Re: Did you take a free intro class before signing up at your Affliate?

I got a 20-minute rendition of the basic Glassman spiel (the 10 elements of fitness, constantly-varied-high-intensity-functional-movement, etc). Then did a "Benchmark" workout that consisted of 500K...

Re: Sleep issues

My doc has recently suggested I look into this. Curious as to what your sleep issues/symptoms were. Also, are you now using a CPAP?

Also, I agree with what several others have said - we all have to...

Re: Should I do the open?

I agree. If an Open WOD were to require, say, muscle-ups - and it's a very safe bit that one of them will - that would be the end point for me because I simply don't have muscle-ups. Aside from...

Re: Movement Standard For Burpees

Not positive but I think that in competition there is a ring or some other item suspended at the six-inch-reach point that you have to touch (not just "the air").

Re: Affiliate Name rules / regulations??

Zack, you mention "no trademarked names." Do you have someone routinely check the federal trademark register to make sure new name ideas haven't been registered as trademarks? If not, PM me and...

Re: Dumb Question - Quad Ache while Driving?

Dumb question, perhaps, but is it really your quads? I ask because for a long time I had discomfort in the hip flexors in my right leg - apparently because I was using them to hold my foot in...

Oh's the mound that's 60-feet-six-inches from home. My bad.

Re: Significance of 21-15-9

I always figured it was like the way the distance between bases got to be 60 feet in baseball. For decades people have rhapsodized about this being the perfect measurement: a sharply hit ground...

Here's a post from a non-CF forum, by a former CF-er who says he liked it but has since turned to other modes of training:

"A serious problem with Crossfit is that it advocates things like high...

And it's basically what another poster said: Rx for Masters Men is same as for the younger women, and Rx for Masters Women is another step down from Masters Men.

Re: Progenex Alternative

Same here. Haven't used ProGenX but have tried some other protein powders and haven't noticed anything conspicuous. Is this something you feel immediately or just sort of "generally over time"?
