Yoon - it's true. There was breakdancing. David has photos.
I think I could handle Step 3 of the Windmill. What's your favorite Step?

John - ach. I knew someone would call me out on the yolks. I do eat yolks - there is no fear. In fact, there is great love of the perfectly boiled egg with a slightly runny yolk. But sometimes I want the meal to be more about protein than anything else, know what I'm sayin'?

Have you ever eaten higher than grams/bodyweight consistently?

Never fear, the Lyceum is always walking distance, not just on fridays.

Great to see CFSBK back in the house! Now go pester Xuan Mai to start posting again.

No fancy barbells needed. Just a common desire to lift heavy stuff, really

Actually, while I've got my favorite bar at LBH, I try not to get too attached to any one piece of equipment -- you really never know what sort of bars will be available to warmup with at a meet.

If anything, we can make it BYOB (Bring your own barbell). I've got a decent one at home

Sadly, I'm still trying to master step 1. I got the whole lying-flat-on-your-back thing, but once he starts moving his legs and stuff, he loses me.

My goal is to do a windmill on the platform the next time I bomb out at a meet (hopefully, there won't be a next time of course).

Where are you living, John?
Rough barbells are ok. All they need to do is be straight and spin.

I'm off the Clinton-Washington C train. It's a dead spot for real gyms. There's a FT Greene Crunch, and a Bed Stuy Y, but not much else. Need something local that can do heavy. Might just invest in a couple dumbbells I can adjust up to 100+ lbs each and play with them. Carry them up and down the stairs...

Isn't there something in the yolk that makes the protein "work" better, or more complete? Like the stinky sulfur? I dunno.

I've never gone over 1g per pound consistently though I have managed to do close to that for a while, I think. I'd guess the 120-150 gram range I've done a lot, but getting to over 200 is a lot for me. I bet I'm at ~130 for today safely so far.
Yes the Lycaeum ain't far, but I don't like most WODs. You guys got farmer's bars? Big tires to flip?

Yeah yeah yeah. You are right about the yolk, I know. I am properly shamed.

So much protein. Sometimes I try to get near bodyweight, which I think is 122 or someting, and that can feel oppressive. Can't imagine going for 177. Course, I can't get into the shake thing.

I hear you on the WODs. David likes to get max effort in there when he can (like tonight, for example!), above and beyond CF, so this is good. And I believe a regular O-lifting program is in the works.

Uhhhh, what's a farmer's bar? No tire. Yet. But ropes! Tug of War!

They're straight, load capacity up to 700ish, with an OK spin and not much whip.

Im looking at the budget-friendly Rogue fitness and CF economy bars for our next purchase. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hey David,
I actually have the CrossFit Pendlay bar. Well in theory. Due to problems with repeated no-shows/lost packages by my local carrier - fuck you again, UPS - I had the bar rerouted to my coach's house.

Here's what he had to say:
Quote:
The center portion of the bar is black in color. The knurling is light to medium. The inside collars are chrome and in the wider York style. The sleeves are chrome. The bar rotates with a smooth but dampened rotation -- that is to say it spins easily, but not freely, and that is good.
I did some light work with it this weekend at his place and it felt fine. Based on the top-limit weights I was intending to use with it, Glenn recommended it.

For $179, I think it's a really sweet deal. Don't forget the 15kg women's sizes too. I'll shoot you an e-mail later tonight after practice.

Shakes are lower on the list. My personal protein hiearchy is roughly:

Game/grassfed red meats, tuna steaks, salmon
Red meats and eggs
Other meats + sea life
Whole Milk
Powders

So I try to do shakes only with whole milk or some other food, which I feel is less bullshit. But who knows. One becomes acclimated to such an increase in protein but it's probably most worth it if one's goals are strength and size (or the other way around, too).
Powder is just a way to get to that next level.

Carry these around, like a farmer, or a strongman competitor:

I hate UPS. Before i got everything shipped the Lyceum i would always get "3rd and Final notice slips" on what i believe was really their first attempt. Getting to Maspeth by subway and bus and then getting back with exercise equipment is NO fun.

So the Pendlay bar gets the Yoon seal of approval. I was actually hesitant to get them because the price was so good. Do they have decent whip?
