I have made a commitment to make an extensive search of the archives of this board in order to better educate myself about all aspects of Crossfit. I plan on reading posts by several of the more notable members of this community because of their obvious superior knowledge base in areas central to succcess in becoming fitter and wiser. The following names with their area of expertise noted have been selected. Lincoln Brigham and Dan John(O-Lifts), Coach Glassman(Crossfit),Coach Sommer and Roger Harrel and Robb Wolf(nutrition). Would any of you recommend that I include any other members of this board to my list? Have I overlooked anyone?

Read everything by Mark Twight. In the end you will be a whole lot wiser.

Eugene Allen has had some money posts, especially his recent summary of the Seminar in Santa Cruz.

I suggest you not limit yourself. While the people you mention are certainly worthy of study I've gotten some of the best advice and helpful observations from people with very few posts and who are relatively inexperienced. The "Starting" thread is incredibly inspirational, for example. Take your time and enjoy the community at large.

Yeah, read everything! I learnt more about fitness in one weekend of trawling through the board than in the rest of my life put together.

I've gotten alot out of Larry Lindenman's posts. So in addition to heeding his advice to read Mark Twight's posts also read Larry's.
May the learning curve be steep!

Tom, I'm pretty strong on the intersection of beer and crossfit.

Tom, you should definitely read all of my posts. I'm an author. I wrote a book called "How to Train 5 Days a Week for 10 Years and Achieve Absolutely Nothing!"

An inspiring read.

Sorry, all the good advice had already been given.

I'm going to second Mike there. We have deep depth in that department.

As chief of the bureau of redundancy department, I can only say "ditto!"
Besides, there are some who post infrequently like Mike Rutherford (aka Rutman), Mike Burgener, and more recently the CFHQ trainers like Michael Street (that's a lot of Mikes) who have vast amounts of knowledge that would be otherwise overlooked if you limited your searches and browsing.
Others with great knowledge like Brad, Lynne, Beth, Pat, Keith, (jeez I'm hitting a wall on names) and the posters above me all have great insights to share. That's what makes the organic nature of this collective so great.
Whatever that means!
