Re: USA Today gives paleo and zone bad reviews

When I see "The government recommends...", I run the other way! Especially when it comes to nutrition. They're the ones who came up with the food pyramid--how's that working out for America's...

Re: Question for trainers.

Awesome, thanks for the replies/input! I'm going to start doing Crossfit w/ a strength bias & I'm sure my strength will increase sufficiently for me. I don't have any specific strength goals in mind,...

Re: Home Gym - How to Hang Rings

@Leroy--yes, I'd like to see some pics of your set-up. I was thinking of hanging my rings the same way.
Thanks!

I recently started doing Starting Strength b/c I'd like to build up my strength b/4 starting Crossfit. With a 1RM of 225 for the squat & 185 in the bench (at a bodyweight of 192), I feel pretty week....

Re: Suggested weight after week off?

@Eric--thanks for the advice. 150 lbs seems like it would be very light for a work set. I thought the work sets were supposed to challenge your muscles. Are you suggesting starting light just so I...

Re: Suggested weight after week off?

Whoa. Just completed 245x5x3. Almost didn't make it. 1st set was tough. Thought about dropping to 235 or even 225 to finish. Went for 245 on 2nd set, & it was easier than 1st set! 3rd set was going...

Re: Suggested weight after week off?

No, I haven't gotten stuck at any weight (yet). Making (slow?) steady progress. I'm actually happy w/ my gains, as I'm now squatting more in a 5x3 than I did as a 1 RM when I started just a month &...

@Robert--the "drop sets" I'm doing are actually referred to as "back-off sets" in SS. On pg. 297 there's a paragraph about back-off sets that state they're useful to increase work volume, & to work...

CFSB website?

Is there a CrossFit Strength Bias website? I tried to search the forums, but it's difficult on my iPhone. I don't have a pc or laptop available.

Re: Random question

I like that idea, Joshua. I may just try that--after a WOD, do some tire flips, or sledgehammers, or some sloshpipe work to toast me. I can imagine the burn now, & the feeling of accomplishment!
