Re: Crossover Symmetry

I think the key point missed here is this

Do the protocol every day...

With all mobility and areas like this everyday care produces the best results.

For a box you have stations and wall posters which make it easier to assist members in doing mobility every day to an area that crossfit often overworks.

For the individual at home, if you don't do mobility / foam Rollin everyday now at home, do you see yourself doing this daily just because you spent 200$?

I saw these years ago through baseball stuff. They work.

That said, I know I don't do enough mobility at home, so spending 200$ for me isn't worth it.

Yes you can make a cheaper version.

For a box this looks "ghetto" and is harder to get people to do. For a home person this is less of an issue.

So the question of does it work, the answer is yes, if you follow the program. If you just leave it mounted to the wall and don't use, then no it is a 200$ piece of art.

Here is a link to a review I wrote of Crossover Symmetry's H.I.I.T. System after a four month test drive: http://therxreview.com/review-crosso...-i-i-t-system/ (WFS)

Re: Crossover Symmetry

I decided to try and create my own DIY version of the Crossover Symmetry System. I basically just purchased some bands off amazon and found the program by googling.

There's also detailed instructions on the link in my signature.

Re: Crossover Symmetry

The thing is that if you don't need all the cables, its really not that expensive. A single pair of cords cost $40 and the straps (4 of them) cost $40. So for $120 you get 4 straps (2 for shoulder height and 2 for knee height), 1 pair of heavy cords and 1 pair of light corcords. I went with 15lbs and 7 lbs.

Re: Crossover Symmetry

That's a great point. In reality I only use two of the cables as well, but my wife tried p90x years ago and had the bands left over, so I just decided to buy another whole set. I'm going to add that to my instructions though. Thanks Snir.

no problem. i do wish that they would sell the exercise charts separately but it doesn't look like they do.

If you search a bit on the internet, you'll be able to find pictures or videos showing the chart as well.

The cords at our box are mounted to our yoke, so you can just slide the set of cords to eye vs. knee height. If mounted in a home gym, just put two pairs of eye bolts in the wall, one at eye height, one at knee height, and just remove and re-clip as needed.
