Re: Looking for shoe input and suggestions

Don't overlook the speed tr by reebok. My coach has a pair and said they were reebok's answer to the metcon 1. They're basically a nano 5 that's better to run in. If I remember they are only 100...

Manilla vs. Poly dacron rope

I found some poly dacron rope at a good price but I've never used it for climbing, how does it compare to manilla?

Re: PR Thread

18 unbroken DU's, 10 unbroken HSPU, and 8 unbroken butterfly pull ups. Pull ups could've been more but my hand re tore. The last month has been pretty awesome for these movements.

Re: Weak Deadlift

Also, you may have weak grip strength or upper back. Try farmer's walks, dead lift holds, and pendlay rows. Elite FTS and lift big, eat big have some good info on helping your dead.

Re: Weak Deadlift

Pulling with bent arms will lead to a bicep tear. As was already said, don't jerk the weight off the floor.

Re: Looking for a good Crossfit shoe

What about the Under Armour Toxic? Saw them on the UA site and they look pretty good.

Another shoe to add is the 5.11 trainer shoe.

Re: Prep for a 1rm back squat?

IMO it's a battle between making sure you're warmed up enough vs being to fatigued to max. Do a general warm up to get the blood flowing, mobility work and then build up with low rep sets- 135x5,...

Re: Deadlift stalls 2-3" from the top

You might not be activating your glutes enough. Try some cable pull throughs and heavy kettlebell swings during your warmup.

Games events

Seems like the last couple years the ladder events have been pretty popular but I think the Snatch/ C&J have been used a little too much. What are the odds we'll see a deadlift ladder this year? How...

Re: DIY Farmers Walk Handles for $42? Yup!

David, mine are the ones in the video Mark linked in his post. They are a bit more expensive but I liked the way they came together.

Re: DIY Farmers Walk Handles for $42? Yup!

I built ones similar to those but I used more pipe so it was a little more expensive. I'll try to post a pic. I've had 155# per hand on them so far.
