Re: dropping the fat after SS

I don't see how eating paleo 90% could NOT jield results unless your over eating, have you thought of looking into other areas of your life as possible causes for that stubborn last bit of fat?

Re: Qustion

She's wrong because one of the best features of crossfit is that you record your time, weight, reps whatever it may be and try to beat your record next time around. This way you'll never "get used to...

Re: Optimum body composition for humans?

I think a big part of it is what kind of training you used to attain a certain size. I mean there's a lot of cases where athlete 1 who's the same height/size/bf# as athlete 2; yet althete two is...
