Re: Rich or Matt?

For me it's like watching two eagles flying a mile high over my head and trying to decide which one is the better flyer.

Keep getting logged out

I log in, go to look at something and am logged out. Am I doing something wrong? Do I need to register somewhere that wasn't required before? I am a long time crossfitter (2007), haven't been...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Wrong. She definitely got lower after she was no rep'd. The last ones were legit. She deserved the win big time. Great interview after. Every day was game day for the last year. Try that on for...

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I can't believe anyone is arguing Sam Briggs should not go to the games. She won three events outright and 2nd in a fourth. She bombed on the handstand walk for distance (!) in my opinion the...

Re: Strange issue encountered with one arm chin ups

When I was much younger and could actually do one arm pu's I was the same way, I could do more with my left than right though in every other way my right arm was stronger. I attributed it to what I...

Re: What could make my upper and lower legs become misaligned?

You're off the beaten path with something hard to figure out and apparently not life threatening which means you have to figure it out for yourself until you find a professional curious enough and...

Re: Sciatica and Degenerative Disk Disease

I got the injections four and a half years ago after months of radiating pain due to a disk bulge at L3-4. A day or so after the injection I got busy with Bill Starr's "Rehabilitating the Lower...

Re: After Ablation of Heart and Cardioversion

Hey Shawn, I've had two ablations, one last year, the second one this year in May. I know I'm a few decades older than you (I'm 65) but I'm still stunned that you're jerking 245 one week after the...

Re: Increasing grip strength

Try just hanging from a pull up bar for time (Active shoulders). When you get up to 2-3 minutes, do one hand hangs.

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Well said Mark, and thanks for saying it. Kristan Clever's spirit is what Crossfit means to me. I was in awe of her when I was playing with all the competitors stats in the 2009 games long before...

Re: Games Purses and the Masters

Everyone competing in the masters division has already been signed up and training for months with the expectation of zero dollars. Zero to $3000 is a snub? I don't think so.

Re: Overhead Press

Looks a little better. I'm not a trainer but keep your forearms vertical and your elbows under your hands and don't let them stick out to the left and right on the way up. Your back still isn't...

Re: Schwin Airdyne bike

Thanks for the link, I find it pretty unbelievable. Nice to know what's possible. I wonder if Chris Spealler has managed this feat? I understand he was a monster on the airdyne in his earlier...

Re: Schwin Airdyne bike

Airdynes are awesome. But 30 cal/min for 10 minutes is superhuman. Tabata intervals on the Airdyne are great, but I die after about 6 rounds. I can't get 60 calories in those 3 minutes. I'm old. ...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

I think Coach just needs to convince a court to block Laurens sale to Anthos if he can come up with the money to buy her 50%. I'd be happy to contribute to this cause and I don't need any "shares"...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

This seems pretty far off the mark to me. What is your basis for saying this? Certainly there will be a few weak affiliates which probably won't last long, certainly not in a strong market area for...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit
