Re: What rx jump rope to buy for open?

A mid to heavy rope (Elite, Buff) is great for beginners. It's easier to "feel" where the rope is. It is also easier to spin a little slower while the rope does not "collapse" on itself, which...

Re: The CrossFit log

I got to swing a couple of these around at the Games. I think the women's were 10" and the men's were 12" diameter, and about 30-36" long.

I want to say the length was a little flexible, as they...

Re: Hanging A Rope from Garage Rafters

That (what looks like a) 2x4 running perpendicular to the ridge is called a collar tie/collar beam, and is actually there for dynamic loads. It's designed to prevent the rafters from lifting up...

Re: Athlete Jerseys

I spoke to a Reebok associate last weekend about just this. My GF has been dying for an Akinwale shirt for two years now.

Re: How's this deal?

Check your local Tractor Supply Company or farm supplier. Looks like TSC in SoCal is ~$35 new.

As for any stench, I would think a good heavy bleach/degraser cleaning/scrubbing and a day in the...

Re: 50% off Inov8!

Sam, thanks for the link! A new pair of Inov8's on the way. Can't beat "experimenting" with a new pair of $140 shoes, for only $50!

Since I've been wearing 195s or 230s for 2+ years now, and I'm...

Re: Speed rope storage

Have you tried some hose reel hangers? Something like this:

It's wide enough of an arch to not kink up the ropes, and deep enough that you should be able to put quite a few on it, before it gets...

Re: Help with kettlebell squat please

You're definitely getting deep enough, deep enough that you're staring to "butt wink", which isn't good, as it's the loss of lumbar curve. You should be able to get rid of the wink by stopping an...

Re: Crossfit Total Gone Bad

My coach did something like that for me at my first Oly competition.

Having no real idea, and nervous as all get-up, he had my warmups figured out, and it was basically "go snatch that, three...

Re: Looking for Crossfit Games Tickets

Does anyone know if they will still be setting tickets at the gate? I'm pretty sure they did that last year (but they also don't think they "sold out" prior to the event).

It would really suck...

Re: Inov8 F-Lite 195

I've found that they run pretty true to their size. I have both the 195's and the 230's, both size 10. I was sized for the 230's on-site at a CrossFit event, and purchased the 195's online the next...

Re: Workout log app

I have the same issue, except on my iPad2, when shooting video of myself/coach/others.

Thankfully, the Griffin Survivor cases (on both iPhone and iPad) protect them, and clean up is easy. :)

Re: S3 weight location for kipping

edit: epic-reading fail. I basically just recapped what you said. Adding the vertical storage would help reduce the movement of the S-3.

In short, Yes. Moving the weight to the...

Re: Rogue vs Again Faster

I've got the Again Faster 20kg Team Barbell. It's a nice bar, but the knurling is a little sharp (I'm sure it will be for any new bar), but the grip on it is nice. The AF bumpers spin real nice on...
