Re: Gillian Mounsey Article

Mark, of course data collected on forums is not going to give us a good scientific analysis of rates of rhabdo across a population as a whole. However, they do tell us that rhabdo happens more...

Re: Gillian Mounsey Article

Which you'd think Crossfit would do, especially after the Mimms lawsuit . . . But I suppose that's the advantage of not being a franchise or keeping track of patterns of injuries. Plausible...

Jim, perhaps you would like some evidence. Have yourself a look-see through this thread (http://www.performancemenu.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5888). You can start near the back if you want the...

Re: Gillian Mounsey Article

So doing things that directly oppose how Greg Glassman suggests people work out (focusing specifically on weaknesses, periodizing, not randomizing things) is now "Advanced Crossfit"?

Re: Gillian Mounsey Article

High-rep box jumps are programmed regularly on the main page outside of the Games. And are you saying Crossfit HQ has no responsibility to program workouts that take into account that there are...

Re: Gillian Mounsey Article

Multiple people popped their Achilles doing one of the high-rep box jump workouts of the Open. They were doing a workout Crossfit HQ chose--is that outside the boundaries of Crossfit? Achilles...

Re: Gillian Mounsey Article

This is telling me nothing about your squat, bench, deadlift, C&J, snatch, log press, stone loading before and after Crossfit . . . It tells me nothing about your programming before and after...

Rhabdo and Achilles tears are not normal. Those are crazy freak injuries that are so rare I'd say most people didn't even know they could happen . . . before they became a serious issue in Crossfit....

Re: Gillian Mounsey Article

I got into strength-and-conditioning through Crossfit. Probably like a lot of people here.

When I started, I didn't know crap about S&C. I didn't know crap about good form, or proper programming. ...

Re: Gillian Mounsey

I was pretty disgusted with the body image aspects--the encouragement for her to drop muscle and bodyweight so she didn't look "big" and was more presentable as a Crossfit Girl.

To me that is the...

Re: Muslim weightlifter's wish to wear modest clothing triggers rules debate

Did you look at the disparities between totals in any of the other weight classes? Or the men's classes for that matter? That kind of disparity is not so uncommon, especially since women's...

Re: I want to dive deeper into olympic lifting.

I'd definitely buy Greg Everett's Olympic weightlifting book (should be on Catalyst), read through it, and follow his beginner's programs. I've heard excellent things about it from many people.

What are you implying? Rhabdomyolysis has enough of a different mechanism in action when not exercise-induced as to invalidate the study? Or that animal models aren't appropriate? Because the...

Re: Uncle Rhabdo Shirt

Dude, rhabdo leaves permanent kidney scarring. If you've had rhabdo, you have kidney scarring. God help you if you've had multiple cases, that's going to make it even worse.

Re: Should my kipping Pullups help my "strict pullups"?

And my understanding is the gymnast's kipping pull-up is about as different from the CF kipping pull-up as the gymnast's muscle-up is from the CF muscle-up. They're a heck of a lot more controlled...

People still quote Greg Glassman like the things he says are actually applicable to successful training?

Re: 161kg snatch at 94kg by Jon North

I had a question about his technique. It looks like to me that Jon leads his first pull with his hips (shoots them up) rather than keeping an even back angle from floor to knees. ...
