I visited CFHQ last friday for some olift coaching (thanks, Lauren!). One of the things we used were some thin training disks - no real load, just sized to put the bar to standard height. I'd like to...

I contemplated using my Ironman in the way described, but it makes too damned much noise. My HR monitor can do the same thing in the same obnoxious way. I don't think my Suunto Vector has two timers,...

OK, today's WOD (well, yesterday's, but I did it today) had more squats. Air squats this time. I watched the Tabata squat video again to try to remind myself.

I don't have a ball for the bottom...

Download CrossFit Journal December 2002. The squat clinic article by Lauren is tremendous.

Not just pulling, but grip strength, too. And abs! My cross-sports application for pullups is obvious - I'm a climber. Doing pullup sets has made it really clear how weak my grip is, how much my abs...

Aha! The Scarlet Knights video makes it much clearer, as does Lincoln's explanation - thanks guys.

I'm a day behind in the WOD, so I'm looking forward to the KB snatches today. I've never done this (or anything with KBs, or any snatch!). I found video on the CF site for "KB swing" - is the KB...

I put my settings in the WOD notes. No speed demon, I: 3% grade (to simulate the outdoors), anywhere from 10:58 to 9:00 pace (5.5 - 6.7 mph) these days.

I can usually do 3 or 4 unaided pullups in the first set, and can usually manage about 5 negatives after that.

It sounds as if I should be doing many low rep sets. Oh boy oh boy!
