Re: Landmines in place on Ball Slams?

Depends on what you're using the ball for. I'm at a loss for a good wall ball sub (maybe just thrusters?), but bumper plates work quite well for rage slams and would probably work for your core...

Re: 18yo/69kg - 86kg snatch, 160kg deadlift

That's about 50# more than I can pull and much more than I can snatch, but it definitely looked like your back rounded at 351.

Re: Squat - form check.

Jeff, you've been around here much longer than I have and I know you know your ****, but recently, thanks to CFFB, I read about compensatory acceleration training, which basically claims that reps...

Re: rogue ballistic block

Literally the greatest idea I've ever read on this column. Just not sure where one could find such a bag.

Re: My attempt at the 2013 crossfit games clean and jerk ladder

Watching extremely strong humans lift lots of weight never gets old for me. Thanks for the vids, Kevin.

Re: Reasonable amount of progress 4.5 months in?

I'd like to start out by thanking the OP for a pretty entertaining thread. Now, to address a point that has been raised more than once. You allegedly started this thread to discover whether you...

Re: Squat Check

Adam, thanks for the feedback. Yes, I was going for a HBBS, and keeping my chest up is definitely something I struggle with at heavier weights. I don't own a belt yet, but it's on my wish list. I've...

Re: 2014 Games Season Thoughts?

Motor would be the ability to get through a medium-length workout quickly and efficiently; capacity the ability to do several hard hitting workouts over a couple of days.

Re: Deadlift check

Thanks for the feedback. Robert, I will try to focus more on pushing through the floor, and I will get a side video next time. I also looked through Supple Leopard and K-Star recommends pulling...

Deadlift check

So today was the first time I got someone to film my deadlifts and I was really annoyed to discover that my hips are shooting up in the beginning of the movement. I'm not...

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Meh, I still think they're a pretty impressive display of athleticism, but maybe that's just because I can't string more than 5 together yet.

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

She's still one of the best looking female competitors, which IMO is saying a lot. Maybe that should count for something? 5 min AMRAP of jaws dropped/male drool spilled? It's the unknown and...

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

This was just a terrible call. I guess it doesn't matter much since the event is coming down to the women anyway, but still. Makes you wish there were a head judge with instant replay who could...

Re: Planning meals around work out times

Here's an entirely anecdotal, not remotely science-based opinion: you said that your workouts tend to make you want to puke, and I think part of that might have been the fact that you have been...

Re: How do i add 2.5 pounds?

As the others said, you could buy 1.25# plates. You could also go up 5# every other workout. Personally, I do a couple sets at the same weight as last week, then a couple at next week's weight. I...

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Questions that remain:
1) what naughty nancy really is
2) what the obstacles will be in the zigzag sprint
3) what the starting weight options will be for the C&J
4) weight of the MB, weight of the...

Re: Ring Dips, how far apart and grip Q?

Also not a gymnast, but my somewhat educated advice would be to grip the rings the same way you would grip the bar to do a press: along the diagonal curve that goes from the bottom middle of your...
