Re: MBTI Test Results of Crossfitters

INTJ - nice to see other INTJers out there as well. I had been led to believe this was very much a minority category.

Re: Opinion on collars?

Hi Bob,

This question has been asked a few times before, so you will find a lot of opinions if you do a quick search of the forums.

Having said that, my preference is still for the Muscle Clamps...

Re: Iron Maven on CF Oly technique

Re: Shoulder flexibility for the olympic lifts

Shoulder dislocates with a simple 6 foot dowel have made the world of difference for me. I couldn't even get the bar into a good OHS position until I started doing them.

Re: Where am I going to hang these things?

I'd recommend throwing a pair of snap links on the end of the straps. That way you can quickly throw the straps over a bar (like the pull-up bar on a power rack) and clip back on the straps...

Re: Review of York Press Squat stands
