Re: Zone Diet Body Type Question

I'd say you're probably an X-large male. I assume you're looking at the block chart in the article at http://journal.crossfit.com/2004/05/zone-meal-plans-crossfit-journ.tpl (WFS) to try and figure...

Re: crossfit for disabled?

You might be interested in Crossfit Rubicon's site.

http://www.cfrubicon.com/ (wfs)

They have a significant number of "adaptive athletes," so they might have some information you'd be interested...

Re: Determining "heats"

The only way that a 15 minute delay makes any sense to me is if you require everyone to do the pull-ups straight through, but the RX for Murph lets the athlete partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and...

Re: Charleston SC

I always go to Crossfit Integrity when I visit Charleston. (I grew up there and it's where my parents still live.) Integrity is in "West Ashley," which just means it's west of the Ashley river. The...

Re: Please re-think the new Camera Policy.

I think this rule is pretty stupid too. It's problematic for box owners who want to show their athletes in connection with their box in any promotional materials, and it's annoying to anyone who...

Re: CF and Steroids article

I have no confidence at all in their premise that a FFMI > 26 indicates steroid use. I did the calculations on myself and came out at 27.4. I've never used steroids or any other banned substance. I'm...

Re: New Balance Minimus Barefoot 10

The Minimus 10's are my crossfit shoe for everything except rope climbs. I think they're great across the board. For rope climbs, I use the cheapest pair of running shoes I can find, because I always...

Re: Shoes destroyed by rope climb

As far as I know, there's nothing you can do about the torn up Innov-8's, but I've got two suggestions that should help you stop ruining expensive shoes on the rope:

Option 1) Go to Payless and get...

Re: The $300 Gym and Starting Crossfit.

My first thought was a barbell and some weights That way you could get some deadlifting, squatting, and olympic lifting into your workouts. It looks like Rogue will sell you a bar and 160 lbs of...

Re: Crossfit on Biggest losers

I noticed the Rogue logo on several pieces of equipment. If I had to guess, they probably provided equipment for the show at a reduced price (maybe even free) in exchange for some in-show exposure.

Re: Cough after training...

I get that after every time I do Grace. I call it "Crossfit Lung." However, I've never had symptoms last longer than a few hours. In my case, I think it's basically a drying of the mucous membranes...

Re: 5 Ton 5K / Mid-Atlantic

Re: Double Unders

Hmm... As far as wear on the knees, I'd guess asphalt. I think it's marginally softer than concrete. The difference is probably academic, though.

Re: Double Unders

Neither is great. In general, the more abrasive a surface is, the faster it will eat through your rope. If you're doing DUs in your driveway, you might want to put down some sort of pad. You could...

This year, we're getting some friends together and doing the team...

Re: Ideas/recipes to learn to love red meat/steak

Are you cooking your steaks well-done? If so, stop it. Nothing ruins a steak (i.e. turns it into a chewy leather strip) quite as easily as cooking it to well-done. So, my first suggestion would be to...

Re: Conversion of Meters in Calories ?

I don't know if there's a fixed conversion rate or not. I suspect that there probably is a fixed conversion for calories to and from meters, but probably not for calories(or meters) to and from pulls...

Re: One complaint about the Games and Crossfit in general

Re: Zero Count Burpees????

According to the comments here: http://www.oceansidecrossfit.com/my_weblog/2009/12/thursday-122409.html (wfs), they are a burpee without the pushup portion. That's also what the guy was doing in the...

Re: Nutrition to help DOMS recovery?

This isn't nutrition, but it might help. Any time that we do a WOD that's likely to make everyone sore, the next day's WOD is pretty much guaranteed to be some variation on traditional cardio. For...

Re: Nutrition to help DOMS recovery?

The only advice I've heard in this vein is to drink a lot of water. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure that it's most effective as a preventative, rather than a recovery aid. It won't hurt to try,...

Re: Hiking a mountain with a kettlebell in a backpack?

Another advantage to the bags of sand is that, if you need to, you can just dump the sand. That might come in handy if you need to move fast or sustained an injury. Sure, you could just leave the...
