Re: Body Fat WOD

My biggest problem with your reasoning is the implied suggestion that a lower body fat percentage is inherently better for you. At 13% body fat -- maybe 5-7% points lower than I am now-- I was a lot...

Re: NPFL

Well, I hope it lasts because, ironically, it'd be one of the very few "sports" I actually enjoy watching. I mean, many sports sound odd when described as a spectator activity. I don't understand...

Re: 14.5???

As much as I desperately want it to be not burpees and thrusters, I'm a little dubious of the HSPU predictions. I don't remember seeing those in the judge's course, and I feel like they would've gone...

Re: 14.5???

I know they incorporated the rower as a new element this year, but I really think running is unlikely because it would make videotaping far more difficult.

Re: ********?

Advo-cates have recently appeared at my gym as well. They're lovely people and dedicated athletes, but I can't wrap my mind around their passionate devotion to these products. I looked at the...

Re: 14.4 Tips and strategies

A guy at my gym did 14.4 tonight (for reference, he's really short-- 5'3", so rowing is not his forte). He finished 60kcal at 826m at a 1:48 pace.

Re: Pre-Workout

I'm a pretty big fan of Honey Badger (http://drinkhoneybadger.com/) WFS. I wanted something with Beta-Alanine. The ingredients are pretty simple/clean, and it's the right amount of caffeine that it...

Re: 14.3 funny thinking about it

Same here. I PR'd my deadlift a couple days ago, and have to complete 14.3 this morning before I leave town. I'm encouraging all the athletes at my box to slow it down. Most of us won't be on the...

Re: 14.3 funny thinking about it

I'm curious if anyone has any insight as to why they chose to disallow a sumo stance. I thought it was even included in the judge's course as a valid deadlift?

Re: chest to bar pullups??

have you tried pulling with a chin-up grip? I have to kip hard to get my chest to touch with an overhand grip, but I can rep them out strict with a chin-up grip.

Switching up your pull-up training...

Re: What almond butter brand?

I think a food processor is a decent investment if you intend to make a lot of nut butters (which I do). It's also useful for things like hummus, pureed vegetables and root vegetables, etc. But when...

Re: Any guesses on 14.2

I'd really enjoy that WOD. Wouldn't be able to keep up with the big girls once the OHS got heavy, but it'd give me a good workout and I'm the twisted type that things burpees are fun.

Re: crazy cravings on rest days

My metabolism also seems to rev up on my rest days. Rest days exist so that your body can repair all the damage you do to it in training. That process of repair builds muscle. My best guess is that...

Videotaping and Qualifying for Regionals

Hi all,
There are very few (possibly none) individuals at our box that aspire to compete at Regionals this year. However, we did send a team to the Mid-Atlantic Regional competition last year and...

Re: Judges Course

The videos are a bit of a pain, but overall I thought they were a lot less fuzzy than last year's. I'm wondering if anyone else noted changes in movement standards from last year? I think the box...

Inov 8 Powerheel

Apparently Inov8 has created a strap-on heel so that you can convert your Inov 8's into squat shoes. I wonder if anyone's tried them and if...

Chris-- I did, and I saved it for future reference. Thanks, though, it really is a fantastic breakdown.

Thanks Brendan. I've been training at odd hours lately, so it's been difficult to find a spotter, but I'll try that when I finally return to my home gym. Today, I tried what I think might be a more...

Re: 130 lb female in need of nutrition advice

Potatoes, rice, plantains and chestnuts for me. I love beans, but my digestive system does not agree.

Re: Handstand push-up/handstand walks

Brendan: do you recommend any particular gyms in Phoenix? That's where I grew up and I'll be back in the Phoenix/Chandler/Tempe area for a few weeks around the holidays.
