I'm finally getting around to posting a summary of the contents of the Nov issue of the CFJ--in addition to the Rippetoe DL piece featured for tomorrow on the WOD blog--so's y'all know what's there.

Jesse Woody, “Parkour Basics: A Compendium” – CrossFit’s own monkey boy wraps up his series on parkour progressions with this one-stop illustrated reference for the moves. Print it, laminate it, run with it.

Becca Borawski, “The Triangle” – MMA maniac “Ring Girl” (aka Becca Borawski) dissects the jiu-jitsu Triangle, with demo photos featuring the Cindy Omatsu, the first American woman black belt in BJJ.

Mike Burgener with Tony Budding, “Learning the Olympic Lifts—The Stance” – One piece at a time, Coach B is going to walk us through the finer points of the o-lifts, beginning, this month, with the pulling and landing stances. It might seem simple, but much of what goes right or wrong with a lift is related to what happens here.

Mike Contreras. “The Fire Service and CrossFit” – Firefighters in Orange County are shaping up with CrossFit, and Contreras tells us how a dedicated group within made it happen.

Jim Decker, “Forging Mental Fitness” – Decker, of CrossFit Torii Beach in Okinawa, Japan, reflects on what it takes to get through the toughest CF workouts—the “real suck-fests,” as he calls them: “No one can give you a cup of fortitude, a neatly packaged perseverance bar. It must come from within.”

Scott Hagnas, “Bike Control Basics, Part 2: Ascending Objects” – CrossFitter, Paleo guy, and bicycle freak Scotty teaches some more of the elements of bike control. Your skillz may not be as mad as his, but you gotta start from somewhere. Cool vids too.

Roger Harrell, “The Gymnastics Hurdle” – More gymnastics moves, with lots of video clips for your edification and entertainment (sorry, no white tights though).

Tony Leyland, “What Do We Know?” – What has exfizz done for us lately? Professor Leyland will keep us in the loop.

Jeff Martone, “Kettlebell Basics: Drills for Improving Your Swing” – Mr. H2H himself backs it up to the basics and gives some exercises for improving that most basic of KB moves, the swing.

Mark Rippetoe, “A New, Rather Long Analysis of the Deadlift” – Mark Rippetoe at his analytical best. This is what results when you push Rip on what the DL setup should look like and then give him time to ponder it. Eureka! A CrossFit Journal scoop.

“Fragmentary Order #4” – Another in the ongoing series of workouts disguised as military operations. This one fondly known as “YBF.”
