Re: Jump Rope Recommendations

I had been using a simple speed rope form Buy Jump Ropes, but the bearings finally wore out after a couple years use.

I just ordered the SR-1F Froning rope from Rogue, can't wait to try it out.

Re: Are Kipping HSPU really more work done

Crossfit ISN'T about strength?! Since when? The Clean & Jerk ladder is just as important as the Pool/Bar MU WOD or the Zigzag Sprint. If you're not strong, you're not going to compete at that...

Re: Running

Just had the same thought...if you can run 3 miles at a 6:00 pace, you're blowing away a lot of folks. Now, if you don't LIKE running, and therefore feel like you need work, then I don't know what...

Re: Anyone like to WOD outside in the sun? Or rain? Or cold?.

I'm a big fan of outdoor WODing, but that may just be a product of necessity from Crossfit during deployments. We'll see when I get home if the sentiment still applies...
