Re: What's harder hspu's or muscle ups?

I experimented with Steven's kipping MU technique tonight. I didn't quite get it, but I found what felt like an easy way to get through the transition. Do a false grip pullup. Then do a KTE and bring...

Re: How to improve running?

I would recommend just adding a half mile warmup in addition to your CFWU every day. Every couple weeks add a minute to the length of your runs until you get up to about a mile. I also like to do a...

Re: Veteran's Day workout 11/11

I did the last 3 today.

Josh - 10:52. My arms completely burned out on this one. I'm not exactly sure what happened. I'm pretty good at OHS, so my pullups didn't get much rest. I also think the OHS...

Re: Dynamic Effort, Max Effort, Volume and Constructing a Black Box for Strength & Po

Every single metcon or 2/3 of the workouts are done with submaximal weight. I realize it's not the same as DE, but it's definitely not ME.



OK, so as long as I'm not burning out on ME, there's no...

Re: Dynamic Effort, Max Effort, Volume and Constructing a Black Box for Strength & Po

I guess my real question is who would benefit from this program instead of a standard MEBB program? There is already so much submaximal work in crossfit I'm wondering if it makes sense to eliminate...

Re: Dynamic Effort, Max Effort, Volume and Constructing a Black Box for Strength & Po

Do you think metcon workouts can be used to take the place of DE days? For example, if I do Diane does it still make sense to do DE deadlift and press or would it make more sense to focus mainly on...

Re: Still Crossfit?

I've read that training of any type results in a conversion of IIB to IIA and rest results in a conversion back to IIB. Rest following heavy training may result in an increase in IIB over the...

Re: Shoes-Running-Crossfit

I've heard you can go longer than 500 miles, but I'm only up to about 200 miles on my H. Streets so I can't say for sure.

Also, I was in a store recently and saw the Puma Saloh. They looked...

Re: Can a crossfitter win a marathon?

A lot of ultras and especially the trail ultras have a huge amount of vertical gain. It's pretty common for a 100 mile trail run to have over 20,000' feet of climbs. Hardrock has about 33,000'. Hill...

Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

Does no resting mean no pausing at the bottom or just that you can't get off the bar to rest?

Does anyone find it useful to change grips in the middle of the set? If so what grips do you use and...

Re: Mis-leading Power (Strict vs. Kipping pullups, Vid Nov. 19)

Brad,
I agree with you. I could probably add 3 rounds to my Cindy if I did worming pushups. If increased power output is the main reason for doing kipping pullups during metcon workouts, then why...

Re: Weighted Kipping Pull ups

For kipping pullups with dumbbells I find it easiest to hold the weight between my knees and do an Annie style kick rather than a swing.

Re: A different kind of WOD?

I think what your saying is a metcon completed in a certain time where the score is the load used. There used to be some workouts like that in the first year or so on the archives. I find it fun...

Re: Squat flexibility and knee direction

Why does Q angle affect squatting? I would have thought that with the heels directly under the hips that the angle becomes 0 for everyone.

Re: Which burns more calories?

Eric,
By more efficient I meant the mechanical sense meaning less calories for the same distance.

If fat loss is the goal, high intensity is the way to go, as others have said.

Re: Which burns more calories?

The 15 minute run burns more calories than the 30 minute run. Efficiency (calories burned per mile) as a function of speed is a U-shaped curve. For most people, running is most efficient at a speed...
