I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

comment Does daily crossfit excercise and a paleo diet reduce heart disease?
I think this is too broad. It's not nutrition that makes me think this should be closed--it's the fact that it requires lengthy advanced chemistry.

comment Adding power to my pull-ups?
@DavidR Linear progress with weighted chins is, by all accounts I've seen, veeeeery different from, say, bench press. Less "add 5 pounds each workout" and more "when you can do 3 sets of 10 at that weight, add 5 pounds". I don't see anything wrong with 3 sets weighted as long as the reps stay in the 7-10 range; my mistake was letting the total reps for a workout drop below 15.

comment Adding power to my pull-ups?
@VPeric 1) I could be wrong on kipping! I'd get a second opinion and decide for yourself. 2) Push-up, jump, land, grab bar, pull-up, repeat. Oof. 3) I don't know "chest pull-ups". Are those where you touch your chest to the bar? I consider that to be the pull-up ideal. Perfect form.

comment Adding power to my pull-ups?
Do you mean power in the specific sense of speed-strength? And if so, are you looking for peak power (e.g. upper body explosiveness) or maximum power output (Crossfit's goal of maximum sustained work over time)?
