    sorry , that happened to you , I wonder if that was a real crossfit affiliate, there are a lot of imitations out there, hopefully that is what that was. Anyhow looks like the plan you have in place is working great , so keep up the good work.

    With crossfit , there are still some movements that i still have to stay away from. For example we do a lot of 24" and 30" box jumps, Jumping up onto the box is not the problem it's when i jump back down off the box that my knees start to feel it. It is the hard impact coming down off the box , so now when i come off the box i just step down instead, another thing I found that make my knees swell is doing double unders(that is were when you jump rope , you jump high enough to do 2 revolutions with the rope per jump) So i have to jump extra high to get that accomplished double unders. So now i just do regular single jump ropes and those don't bother me at all.Probably the biggest thing that helped my knees is the amount of light squats and sometimes heavy squats that we do . The muscles in my legs have never been this strong which in turn takes the strain off my knees. As far as being competitive, crossfit is a great fit, and that is what drives me also. don't get me wrong not everyone there cares what the time is on the board or how many reps they did , but there will be plenty of chances to compete with the other guys on the board who seem to put up similar numbers as you . They may even come it at a different time than you, but you see there times and you push to beat there time , and the next morning that guy is checking out your time also. Its a friendly type competition. After a couple of months of getting stronger and faster you will be pushing to always be close to the top of the white board. There are crossfit gyms everywhere, when you look for one make sure they have enough equipment to do all the crossfit moves, some gyms are just garage type gyms with very limited equipment and very few members. But you also don't want one that is to crowded either . our box has about 75 member's and about 3000 sf, with 3 trainers. Each class averages 8-14 people. there is a 5,6,7,8,9am class and 4:30,5:30,6:30,7:30pm classes. So make sure they offer plenty of options for class times. Our gym charges 150$ per month unlimited usage, but that is a lot of personal training with the correct way to do the lifts. good luck

    did you do the baseline test today? run 400 meters , 40 air squats, 30 situps,20 pushups, 10 pull ups all for time? Today our wod( workout of the day) was extreme 5 rounds for time; deadlift 225lbs 12 reps 20 pull ups clean and jerk 135lbs 12 reps knees to elbows 20 reps (while hanging from pull up bar) That is 100 pull ups, 60 deadlifts,60 clean and jerks,100 knees to elbows. all for time.ouch that was the rx weight, all movements and weights can be scaled if needed. My arms have been sore all day , not all of the wods are this difficult. stick with crossfit , after the first week the soreness wont be bad, the results are amazing

    Opinions on these Radios

    Sorry the radio is called a baofeng uv 5r radio
  12. A friend of mine told me about these radios , so i checked them out on youtube and they sell them on Ebay for around 50 -55 $ each , they also sell lots of accessories for them. Does anybody have any experience with these radios? Judged by the reviews they look pretty good especially for the price.

    I did p 90x about 3 years ago < it's a butt kicker, especially if you hit it hard. Crossfit works well for me because you are competing against others in the gym who are at your same level and ability.classes are fairly small 8-12 people per class so you get a lot of 1 on 1 training, It,s similar to p90x in that you do a lot of pull ups, push ups,sit ups, Olympic lifts , running , rowing , squats , deadlifts ,all done for time, or number of reps to work on metabolic conditioning and strength. just google crossfit games, I work out at crossfit Mesa, on greenfield north of mcdowell. there are crossfit gyms all over the valley.
