Re: My garage is COLD!

I agree with the "suck it up and do it philosophy"

What really sucks is doing pull ups on an ice cold bar.

Remember that nature doesn't care if it's 10 degrees out or not. Stay warm, listen to your...

Re: Cross Country and CrossFit

I'd also try and do the heavy lifts before the running on practice days.

Re: Are squats a practical strength movement?

Take 2 athletes. One has a max C&J of 155, the other has a max C&J of 255. Which one do you think will finish Grace faster?

Re: De Quervain's tenosynovitis?

I just had this flare up again. I'm pretty sure the 5 x 10 front squats we did the other day is what caused it. That rack position didn't feel too good on my wrists.

Re: Is 'paleo' really Paleolithic?

Just because it occurs "naturally" in their bodies doesn't mean is good to supplement it by injection (which is obviously by no means natural). Why don't you try injecting testosterone in your body...

Re: Why aren't there more back squats on the main page WOD's?

The only way the posterior chain is activated during the squat is if your back is not vertical. I believe that the primary reason Rip prescribes low bar squats instead of high bar squats is the hip...

Re: Is 'paleo' really Paleolithic?

Not only that, but a large problem I have with the majority of cattle is the growth hormone, etc. I like my meat natural please.

Re: Substitutions for Squats-knee pain

I had a repaired tear and lost over half of my meniscus (including an ACL graft from my hamstring). I had knee pain until I started squatting - since then I've had no pain at all.

Re: Substitutions for Squats-knee pain

Before looking to change the exercise, any chance you can have him post a video of his squat? It could very easily be technique issues. (Even if he believes his technique is correct).

Re: How economical can a zone diet be?

I used mostly tuna and eggs for protein, with probably 5 ounces of chicken breast a day. I did use a moderate amount of grains for carbs though and supplemented with milk.

Re: How economical can a zone diet be?

I figured it awhile ago to be around $50 a week (Mon - Sat) to eat 17 blocks.

Re: Feel really full on the Zone diet...something is wrong

Boss, I'm not trying to argue with you, I'm trying to provide you with information you may or may not have seen before.

Re: You Walk Wrong by Adam Sternbergh

I'll squat in my Vibrams the vast majority of the time. Heavy squatting and deadlifting "barefoot" (since you basically are) have done wonders for my feet.

Re: Are squats a practical strength movement?

Absolutely. For raw, brute strength the DL has no substitute. I've heard it a few times that you aren't ready to start serious training until you have a 2x BW deadlift.

I like deadlifting more than...

Re: Are squats a practical strength movement?

Britt,

No worries. Just a misunderstanding, and I probably took to offense too quickly.

To me it isn't more plausible for the reasons I was saying before. I just believe that very high rep sets are...

Zygmunt,

Also, why not actually read up on the zone and give it a shot for a month? You'll definitely learn...
