Re: Gym bags...

I have the Gear Bag Core. By far it is the best bag I've ever owned...and I've owned quite a few. Best part is my gear does not get stinky if I accidentally leave it in there damp. This is what I...

Re: Pendlay HD bushing bar review!

I love my Pendlay bushing bar. I've been using it for about 6 months. Pendlay suggests WD40 and a plastic bristled brush to maintain the bar. I cleaned it last week for the first time, chalk came...

Re: how much is too much?

60% is LOW. I follow Catalyst Athletics and most reps of ANYTHING starts at 70% unless you are doing something unusual or a brand new lifter. Low rep/moderate to heavy weight squats is how you...

Re: Will it ever get better?

I used to be horrible in my front rack, tight shoulders. I started stretching like the video showed and after a while, the front rack became natural.

Re: Best Gloves...

I use them for rope climbs and high rep pull-ups only. We have white nylon climbing ropes and the gloves stick to them like glue. Bar work doesn't tear up my hands much, even deadlifts. I did try...

Re: My back squat has been stuck for 1 year

I had this exact issue about a 1.5 years ago. I was 6'2" 235lbs and my BS was stalled at 360lbs. From about 2010-2012 I just could not break it. CrossFit alone was not enough to break through. I...

Re: Clean technique

I found that doing cleans from blocks (the bar is mid-thigh) helped me get comfortable getting under the bar.

Re: Olympic lifts and bench press?

Doing SOME bench will not likely affect anything negatively but not likely do much positive either. I will tell you that doing lots of heavy bench WILL 100% negatively affect your shoulder mobility....

Re: Front Squat

Your stance is too wide. The outside of your foot and heel are coming off the ground when coming up from the bottom. Feet should be hip-ish width, same position as the clean/snatch receiving...

Re: Collarbone Bruise: Padded Shirt

Your elbows are not going high enough at the finish. I used to have that problem until I forced my elbows up in the font rack position. Doing that lets the bar rest on my deltoids and off the...

Re: CrossFit Weightlifting Course VS USAW

I've been to the CF cert but a friend of mine has been to both. The best part of the CF cert is that YOU teach each other. I mean of course there are the lead instructors that teach you the lifts. ...

Arms are bending early. That back could not be more rounded at the setup.

You were getting extension for the most part. Maybe just a hint more but overall a good pull.

Re: Finally! The Adipower in New Colors

Its a very minor difference compared to my Adipowers but makes it look so much different. Its likely that there is no change on the shoes that get delivered.

Re: Horrendous Bruising After Power Cleans

Yes, you should not be hitting your thighs so low as the bar is coming up. A video would help pinpoint the problem.

Re: To belt up or not?

I throw on my belt when my lifts hit 75-80% 1RM and above. It's not a magical injury prevention device. What it does do is allow your ab muscles something to push against so when you perform you...

Re: Zercher Squats

I've done these before and I was not impressed. I maxed out well under my front squat max. It was HELL on my arm creases and the depth was much more shallow since my elbows hit my knees above...
