Re: Heard in the Office Today

Hey Jason,

could also have to do with you not running enough. Not that I know you're training programme at all, but just wondering if you could benefit from more intervals, as mentioned above?

Re: the versatility of a tire


I'm training a bunch of mates with no equipment, due to cost. This is a fantastic way of getting around cost issues.

Fantastic video!

Re: When is enough enough?

Hey Robert,

your post is interesting. What you talk about, the burnout, is part of why I posted this.

While maintaining a life balance is one reason to just focus on maintaining fitness, I...

Re: Practical Programming for Hypertrophy

Yeah, I know your question is about set and rep schemes, and you most likely know this already, but obviously eating is the most important thing.

I've stacked on muscle and fat by eating...

Re: Losing Strength...Programming Thoughts?

My thoughts are, it seems like you really want to be strong, but you feel like you should have great endurance too.

Try one programme for three months, I'd recommend Crossfit Football. Give...

Re: When is enough enough?

I'd focus on strength then ramping stamina back up.

Of course, I wouldn't bet the test on it :D

And I love being a big strong boy most of all the fitness aspects anyway so I'm biased.

Re: When is enough enough?

Hey Aushion,

I'm sure you're quite right that you couldn't expect to maintain EXACTLY a 2 x bodyweight deadlift, 75 push ups max, 1 min 4oom run every second of every day. Obviously.

But I...

Re: When is enough enough?

Yeah, I am pretty happy with where I am, and wasn't really looking for validation or guidance with this thread.

I was more interested in other peoples' views on this; ie, how many people plan to...

Re: What ia circuit training? and whats different from CF?

And the most obvious, the parts where they don't do circuit training.

Like ME days, repeated 400 m runs with breaks, and so on.

When is enough enough?

As in, I am now happy with almost every aspect of my fitness. I'm strong enough, fast enough, and fit enough. I'm not elite in terms of Crossfitters, but I am elite compared to the general populace....

Re: anyone here been to t-nation lately?

Yeah, I agree. Some rubbish, but alot of good stuff on strength development. Although using gymnastics to get big biceps does sound pretty naff.

Why not just do curls?

Re: An acceptable level of strength prior to beginning metcons

Barbells, dumbells, kettlebells, sandbags, whatever.

The tool doesn't matter so much.

If you take newbie A and newbie B, both of whom have exactly the same lifestyle, genetics, training...

Re: An acceptable level of strength prior to beginning metcons

The make up of the CF Games WODS, or the fact that you can't plan what life will throw at you, has nothing to do with the most effective way to train.

If I only had 6 months to train for the games...

Re: I can't stop eating!

Don't worry, this is a natural worry shared by all women.

Even women who don't walk for 6 hours a day and lift massive weights have been known to worry about their weight.

If I was you, I'd be...

Re: CrossFit with a side of bodybuilding.

+1 to all the pro bicep work comments here.

Rip is against bicep work? That's cos Rip wants to build squat and deadlift strength. If Rip wanted you to have big guns, he'd tell you to do bicep...

Re: We don't need CF anymore. Scientists prove it!

I'm to lazy to provide links to support this, but isn't there a widely held notion that those who live in a calorie deficit (of maybe up to 20%, I don't remember the exact figures) are more likely to...

Like Ryan, I don't agree it's "sciency" enough to prove much, but that info does provide some initial indications re injury rates anyway.

Re: Crossfit North Standards Again

I think the point is that Crossfit claims to forge elite fitness, and a set of fitness standards has been created which no one seems to be able to meet at the elite level.

Surely a set of...

Re: What is "elite" fitness

Alright, I looked for this empirical proof and couldn't find it. I didn't think I would, because as far as I know Crossfit has never had any formal studies conducted on it and has never proved itself...
