Re: Double Under Crash Course

I'll have to disagree with the "jump high turn the rope really fast" advice.

DUs are most efficiently done with a jump that is no higher than a regular single under. When helping new people to...

Re: How strict are you?

Interesting topic.

I've been doing CF coming up on 3 years and have done SS, PMenu workouts, my affiliate WODs and the mainpage workouts. My best results have come when I've religiously followed...

Re: Pull Up Bar Height

We just moved out of a garage-gym affiliate and into a new box and our pull-up bars at the new place are at 9'. It made a huge difference at first, but now we're all used to the additional height....

Re: studpullup bar

We've got 2 at my affiliate. Rock solid, even with a 250+ guy kipping. Easy to install.

Only gripe is the finish on the bar. I prefer unfinished metal, but for the price and ease of installation,...

Re: Kipping Chin Up Form/Technique

Hi Mischa,

A few thoughts, at the bottom you're not fully extending your arms. Your elbows still are slightly flexed. I find I get the smoothest kip with straight arms - but that just might be me....

Re: Modifying Lynne for home: ring pushups or pseudo planche pushups?

Hi Blair,

I've substituted weighted dips for the BP in Lynne before, usually 45#. Seems to be a close approximation to BW BP; as I tend to get about the same number of reps.

Re: Salt + Torn Calluses: How many times to be fully effective?

I'm a big fan of soaking torn hands in a super-saturated salt water solution.

I've found 2 - 3 times per day for 3 days and I'm usually good as new. In my experience, keeping it moist with...

Re: Rings: Rogue vs. Elite


I've only tried your product once, and it was about 18 months ago.

I should have been a bit more specific and just compared the rogue to the powermax rings directly. With that...

Re: Rings: Rogue vs. Elite

Re: 080619 question


I can understand how you're a bit wary of "getting in the best shape of your life" from doing 1 rep of three workouts.

Today's workout is the CrossFit Total. It presents itself a few...

Re: Final Tweaks to my MEBB routine

Re: Rogue Fitness (Bar, rings, service, etc.)

Hi Bill,

Yes, definitely like the changes on the Duvide dS.

Question, does Duvide manufacture a pure speed rope? the dS is perfectly sufficient for double unders, however it isn't a pure speed...

Re: Which rings should I buy?

i have a set of powermax and rogue.

rogue straps adjust much, much easier. they're just the right diameter, bomb-proof and bill is a pleasure to do business with.

Re: Elite Rings or Xtreme Rings?

If you're interested in durability, get the Rogue Rings. I like them much better than my Powermax rings. That seems to be the consensus with those individuals who have tried both.

Re: What can I sub weighted pullups for?

Swings are not a good sub for pullups.

For weighted pullups you do not need a weight belt, climbing harness, etc. The essentials:

some weights

Re: Duvide Jumpropes

I've had a dS that I purchased from Bill @ Rogue Fitness for a few months now and the thing wears like iron. Plenty fast to do double unders, but it's not a speed rope in the strictest sense.

If your goal is to improve your fran time I'd try some of the following:

15 - 15 - 15 and 9 - 15 - 21 rep schemes with 95lb thrusters and pullups.

I don't think dropping the weight is your...
