Re: 5/3/1 and Metcons

Just scroll down the page a bit to where it says MUST PURCHASE BELOW and add to cart from there. I don't know why they have it set up that way, but once you do that, everything seems to go normally.

Re: 3 days a week?

Re: squat every day?

Corey,

If you are looking at just doing moderate weight back squats some days along with a regular lifting program, I don't see any problem with that. Listen to your body and adjust the volume...

Re: Hey Now! Deadhead CrossFitters!

Hi!

Count me in as a Deadhead CrossFitter, although I have not seen a show since I caught Phil and Friends maybe 5 or 6 years ago. I love the Grateful Dead station on XM.

Re: Wanted... Team Workouts?

Those are all good ideas, and I have used that "pace horse" template for a lot of things.

Re: which rack?

FWIW, I used to have the Promaxima rack that Seth mentions. It is a good piece of equipment for the price. I have also bought stuff from Christian - always had good luck.

Have fun shopping!
