Oly shoes for burpees/DU's?
 
What's the consensus on wearing your lifting shoes for things such as burpees or double unders? For example there was a CF Football WOD a few days ago that called for 185 pound power cleans and double unders.

I have no issues with double unders in lifting shoes. I would probably ditch them if I had to burpees though. I would say this is one of those things that is just about whatever you personally prefer, whatever gets you through the workout the fastest.

I would wear the lifting shoes bc of the weight being lifted. DU, burpees, etc. is all body weight. Last thing you wamt is to be off balance in a lift when your fatigued. If this starts to bother your feet/shins, buy a pair of flat crosstrainers or running shoes to compensate. I personally like indoor soccer shoes.
