Another vote for Rogue SR-1, love mine. I like the longer handles to get more speed from the rope, and the bearings in that thing will spin forever. I also tend to point my hands downward when i do...

Re: I'm back to square one with my WODs thanks Wendler System and stupid me!!!!

In my opinion, if you're going to do a strength cycle like Wendler you should do it for 3-6 months at a time. Not much strength is going to be gained in lifting steadily for only 1 month, whereas...

Re: Level 1 Question

IMO the test is not at all as hard as some people make it out to be. I realize that some people are better "test-takers" than others, but to me the exam was really straightforward. Only one or two of...

Re: Two a day question

Re: wod shorts with side pockets

Hylete all the way, a little pricey but worth every penny. Even have a 2 year replacement warranty on them, cant beat that.

Re: competition debate

Re: Vending Machines

Re: Optimal Strategy for Team Thorium WOD 1

Sounds like a fun little workout Chris :D. I would say around 50% would be a good starting point for something to rep out. If it was me, id do a dry run of the workout with my partner to see how...

Re: Vending Machines

Look around there are tons of...

Re: Shirts?

My favorites are the AA 50/50 and the Next Level tri-blend. Both fit true to size and fit me well at 6' 195, and neither shrink enough to tell a difference.

I am not a fan of the AA tri-blend...

Re: I hate my new job

If this is a serious post(i.e. not trolling) what about it do you hate? New company, different geographical location, different shift hours?
