Discount MiR Weight Vests

Good news!

If you've been looking to buy a weight vest, but have been holding back for some reason, I've joined with MiR as a seller, and have got a 10-15% discount for the CrossFit community. I'd like to go into more detail, but I don't think I can do that without sounding like a cheesy infomercial, so I'll just give you the links.

Thanks,

Re: Discount MiR Weight Vests

I got a MiR vest two months ago -- wish I had this discount then. But I must say, it's a great vest. Got a 50# one, and it's very sturdy and comfortable.

Re: Discount MiR Weight Vests

I've got a short workout video showing the 30# Short vest... I'm having problems uploading it to YouTube though. Firefox won't stop crashing, and YouTube only uses browser-based uploading. I'll post a link when I've got it.

It was: 3 rounds, each for time, with 3:00 rest in between of...
- 5 kipping pull-ups
- 10 HPC+PP, 75#
Times: 1:19, 1:26, 1:21
Total: 4:06

My kips were pretty violent, since it was a heavy weight for me to move, but I handled it better than the last time I tried weighted kipping pull-ups. The vest made the HPC's feel a lot heavier than 75# by draining my momentum in the pull, but it didn't block me from receiving the bar.

Afterwards, I did a fourth, unweighted, round for fun. 47 seconds.


Re: Shane
Did you get the Pro or the Short? I'm liking the Short much better than either my old long one, or the Pro one.

I think it's the short one. I really like the way it fits. I've done a couple of 10K distances in it without any problem.

Re: Shane
Why are you running with the extra weight? That's risking a lot of injury if you don't already have your running technique down solid and developed well.
