Re: But I Love Eggs...

I was all excited to debunk the study. Glad it already happened.

Commercials

Does anyone know if some of the commercials from the Games are available for download? Back in 2010 they released several inspiring commercials (I've probably watched the "Belief" one fifty times)....

Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

I was just talking about this with a friend/client and I agree that it doesn't matter. I was asking because the numbers seemed off to me based on my understanding and I didn't want to be mistaken....

Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

I was surprised to see the women's weights were approximately a multiplier of .6 to the men's weight. This could be my mistake, but based on "Grace" being a .7 multiplier (135lb x 0.7 = 94.5lb) I...

Re: Looking for a reputable Krav Maga school

Jeff, I second looking at their curriculum. There is so much to be said for de-escalation and avoidance in the first place. Nothing in your wallet is worth your life type stuff.

FWIW, I'd also...

Re: UFC 141-Ubereem wins his Octagon debut

Danim: for sure. It's been said before and is worth repeating that wrestling in particular gives such an incredible base and drive to win it always sows great seeds for future success. BJJ is amazing...

Re: UFC 141-Ubereem wins his Octagon debut

I'm happy to see it because as a lanky guy (6'8" / 220#) I enjoy watching my approximate body type fight since I roll and have trained a little bit of MMA. For a while some years back it seemed you...

Re: Mayhem vs Bisping in TUF

I was bummed Johnny Bedford got KTFO because I really liked him. Like I said in initial post, I've missed a lot of TUF the last several years due to the military but I loved the fights/fighters this...

Re: Squats after Hernia Surgery

I go in Sep 2nd for a inguinal hernia repair (with mesh). I didn't feel mine when it happened but when showering I looked down and had a "wtf is that?" moment. The day it happened our box WOD had...

Re: Evans v. Ortiz

I was hoping for more from Akiyama since I always root for Judo guys (years of judo here) but I like Belfort too, so that was win-win for me.

Re: Kipping chinup?

I had a labrum tear, from the 12 o'clock to 11 o'clock position (almost a complete SLAP tear). 6 sutures and a long recovery. I was in pretty awful shape then (this was pre-CrossFit). If you have any...

Re: Evans v. Ortiz

Agreed. My dislike for Rashad stems entirely from TUF.

And I also feel Tito's LHW dominance is inflated. He was great for the time (and perhaps that is all that matters) but split decisions over...

Re: Kipping chinup?

Certainly not, which is why at this point I've sworn off the pullup grip. For whatever reason though, the chinup grip feels substantially better and dare I say normal (I don't know why, it just...

Re: Kipping chinup?

Reasons for wanting to do them: To speed up my own WOD times and since I have a gig as a trainer at a local gym I feel awkward not being able to perform what seems to be a requisite movement, even...

Re: Seen in Public today

We have one in our box purely for comedic purposes.



That and I do curls with it when no one is looking. :eek:

Re: Kipping chinup?

I thought about mixed grip but was wary of a training imbalance due to only mixing one way to protect my left shoulder. You're certainly right though that mixing allows the push away which is a large...

Re: Evans v. Ortiz

I won't be buying the PPV for this one, it doesn't interest me that much, though I am curious to see how the fight goes. Sherdog play by play for this one.

UFC Rio on the other hand! I can't wait....

Kipping chinup?

Beyond being very tall (6'8") I've struggled with pullups due to a left arm shoulder surgery five years ago (damn BJJ). With a chinup grip my left shoulder doesn't bother me whereas in a pullup grip...

Evans v. Ortiz

My gut says Evans but my heart says Ortiz (mainly because I always thought Evans was too cocky/arrogant). Thoughts? I picture Evans winning a decision or perhaps by TKO in the 2nd or 3rd once his...

Re: RIP M-1 Global

Sherdog recently had a very well written discussing the legacy of Fedor. I agreed with your assessment, his legacy was hyped on a streak largely inflated by mediocre opponents. He was extremely...

Re: Switching from Creatine Ethyl Ester to Creatine Monohydrate

I've been thinking about trying that stuff. A couple of globo gym friends of mine swear by it. I only have ever taken a multi-vitamin and fish oil so I don't know much about other supplements.
