Does anyone have any topics that they would be particularly interested in seeing in Journal?

It sounds like the next journals already have topics lined up in the sprinting and parkour, and I am looking forward to both, but I would also be interested in Coaches rehabilitation philosophies and applications of common injuries like knee injuries. The shoulder article was good stuff, I want more. :happy:

I don't have all of the back issues yet, so I don't know if it's been covered, but I think an article on the lower back for stabilization, common injuries, and things to look out for when doing certain exercises would be very helpful for everyone.
For example, I've seen people posting on their back hurting after thrusters or push presses. I have a theory this is because they're using too much weight (I know, genius, but stay with me) for their lower back, but NOT for their shoulders. I came to CF having done traditional weight programs where I could seated shoulder press 135 for multiple reps/sets. When I saw Fran the first time, I thought, "heh, 95 lb? Plus you get momentum from squatting? No prob." I consequently screwed my back up. What I didn't understand (that I do now) was that it wasn't about my shoulders, it was about the weakness in my lower back and its inability to stabilize my torso. I had to arch way back to control the weight becuase I had NO, ZERO, Overhead Squat. I'd like to see something like that. (I've read the one on the OHS that came out a few journals ago, but that's more technique. I'd like to see one on the lower back's role in stabilizing for a host of common exercises.) My $0.02

Sean, don't know what level of detail you're looking for, but that issue is covered in the "Overhead Lifts" article in the January 2003 CFJ.

The nature of risk; crossfitter's various risky pusuits; crossfit's unique applicability for training various physical and mental abilities related to risky pursuits. Hmmm...?

More flexibility for shoulders, especially as it pertains to the rings. I feel that (maybe second to bodyweight), my lack of shoulder openness is the main object in my quest to muscle up.

How about some success stories.

Like how a chubby but strong writer sheds fat and finds her inner bikini model in time for the May seminar. (Oh wait...)

Since swimming has already been covered with a cross fit adaptation. How about a couple on running and biking?

How about a Q&A section where you pull some of the best questions off the board and give an expanded answer?
