Re: Thoughts on this Sled

Or this alternative cost me about $30 in plumbing hardware and four pieces of scrap lumber. When the runners wear down I'll unscrew them and put two new ones on. Works perfectly!

Re: Best GHD?

I have it, found it on craigslist for $150, couldn't pass it up. It's adjustable, split pad design, could be sturdier but isn't bad. I just went to the website to check the price and saw it was...

Re: GHD - How does this one look?

I just picked up the $449 one for $150 through Craigslist. The GHD had been pretty pretty far down on my wish list due to space, cost etc. I figured I'd just wait and get the York when I had...

Re: 400m

I'm pretty fortunate, starting at my driveway (about 30' from my garage door) it is exactly .25 miles around the loop I live on! Unfortunately it is not level, I alternate directions.

Re: 100M World Record

I thought I read he was mainly a 400m guy and wasn't sure he'd do the 100 in the Olympics! If he works on his start and that first 10-20m look out

Re: Designing a competition that shows superiority of crossfit

I was just recalling this workout (challenge?) recently. My Crossfitting training partner and I gave it a shot, 2-3 years ago, IIRC. We both hit in the 4:50's and I'm not sure my partner had done...

Re: Homemade Jump rope for speed!!

Jeff, I made one of exactly this design. It's a fast rope, the only problem I had is that over time the pvc cap wore through the cable. Not a huge problem, I just readjusted the crimp. Have you seen...
