Re: Crossfit Open 2016

If there was one thing I disliked about Regional coverage it was the mess (sorry, but I have no other way to say it) they did with nationalities. Maybe a European problem. I mean, how can you comment...

Re: Rounded back during deadlifts?

Well, there is the rule of thumb that men can start to think about rounding their upper back once they have a 600 lbs (275 kg) neutral spine DL (I think Chris could go a little deeper into this PL...

Re: Not training the snatch?

I would like to add that even among high level oly lifters the power snatch is rarely lower than 80-85 % of the full squat snatch (and that is for the most proficient athletes). That said, a 160 kg...

Re: full body rehabilitation program?

Well, looking through some of your old posts, I have to admit I am not surprised. How did your actual schedule look like?

However, I think there is something good about it. You went all the way to...

Re: Weightlifting strength help please

One thing I would like to add here is the question about recovery, which from my point of view is the key to improvements. You do not get better by working out hard, you get better by recovering from...

Re: crossfit exercises that could be done alongside an Olympic lifting program?

Depends a bit on how high the volume of the Oly program is. E. g. I use gymnastics as my main core training exercises (at the end of each Oly workout). If your Oly program calls for certain movements...

Re: Should I stick to 3 days on smolov instead of 4?

Why do not just wait until the Open is over before starting a new cycle? It's just three weeks left.

CFFB and CFWL are both "hybrid" programs, meaning both are more strength orientated than most other CF programs. Other than that, they are really not the same; just like few football players look...

Re: I'm back to square one with my WODs thanks Wendler System and stupid me!!!!

At your age, recovery will be key. Try to get good sleep and good food. Maybe reduce your total volume. As said before, combine a strength program with short conditioning sessions. Or use a program...

Re: Heavy deadlift reps, TnG or no TnG?

TnG is possible on Deadlifts if

Re: high frequency Powerlifting/upping volume

Did you ever considered Sheiko? I think that one is pretty volume orientated, though I admit I never really worked into it. I am competing in Oly Lifting, but sometimes it is nice to see what PL do.

Re: Good flat sole shoe for heel strikers

Personal opinion here: this shoe does not exist. Heel striking is only possible if your shoe has a sole that safes your knee. However, that means the sole has to be pretty big. This shoe therefore...

Re: My latest article - PML for Optimized Recovery

Few questions here:

What was your 1RM Bench Press at the time you injured your pec? Just to get an idea how much weight you used relative to your 1RM. If 95 lbs was too much for you, I assume most...

Re: Shoulder placement (Deadlift, Clean, Snatch)

Your question is pretty much about the difference between the setups for a Deadlift and for a Clean. Yes, there is a difference.
For a Deadlift, you can allow your shoulders to be a little bit...

Re: The Strength Base Linear Progression

I will support Russ here. This is for two reasons:

In a CrossFit competition, it does not matter how many events you win/do very well. It matters how bad you finish in the rest.

Re: Squat replacements

Sounds like a really terrible problem. Not sure what it is, so whatever I say, check with your docs first.

Romanian Deads is something you want to avoid. It is going to compress the spine.

Re: Books on The Mental Aspect of Sport

Though not directly aimed at sports, I will say Musashi's "Go Rin No Sho" (The Book of Five Rings) is a must read.
