Re: Running a new affiliate

Don't spend any money you don't have to Shaune. That means no advertising. The only advertising we did when we started was a set of magnets for our car. $80, and it brought in many people.

Re: level 1 exam

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

I highly suggest the split jerk. Unless you have crazy flexibility, one can get under the bar lower with a split. I have all my athletes use the split. They don't like it for about 1/2 a work out,...

Re: sleep issues

I've been taking 4000 iu daily for about 3 months. I weigh about 130. Is 4000 iu too little?

As an aside, I've gained almost 10 pounds in the past 2 months, and I don't know why. We have been...

I've been waking quite a bit lately, and usually I can go right back to sleep. But sometimes I can be awake for over an hour. Last night was a perfect example:

Re: Clients with extreme moods in the WOD

I've never had anyone DNF a workout, other than from injury. At first, I scale a lot, planting the seed of success. Then we quickly increase weight/reps/intensity, and things change.

Re: Confused about childrens' diet?

Yep, it's hard, but it's do-able. And it's worth it, IMHO. Our daughters are 6 and 4, and they eat a mostly paleo diet. We allow them 1 grain product per day. The call fruit "God's candy," and...

Re: Freezer full of grass-fed meats

Ham steak ... yummy! Cook slowly for a couple of hours, can use some ACV and tomatoes for a bbq flavor, or some coconut milk with various asian spices. No specific directions, but it'll work!

Re: Under armour problem

Here's the deal ... sweat has oil in it, and you have to break up the oil. Add a squirt of Dawn Ultra to the wash, and that should do the trick. If not, you can add a product called Synthrapol from...

Re: Ehlers Danlos?

Thanks a lot Everett. His mom specifically told me he has the hypermobility, Type III. Before I "take him on," I'll definitely try to get in touch with his MD.

Thanks!
