Re: Is this site going to get dumped also?

If people thought FB and IG were a platform to interact with other people they are a bit naive. They made billions by selling all your data not because you clicked like to a kitten picture.

Re: How many peeps still using this message board?

It seemed like after Glassman got total control from his wife the board went dead. The sport is still growing so if people arenít discussing it here, where?

Re: Close Grip Vs Wide Grip

Definitely not for everyone but if they can keep that form with heavier weight I would think itís the way to go. Itís like a wide grip in competitive bench pressing, the shorter range to lock out the...

Re: Reshaping the CrossFit Games from 2019 *****

It just seems like Greg wants a globalization of the sport with National champions taking the lead with the Open just being filler competitors. I just think that dumbs down the sport.

Re: What Do You Eat First Thing In AM?

Coffee and a banana about 6:30am while getting my mind ready for work than something more filling about 9am.

Re: Flat soled training shoes

Vans makes some nice ones but the drawback is they are quite pricey.

Re: Job Opportunity - Frederick Maryland

I was in Frederick one time in '96 for a major softball tournament. The minor league stadium is located across from the cemetary where Francis Scott Key is buried. The Charlie Daniels Band was...

Re: Bumper plate odor

I think it's the chemicals used in making them that causes the smell, natural rubber smells too. I don't know how many you receive in a shipment but a wash with Pine-Sol or Murphys soap and then put...

Re: Best Magazine to subscribe to??

I liked WodTalk but didn't care for The Box as it came across kinda low budget. That one got dumped on me when Musclemag went newsstand only and duped me of a two year subscription.

Re: How much running is too much?

Running should help build your legs and burn body fat but if you want to slow the pace you can just rotate each day, walk one run one. It gives you that personal time alternated with a higher paced...

Re: pull up injury that can't be felt?

Two weeks sounds like a very long time for DOMS symptoms and have never dealt with Rhabdo personally but I would definitely have a doctor look into it. You may be saying your work keeps you fit but...

Re: The L4/L5 bulging disc club

I've never heard of a disc dissolving itself. If it's a small herniation PT will go along way to move it back in as long as you keep up with exercises to keep your core strong. When it gets to a...

Crossfit bars and plates in Central Jersey?

I'm looking to set up a small Crossfit gym at home. I've been mostly doing kettle bell and sandbag work but want to get a decent bar and bumper plates but most of the equipment dealers that I use to...

Re: Lower back issue

I'm definitely not a doctor but sounds like a muscle pull. No pain no gain is no way to go with a back issue so I would rest and monitor it. If it is not improving after a few days have a doctor look...

Re: Lower back issue

Does the pain radiate away from the injured area, say down the leg, or just where you felt the pull?

Re: Blood pressure over 140

Maybe it was just the visit to the doctors or just general stress you had that day. Get yourself a tester and check yourself at different times related to working out, your job and after eating. ...

Re: Lower Back Pain

I'm not a doctor but if your pain is traveling down your leg it seems to be a disc pressing on the nerve which affects the sciatic nerve running the length of your leg. Everyone has some degree of...

Re: New box and mirrors

I would ask the property owner first since you are leasing and if they don't have an issue removing them do so. Painting isn't hard and let's you give the place the look and identity you want....

Re: Severe Ab Cramps when doing ab exercises

Re: 20 rep squats

I had an issue of MuscleMag from the early 80's that had a bunch of different squat programs. They might have been from Strossen but can't remember. One 20 rep program would have you do 10 squats and...

Re: Will Deadlifts NECESSARILY Cause Further Damage to Herniated Discs

Re: How thorough is the crossfit games drug testing? Surely some athletes are doping

Their site says it applies to registered athletes. What entails being a registered athlete, you register for an event? just wondering how people are pooled into off season testing.

Re: Knee crepitus anyone?

I had it 20 years ago and it use to occur when I squatted but it hasn't occurred in years. What caused it to go away I couldn't say.
