I am thinking about getting one from here:
http://www.prowriststraps.com/

If I were to buy one today it would actually be this model:

If you sign up for the news letter you get 10% off.

The frequency method is explained in the ebook. It's actually the first ebook I have bought. I really would like his conditioning book as well but I'm not willing to shell out the cash for it. If I read right, some time this year or next he is going to release all these ebooks as one big super e-novel. It will have the conditioning book, the LP book, Swole, etc. Don't quote me on that though.

Re: Gslp

I have had 3 chiropractors over the past 6 years and have yet to hear anything positive form using a neck harness. In fact, they all said it does more harm than good and you are not supposed to put load on the neck like that. This all stems from my first chiro I trained at a gym when looking at middle aged men maxing out the hammer strength 3 way neck machine.

Re: Gslp

I'm not sure why neck training isn't more common around crossfit. Having a strong neck is at least as 'functional' as most anything else that's done around here, and is very important from a safety standpoint. Training for the 'unknown and unknowable' (or whatever the saying is) should at least prepare you to take a shot to the head, be that from a foot, fist or something falling from a high shelf, etc.

Coming from a football/wrestling/rugby background, I've always trained my neck. It doesn't take a lot of time or energy, and you get a lot of reward for relatively little effort.

Re: Gslp

The Ironmind neck harness has the reputation for being the very best.

Either way, I'm trying to avoid buying the E-Book at the moment, though its looking more andmore like I'm going to end up doing it....

What I've done...

Started with:

5 x 10 pushups

5 x 5 pullups

Added 1 rep/day on the pushups, 1 per week on the pullups (very strict, no kipping whatsoever).

Today I'm up to 22 pushups, am on hiatus on pullups until I get a bar installed in my new place (hopefully next week).

All sets should be sub maximal. If you get to a point where you're reaching maximal effort, keep the reps the same and add another set.

There is a lot of information if you do a search on the Strength Villain forum.

Re: Gslp

GSLP is a great program, by the way.

I've had a hard time getting regular workouts in this past month, and with this program I've consistently managed to get stronger on my hypertrophy sets almost every week.

The only thing that has struggled is my squat, but that is a whole nother story and an issue that should be alleviated now that I'm moved into my new place and have my home box set up.
