Re: Bulging Disc L5-S1

A month post-surgery and the "smashed in the back" feeling has gone away, but holy f**k my nerve isnt happy. The Medrol dose pack has helped, but I'm now feeling pain (due to nerve...

Re: Continued tight muscles with L5/S1 Disc bulge

Thanks for this!

I just had surgery last Monday (they even removed a Tarlov Cyst in there as well) and was wondering what others had in terms of a recovery. I was told 4-6 weeks, but recognize...

Re: Bulging Disc L5-S1

FWIW I felt the "sharp" feeling down one leg doing deadlifts (I honestly thought someone had thrown something at my hamstring) but after 30 seconds it stopped (I also stopped doing deadlifts). I...

Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

When it comes to officiating, the 3Fs principal comes to mind:

Firm, Friendly, Fair, but NOT Familiar.

I get it. The atmosphere is electric, there's a huge buzz going, and this fella in front of...

Re: Compression Gear

They're clearly going fast; I ordered on Thursday AM and it was at #88



I've been wearing Skins for a couple years now, and was looking at something cheaper as well as more versatile. It was also...

Re: How to pick fish oil?

I now put a tsp of the mint flavoured oil in my post-Wod shake each morning. It makes it taste like mint chocolate! Woohoo!

The above link is WFS.

Re: Calf Compression Sleeves

I started using them after I had some serious calf problems during competitive sports, but that was only during games. Then I started using them in WODs, and though I've found no difference in...

Re: Disinfecting equipment - how frequently?

As someone that sweats like a hooker in confession and is often clumsy such that I'll rip my shins on box jumps, I will use a wet-wipe to wipe down my bar, pullup area, KB, box, and even around my...

Re: Just wanted to point out another horribly written Anti Paleo article!!!

This article links to another article by US News (http://health.usnews.com/best-diet/paleo-diet) (WFS), which states the following when asked the question "How much does it cost"



Seriously, come...

Re: Rugby World Cup 2011 Thread

The Aussie commentators were pretty funny, though the only pop at Faletau was about not bringing up the surname count along with the Jones, Thomas', etc. Most of the credit should go to Pocock for...

Powder Packaging

I recently ordered from Progenex, and their protein is packaged in what are essentially zip-locked-type bags (clearly sturdier than a ziplock back, but you get my point).

I had ordered them as I...

Re: Rugby World Cup 2011 Thread

Sorry, I wasnt trying to kick anyone on the forum; the Welsh seem to be up in arms about this decision, but hey that's their national pride.

And no, it was meant to be at the top of the post, but...

Re: Rugby World Cup 2011 Thread

You'll appreciate that in Canada, there was (at one point) a very popular clothing store called Roots. It even sponsored the Winter Olympic Team. My Australian friends would love to get photos under...

Re: Dat Sticks

I've used Climb-On (https://climbonp.accountsupport.com/cgi-bin/cart/agora.cgi?p_id=00002) (WFS) after some folks at the box saw me ripping my hands on a regular basis. I get mine at the local REI...

Re: Train for the Test or for the "Real World"?

Maybe there's a better question: do folks tailor their WoDs to improve scores on the test? Knowing that a fitness test will contain X, are WoDs adjusted to focus and maximize scores on X, or do...

Re: Train for the Test or for the "Real World"?

Far from it; my goal of being one of the few people to move to Houston and get fitter is still successful.

I was interested in how folks approach "testing season" while still doing regular WoDs;...

Re: Train for the Test or for the "Real World"?

Rugby, but of the refereeing variety. Yes, referees in certain sports actually run. Some even have to sprint! Golf, Baseball, and Cricket are not in this category. Rugby, however, is (though I...

Re: Next evolution for CrossFit

Some of the best moments in sports are seeing the "little guys" make fools of the "big guys". Maybe it's the nerd in me, or the cheering for the under-dog, but adding weight classes takes away the...

Train for the Test or for the "Real World"?

Recognizing that I'm not the first person out there that is required to do fitness testing on a regular basis (every 6 months), I'm wondering if there are those out there for whom the tests are,...

RWC 2011 - New Zealand North Island Boxes

I'll be en route from AKL to Wellington from mid-Sept/early-Oct for the Rugby World Cup (as a tourist).

Unfortunately, 3 weeks after getting back, I'm off to the PanAm games (NOT as a tourist). ...
