Re: The couch thread

This shit is actually pretty good! http://www.byersgetsdiesel.com/2008/12/are-you-crossfit-enough.html This is what I call the “CrossFit Enough” mentality.

Re: Cheap Foam Roller

Go to your local Target and get one of these + broom/pvc inside, and you're good: http://www.racedaynutrition.com/feature ... oller.aspx

Re: The couch thread

That's one thing I don't get. Rip vehemently advocates NOT using reps above 3 in any of the olympic lifts (power versions included) because of form breakdown...and Crossfit serves to be one of the best examples of that. Don't think he's been asked that question over on StrengthMill yet.
