Re: 2016 Black Friday

XTrain and Again Faster (X owns AF).
Nothing from Rogue, but I know they normally do a Matte Black Friday - little cost savings on equipment, but shipping for $5.

Re: Recommend permanent marker for engraving name on rubber bumper plates

Why not a paint paint and then spray a clear over it? Permanent Markers won't last on a bumper plate. (Neither will a paint pen alone).

Hoping I don't have the same issue when I move. only one layer of stall mats.
Thinking about getting hi-temps next to offset the HGs.

Re: Best Timer for iPad-Android

I started using "seconds". Nice timer and have not tried the paid version.

Re: Developing a new crossfit shoe for a major manufacturer, need your opinions!

Large sizes.
And something for those with large feet.

Not all male crossfitters are 5'8", 180#s.

Re: Teaching the Squat

Can you try squatting to a wallball?
And how low is he going? Is it perhaps a depth issue (going too far losing the lumbar) causing the slide forward and into the toes

I ask since I am that guy. ...

Re: Hmb

I take it immediately postWOD and before extra work (GHD, Good mornings, etc.) I also take 2 scoops on Nitrean+ after Results. I tried combining them, but my taste buds didn't like it.
