Re: Couple of weight belts I'm looking at getting

I didn't realize there was a differnce. I talked with Dean Best (get it? Dean Best - BestBelts!) extensively both via email and phone before ordering. Since I have so little experience with belts...

Re: Max Army APFT

Well, I can't really speak for the Army ... but I will anyway. I've been in about 10 years and seen my share of units, I'd say the same is true for us. Nobody wants to do full range of motion...

Re: Fitness tracking so easy a paleo man could do it

Agreed - I've been using withfit for a few weeks now, and as I get more and more workouts entered, I find it both easier and even more useful! I'm doing CFSB and can track my progress over time,...

Re: FIT AS FU*K CrossFit Challenge 25 SEPT 2010, Copenhagen, Denmark

Agreed about the name. Not the kind of thing I can see bringing my family to. I think the whole idea sounds like fun, but I also think that from a 'marketing' point of view you'd get more...

Re: "GHD" Situps via Bosu Ball

I've done them on a ball before, feet on the floor hooked under something, with full range of motion (floor to floor).

It gave me the worst case of GHD "growing pains" I've ever had. I was so sore...

Re: Amazing opportunity! But need some big brain help, and FAST!...

Funny you should ask. Today we started our repeat of the benchmarks, did the APFT this morning. I am trying to get the data so I can do a comparison. I fear it will be a woefully small test group,...

Re: Max Army APFT

Agreed - this was the key to me finally maxxing my pushups on the APFT. Two weeks before the APFT, I started doing GTG (grease the groove) Mon thru Fri, I tried for 6-8 sets per day. Easily maxxed...

Re: Elite FTS Economy belt reviews

Well, I am in the process of getting my first belt, so that should give you an idea of my level of belt experience.

However, the guy helping me get a belt (he has tremendous experience) recommended...

Re: CFSB - Ask your questions here!

Okay, so I'm on week 2 of CFSB and loving it, but I have a question:

If I PR on a ME set, do I skip the high rep (HR) set or do it, too? Yesterday I did my ME FS 3x5. My first work set was 185 (my...

Re: Fitness tracking so easy a paleo man could do it

Is there a way to "share" your workouts and progress? I thought maybe if we could look at each others' workouts and see how other people are logging stuff and using this tool, we might learn from...

Re: Fitness tracking so easy a paleo man could do it

Judd, the way I've done it so far (only been playing with it for a day now) is to set up each segment as it's own workout, so multiple "workouts" on a single day. That allows me to do some for...

Re: Fitness tracking so easy a paleo man could do it

Jeremy, I just logged in and entered a workout. I think I'm going to like it. A couple initial thoughts:

Re: No one cares about your abs

Man, I sure am enjoying this thread. It's almost like a CrossFit soap opera.



Yeah, once upon a time (about 7 or 8 years ago), I had those. My wife called them 'hip divots' and loved them. I...

Re: paleo "change your life in 30 days"

Ed, I didn't get that experience. I almost got the opposite - I became much more aware of what was going on with my body. I would just eat when my body told me it was time, which usually happened...
