Re: Life Saver for Sleep!

I like F.lux, although I will offer one minor oddness: if you are a gamer, the "fade" (once F.lux decides it's time to change the color temperature) can cause a remarkable slowdown and stuttering for...

Re: Starting Strength without a Bench Press Spot???

While I'm certain that everyone saying "if you're not doing SS exactly as prescribed you're not doing SS" is clearly doing every Crossfit WOD exactly as prescribed with no subs and is thus a perfect...

Re: Starting Strength without a Bench Press Spot???

It's doing the program more than a Tracy Anderson workout.

Hey, if the man say he's not able to get a spot, that's good enough for me; no need to get snarky. If the choice is "Do something that's...

Re: Ring rows as a sub for kipping PU

Not necessarily. I have to be very careful on how I descend from a pullup; if I come down too fast or just outside the right angle, I somehow tweak something and it hurts like hell (right shoulder...

Re: muscle mass and health

Sure, but while true I don't think that's the point being made. I think the point being made is that being strong is very important for being healthy in your later years, but that being super-strong...

Re: Pull Up Help!!!!!

There are a lot of pullup programs out there (recon ron, armstrong, twentypullups.com, etc). The one I used was a Pavel thing, but I used it just because it was easy to program without looking up...

Re: At what point during failure do you call it a day?

I've been getting frustrated with DUs myself, but I think it helps to practice the skill to frustration in a different environment than a WOD.

What I mean is, when you're actually doing the WOD,...

Re: When to stop increasing weight on squats, deadlifts, bench, etc?

I think everyone would want to continuously improve, but there's not enough time in a day to work on everything in life one would want to continuously improve on, so you go for the low-hanging...

Re: Rendered Duck Fat

Duck (and goose, almost better) fats are not only darn tasty (I'm not a potato fan, but roast potatoes with duck fat are fantastic) but some of the healthiest animal fats you can find. Tuck in!

Re: "Barefoot" work/casual shoes - SALE

Another vote for the Vivo Barefoots as "barefoot" casual wear. Very comfortable, look good, let you feel the surface you're walking on, but still pretty durable. I've been wearing mine regularly...

Re: Jump Rope Help

I went through a cheapie speed rope (snapped) and was a sucker for a Buddy Lee (handles cracked around the rope attachments).

I could always just get another cheap speed rope, but I'd rather get...

Re: Cooking scrambled eggs in a Stainless Steel Pan?

I like cast iron (currently using a tiny DeBuyer pan that is a very light thing, not sure if it's iron or carbon steel or what, but it takes seasoning--middlin' heat distribution due to light weight...

Re: Coffee?

It's weird; people make a big deal about coffee and tea and adopt a "I drink it eight times a day" or "it'll kill you, never touch the stuff" attitude.

Whatever happened to moderation? I have a...

I've never had skin cancer either--but my grandmother and father have. So I wear the fricken' hat (and a light-colored long-sleeved shirt, and long lightweight trousers... in Albuquerque summers). ...

Re: No matter how much I run...

Actually, there was a way in which I almost liked running. We had a Siberian husky. Of course it was pointless trying to tire him out, but he just loved running so much that it was infectious. If...

Re: Floor Press

I'm hardly an expert, but when I was working through a SS cycle, I subbed floor press for bench press. It's not a perfect sub (restricted ROM is the most immediate problem) but has some decided...

Re: No matter how much I run...

I'm with you--I hate running (and have ever since being on my high school cross-country team...). I solve that problem by just not running. Sure, I take a hit in running performance, and that's...

Re: No one cares about your abs

Well, it can be. Jamie's (Skibicki, not Tabor) point is that focusing on performance will give you good aesthetics, but...

Re: No one cares about your abs

/shrug.

My "fitness" test cares about my abs--or at least about my waistline measurement--much more than my wife does (and yes, I know waistline measurement isn't the same as "abs", or the same as...

I have some shoulder issues too. One semi-fun drill for building stability and "active shoulder" is "handstand wall runs"; been doing those on and off and they help a bit for foundation. Don't do...

Re: Those Who are Doing Crossfit from Home

Mixed bag, but generally positive for me. On the one hand, doing it at home means no excuses, and means I'm much more likely to do something. Having someone cheer me on oddly deflates me; even my...

Yup! Although more correct to say I want to do a lot (although a lot less) of something moderately more challenging and hope for skill transfer. It's still volume work, just moderately less with...

True, but those are not that dissimilar--ie very high volume of exercises I don't want to do in high volume for ancillary reasons. I'm presently blessed with a work arrangement where gtg is fairly...
