Re: Seeds

Don't forget quinoa. Also a seed, a delicious, nutrient dense seed.

Re: Diet and Cancer Study

So my 24 oz/day topped with 9 tbsp of fat would probably make me quite the outlier. At least I'll make a good looking corpse.

Re: "Toughest" WOD?

Strangely, Lynne is the toughest for me.

(tongue firmly in cheek, these are all tough workouts)...
Linda, no problem. As a recovering powerlifter I'm built for her.

Re: Murph Challenge: times

Strong work, how were the reps partitioned, and which exercise would you consider limiting?

I pr'd recently with 10 x 10/20/30, and it was the damn pushups that slowed me down.

Re: 1000lbs club CrossFit Total

I'm glad this thread got bumped. I've cut ~30# of BW since my August report (215 now vs 245 then) but only ended up losing 14# from my total:

BS - 429 (+10)
SP - 195 (-14)
DL - 461 (-10)

BW ratio...

Re: Somewhat serious fashion/gym question

A cut off shirt sleeve is ideal for this application.

The hole in the top allows ventilation, the material is wide enough to absord quite a bit of liquid, and I've never seen one on a gang banger,...

Re: increase box height

Well played. But if you decide you need something mid-way standard cinder blocks are 8" tall. I made an 18" bench that I jump up on when a 20" is called for in the WOD. I put it on on blocks...

Have you mastered the art of resetting your grip "mid-flight"? This was the final link for me when I was pushing for 20+.

When I was eating zone (20 blocks/5 meals/every 3 hrs) my performance was entirely dependent on the timing of my most recent meal. If I went too soon I was too full for optimal performance. If I...

Re: Age of Crossfitters

I'm 39, will be 40 in March.

And so as not to blow the curve, my 18 y/o son Vincent is also an avid Crossfitter though he rarely visits the discussion boards now that he's off at college.

Re: Possibly the OPPOSITE of The Zone Diet?!

They had me up to the pancake. I mean seriously, who wants a blueberry pancake on their taco/egg crepe/pizza wrap. That would totally ruin it.

On the bright side though, I know what my cheat meal...

Re: ME + High Reps = ?

Let me offer a dissenting data point.

I routinely follow up all my ME work with a tabata cycle of the same or a similar lift, i.e. DL ME followed by 225# tabata DL or 55# dumbelll swings, shoulder...

I put on a solid 25# in my first 2-3 months on CF. Much of that, however, I attribute to improved diet.

I felt uncomfortably large at 250# though and took steps to drop some muscle. Now I stay...
