Smart phone app

Last night in our strength & conditioning class we did a "Death by Slamball" WOD that had a 2 burpee buy in before each round. Those familiar with "Death by 10m" know the drill except in this case...

Re: Nano 3.0

I hope they have a good variety of colors for men because that whole grey and black combo that Castro was wearing does not look good at all.

Don't know if you'd call it an injury

It's something that nags me from time to time. Now it's flared up again. I think it stems from a hard jolt my left knee took when I came down from a layup on the basketball court. I was icing and...

Re: Wide foot = hard shoe search

Nick,

I found that the Nano 2.0 standard shoe is fine. You might have to go up a half size but for me, the same size as my dress shoe worked because they (the dress shoes) are also a wider width....

2013 Pendlay shoes

Re: Wide foot = hard shoe search

Thanks Seth for your input. I've heard good things about the Romaleos with the exception of their price point. That's a bit out of my wheelhouse at the moment. I may look into the Do-Wins. I may...

Wide foot = hard shoe search

I have a wide foot. I'm talking EE to EEE. My previous minimalist shoe was a Puma with a very thin sole. It did spread a bit. After 2 years, I've just added a pair of the Reebok Nano 2.0s. The...

Re: Shoulder Impingment comes and goes

When ever I pick up a PVC or broom stick, I do figure-8s to warm up the shoulders as well as passing it over head to the glutes. It's just a little annoying because I can feel it catch in my left...

Shoulder Impingment comes and goes

I've had this recurring shoulder impingment issue going on for a few years. It hasn't bothered me for a long time until a week or so ago. I think it was the result of doing snatches or C&Js.

Reviving old leather powerlifting belt

I have an old powerlifting belt from back in the day that I haven't worn in forever. It's gotten stiff and just a little bit moldy from being in storage and lack of use. I'd like to revive it.

Re: Looking for Crossfit Games Tickets

I got in just under the wire I think. At least I have a receipt that says I bought a 3-day ticket the day before the 'sold out' notice went up. But I still haven't received any confirmation on the...

Post deadlift treatment for that low back stiffness

I usually use ice combined with some foam rolling and mild stretching to deal with that 'tender' low back that often comes a day or two after deadlifting. Usually after sitting for long periods, it...

Frequency of lifts (how often do you do them?)

Prior to Crossfit, I'd back squat on the average of once/week using a 4-week progression where the max was on the 3rd week and the 4th was very light. Now with all the other different movements...

Re: Front squat and Back Squat 1RM Differential

Wow!! I really need to get to work on my front squat. I'm only at 54% :( Prior to crossfit, I never did them so they are still relatively new. My rack technique needs work with regards to wrist and...

Re: plyo boxes

since the tapered ones are more stable, if you can get a picture of the plans of say a 24" tapered box, then project it on the wall and move the projector to where it yields a 50" box, you now have a...

Re: weight lifting shoes

Back in the day when I was powerlifting, people either wore ballet slippers or wrestling shoes.
