Re: belt for Olympic lifts

I don't wear one for the snatch - too awkward to get into my pulling position. That's the big thing, it can't impede your positions. You also don't want the bar getting caught on it on the way up. ...

Re: Exercise Associated Hyponatremic Encephalopathy, Gatorade and the ACSM

And if you want to look at the fitness industry only, how about supplement companies that have no regulation and put all manner of ineffective and even dangerous crap in their products, much of it...

Re: Exercise Associated Hyponatremic Encephalopathy, Gatorade and the ACSM

Why all this righteous indignation about overhydration? Why not use the clout you feel CrossFit has to go after something that is assuredly harming more people, say like alcohol or tobacco? Because...

Re: Paleo Diet + Antibitoics ?

No prob. Dairy is the big thing that bugs me when I'm on antibiotics. If you're strict paleo you don't have to worry about that obviously. Also obviously, every body is different. So your mileage...

Re: Paleo Diet + Antibitoics ?

Common advice is lay off of acidic stuff, dairy and high fiber. You're probably good on a lot of that with paleo.

If you start getting stomach issues, you might try a probiotic but space it out...

Re: The Importance of Strength in Olympic Weightlifting and Other Power Output Activi

Well, they're obviously doing it wrong then.

I'm just saying, I have yet to find a lifting (or even CrossFit) coach worth their salt that will (1) let a client learn the full weightlifting movements...

Re: Paleo Diet + Antibitoics ?

Why would you want to counter the antibiotic? Wouldn't that be defeating the purpose of taking them?

Re: The Importance of Strength in Olympic Weightlifting and Other Power Output Activi

I'm not debating that you can theoretically lift more if you are stronger.

However, if I waited the year + it will probably take me to get a 400# squat, plus the almost two years since I have...

Re: The Importance of Strength in Olympic Weightlifting and Other Power Output Activi

I agree with your premise, not with your conclusion.

Yes, absolute strength is very important and should be worked on. Which is why most weightlifting programs have a very healthy dose of...

Re: Clean and Jerk tips

Will, I'm with you except the hips back part. Hips are torso should be pretty close to straight up and down. If you drop your hips back you're giving the bar horizontal movement from the start.

Re: Exercise Associated Hyponatremic Encephalopathy, Gatorade and the ACSM

So, are you suggesting that CrossFit is going to sue on behalf of the people Gatorade and the ACSM have possibly harmed? Or try to start a Gatorade boycott? Because otherwise I don't see the point.

Re: Substitution of kettlebells for OLY in Metcons

I like it. I don't think there's any discernable difference in conditioning benefits between high rep weightlifting movements and their kettlebell analogs. Kettlebell exercises were, however,...

Re: Body Weight Snatch

I'd drill a lot with pvc or the bar until the technique is consistant.

When you do start adding weight, I'd think you could go to an actual max for the hang version irrespective of what your full...

Re: Future Crossfit games athlete.

Re: NSAID Usage

Watch out with ridiculously high-dose fish oil supplementation. As with anything else, too much can be as bad or worse.

Not a doc, but it sounds like a piriformis issue to me.

Re: Body Weight Snatch

I would like to see a made lift for comparison.

And yes, he "only" got to see it live, but I assume he has seen you lift before to know your tendencies. That's why I asked what he said, to have an...

It looks like you are attempting to power snatch that. I'm not sure if that's the case but either way you need to focus on pulling yourself under the bar and not pulling the bar all the way...

Abs are more about what and how much you eat than how much core work you do.

Re: Hip Abductors & Front Squat

Falling over backwards sounds like more of a symptom of tight hamstrings to me. Or it could be that you're trying to sit "back" too far and not sitting "down." Think closer to a front squat than a...
