Re: Star Wars Prequels

Here was the true defining moment of epic fail in the first three Star Wars movies:

"Give it up, Anakin! I have the high ground!"

Since when did 5 feet of elevation matter in a Jedi fight scene?

Re: rings through airport security?

They've had me pull my rings out of the bag once (I've taken it on 4 trips). The conversation basically went as follows:

"What is this?"
"A ring."
"Yeah, I can see that. What's inside of...

Re: Video: Mike Boyle teaches an awkward hang snatch

As a general rule, CFers don't have the best O-lifts from what I've seen... but some of these are downright hideous (the clean pulls were okay... if you take out the words "clean pull" and replace...

Re: Question for moderators

One common thread I see here is that, up to this point, these threads have been remarkably civil concerning their import. The worst commentary I've seen is (paraphrase) "HQ missed the ball on this...

Re: BBC report - "Low-carb diets 'damage arteries'"

Since when has 'balanced' been a meaningful term in terms of diet, and how 'balanced' is a diet heavy in grains (whole or not) which are remarkably low in vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fats?

Re: Perfectly Safe isn't perfectly ineffective

Suggesting that tackling itself inherently injures people is an overgeneralization- I think most people can accept that. The act of tackling, however, tends to hurt, and when two bodies collide, even...

Re: Perfectly Safe isn't perfectly ineffective

What you're describing, the exposure of novices to new technique, is no different from CrossFit ramp-up courses, technique introduction, and 'form...

Re: Athletes I'd Like to See CF

Sub-5 minutes? Assuming you could do the 400 m runs in 1:00, you'd still have only 2 minutes left to do 36 pullups and 63 swings. That's a second and a half per rep, assuming you don't slow down at...

Re: Potential Problem with "Area under the curve"

There are a few things about the "area under the curve model, among other things, that are problematic, and I think it's just understood.

As David put it, you don't just have time and work output,...

Many young curlers
Groan and flex for the mirror
Like an adult film

Re: Does that CrossFit make women big?

You're preaching to the choir here, and although I think everyone gets the point of both sides, I might as well state it explicitly. Most people don't face physical challenges daily, even organize...

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

That video has popped up a few times here on this forum, but it still makes me laugh every time I see it. To me, it resembles the very worst of the whole 'selected muscle' machine concept, as no one...

Re: Does that CrossFit make women big?

There is no need for anyone to be muscular today. Anyone with developed muscles in the urban/suburban western world is abnormal. We have built a world around us that demands nothing more than that we...

Re: Define "Dead Hang"

Just what the others have said, but I've noticed when I coach the pullup (I never thought I'd have to coach a deadhang, but it happens) that when I say 'straight arms,' people have a tendency to...

Re: Learn something new thread...(Come Contribute!)

When dancing swing (and most any other dance with Body Flight), rolling from the center of the front of the heel to the inside three toes gives you great control then rolling 'straight-forwards' onto...

Re: Does that CrossFit make women big?

Re: Heard in the Office Today

Most of the commercial microwave-able chicken wings you get have little to do with actual chicken, but have dozens of other ingredients and way too much breading.

Re: Changes in Kip?

Check out K-Starr's Crossfit Journal article about midline stabilization and the pullup. You're getting a lot of power, but if you kept it tighter, you'd probably be more efficient.
