Re: Log

The first clean I can see you lost because of the bar swinging forward. The second, elbows were down to the sides during the third pull and your thoracic spine was rounded forward.

You probably...

Re: Cleans

Certainly not as bad as it could have been - you're close on a few points but they could be polished up a little.

Starting position - arms straight down to the bar. Hips will be lower than in a...

Re: Cleans and Jerks, any thoughts?

Yep, full extension and layback. Eliminate the early arm bend. As for coming up on the toes like Ian mentioned, that should be fairly natural. You want to push through your heels consistently - don't...

Re: Snatch and C&J Technique - What to fix first?

Get down into a squat and push your knees forward as much as you can without your heels coming off the floor or your calves tearing in half (the second being more important though less likely). With...

Re: oly lifting and hunger

Sarah, if only for the sake of those of us who struggle to keep any level of appetite, please go and eat. Your body is telling you to go eat that cow.

Rachel, is that a cast on your arm?

Re: Yes, there are *** Crossfitters!

No, it wouldn't. I did not ask who that applied to. Anyone here who I know it would apply to volunteered that information to the public.

I also posted more than the article you're talking about....

Re: Snatch and C&J Technique - What to fix first?

How's your ankle flexibility? An anomaly I'm noting here is that your knees are hardly going beyond your toes. Even in the full snatch, your knees are back. This would seem to help explain your lack...

Re: Yes, there are *** Crossfitters!

That's a very strong choice of words. My views are amongst the more intolerant of views on homosexuality, but even I don't "hate" people. Hate means to want the worst for someone/something. I want...

Re: Muscle-ups and ground clearance

Do a search for L-kip.

I would say that it helps, but it is certainly possible to tuck your legs up in order to do the muscle-up. The L-kip I was talking about makes use of the drop of your legs to...

Re: Funny faces we make...

Somehow I get the impression that the squat wasn't terribly pretty. Your knees and feet look off.

Re: Women's self defense/common sense

Yep. Just making sure something bad hadn't happened to you, like a meteor bombardment or an outbreak of the plague or a Barry Manilow concert. You never know.

Re: Women's self defense/common sense

Although you certainly don't want to be defenseless in the absence of an escort, there are definitely times when safety in numbers/perceived strength is a good idea. A woman walking on her own at...

Re: STD's and homosexuality

You want a new article, then? Fine. Relatively new data as well.

Similar to the first article (including its status in regards to wfs), but this time it's...

Re: STD's and homosexuality

Ah, I see. For one, you would be assuming that Muslims have a lower prevalence of HIV than Catholics, which the study does not indicate. You would also have to come up with a possible explanation...

Re: STD's and homosexuality

X group of people has higher rate of STD's than group Y. Group Y engages in heterosexual sex. Group X engages in either only homosexual sex or both heterosexual and homosexual sex. Since STD's are...

Re: STD's and homosexuality

No, it's the heterosexual sex that makes it difficult to gather conclusive data on why they have higher rates of STD's. The problem is that there are two possible reasons for the diseases, so you...

Re: STD's and homosexuality

Is it surprising that most cases of STD's would be spread by heterosexuals when heterosexuals are about 98% of the population? Even if the 90-95% figure, which seems to have no reference and in my...

Re: Cerebral Palsy

Tome?

Hmm, I haven't come across that kanji yet. The only one I know for strength is 強.

Some research, though, and it seems that it is indeed a kanji. Just one that looks identical to a katakana....
