Re: Leg Strength in preperation for ruck marches

Re: Power Cleans

In your starting position you are rounding your back slightly. Part of your early arm bend seems to be happening because you are failing to open your hips and shrug before you start your high pull....

Re: VO2 Max/HR

Re: A very painful introduction

There are quite a few people who start Crossfit the same way that you did. And, most had the same pain. Unfortunately, Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) is really only relieved by rest....

Re: Muscle Soreness Help!!

Eat like crazy means make sure that you are giving your body the right amount of micronutrients to allow it to rebuild and repair. It does not have to lead to weight gain since you should 1) only do...

Re: Which to choose???

Re: CFE - How does running and ruck running work?

I would think that if you did the WOD then 4 CFE WODs you would be overtraining. I would say running is running. You are just adding some extra pounds for some of your runs.

Re: Intensity limiting power output?

I was watching the CFJ video on programming and they kind of addressed this issue. But, not entirely. The way I see it is you get what you put out. If on the first day you push so hard that you are...

Re: Turkey Breast... skinless vs deli style
