Re: My Weightlifting Shoe Reviews (VS, Pendlay, Adidas, Nike, Reebok)

Perfect, thanks for the input. My lifts have been improving massively in the Nano's, just wanted to make sure.

Re: Gloves

Thanks for the help!

I am thinking about some wrist sweat bands as well to prevent the chalk from coming off.

Looks like the best solution may just be to suck it up and buy more Athletic Tape....

Re: Gloves

Got some Rocktape today on my hand at my box when I went in for the WOD...
