Re: 15 grams a day of fish oil

Is it 15g of fish oil or 15g of omega-3? Because depending on the quality of the supplement there is a dramatic difference. 15g of cod liver oil could be only 3g omega-3 while 15g of purified oil...

Re: Crossfitting for Athletics

Hey Owen,

In what range are your 400 times right now? Like Darell said, I too am jealous you discovered CrossFit at such a young age!

CrossFit is good for you in the off-season but you need track...

Re: Attn Crossfit trainers! Do you do the WOD's?

I've done the WOD almost every day for the last two years. At my gym we follow the main-site WOD, scaled down as appropriate.

Re: SS Squats + Hip pain. What to do.

You need to work on keeping your weight on your heels. Try lifting your toes off the floor throughout the entire squat, that usually fixes it.

Re: Overhead Press Form Check

Doug, I'd love to. I think there are certain equipment requirements and perhaps sq footage requirements that we do not meet at this point. As we outgrow this building and move into another --...

Re: Sears munches pasta

That's too bad. The opportunity for huge profits must have finally worn down his conscience. :(

I wonder if he makes the argument to himself that at least this is better than what many Americans...

Re: Will I ever be able to clean or should I just give up?

Vic, I just wanted to say not to give up. We've had a few guys start where you are thinking they'll never be able to rack. 2-4 weeks later their flexibility improved to the point where it was...

What color are your walls?
