Foot is healing pretty quickly. I'm about 60% mobile. Shouldnt be a problem getting on the subway to work tomorrow. Should also be OK to do upper body stuff in the gym too though I def won't do any body weight stuff. Might just circuit on machines.

I have two helmets. I just realized I've only gone down wearing one of them. I stopped wearing the other one because it was giving me a rash. I'm gonna toss the crash helmet and wash the other one. Def gonna stop commuting to work in the city, too much risk.

have taken a hacksaw to the multigym and am currently bolting it down to my rack. looking fucking awesome, i'm going to have a high/low cable pulley setup which rules along with a shitton of spare parts. the main movements i'm looking forward to using are pullthroughs and pulldowns but it'll also be nice to use the cables for face pulls, curls, triceps, rows, etc. going to turn the leg extension attachment into one of these. right now i'm thinking the pec deck handle thingies will become some kind of t-bar row but i'd have to get chopping and welding for that which i'm not exactly keen on doing until i can think of the best purpose for them. pics to follow

Yea the streets need those pics jarude

I am a machine fiend... I would love to build an all in one cable machine for rows, lateral raises, tricep extensions etc. Def curious to see what you do

Neither can she. I'm sure you can wildly swing your way into dip position.

Prob can't as they are still fairly hard. I can do about 15 pull ups and have done them weighted with 30kg and I can't do one. As much as everyone loves shitting on cross fit, I'm guessing none of us are doing ring dips for reps.

What % of crossfitters are doing ring dips for reps

I know one dude who is a good Xfitter... but he was squatting 2X BW for reps in college and has always been an athlete. I dont think anyone who starts out out of shape with Xfit becomes strong + athletic with it. Just injured

Ring dips are hard. I can dip with a 15kg plate for 10+ reps but can only do 1-2 ring dips.

Also blast strap fallouts are crazy hard.

Plenty of people have gotten stronger and more athletic doing Crossfit. Perhaps I just had a very good experience with CF, but the CF I started at when I was 17 basically taught me how to lift. Almost five years later, I've been able to get continually stronger, and have yet to have an injury. I think the decentralized nature of CF makes it silly to make such sweeping generalizations about injury. People get injured everywhere. Some coaches suck. That's the way it is.

If you want to bitch about Crossfit, bitch about the core program. It seems far from the most efficient way to build strength, or to achieve a particular aesthetic. If that's what you want, do something else (as I have), but that's not the case for everyone. Also, ring dips are indeed fucking hard.

Finally, I pressed 195 last week. 200 is so close, then dat der BW press (205).

Complaints about Crossfit injury rates are indeed a complaint about the core program.

Anyone able to do normal dips for, say, 10 reps with their BW, should be able to do ring dips. Rings are harder, but it's more about balance than about strength. It doesn't take long to get the hang of it.

Hit the 170's when I was hungover as fuck on Saturday morning, but realistically around 180. I feel like I look the same at 180 as I did at 160, I don't know if that's a good thing or not. feelsweirdman

Need to start cutting my calories back to 3,750/day to get down to about 208-210 so I can make weight easier for the 198's.

About 25 days to weigh ins.
