Topic: Why a rest day?

Kevin, theres something I've been wanting to ask you for a while about rest. I check out the crossfit site from time to time and I see that they typically have just one rest day over the course of a week. Does that really leave room for muscle growth? I mean obviously they get some serious results s...

I've actually had these same thoughts. On one hand I look at an overweight nutritionist like a mechanic whose car is always broken down. The thought being that "hey if you can't fix your car, why would I trust you with mine?" On the other hand you can look at it sorta like they are a basketball or f...

Hey Kevin, I've been wondering about those kipping pullups they do on crossfit. Is there any kind of advantage to doing them that way? It seems to me that as far as a workout is concerned, doing pullups without swaying your body back and forth would be more beneficial simply because it is more chall...

I wish I had a link for you (I'll look for it later) but I just went to Academy and picked up a really nice pull up bar for ~$15. Its solid too. It has two brackets that mount in the door frame with 5 screws (you will need a power drill to get them in there) and then the bar slides in. But just run ...

I had an idea thought I'd toss it your way. Just to preface, I know absolutely zip about website design or what it costs to run/maintain one so if my idea is absurd in that regard I apologize. Anyways, I think it would be cool to allow people to set up an account on the site and create a simple inte...

Alot of you might have seen this site already but in case some have not: http://www.fitday.com/ Its a pretty cool site for keeping track of what you eat. Plus, you can make your profile public so others can see your logs as well. Also, if a particular food is not in their database you can easily add...

Oh ya, I gotta say one thing. I'm in decent shape and not too heavy (6', 178 lbs.) but for the life of me, I can't do a handstand. Any good guides or something to help out? I tried against a wall but I think I'm just afraid to totally commit and throw my legs all the way up or something, heh.

Patience is important like others have said. But what about just going through the myriad of bodybuilding, nutrition, etc., forums that exist and mentioning it there? I think the idea of being able to do your workouts at home has alot of appeal (it did to me anyways). Maybe you could advertise on th...

good stuff, its nice to mix in different excercises. I was going to start doing some kettlebell training and mixing it all up somehow. These new workouts sound pretty cool and will help out a ton just by giving me more options. Thanks!

ya, nothing against real food, just trying to get more protein in the diet. Maybe I'm aiming for too much protein though. I have read some recommendations of 1g per pound of body weight. So I weigh 178 lbs and 178g of protein seems like quite a bit. In just my normal diet though I get pretty close t...

Protein supplements

To get more protein in my diet I have been thinking about maybe trying out some protein supplements. I was wondering if anyone here has any advice on which to try out and more importantly, how exactly to fit them into your diet. Do you all feel they are even necessary? Thanks in advance for any advi...
