Re: Crossfit geting a bad rep!

Who the heck has ever heard of transformetrics? And are they sponsored by reebok and have commercials on prime time TV? Nope.

So who cares what they think.

Vest

Any good inexpensive weighted vests out there? Looking for a heavy one, like 60-80 lbs. I've seen the xvest but they are wicked expensive. I would like high quality.

Ideas?

Re: Training to Failure

Chris mason, power lifters seem to be pretty big dudes. From your experience, have you gained more muscle size from strength training or hypetrophy based routines (bodybuilding style)?

Just curious

Re: Am i getting weaker or just unlucky?
