Pulled The Trigger...

Finally ordered my home set up to supplement my box schedule. Of course my physical therapist tells me he wants me to take a month off now to fully rehab my shoulders but anyhoo...Toys on the way:

Rogue 230 lb Hi Temp Bumper Plate set with the Rogue Bar
A 'Crossfit Games' Plyo Box
Ultraspeed Cable Jump Rope
Dynamax 16 pound Medicine Ball

I already have an Iron Gym Pull up bar and collars. Anything I am forgetting?

Re: Pulled The Trigger...

16# dynamax? Too tough for the women's weight?

Do you have chalk? They have some chalk balls too. And lifting shoes.

I looked at those. I wasn't sure how they would work from the Iron Gym.

50lbs weight vest? holy cow. You must be on swole, mine is only 40

I think you need chalk if you're going to lift that bar with the weights on it. If you aren't then no biggie

Do you use chalk at the gym?

Lol!
I got the 50 lbs so I could split it up with the extra free vest I got with my order. I plan on using maybe 20 of it. Maybe 25.

I haven't really gotten to doing a strength WOD at the box. Just technique with little weight. Never with chalk. I don't really have a garage so that's a mess I would like to avoid. Is it that bad to use the gloves?

If you plan on using the bar and sweating at the same time you might want to get some chalk. If you can hold off sweating until after you've done your wod then don't worry about it.

Gloves don't allow you to get a very good grip on anything. When it comes to something like snatches you want the best grip you can get since accelerating the bar with sweaty hands can be perilous. Same for Kettlebells, heavy deadlifts, etc. Most folks don't use gloves because they can't grip a bar very well. If they somehow work for you then it's rare.

Where will you be using your weights? The chalk balls are a little cleaner/easier to use without making a mess. Similar to a chalk bag for bowling or climbing.

Try and see if you're hands sweat or slip while your working out. If they do you might benefit from chalk.

Maybe the living room. Maybe the patio though.

Re: Pulled The Trigger...

Are you going to drop bumpers in your living room? Is the patio Concrete? Do you have garage? Inquiring minds want to know.

See attached.

ring dips and pushups are fine that way. i usually do muslceups by throwing them over the balcony (i'm on the second floor) but when worlds collide and a WOD involves MUs on a rainy day, i can pull off some modified ones with the rings hanging from the pullup bar as well.

oh, i'm 5' 5" ~145lbs
