    I understand your annoyance. Chances are good the neighbors have no idea how much noise is reaching your apartment, and remember, they're getting even less rest than you.

    It could be. It could also be a side-effect of the high reps, i.e., you lost focus or gutted out your last reps with bad form. It could also be something unrelated to your work-outs, such as...

    Different forms produce different effects. Changing your grip changes the action on the body.

    For me, the overhand grip is very hard on my elbows unless I'm hanging from something bigger than a...

    I suffered from Golfer's Elbow a couple of years back. I bought a TheraFlex bar, but it didn't help me much. Here's what did:

    1. Hold a 2.5 lbs. (1kg) barbell plate in your hand, end of fingers...

    Aikido is also a fine way to learn how to tumble and fall. It's gentler than judo, as well.

    The fat loss is from diet changes. Calisthenics is resistance training, not sorcery.

    The most useful strength exercises must complement whatever you're doing in CrossFit. For example, pistols are a decent leg strengthening exercise, but if that week's CrossFit includes air squats...

    Correcting for Morton's Toe

    I've always been amused by my Morton's toe: my second toes are longer than my big toes, especially on my left foot. It runs in my mother's side of the family, and we amuse ourselves by grabbing...

    There's no right answer. Try them out, see what you think. For me, jumping squats lead to too much bounce out of the bottom, which jars my knees and ankles.

    If you work in an office, I suggest switching from a sitting desk to a standing desk. Sitting all day is extremely bad for your health, not just your weight. A standing desk will improve your...

    Gymnasts. No one questions the strength required to hold an iron cross or ride the pommel horse. On television, gymnasts look huge, but most of them are small. Their low bodyfat and tight clothing...

    Do we have much evidence for carry-over from pistols to deadlifts and squats? I haven't heard many stories about "I did pistols with [decent reps or weight], and I squatted [decent number] on my...

    I would buy a heavier KB for now. You'll use it more than a matching bell.

    I wouldn't practice with 2 KBs until you get good with 1. For example, don't bother practicing double KB cleans until...

    I think it would help to know where you stalled out. There's a big difference between stalling out before getting to 3 reps of something and stalling out before getting to 15 reps.

    Not likely.



    I'd feel ridiculous if I were 5'5" and 250 lbs. I couldn't buy clothes off the rack anywhere (it's hard enough as is). I'd scare off business partners and clients. I'd stick out...
