Re: Burpees

Does anyone have a sub for kicks to the nuts? My nuts can't handle straight kicks yet, but I'm working towards it by trying advanced parkour moves over rails with no prior experience.

Re: Conditioning programming

Outlaw CrossFit posts a conditioning workout every day. I just add it after my strength work. Great variance in it.

Re: Wendler's 5/3/1 and cutting

Nutrition is how you cut fat, not by changing how you work out. You said you've been eating to gain change it up and eat to lose weight. Lots of vegetables, some meat and fruit.

Re: Wendler 5/3/1 Final Plan + Diet Questions

Cam, get creative with cooking methods. You can't do eggs on a stovetop, but you can do them in a microwave. For a few years I'd put four eggs and four handfuls of spinach in a Pyrex bowl and...

Re: Bar Muscle-Up Help!

Mike, what helped me the most was to think about driving my knees up towards my chin. A lot of Kipling muscle-ups is in the legs. The arms will guide you, but use the legs to drive upward.

Re: First month in. I have caught the CF FEVER!

Re: Crossfit - Beginning in Riyadh

Hi Shariq,

I've been following the main site WOD for two years. About a year ago I added in some additional strength and it was a tremendous change- my fitness levels greatly improved.

Re: Can you train against blacking out during exercise

Probably a little simplistic for what you're looking for, but to avoid blacking out I use the "G straining maneuver" to combat the head rush after a heavy lift. It's what fighter pilots use to keep...

Re: Hand Tears

I use the Rogue gymnastics grips in any WOD that involves more than 50+ total pull-ups. This really cut down on the problems with torn hands.

Re: CrossFit Resort - If I build it, will they come?

I love the concept. What state would this be in? Temperate climate would be key.

Did you do the artwork yourself?

Split jerk weaker than clean and jerk...

Today I did the Split jerk 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 WOD. About three weeks ago I hit a new max on Clean and Jerk (195), so I figured today I'd shoot for 200-210 range for a new jerk max. However, I wasn't even...

Re: How Do I Deal With Ignorant Bodybuilders Dissing CrossFit?!

Doesn't sound like they're your friends, and you probably aren't working out at the same place, so why interact with them at all? Leave them to their sport and have fun with yours.

Re: Pain in my lower back when attempting l-sits

Are you doing any flexibility work before the L-sits? Tightness in your hamstrings could be causing the pain. Try 3-5 minutes of hamstrings stretches prior to the WOD or L-sit.

If your local CrossFit box is a good one, no one will judge you and the community support you'll find to be unbelievable.
