Re: What is this piece of equipment?

Grazie mille, now that you say it I see steps welded into it. It's probably a real bear for crunches, especially weighted. But it's not a GHD, and I don't think the spacing of the pads allows for...

What is this piece of equipment?

http://www.subito.it/panca-addominali-panatta-sport-napoli-3864845.htm (link WFS)

I have seen this offered before, and have no idea what it is (or any of the contraptions behind it, either). Can...

Re: What is this world coming to?

What Mr Taylor said, and double.

However, our local MWR management has run out of patience with Crossfit a**holes, and a-holes many of them are. Bars are caked with chalk and the floors are covered...

Re: They Can Print That?!

What does that tell you about the readership of Muscle and Fitness magazine?

Re: Wooden Plates

Adam, on an earlier post I made I noted that a lot of wire spools for cable have end caps that are exactly 450mm in diameter, very convenient. Just pop them off, double them up with screws/bolts...

Re: Is wearing a weight belt bad?

Jim, agreed, most people don't need most of the stuff they think they need. Most crossfitters can probably lift just fine without a belt, if they're coached correctly. From what you're saying, I...

Re: Is wearing a weight belt bad?

Jim, if you can't tell the difference between a belt and the rest of the powerlifting three-ply spring-loaded gear, then I'm not sure what we're talking about. A belt does not serve, in any sense,...

And the prize for most wobbly press...

I know it's wobbly from the ground up. What I'm not getting is how to stabilize myself from the ground up. I widened my stance slightly, that helped. Wider? I widened my grip, that helped, but I...

Re: Rubber Sheeting (UK)

James, I'll be moving to the UK soon. How much did you pay for the matting?

Six feet is probably fine. Worst that happens is you have to buy another sheet.

Re: Squat - time for a reset?

William, I didn't tape the first two sets, but on the fourth rep of both sets I got stuck in the hole and ended up putting the bar on the pins. I just didn't want to do that a third time. It looks...

Squat - time for a reset?

I had made it to 260 or 265 before, but then had a 7 week hiatus, and have had to work back to 265. I didn't make it first time, x4x4x4, but this time lost a rep x3x3x3, and ended up setting the bar...

Your turn - power cleans

3 sets of 125lbs, if you can stand them that long. My first in a while, and not much difference between them. At the end of the first set I pretty much missed the last rep. After turning off the...

Re: Is wearing a weight belt bad?

If ************.com wasn't down again, I'd go copy Rip's argument against those who contend, he would say ignorantly, that using a belt somehow prevents one from getting sufficient or max core work. ...

Re: Is wearing a weight belt bad?

No, it is good to use a weight belt. Discussed to death elsewhere on this board.

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

You know where Rip tells you to make the plates rattle at the end of the squat? This guy's "feeding the lion," those plates could take off across the gym like frisbees.

Re: Stuff that a Crossfitter doesn't need.

Not many crossfitters benching 500 lbs. Not many people, period.

I think he was talking about the crowd of guys, hands on the bar, yelling "It's all you, dude!" while the skinny guy with wobbly...
