post #49141 of 57261
I have a police fitness test that I need to train/get in shape for coming up in May so I decided I was going to give crossfit a try as it's commonly recommended as a good way to train for it and the rigors of the academy.

Joined what I thought was just the closest crossfit to my house, but it turns out that it's not really crossfit - the programming is actually periodized and focused on olympic lifting/ athletic development - they just do a bunch of metcon stuff in addition. Pretty pumped to be actually strength training rather than just getting really tired every day.

Is it just called "R"?
And is it pretty straight forward? This is basic stat. Conf intervals, p-values etc comparing two data sets of 40 (80 total).

If you only have 80 data points just do it by hand, would take longer to download any software and learn the syntax.

Yeah you're right. I just told him I would use excel and that's what I"m doing. Looks shit but answers are right so whatever.

Excited to work these in!

Yeah, it's nice. I wish my basement was taller so I could military press. Garage is quite cold.

I bought a short squat stand a few weeks ago. In the summer I have a full set up in the garage, once the weather drops I bring bench, barbell, plates and DBs into the basement and use the squat stand. It's a workout in itself bringing everything down into the basement.

Can pretty much do everything but pullups (I just layer up and do them in the garage.

I still use the Y for the most part in the winter but it's nice to have the option to be able to go downstairs on thanksgiving and when the gym is closed.

Surf and turf night with the gf. Rib eye, lobster tail, potatoes and salad.

Wow I thought that lobster tail was mashed potatoes. Damn that looks tasty.

I havent had beef in ages though. Cant remember the last time. Only time I have steak is when I have French food.

Horse trailer mats and a propane heater (don't die) will fix any garage.

No, it won't.

Propane heater for starter's isn't worth it. You can crack doors/windows to ventilate but it also lets the heat out (it's generally 0-20f in the evening when I train) and makes it relatively pointless, also I still park two cars in my garage and don't want to store it (pull cars out and remove tarp when I want to train).

I already have flooring (recycled rubber gym flooring).

The main issue is picking up a dumbells and barbells that are frozen. 

If you live somewhere with a mild winter then fine, if it never/rarely gets below freezing then you can train year round in the garage, if you're dealing with northeast winters then you find another way to train in the winter.

Yea I am looking for a house with a bigger than average bonus room. Otherwise I will have to insulate and heat/cool the garage which is not the wave
