Here's Ryan Fischer's instagram post:

His text message doesn't specifically say, "OC Throwdown," only that he is "competing again all day." The...

A little more transparency with CrossFit drug testing:

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

I've read that PED users only fail a drug test if you're stupid, that it's an IQ test, not a drug test.

I've also read and seen videos that CrossFit drug testing has an overnight notice that the...

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

Interesting. I didn't know that. Now there is an objective piece of information that relates to both appearance and PED use.

Still, if someone skips leg day, couldn't they acheive a top heavy...

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

It's my opinion that appearance is a poor indicator of PED use. A fit appearance can be achieved by PED use or good nutrition and intense exercise. You can't conclude that every woman that looks a...

This is a better conversation, the one I was hoping to have when I first called you out.

But then...



You continue to debate appearance factors. Which is why I agreed more with your first...

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

I take issue with the part of the debate that centers on a woman's appearance, which is why I linked Greg Glassman's video. He talks about her ability and what she can do, and that's what makes her...

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

It's fascinating how the human mind can hold two conflicting ideas simultaneously. My opinion favors your first sentence.

What is it about a woman with a well developed musculo-skeletal system...

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

The US has an issue with supplement quality. Supplements do not have FDA oversight anywhere near food and medications. It's difficult to know if you're really getting what you think you're getting....

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

Either he's taken years to gradually build up (carefully with good form) to that workload, or he's using PEDs to improve recovery. It's unknown. The best information we currently have is that he...

Armstrong failed a retest. Samples are saved, and some samples were retested and failed due to advances in testing methods.
