Re: Gluten Free Beer

Most gluten-free beers are pretty bad, sadly. Especially if it's the flavor of good beers that you like.

Wine, yes, has the iso-flavonoids that are great stuff for the body generally ... but then...

Re: alcohol... damage?

I notice a definite difference in my workouts when I'm cutting back to having a beer or two only on nights where I won't be in the gym the next day as opposed to the usual routine of a beer a night...

Re: Hybrid Program Heavy Metcons

As an example, I set up my program with the Novice schedule, 4 days a week. I then took the handy listing of metcons, pored over it for a while, pulled out ~45 that involved things I could do or had...

Re: Just finished Good Calories, Bad Calories

I powered through the book last summer, after watching the Berkeley lecture video.

Not the easiest read, but worth every bit of effort it took. Deadlifting is hard, too, but also worth it. And in...

Re: SS PP warmup

When I was doing SS, I usually hit an elliptical machine for 5 minutes or so to get warm, then some shoulder/arm mobility stuff, a few sets of walking lunges, a few air squats, then on to gradual...

Re: New WOD Recording Tool Just Launched/Beyond the Whiteboard (threads merged)

This is way, way cool.

Aside from the WOD-logging, which is sweet, the design/interface stuff is fantastic!

Re: Relative importance of caloric surplus and carb intake as a control of bodyweight

Taubes' supposition (which I happen to buy into) is that the fats will trigger feelings of satiety sooner than carbs, which results in eating less of them over time (even if fats are more calorically...

Re: CrossFit New Hampshire

Hell, I grew up in CA, what do I know? If something's going on in Nashua/Manchester, though, that just means I'll have to weasel my way down at some point.
