Re: How is stretching supposed to feel?

If you are in Chinese Gymnastic progam and you are 5 years old, it should feel like pain. So pray to Mao. If you are an adult, pain will lead to injuries.

Re: does anyone else's lats get sore after high rep burpees?

Normal Burpees-no. I did this variation when my legs would shoot back a foot or so further back. That day I had sore lats. Maybe you did that without thinking about it.

Re: Body weight Crossfit

Beast skills kind of slowed down. Bodyweightculture is still going strong.
Dumbells and bodyweight is more then you need for any kind of workout.

That depends on your energy level, food intake, and zest for life. lol

Re: OverHead Press and Blood Restriction?

I think that it should be the opposite. You are upside down, so there is more blood flowing to your head. I usually get red face after hand stand push ups.

Re: Capoeira style squat, bad for knees?

If you have bad knees, you may mess them up. On the other hand if you have strong flexible knees, I don't it will be a problem.
