Re: Compression Gear

I've never used compression clothing, but at these prices I may be willing to give it a shot. I was under the impression that compression garments designed for recovery differed from those designed...

Re: Can't Lose Belly Fat

The one thing I can tell you for sure is that all else equal eating more is NOT going to help you reach your goal. This little bit of crossfit contrarian wisdom is really one of the dumbest things...

Re: Peak for PFT (after sickness)

I really wish this board would get over the LSD hate. LSD causes positive aerobic adaptations that you don't get doing three short CFE workouts per week. Why otherwise would competitive runners all...

Re: How to PR a 5K

You and a lot of other people. Unfortunately, the path to becoming a better runner without running still eludes us, even if some programs promise it's possible. The exception being for novices and...

Re: You must eat this much to play

I'd say it's time to move past the voodoo nutrition advice generally espoused on this messaged board. Eating less is the best way to loose weight.

Re: Shoulder free exercises

This might be one of those times to take advantage of all those expensive machines that fill most gyms. If I couldn't squat or deadlift, I much rather do heavy leg presses, for example, than limit...

Re: Best book or DVD to learn correct form on key basic lifts?

I think the gold standard is still Starting Strength, both the book and the DVD.

Re: vit D supplementation

If you're really serious about tackling the issue, just go get your vitamin d levels tested. You may not even need supplementation. If you do, you'll have a baseline. Start out with a relatively...

Re: A couple questions about weight loss

Mike,

I am doubtful that you can maintain that diet at your weight and with your activity level. But if you can, by all means you should. Contrary to the contrarian wisdom you will get here (eat...

Re: Murph as Swat Team Entry Test

Really? In my experience the guy who can max a PFT with ease still ends up with a better score at the end of the day than the guy who falls short of maxing but gives it 100%.

All else equal, the...

Re: Traveling Abroad

The only portable option the really work lower body strength is resistance bands. So if that's something you care about, they're not just worthwhile, but essential.

Re: HELP! 2 mos to improve 1.5 mile run time...

There's a reason good runners run lots of miles and that's because it works. Even 800m specialists run upwards of 50 miles per week at the elite level. Now I understand that the OP isn't aiming to...

Re: HELP! 2 mos to improve 1.5 mile run time...

The fastest way to get better at running is to run. For someone who used to be a good runner, doing a few interval workouts every now and again might be enough. But for someone without a running...

Re: Murph as Swat Team Entry Test

It also disadvantages anyone who doesn't know how to kip.

But more important is the reason you cite. It doesn't seem like Murph tests the attributes that are most important for the job.

Re: recovery week ?

I think most research shows that keeping the intensity high by reducing volume is more effective than maintaining volume but cutting intensity.

Re: Before/After: Workout #1 of Starting Strength to Workout #29

That looks like a flexibility issue. Look how far his wrists are bent back in the first pic. If he tried to get the bar any lower, his wrists wouldn't allow it.

To the OP, great work!

Re: one lift a day for hypertrophy

Back when I was in high school and had no idea what I was doing, I would do stuff like 3 sets of 10 on bench, incline and flys for chest. That's 90 reps right there, and some days I would do more...

Re: Stalled press progress

Re: maxing pushups

You can add quite a bit to your bench press in six weeks, especially if it's not that strong to begin with. As I said in my first reply, he should work bench IF it's a weakness. I don't believe a...

Re: maxing pushups

If you don't have a fairly strong bench press already, working on that will likely pay the highest dividends for the least effort.

Re: Would SS help with my goals?

Yes, SS will help.

No, doing SS and the WODs isn't a good idea. And I'm sure one of the many SS purists will be along shortly to point out that if you're doing stuff in addition to SS, then you're...
