Re: Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Tamara's log

Ha! I had the same silly idea yesterday. I'm tapering for a meet on Sat, and my last c&j sets for Thurs were 81x1x2 and 86x1x4 (both over the Rxd 75kg, so I presume its legit). So I did them with...

Re: Form Check - Snatch Balance

Just wanted to second what Graeme has said. Def work on developing a nice deep and comfortable overhead squat before worrying about the snatch balance.

Re: I want to up my squat clean?

Forum arguably safer in terms of photos and flirting.

Also, I second Brian D's counsel.

Re: Australian Rules Football and CrossFit

Also would depend on what country you are playing footy in. In the US, you'd be better off doing good strength work ala CFFB, because most people have poor skills and its mostly fighting on the...

Re: Changing City and State

I've moved yet again :(

If you would be so kind as to change my location to Baltimore, MD

And I promise I will live here for at least 3 years.

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

The bad part of the story:

Young gentlemen spotting each other on reps of the clean and jerk (metal plates)

severely rounded back deadlifts

The good part of the story:

Re: Why are Lifting shoes so expensive?

Can't emphasize enough how little wear they take if treated properly. After 18 months mine look and feel brand new because I never wear them outside the gym (but lift in them 4x a week). Consensus...

Re: CrossFit Bonnaroo

I for one am psyched about CrossFit at Bonnaroo! I kettlebelled there in 07, and will be joining Troy for whatever he can cook up at this years festival!

We'll have to exchange some contact info...

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

I'll second this. Certainly not MY first choice of location, but I've resorted to it, mostly to keep people from walking behind/under me whilst hauling barbells aloft.

Re: current or ex swimmers

I'm an ex-swimmer, but I wasn't as fast as David (at the same events) nor as knowledgeable as Mark. But, CF has allowed me to get back into the pool with plenty of power. Technique is rusty,...

Re: smith machine or dbs

Dumbbells, or just the plates themselves

Or any large rocks that might be around

No Smith machine

Re: CrossFit negative feedback in the news

I realize this is unrelated, but couldn't figure out how to send a dual PM.

Re: Reasons For Not Doing CF...Lets Hear 'Em!

I got the exact same answer from my fiancee, but countered with the observation that "cardio" isn't enough, and that she needs weights for bone density. We came to a compromise, where she lifts 1-2x...

Re: Fran Warmup suggestions requested

This only applies if the engine (lean body mass) is the right size for the frame (skeletal). Speals 150 works for him because he is 5'5. If someone is 5'11 150...they need to get the engine that...

Re: Inspired by J.T.

Inverted pull-ups? Scroll down just a little: http://www.drillsandskills.com/article/17 (wfs)

If body rows are too easy you can do front lever pull-ups, in a tuck. Here is a video of the un-tucked...
