Re: Crossfit/fitness in Diego Garcia?

Awesome response.

A generic military base response would have been enlightening.

I must really suck at connecting with the CF community or maybe they only care to help if you are an elite...

Crossfit/fitness in Diego Garcia?

I'm moving to Diego Garcia in a week. For those that don't know, it is an island in the Indian Ocean that serves as a US/UK Naval facility. I'll be a civilian contractor not military.

It would be...

Leg/knee pain remains after 2 weeks

About two weeks ago I did the following WOD:

30 back squats : 105#
30 dead lifts: 105#
30 front squats: 105#

It was one of those workouts where the BS and DL went by ok, but the front squats were...

Re: List your max 1RM deadlift and weight!

325# at 5'6/160#.

That was in early November, and now I am at the beginning of the 3rd cycle of Wendler. So I'm hoping I'm up around 345# right now. Probably will test 1RM after six cycles.

I feel...

Re: Turkish Getups...

I agree with what everyone has been saying about excluding TGUs from WODs....hopefully our box owner reads this because I'm not "elite enough" a CFer to be listened to.

Good for pressing abilities?...

Re: Kipping pullups- finally solved the mystery

Currently struggling with the kipping pullups, so will be paying attention to this thread.

To the guy that popped some ish about kipping is cheating, my take is this:

Re: I'm Not "Getting" Crossfit

I think strength gains for newer CFers can be pretty good because of the newness to them, but agree that you'll hit a wall pretty soon.

Overall CF is definitely aimed more towards endurance and...

Re: Tall vs. Small Strength Debate

Interesting experiment.....keep it up, it is fascinating!

I think the bigger issue here is weight, and for shorter guys to be as heavy as a taller guy they obviously have to put on much more muscle....

No love for the bench press

I've noticed there's not a lot of love for the bench press at CF. I hear that's it's not as functional as the other lifts, but if it's considered 1 of the 3 main powerlifting lifts, it can't be all...

Re: Gymnastic rings...wow didn't expect this..

Patience and lack of ego are 1, hehe. We've all been there!

#2 would be to do something like a "Recon Ron" program with bands. I've done some of these with a small red band, but if it's harder you...

Re: Combining Wendlers 5/3/1 with Crossfit?

While not doing BJJ, this is what I'm trying to do.

My box just went over Wendler's recently and our owner told us to do no more than 2-3 WODs a week.

Due to my work/travel schedule I'll be doing...

Nothing more than what I said.



This may be the most applicable advice here....guess I'll just have to play again while doing the CF stuff. :)

Re: What is it going to take to play football/basketball again?

OK, I can do 40 deadlift reps @ 185....not sure how long it would take me. I was forced to scale down once from 225 due to my form not being "ideal", and I did 135 and flew through them.

Now 40 reps...

Re: What is it going to take to play football/basketball again?

You don't need "strength" for non tackle football or basketball......and I'm a lot stronger now than I ever was in my teens.
