Re: Oly Lifting Straps

Or you can make yourself a pair using some 1" webbing you can get from REI. It cost me about $3+tax and they work great.

Re: Best weightlifting shoe for CF

Thanks for all the info everyone. I think I'll wait to see the new Reeboks when they are released.

Re: Does anyone utilize ice baths for recovery?

I've really been considering trying it, but there are two things holding me up. 1) jocks on the rocks. need I say more? 2) unless you have access to an ice machine the cost for the ice could get...

Re: Hailing the row-guru's

When I rowed in college we did a lot of 500m-1000m sprints, 10,000m duration pieces, and 20 min intervals of 1 min on/1 off. We also did a ton of stairs. First every step, then every 2 steps, then...

Re: need to row!

Long time rower here. For me holding a pace of 20 spm (strokes per minute) I get 12-15m per stroke. If I go to 30 spm I get about 8-10m per stroke. Make sure you are doing it right. Watch some of the...

Individualized programming

I've read quite frequently here that a box should be able to put together an individualized program for you. I do agree, sort of, which leads to my question. Is this service extra (over and above...

Re: Buying used: Bumper plates?

Make sure they are plates designed to go on REAL bars rather than those screw on end bars that only have a hole of like 1".

Re: Current take on Groupon/LivingSocial etc.

As a former regular grouponer I can assure you that 90%+ of the grouponers out there only use/buy the goods/services because they are at a discount. These are people who make a game out of seeing how...

Re: tuff mudder

No problem. The race is actually a lot of fun. They do go a little over the top with the "don't forget you signed a death waiver" signs everywhere. Yes, it is the hardest thing 80-90% of the...

Re: tuff mudder

I didn't do any long slow distance for my prep. I think the furthest I ran was maybe 6 miles. One thing I would HIGHLY recommend is get used to getting in and out of ice water. Go to walmart/target...

Re: CF Games 2011 General Thread

Absolutely not. I wasn't able to watch every competitor throughout the day, but I'd say less than 5% of what I saw would have counted. Elbow locks are horrible.

Re: driving or pressin in the jerk

You should be able to drive the bar to at least eye level with your legs. One thing I used to do is just practice driving to eye/top of head level. You shouldn't even feel it in your arms. Your...

Re: Can I compete?

Since you've yet to list your lifts I'm going to make the broad statement of "you've likely got a lot of work to do". Making regionals and top 20 in regionals are completely different. As the...

Re: Regionals athlete trying to lean out

I'm sure I'm going to be in the minority here, but the only time I had a 6 pack was when I was doing cardio for 3 hrs/day. During high school I lifted for about 6 hrs/day x 5 days/wk and I was big...

Re: Making Stones

250 lbs of wet concrete will net you nearly 250 lbs of dry concrete. If mixed in the proper proportions, concrete only has enough water added to hydrate the portland cement. The hydration of the...

Re: Clean and Jerk Form Critique

Few things. As Shawn mentioned you are raising your butt faster than the bar. As Tamara said, your split isn't wide enough and you aren't committing. The only way to know you are fully committing...

Re: Garage Crossfit Gym

I rowed in college and during the winter no teams are allowed to row on the water. You end up rowing on the erg in the boathouse a lot which are nearly all unheated. Heated storage is unnecessary,...

What you're experiencing is normal. However, I would still encourage you to go tonight. I'd arrive a little early to talk to the coach about soreness/stiffness. They should be able to recommend...
