Default I need a small favor

I can't post on crossfit, but I wanted to let Lynne Pitts know that she certainly seems to be trying to keep things sane there. It appears that she is frustrated by some of the lunacy of the posters and I just wanted her to know that she is doing fine in my book.

dj84123@yahoo.com

If she is interested in talking.

Thank you.

I'll cut and paste into a PM to Lynne the above message

Done!

Re: Allen
Eh, recently, there's been an above average number of threads about either:
a) someone else having a problem with CrossFit (especially Gym Jones, or just today, the trolling thread posted by Grover Land, arguing the obvious that CF is not the best program to be the best at every possible thing simultaneously, which it seems has been deleted, and Grover banned), or
b) debating ROM vs. Power vs. Work vs. Just Do the Damn WOD.

It's getting a little bit silly.

I guess there are those who need hand holding all the way and there are those who will never trust and take the plunge!

seems like it's been bombarded with posts like that this week, I don't follow the posts there as much as I do here. The post by Grover land caught my attention though.

Maybe I'm just getting better at noticing it now. These "clean vs. power clean" arguments are appearing extremely similar to "Ramar vs. Ramarl"... Ah, fond memories of video game forums...





... and the Ramar is obviously better, though I still prefer my lv200 Ramarl.

I guess I haven't been reading the right places...I tend to stick with Exercises, Digital Coaching and Injuries.

Bah right before leaving for work I noticed Robb Wolf posted in the Nutrition thread and I was going to read it after work but now it's gone!
