Re: Stall mats dirty or not?

+1 for the mats at Tractor Supply Co.

My mats do not seem to get me/my clothes dirty, but I'll be darned if they don't get themselves dirty. After a few weeks your almost impossibly shiny black mats...

Re: Rogue R3 Rack 24" or 30"

My bolt-together has the standard 24" configuration, and honestly I do not find space inside the rack to be an issue. I think I have smashed into the bottom of the J-cups only once, and that was...

Oops, I completely forgot to come back and post the pictures. My apologies to everyone.

Re: Reducing noise during deadlifts

Another possible option is to decouple your platform from the floor underneath it. I can't remember your exact layout, but it might be that the plywood of your platform makes noise against the slab...

Re: Reducing noise during deadlifts

Do you deadlift on your Olympic platform (I think I saw a platform in your garage when I met you last year)?

I know even my cheap bumper plates are far quieter than my Ivanko iron plates, though...

F/S: Reebok Nano 4.0, size 11.5, New in the Box, $65

I bought a pair of Nano 4.0, they ended up being the wrong size and due to other obligations, I have missed the deadline in which to return them.

The shoes are new in the box, purchased directly...

Re: Nano 4s $60 on Reebok site

I used the that guide and my foot length was US size 11.

I ordered a US 11.5 and after receiving it realized I should have ordered size 12

I typically wear US 11 in most shoes

Re: Nano 4s $60 on Reebok site

Well, despite reading reviews on their fit and sizing up I still ended up with a shoe that is too small. No Nano 4.0 left in my size, so I'll have to return these outright and just give up on trying...

Re: Good Sandbag?

My advice is to get the cheapest sandbag shell that will suit your needs. If you need a bag with handles on every side, then shop accordingly. If you only need handles on one side, then a duffle bag...

Re: Nano 4s $60 on Reebok site

I've been curious about the Nanos for a while, decided I'd give them a try. Ended up just under $65 with tax for me. Only 3 colors available in my size (11.5), but I don't care about color.

Re: FS: Rogue Fitness Castro Rig + More

If I lived closer I would be interested in this rig! Just out of curiosity, how well did that thing do outdoors in the rain and humidity? I know the tubes are powder coated, but are there any signs...

Re: Why has this message board gone so quiet?

Having served as a global moderator and admin on several (now defunct) forums, I think it has more to do with the format than anything else. Understand when I say format, I'm not picking on the color...

Re: Extra squats

If you struggle with squats due to a lack of strength, then talk to your coach at the box about helping you put together a strength training cycle to improve them.

Re: Just getting started in South Carolina

Welcome!

With a background in powerlifting and bodybuilding, is it safe to assume you already have a pretty good handle on the basic barbell lifts (squat, deadlift, overhead press and bench...

Re: Ice bath/cold soak - to do, or not to do?

Not much interest in this topic I suppose...

I tend to agree with the other posters in the thread, in that I am not really a fan of cold therapy. I don't mind hopping into a 78F swimming pool, but...

Re: Westside strength routine I just wrote for a CF athlete

Mind if I borrow the program for myself? Just kidding... kind of (I'm on a quest for strength at the moment, and your program has many similarities to what I have programmed for myself).

Ice bath/cold soak - to do, or not to do?

For Sale: Starter Package (squat stand, bench, barbell) - Modesto, CA

Clearing up space in the garage and getting rid of items I no longer use.

I have a basic squat stand that adjusts from low enough to decline bench press, to high enough for squats and presses. It's...

Re: What do you wear while you CrossFit?

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...

Re: Searching for WOD crew

If I lived closer I would be. I'm in the same boat as you in sounds like - new in town, have equipment and some experience, but nobody to share it with.

Re: Iron Cowboy

If he completes even the first week's worth, I'd be very impressed. Not only is the event itself insanely taxing on the body, but the travel to a new state each day adds even more insanity to it all....
