Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Rich must be making bank off endorsements to give up $250,000 payday since he makes winning the games look so damn easy!

Re: 2014 Games Season Thoughts?

sounds cool.. last chance qualifier could be an extra heat during the swim and row event this year. Top 3 of that heat gets to continue on.. Bottom 7 gets cut.

Re: Staying with competetion plates or switching?

Re: Rep Fitness Barbell and Bumper Plates

any thoughts on their competition bumpers? I'm tempted to pick up a set - about $200 cheaper than rogue with shipping. The competition bumpers all tend to be identical with just different printing.

Re: New Home Gym Set Up

do your boxes just lay flat on one another or is there some sort of locking mechanism that connects the top boxes to the lower boxes? also, is the top of the boxes just 3/4" ply wood?

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread
