Re: Continued tight muscles with L5/S1 Disc bulge

So glad to hear I am not alone!! I experienced a "tweak" to my lower back last Summer while warming up with light weights. Didn't think much of it at the time. I have tweaked my back many times....

Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

Sadly, I just cannot see it happening. First, there's the equipment factor. Even boxes who have rowers may not have ENOUGH rowers to get all their athletes through the workout. Second, it would be...

Re: The ever present prowler search...

I have the Econo-Prowler as well and it is a good product. I bought it a couple years ago before all these competing products were available. I have used the Rogue Butcher and if I were to choose...

Re: Rogue Jump Rope

I just got mine yesterday and have pretty much the same impressions. If I could combine the Rogue handles with a lighter cable like the one on the Revolution, I'm pretty sure I would have the perfect...

Re: Recommended Jump Ropes

Yeah, I have to agree. I recently purchased an Rx Jump Rope in the lightest version. I still prefer my Again Faster Revolution Rope by a wide margin and it's half the cost.

In my opinion, the feel...

Re: INOV-8 F-lite 230s

I like the lighter of the 2. I think these are pretty sweet.

Re: sub double unders for 400m

That's correct but don't expect your Helen times to be equivalent. If you're even halfway decent at D/U's your time will be way faster than standard Helen.

Re: Where can I find tires for flipping?

I got mine from a farm that's within 400 yards of my house. I just casually asked if they had any old tractor tires they were looking to get rid of. They led me to a pile of about 5-6 good sized...

Re: Kettlebells for a gym!

If you're going to be using the KB's mostly for CrossFit WOD's (which are mainly just KB swings) then I'm not sure you'd see the benefit of the Competition style steel bells. If, on the other hand...

Re: First Major Equipment Purchase

I bought a Pendlay Olympic Bar a few months ago and absolutely love it. The B&R bar is supposed to be a top-notch product and Rogue is a fantastic supplier. I also own the Hi-Temp bumpers and I'm...

Re: Portable wallball target

That's what I use. Mine is a portable one that's adjustable from 7.5' to 10' rim height. It works OK. Of course not as good as an actual wall but it's an acceptable solution. Most of these units are...

Re: Rogues Ultra Speed Cable Jump Ropes

These are about the best ropes I've used. They are the fastest ropes out there and the cables are extremely durable. Only thing I don't like is that the handles are very short and also feel very...

Re: Christine

Hey Harry!,

CrossFit Providence posted this as their WOD a couple days ago and they had it as 20" box jumps. Also, box in the Pat Barber vid looks like a 20" box.

Re: Favorite Jump Rope?

LOL - Sounds so familiar. I have one of these ropes and I actually like it quite a lot now that I'm used to the speed of it. But when you're first working the skill of D/U's you will take a whipping...

Re: Who are you pulling for in the 09 Games?

I second that. Both seem like great guys...very humble. Would love to see the top dawgs from my region do well.

Aside from those 2 I'm a huge Speal fan. The guy is just amazing. I also met him at...

In addition to shoulder strain, I'll throw in that it really does a number on your hands from all the friction. I was at a cert. this weekend and I found that the discomfort of pinching and abrading...

Re: Strength Failing me on Deadlifts

I had a similar experience this week when doing the total. I set a new PR on my Squat, equaled my PR on the Press and then failed at 10# shy of my PR on the DL!!! I chalked it up to lousy technique...

Re: question about bumper plates

My advice - skip the 35's. I recently bought a set of Hi-Temps. I got 2 pairs of 45's and 1 pair of 10's, 15's, 25's and 35's. I use all of them regularly except the 35's. I love the Hi-Temps. I've...
