Re: Has anyone lost a significant amount of weight?

I started CrossFit at around 298 lbs. After about 6 months I was in the 230's. I lightened up on the Metcon's and started a strict strength program that my CrossFit Coach wrote. I put back on 35 lbs...

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Is there any other legitimate sport out there that does this? I can't think of one.

Re: Oly lifting shoes?

I bought a pair of Risto's about 2 years ago. The only issue I had with them is the shoelace rings pulling out but I also tend to tie my shoes ridiculously tight. Other than that, they are rock...

Re: Lifting Belt

I purchased a Spud belt (the 4" wide) and in about 3 months the velcro started getting really frayed and pulling apart. It also didn't stay very straight due to the ring and velcro attachment. I...

Use half a scoop of Optimum Nutrition's Cake Batter Whey Protein (yes, they sell it, check Amazon). Significantly cheaper in cost, better in quality, same taste, even less calories with more protein,...

Re: Oly lifting shoes

I bought the Risto's about 8 months ago as they were having a good deal on them. I really like them. Very heavy shoe though. Also, the metal rings on the laces started to come loose pretty quickly.

Re: 2 Days after First Class, Inner Elbow Soreness

When you say inner elbow do you mean in the crease of your elbow or on the inside, "bony" part? If it's in the crease it could very well be the long bicep head connections that are sore (they run...

Re: 2 Days after First Class, Inner Elbow Soreness

I had a lot of issues with my elbows when I first started working out (CrossFit and just weightlifting in general). Turns out it was tendinitis in both elbows (outer on the right, inner on the left)....

Re: At what point are lifting shoes a good investment?

I purchased the Risto Sports Linea Blanca and I love them. Other than taking forever to get them (backordered), they are incredible. You won't regret getting yourself any pair of Oly shoes. We've got...

Re: SPUN Performance Socks

I've been wearing my SPUN socks and shorts just about every day during a workout. Real quality gear and definitely worth the price. I'll be ordering more gear in the next month or so.

Any plans...

Re: New compression sock review.

The socks are incredible. Once I get a few more pair, I'll probably wear them every day.

Thumbs up Re: Compression Gear

Received my Spun gear yesterday (short sleeve shirt, shorts and socks).

The material is very similar to the Skins A400 gear. It may even be the exact same material, I didn't check though. They...

Re: My first day...

It was the same with me. I started at around 298 lbs and after 3-4 months, I was flirting with the 220-230 mark (as well as Rx'ing everything).

Keep coming back and you will see results! Good luck...

Re: Clydesdale Men: Represent!

It was the same for me with 12.2. Hit 60 with about 2 minutes left, nowhere even close to being gassed or fatigued but couldn't get under the bar. Definitely a lot more technique work in my near...

Re: Best App for tracking WODs?

I use myWOD. Has the majority of the named workouts in there, a place for max weights and a decent timer. You can also add custom WoD's and weightlifting easily. It's for the IPhone.

Re: New and struggling with overhead squat

Start with a PVC pipe. Get your form perfect or adding any weight at all will be an exercise in futility. From there move to a training bar, training bar with weights (until you hit the men's bar...
