Re: Daily Blogroll?

I'm a huge fan of Arts & Letters Daily (http://www.aldaily.com/). I think it's WFS.

Re: Quantifying Overreaching

Here's a cheap, computer nerd way of tracking this:


Start with a blank Excel spreadsheet.
Put today's date in cell A1.
Starting with your cursor in that cell, hit enter as many times as...

Re: Why Concept 2 Rowers?

Re: Rowing on Griff

Christopher - I'm still quite heavy at 6'6", 290 lbs. The impact of running at this weight really gets to my knees. Jumping rope doesn't bother them nearly as much. I realize this is probably a...

Re: Rowing on Griff

Thanks for your help. I think I'll give the jumprope a go. Maybe 200 skips? Definitely single skips. The last time I tried double-unders after a hard row I scored a zero because I just couldn't...

Rowing on Griff

I sub rowing for runs in the WODs. Any ideas on a sub for today's 400m backward runs? I can't backwards row on a C2 and without a sub it's just one long row. Thanks!

Re: Mental endurance-thoughts and suggestions

This is a great topic, and one I struggle with myself. One of the biggest factors for me is working out at an affiliate. The community support and "shared pain" have allowed me to push much longer...

Re: Embarrassment

Rob,

When I first showed up a CrossFit I could barely do a do a push-up, let alone a pull-up. That was at the first of the year. Today I set a PR by doing 20 push-ups without stopping. Not too...

Re: Mountain Bike Recommendation?

Re: Siting down for too long and looking for solutions

If you like sitting on the ball, try buying a larger one. That's probably a lot cheaper than a new chair. I have used one as a desk chair in the past and find it keeps me much more awake and...

Re: Crossfitter-6ft and higher...need input

Re: Something to help with bruises

I've always had good luck with a product called Arniflora. It's a clear, arnica gel that's pretty easy to find in healthfood stores. It goes on clean and has little to no smell, which is a bonus...

Re: Lower Back Pain from Walking?

My back often tightens up when I'm doing more walking that usual. I experience this every time I take a family vacation and join my Dad on his morning walks. :run: Stretching helps a lot.

Re: Television...Heave Ho, or Heck No!???

Re: Broken Big Toe - What now?

At the risk of being vilified by the CF community, this might be an appropriate time to use some of the leg machines (leg extension, leg curl, etc.) if you have access to them. Yes, they're evil;...

Re: fat legs rowing

A strategically placed dab of Body Glide or a similar product can help. You can find this at any bike or running shop.
