Re: Hip Flexibility

You are about the same age I was when I noticed similar symtoms. I went to the doc and found out I was developing arthritis. Mostly damage from skiing and distance running. You might check with...

Re: Stretching?

Yes! I hope I did not come across as criticising Kelly and his material. Just thought a person interested in stretching could benefit from a good book to add to the library. I know I like to buy...

When I first posted my new years resolutions progress check I thought I might continue each month so as to log progress, or lack there of. This is the second installment.

1) Strict Zone diet. This...

Re: Stretching?

I just recently started paying attention to the Kelly Star material. Folks, this is not new stuff. Yes, I think he is right-on. However, If you want a very good reference that both sums up what to...

Re: Progress check on new years resolutions

Ok, got some pictures. I still am not sure the best way to upload.

How do people include pictures in the message text instead of as attachments?

Re: Progress check on new years resolutions

I think the time has come for just that. Our Xfit class did muscle ups today -working the progessions and the subs. I was planning a rest day. Just planned to work on double unders and handstands...

I don't have any. I will run this by the wife. She is the camera person in the household. I suspect a cool reception.

Progress check on new years resolutions

I had a number of new years resolutions this year. Seems like a good time to check progress, proclaim successes, and analyze failures.

1) Strict Zone diet. This has been a real winner. At...

Re: Dunk Quest

So do you want to sky out on a layup?, or on a jump shot? Dunking is pretty much the layup or single leg jump. Jump shots the other. I would suggest that both are needed. Also, I tried to...

Re: Dunk Quest

Joe,

Just one more thought. I think the most valuable training drill we did was something the coach referred to as minute drills. Divide the team in two. Half the team starts on the court...

Re: Dunk Quest

Joe,

Just ran across another thread that suggested vertical jump is largely untrainable. Been thinking about that some lately. I think it is true that sprinters are born - not made. Same may be...

Re: Meniscus tear and Crossfit?

I have had meniscus tears in both knees repaired. I think about 30 a percent tear in one and 70 percent in the other. It has been a few years since surgery and I have no knee pain at all. My...

Re: Request Pull-up assistance/guidance

My progress on pullups has been slower than I like as well. So I can't offer much help. I am 6'6" and 235 (been losing a little). I can presently do 13 dead hang pullups. I got here by starting...

Re: Questions to all who have done Starting Strength+GOMAD

I was regaining some strength, adding some new. Don't really have any way to sort which was which. The restrictions the doc placed on my workouts meant that the starting weights reported were...

POSE running question

Hope this is an appropriate place for this. I gave up running over 10 years ago. Too many hip and knee issues. My Xfit instructor suggested I look into POSE running. I did. My wife (a former...

Re: Best book on stretching?

Yet another vote for Kurz

I loaned out my copy and never got it back -too bad. Also had his video. He is the only author I am aware of that covers all the proven methods. If you are in a hurry,...

Re: Questions to all who have done Starting Strength+GOMAD

1. How long did you do SS?

About 3 months for the stats that follow

2. How much weight did you gain?

None. I did not drink the milk - so technically, it was not SS. Followed the rest pretty...

You haven't mentioned the issues that might affect the way you go about this? Might strongly affect the kind of advice you get.

My approach to the problem seems to be working reasonably well. The...

Re: What's the Evidence that Kipping Pullups Makes you Better at Deadhangs?

I am somewhat new to a lot of this, but that is my approach. I do dead hang pullups till stuck, then kip for several more. If a WOD calls for a lot of pullups, its kip. If I can manage it dead...

Re: Slightly knackered knees
