Re: What Do (Or Would) You Drive?

I used to have a 350Z, but sold it. A friend of ours (my wife and I) made a comment on facebook about how his wife is out of town so he gets to drive the (370)Z for a couple days. I said "lucky...

Re: Navy Nuke

What kind of SAR swimmer do you want to be...ship or helo? Being a SAR swimmer on a ship is collateral duty and you'll hardly get into the water; maybe once a month if you're lucky. Being in a...

Re: Navy Nuke

Not that you should have anything to worry about as far as the test goes, but why don't you see if you can do that BEFORE you sign anything? Let's say you strain something or get a nasty cramp...

Re: Navy Nuke

Very, very true. If you get through nuke school you'll be stuck in the nuke pipeline for the remained of your enlistment. I've only heard of one person in the 10 years I've been in who was able to...

Re: Deadlifts: Legs or back?

I wasn't filling it out...just looking at it. It was a survey about motorcycle racers' fitness regiments and I just wanted to see what this person's preconceptions were. As I suspected, most of the...

Deadlifts: Legs or back?

So I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this, but just wanted some opinions. Someone at another site is collecting data for a survey and in the survey asks what exercises you do for a specific body...

Re: THANK YOU - Finished First Marathon

Thanks so much for posting this! I'm prepping for my first marathon, the Marine Corps Marathon in October. I'm doing the CFE WODs in the morning, following the running WOD for LC or U, along with...

Re: kindle ... anyone?

Love my Kindle. I echo everything Casey said so far. Plus if you travel it's the bomb. Nothing like finishing a paperback on a plane and not having another book. Or planning ahead and bringing...

Re: Before and after (paleo + CrossFit) face shots

You're not? Damn. :( Here I was, thinking I still had "it." I guess I need to go do more curls for the girls. Speaking of curls for the girls, my wife was lamenting on not being able to curl a...

Re: Paleo marathon nutrition?

Summer,

I had no idea chia seeds existed. Forgive me, but it sounds like what you plant when you're trying to grow a chia-pet. I'll have to google that stuff and do some research. Did you mash...

It will a while before that happens, and I think the Mrs. might have something to say about that. ;)

Before and after (paleo + CrossFit) face shots

The before photo was taken Feb 9th, at about 210 lbs (the brown thing in the pic is the arm of a teddy bear I got for my daughter). The after pic was today at 174 lbs.

So yeah, when anyone...

Re: consequence of WODs in the middle of a fast

I have no experience with WODs during a fast, but I do have some experience with fasting...both voluntary and involuntary.

First the voluntary one. I basically needed to drop weight in order to...

Paleo marathon nutrition?

I've signed up for my first marathon, and while I'm living paleo, I have concerns about being to stay that way, especially during the long training runs.

Any ideas on long run nutrition? The...

Marine Corps Marathon/IAFF Burn Foundation

So in what is perhaps a fool-hardy move, I have signed up for the 2010 Marine Corps Marathon...God help me. ;)

I will be running for/with the International Associate of Fire Fighters (IAFF)...

Re: The daily grind (not really)

When I was home (I'm deployed now) I always tried to get in my training/pt outside of "family time." I'd wake up early and go to work to run (before I found crossfit) and/or do it at lunch while at...

May I post a thread seeking donations?

I am running the 2010 Marine Corps Marathon for the IAFF Burn Foundation and I'm seeking donations for support. Would it be ok if I posted a thread asking for donations/support in Stuff and Nonsense?

Re: I have been challenged

Knowing my luck something like Murph or some other hero workout would show up. Then we'd both die. ;) Today's was hard enough as it was; in the middle of deadlift reps I was graying out.

Re: I have been challenged

I wonder how the scaling would work. If 135 is, let's say, 81% of my weight, should she do thrusters at 80% of her bodyweight? Then again, I know if I suggest a different standard she'll probably...

Re: I have been challenged

Holy mother of f--k! Am I reading that right?

100 thrusters @ 135 lbs for time with 5 burpees every minute on the minute?

Yeah, I'd say that's a hard one.

Re: I have been challenged

The challenger is actually my wife, who doesn't do crossfit. She has a trainer and can throw some heavy weights around. I won't go into details about the whole scenario leading up to this, but I...
