Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

I still don't see how to watch the Final online or on ESPN2, 3, 4, 98, ETC.

Re: Why do people hate Crossfit?

My bodybuilding/powerlifting friends hate it because:

- They see kipping pullups as poorly done pullups and ineffective lat builders, to which I reply that isn't the goal.
- They share the Youtube...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Is this the result of a husband/wife thing? I hope I didn't speak out of turn.

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Seems to me this was an eventual inevitability the moment Greg or whoever first brought in a non-managing partner. You agree to give up something to somebody once you accept their money.

Re: Plyo boxes-sizes ?

I just built a 20" since I figured I could get one of the 4" risers if need be. I"m 47 and 270lbs so I won't be jumping out of the gym anytime soon.

Re: Adidas adiPower Oly Shoes

I've decided to keep them. They are much better for squatting than my Adidas Power Perfect II's. I never do WODs in my Oly shoes though. I don't think these would be good for that.

I will have a...

You comment about the heel doesn't really match up with what this guy says.

I don't care for the color; way too loud. I'm a white shoe guy. I may return and get the discounted Adistars.

Re: Tim's Garage Gym Pics/Opinions Needed!

Where do you guys park the car? I've decided I'm going to need a 3-car garage. One bay for the gym, one for the car and one for household/yard tools.

Re: Kettlebell WODs

I know I can make up WODs on my own (and I didn't forget burpees). I just wanted established WODs that I might have been missing. The Crossfit Travel WODs pdf was a big help though.

Re: are olympic shoes necessary??

My Adidas that I've had since 1994. The original strings are a bit slippery but I could sell these shoes for what I paid for them. I've got some Powerperfect 2's also.

Kettlebell WODs

I have read Shane's Bodyweight Workout, very good. However most of even the simpler WODs require a pullup bar, which I don't have yet. I'm 250lbs so I'm not going to risk destroying a doorway with a...

Re: CF without a trainer

Buy a book on Oly lifting and video your lifts. That's what I did...stunned how bad my hip drive is.

Re: Body Weight Workout

Pushups/Situps (I do crunches)

20 pushups, 1 situp
19 pushups, 2 situps
18 pushups, 3 situps
continue til you end with 1 pushup, 20 situps

This hurts like $%$$ but you will be pumped beyond belief.

Re: How to eat clean without cleaning out your wallet

Base your purchase decision on price, personal preference and recipe you will prepare. For example, if a recipe indicates to brown and drain ground beef, any lean percentage is suitable.

Re: Nike Romaleos and other recommended shoes

To truly review a weightlifting shoe you need to be changing from another weightlifting shoe. Of course they feel different/better than regular sneakers if you need the support, which I do.

Re: 2010 Pendlay Do-Win shoes size 9

They look like all the other 2010 White Do-Wins so I didn't post a pic. Regardless, here they are. I'm not interested in trades. I have already purchased Adidas Power Perfect II's.

2010 Pendlay Do-Win shoes size 9

I'm selling a pair of white 2010 Pendlay Do-Win shoes size 9. They're just too small for me. They've been worn about 5-6 hours total.

$50 plus shipping.
