What do you wear while you CrossFit?
 
Hey guys,

I posted the same thread in the Equipment section so I apologize if you have seen this before.

I've been following this forum and it has really helped me progress in speed, strength and overall fitness. I've been watching the coverage of Regionals and I see a lot of different accessories the athletes are wearing. I've done some research but am curious as to what your thoughts are?

I've created this survey about some popular products and would love to hear what motivated you for buying them.



Would you mind helping out a fellow CrossFitter?

Thanks everyone!

I completed the survey but know for a fact many CF noobs at a box will go go get sleeves and wrist supports or buy whatever they see their CF heroes wear.

For example, if so and so wears or uses this, they will ask and wonder and want to use the same thing. Even if they don't need it. Monkey see, monkey do.

I use whatever will help me if I have problem areas. I try and not over-do it, as it can become a crutch.

I wear Rehband knee sleeves when doing any sort of lower body stuff. At times, if its heavy Front Squats, Cleans or really heavy Presses, I may wear my Rogue wrist wraps.

Lifting shoes on Olympic days.

I used to wear a belt when training, now I don't use one at all, not even max DL stuff.

Other than that, whatever shirt, shorts, socks, shoes are on hand. Oh..and lots of chalk. Comical amounts.

You'll usually find me in C9 gym shorts (I buy them for $5 to $8 on clearance at Target), a t-shirt and whatever shoes are appropriate for the workout. I have Adidas Powerlift 2.0 shoes for days that I squat or do Olympic lifting, NB Minimus shoes for most everything else and Acics Japan Lightning sprint spikes if I'm doing sprints on a track or on grass.

No wraps, belts, compression wear, or specialty accessories other than shoes. I'm sure some of those fancy items work great, but I've never tried them and probably won't unless I develop a specific need to (such as recovering from injury). When it comes to the latest and greatest gear, ignorance is bliss :o

My thoughts are that most of that stuff is unnecessary. It's a good idea for the competitors to use wraps, braces, etc., considering the high, concentrated volume of movements that they are doing over the course of the games.

I don't think it's necessary to use most of that stuff if you workout at your box 4-5 times per week and don't have a chronic injury.

Tank top, silkies:kicking0: (black or green), and Nike or Asics (depending on the workout).

The only "equipment" I use is wrist wraps and oly lifting shoes when doing oly lifting strength work. I've tried the jerk fit wrist wrap/palm cover combo and found that it's hard for me to grip a pull up bar or olympic bar.

I switch it up between Anarchy Ranch, Clinch Gear and Reebok.

Shoes usually Nano's sometimes Inov-8.

Rope- RX Smart Gear

Food by Primal Cravings.. had to plug them.. they are the best.
