am still gaining on my squat at 15# per week, my deadlift at 10#...

Re: Crossfit for a skinny guy?

My recommendation based on personal experience:

Forget Crossfit for the moment and do Starting Strength with GOMAD for six months. I have found it difficult to gain strength and size with main site...

Annie and Sven Documentary

I came across this 1 hour documentary about Annie and Sven (the Icelanders), their training and their performance in the 2009 Crossfit Games. (Work, family safe)

Re: 4 Hour Body incorporated into routines?

The book is definitely worth buying. It covers a huge amount of territory. It's largely accurate, and contradicts a lot of conventional wisdom regarding the body. The diet and workout portions...

Re: Anything for DOMS?

The one thing that has helped me the most is fish oil. I used to take 9g per day, and now take 4.5g per day.

Of course, this is besides the standard sleep/foam rolling/massage/stretching, all of...

Back Extensions at 45 Degrees

So most globo gyms have a back extension device that holds your legs at a 45 degree angle to the ground, instead of parallel to the ground like an actual GHD machine. Any ideas on the work conversion...

Re: Concerned what effect the 2010 programming will have on future competitors :(

The 2008 and 2009 Games contributed to two years of Strength Bias, MEBB, and Crossfit Football popularity. Everyone wanted to get strong. I hope the 2010 Games spawns a year of Gymnastics Bias. I...

Re: When are your strength days?

Every WOD day. I rotate through squat, press, deadlift, squat clean and jerk, and squat snatch, and do either a 1RM, 3RM or 5RM. So a new 1RM for a particular movement comes up every 18 days. I...
