Re: Elbow popped during OHS

If it hurts during daily activities it's a significant injury. Leave the ICE out of RICE, compression is better. And make sure you don't have muscle imbalances and tightness that will prolong the...

Re: MobilityWOD Battlestar Kit Reviews

Is this praise for Supernova 120mm 1.0 or 2.0? Some Supernova reviews on Rogue's site say they liked 1.0 design more.

Re: Garage Gym Rack/Rig

Are you including the $135 spotters for S-2? They will save you just as well as R-3 on the bench but since you're not fully enclosed you're in more danger on squats.

Re: Rogue Rack question (infinity vs Monster lite vs Monster)

Rogue 2x3 looks and assures just as well. But Sorinex sells Dark Horse Rack which is 3x3 with plate storage for around $1000.

Re: Shoulder pain prevents me from doing pull ups

Are you using proper pullup form? You're supposed to squeeze your shoulder blades together and keep them squeezed at the bottom.

Hopefully the crossfit gym will correct your form if you don't.

Re: HG Rogue vs Competition Bumpers

He says especially the 10kg/25 lbs are not good for crossfit. Since it's still a relatively thin plate and designed to be surrounded by other plates.

Re: How do you get rid of greasy/slippery feel on bumpers?

There's Simple Green or acetone. It's probably some type of shipping oil, but if it's that thick and slippery it will take a while to dissipate.

Re: Rogue HG collars breaking
