Re: to POSE or not to POSE??

Simple advice to start out with minimalist shoes -- start out with smaller distances and work up over time. You will be stretching your Achilles more than you are used to, and using supporting...

Re: Opinions on my girlfriends lack of results

I wish I had a better answer than Eat More, that would help get people past the mental game of calorie restriction. Even delicious tasty fat-filled satisfying food isn't enough to break down the...

Re: Vibrams and barefoot running?

I found Barefoot Ken Bob's web site pretty interesting. This guy is in his 50s, looks like a caveman, and runs marathons on roads and trails barefoot. (WFS, except lots of...

Re: Are there More Injuries in Crossfit?

I'll second what Troy said. It seems like my very minor injuries (achilles, wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip) have been related to problems from the past reoccurring or limitations due to lack of...

Re: BAD cramps in feet at night

I was listening to a radio show where people were swearing by yellow mustard as a treatment for cramps. Several cyclists would carry packs of yellow mustard during races and take them to treat...

Re: 2010 Games Average Competitor

OP listed the average height at 5' 7.5" and Sean listed it at 5' 11". I take it Sean is right since only a few guys were under 5' 8".

Re: how to track down causes of gas and bloating?

Scotch? You said gluten gave you stomach problems.

After doing much celiac research, I found that scotch is questionable if you are reacting to gluten. Although distillation separates gluten out,...

Re: 19 HS football players get rhabo at the same time

One of the commenters said pushups and dips to failure, then assisted pushups and dips after that. In a 115 degree room.

Re: How to get from "good" to "great?"

I tried the first few calculators Google showed, and for a woman 5' tall, 100 lbs and very active, 30 years old, just to maintain weight:

Calc 1: 2111
Calc 2: 2056
Calc 3: 1900 ish

The 1200...

Re: O.K.....Why Rowing?

My best guess is the rowing motion works like real physical therapy that you would do for TE. Lighter pain free movements with the same range of motion, building strength slowly. I did back off of...

Re: O.K.....Why Rowing?


My opinion:

* Rowing can hit all three pathways well in an overlapping way. If you pull hard you get strength. If you pull medium you get a great metcon workout. If you pull lighter for a...

Re: Pull-ups and run not improving

I found when I was on a rowing kick earlier this year (mainly 500m, 1000m, 2000m, 5000m) my pullup numbers got better. Not entirely sure how to explain that -- it seems a lot of the muscles are used...

Re: Is WOW the new WOD?

Re: salad can you have too much?

Re: fruit. can you eat too much??

Medical advice based on garbage science (like the standard cholesterol test) is irresponsible.

Re: 295 lbs - started CF & Paleo - Advice please

Re: I finally have a goal

Good luck.

Do you have a plan to reach the goals? Are you going to do mainsite WODs only, or specific training for those two goals or both?

I have similar goals (running speed and strength), with...

Re: First post: bawling during WOD?

A runner's high will make me cry sometimes.

Metcons make me sob, quiver, and shake, but not cry. Burpees have made me disoriented and given me a post-workout nosebleed, but not cry.

Re: First Post: Energy Boost then crash

I'm guessing what Katherine guessed. The fruit spiked your blood sugar, setting you up for an insulin induced crash later.

Because you said you haven't exercised in so long, I will also guess...

Re: Concerned what effect the 2010 programming will have on future competitors :(

With this scoring system, if you pile on a lot of points in one event you are out of contention. That means a competition with a pure strength event and a pure endurance event would eliminate most...

Re: Thoughts on 2010 Individual Events?

I loved the sandbag event because of all the strategy.

Do you carry the top heavy bags down the stairs, drag them, or throw them? (Carry)
Do you turn the wheelbarrow before loading it? (Yes)

Re: What's a good pace for 30 minutes on Concept2?
