Re: Crossfit Shanghai

I'm here! I will be back in the States early October, but I will be sure to look you up. Most likely will be at California Fitness.

I am looking forward to having some crossfitters in town :)

Re: Meal Planning while in the Orient

@Daniel, I found a grimy gym that is really only locals in Zhongshan Park. If you walk in the south (main) entrance and turn left (past the carnival rides), its straight ahead. They have a squat...

Re: Overhead Squat help :)

Can you provide a little more info...

How flexable are your hamstrings?
Are your hips below your knees at the bottom or a regular squat?
Have you done shoulder dislocates?

Re: cleans

Re: Pose running?
