Hope its helpful.
In your reading, did you find anything about supplementing with caffeine post-workout?

Why would you supplement with it PWO? It won't serve any ergogenic purpose at that point.

Re: Caffeine as a supplement

I've recently switched to a pint of whole milk about 2 hours before, and a cup of black coffee one hour before. Really like how I've been feeling since then.

I got a little overzealous today and added a shot of espresso to my coffee. Worst decision I ever made. The espresso tore my stomach to shreds. I had to stop midway through my warmup with a cold sweat and horrible nausea. I haven't even eaten since then.

Just doing some reading, and it doesn't sound like that bad of an idea...

Study: High rates of muscle glycogen resynthesis after exhaustive exercise when carbohydrate is coingested with caffeine. (wfs)

Granted, in that study they consumed caffeine equal to about 6 cups of coffee (8mg Caff/kg BW)... but it's interesting.

That is an interesting study, but caffeine lasts in the system for several hours, so you can consume it prior to your workout (although I personally wouldn't go that high on the dosing) and get the benefits there and with PWO glycogen synthesis assuming you consume simple carbs right after training (I would think).

I took 200 mg once to stay awake at night on a solo road trip and I thought my heart was going to explode. I think I would require hospitalization at that dosage.

Re: Caffeine as a supplement

PreWO Caffeine is great! I have a para-workout shake I drink that has 120mg that I sip throughout the workout.

Just be sure not to buy bulk powder; or be super careful if you do. Made that mistake once and accidentally took about 4GRAMS of it at once; bad times.

Re: Weight belts again

Ive squatted front and back now with a belt coming back from an injury. Its definitely different and going to take some getting used to. All of the pressure has found its way to new places and i cant even feel the old cues for when I hit full depth anymore. Going to keep playing with it...

Re: Weight belts again

I just received my Schiek model 3004 weightlifting belt this morning.

http://www.schiek.com/3004.html (WFS)

The interesting thing about this belt is that its shape is conical: it's wider at the top than at the bottom, and that it has both the features of a tapered and a non tapered belt.

It is 116 mm (4.57") in the back, 100 mm (3.94") in the front and 68 mm (2.68") at the sides.

I just put it on, even when you go full ATG squat position it still doesn't dig into your rips and/or hip, yet provides plenty of stability in the back and also a lot of area for your abs to push against.

I'll try it out Friday morning and I'll let you know how it feels in the deadlift, squats and C&J.

Creatine Supplements might be helpful

I've been researching creatine supplements for my daughter and finally gave it a try. I'm a vegetarian Masters Athlete, been doing CrossFit for 4 years. I was very surprised by the results. (sample size 1, I know . . . ). Here's a link to the article I wrote up. I'm almost always the first to gas out at my box. I've been attributing it to age. But maybe that's not been the case.
