Re: Hybrid Program Heavy Metcons

Think that one is bad. Try this one:
AMR(eps)AP - 10 Minutes
- Max Reps Overhead Squat (heavy)
- 2 x Front Squat
- 3 x Back Squat

Pick a heavy overhead squat weight that you can do a few...

Re: Have I Exhausted Genetics in Linear Progression?

Colin,
Are you taking any deload weeks, a week away from lifting. Week after week on the SS program will eventually lead to a wall. Take most of a week off from heavy lifting, but maybe on Friday or...

Re: girlfriend's squat form check

Maybe move her grip out a little wider too. She looks to be gripping the bar by her shoulders. That bothers me when I grip too close. Knees going beyond the toes bad? If you can keep your heel...

Re: Deadlift 3 Rep form check

On some of the lifts when you lowered the bar you had to move the bar around your knees. To begin the descent, push your hips back, knee bends to accomodate the hips going back, but don't let the...

Re: Overly duck footed stance when squating/landing full cleans?

Thomas, I have not seen anyone mention ankles. I missed it if anyone did. Check your ankle flexibility. Also, if you are wanting to do cleans and other oly lifts, might be time to buy some lifting...

Re: Grip Giving Out on Deadlifts

Hunter,
The best tool I have used for grip strength are kettlebells. Swings with heavy bells, cleans and snatches with 24kg bells will build super strong forearms. Also, heavy farmers walks. Pick up...

Re: Snatch and Clean Pulling

Also, think about leading with your chest, jumping up as high as you can. The bar should travel up the leg and into your pockets. Leaning back will depend on your body type. If you have a large belly...

Re: November 'Thruster' challenge

Any prescribed weight for the ladies that want to participate. We were thinking 45lbs, 65lbs, 85lbs, 95lbs for any women at our gym that wanted to join in. But, maybe 45lbs, 65lbs, 75lbs, 85lbs would...

Re: CF Games 2009

#30 that is an interesting idea. Measure total output by the athlete over the prescribed amount of time. 400 thrusters at 50lbs or 200 thrusters at 100lbs would tie. That is what Crossfit is about,...

Re: Lifting Platform?

Might consider rubber mats. Two or three 4'x6' mats will give you a nice solid slip resistance surface to work on. 3/4" thick mats are $65 a piece at Bigger, Faster, Stronger....

Re: Functionality of Walking with Weight Overhead?

Tell them it is effective. If they question that have them try it and see if they get sore, tired, or sissy with it.

Practicality of the move is another thing and is different for each individual....

Re: running question

Matt,
Also make sure you are not pushing off too much. If you are landing on your forefoot and pushing out the back too late you will strain your calves. You want to be picking your foot off the...

Re: small stabilizers

Patrick,
Maybe some unbalanced lifting will help strengthen more of the muscles around your spine. Overhead lifting working one arm at a time will recruit those muscles differently. Doing one armed...

Re: Don't like the heavy weights

On the Fran question, scale down the weight so you can keep the intensity up. But don't get too comfortable at the lighter weight. When it starts getting easy go up in weight until you at least reach...

Re: Sub. for running?

George, if/when you get back to running consider modifying your running form. This is something most people don't think about, they just run harder to in order to run faster. But if there is a flaw...

Re: Doubling Up

I did two a days for one week over the summer and boy was I glad when that week was over. I did 2 workouts a day, 2 days on, 1 day off. Make sure you eat more and get plenty of rest. If any of those...

Re: Starting out

Welcome Dominik,
Sorry to hear about your loss. You have come to the right place to make a better, more fit future for yourself. A year from now you won't even recognize the man in the mirror.

Re: Squats vs. Deads

I'm at 425 deadlift and 275 squat. To me the 150lb difference is too big. I would think in the low to mid 300's would be more balanced. But, I have been having a problem with my piriformis on my...

Re: Charles Poliquin on Crossfit

He should have stopped here. But, obviously he is not intelligent enough to admit he does not know everything. So, he tries to make up for it by letting his brain fart all over the place. And it...

Re: Working out early in the morning?

Re: hating burpees

Lou,
Give the 100 day burpee challenge a try. Do 1 burpee on day 1, 2 on day 2, 3 on day 3, etc. The first two weeks will be easy, by day 50 you will be better at the burpees prescribe in any...

Re: Pros/Cons of regular ruck runs

Jason,
I think rucking just makes you a tougher SOB. If you had to move a long distance quickly and carry your gear with you would have to run with it. Ruck marches and runs prepare you mentally and...

Re: Free Time?????

I would say you have a lot of physical activity in your schedule. If you had to do something I might suggest stretching. Other than that do whatever balances you out. If that is playing a video game,...
