“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”

WAY TO RUIN MY NBA DREAMS.
I WAS JUST GOING TO PLAY SOME IM BALL THIS YEAR, THEN GET SPOTTED BY SCOUTS, AND THEN GO TO THE NBA TO START AS A POINT GUARD FOR THE PISTONS NEXT YEAR.
WHY MUST YOU CRUSH MY HOPES.
|3 days 10 hours ago||Yeah, one of the biggest||
Yeah, one of the biggest things with crossfit is the gym makes a big difference. It's incredibly easy to become a crossfit certified trainer (it only takes a weekend seminar, if I'm not mistaken), so if you go to a bad gym, it could end up that the person who is instructing you knows less about the lifts that you're about to do than you do

I know this is probably not a new realization for anyone else here, but it just struck me that the Crossfit Games are a brilliant advertising scheme. You put these world class (or cloes to world class) athletes on TV and have them do wildly impressive feats of athleticism, under the banner of a workout system/gym. Essentially saying that "hey if you work out here and pay XXX dollars a month, you can do this", despite the fact that most of the people their got to that point athletically using systems that were not crossfit (not to say that all did, but I would definitely guess that most did)

I do as well. I took a lot of what I learned in crossfit and adapted into my workouts. I'm now doing a fairly standard 3x5, but I throw in some crossfit stuff for warm ups/more aerobic stuff on off days. But when I lift heavy, I take my time. A lot of CF workouts are pretty good/entertaining though.
That being said, the stuff that those competitve crossfitters can do in competition is incredibly impressive.
|3 days 11 hours ago||The thing is though, I feel||
The thing is though, I feel like kipping pull-ups emphasize people learning how to manipulate the exercise in order to minimize the effort needed, rather than make the workout difficult and maximize gainz. When I did CF, I always avoided kipping, and if I couldn't do any more pull ups, I'd grab a resistence band to make it a bit easier. I kind of emphasizes one of the core concepts of crossfit I'm at odds with, the idea that what is most important is being efficient and fast with your workout, rather than going slower and getting the most out of it. This idea causes people to focus on rushing rather then slowing down and focusing on correct form, and bad form with heavy weights almost invariebly leads to injuries.
|3 days 11 hours ago||I did crossfit for a couple||
I did crossfit for a couple months last year, and I really enjoyed a lot of it—great atmosphere, good trainers, nice people, awesome motivation, etc. But in the end I just really disliked the core concepts, specifically doing heavy and complex lifts for time. It's a good way to get in shape, but an even better way to get hurt, and for someone like me who has messed up my back in the past, I couldn't take the risk.
I feel like kipping pull ups are like the signature "crossfit is stupid" thing people think of, and while they look ridiculous, they probably won't hurt you. They stupidest thing they do is doing things like Snatches and Clean and Jerks for time. After a few minutes, even the better lifters displayed a marked loss in form, and when you do heavy complex lifts with bad form, bad thing happen. And even a gym like mine—where the trainers were pretty vigilant about form—isn't safe from that happening, when it is the core concept of the workout seems to neglect form.
If it wasn't for the risk of injury (and the fact that it's really expensive), I would've loved to keep doing it. It's a lot of fun, and fits in with my competitive nature.

Another way to do it, which works for all websites, not just instagram, is right click the original image on instagram and select "copy image URL" or something like that. Then after that, just copy the web address and paste using the image button on the right hand side of the toolbar.
If I'm not mistaken (in laymens terms, as I have no idea what any of the technical terms for this are, beause I don't know anything about HTML or web design) every website that uses HTML (flash things don't work) works like this: each image has its own web address, and is then embeded into the webpage that your seeing it. So like these instagram pictures have their own location, and then are just embeded on the main instagram page. So by copying the URL you are copying the place location of the image, and then having MGoBlog retreive and embed the image from that site.

I guess that makes sense, and it's a noble cause (quite possibly the noblest) but I don't know if I'd have it in me to marry such a Michigan-less heathen...

I'M ON TIME FOR A POSBANG FOR ONCE. SAY WHAT.
Everything is going well here, I've got one more week in Africa before I head back stateside. If anyone ever gets a chance to go to Ghana, I'd highly recommend it. Awesome country and the people here are great. I also met Chris Bosh here. That was a weird, yet awesome, turn of events.
Also, it's just starting to hit the point for me where I'm getting hyped up for CFB season. I love this and hate this as well, mostly because we still have over a month to wait until we play that first game which we are all ruing so greatly.
I am still not completely sure what to think about this team, but IMHO if our O-Line can pull itself together, we could be very good. However, even if that happens, I don't think we'd compete for the B1G, mostly because our schedule is brutal (home/away game wise). I think our defense has the possibility to be great—as long as our safeties turn out to be okay—and our offense completely depends on the O-Line, but I think an average O-Line could yeild a pretty good offense. I am far to excited to see what Peppers and Funchess can do this season, and my expectations for them are probably way to high (if they both don't win the Heisman trophy, imma be pissed).

Baseball is great.
Football is great.
Soccer is great.
Hockey is great.
Basketball is great.
Pretty much all sports are great if you take the time to learn about them/watch them for a bit. I really don't get the irrational hate for one sport on this blog, as pushed by a few select MGoUsers. It's the offseason, there's nothing wrong with soccer stuff being poster here during literally the BIGGEST TOURNAMENT IN THE WORLD. Why people bitch about it so much is completely beyond me.
Oh by the way, despite the fact that we had a day off. THE TOURNAMENT IS STILL GOING.
