-Tonight at MovNat and Flow Fundamentals we will warm up with some new partner drills courtesy of Exuberant Animal (think ropes, PVC pipes, and medicine balls), and then we will focus on Floreio. Our new move will be,”the role” and we will link that together with the QDR’s, Rotations, and Au Cortados we have previously learned.

9:28, 45 #, whoops
WOD: 12:30 with a 35# bar, but I crapped out on the pullups (blue band) and finished sloppy on the rings.
Off Topic: I wish we had a forum or mailing list or Google Groups or something so I could ask people advice, like what kind of shoes they like, or where is the best place to buy a jump rope around town, etc.
In the interim, feel free to pick out brains at the gym! These topics have come up in many a conversation and many of us have opinions on them.
Shoes are a tricky and evolving topic, although the go-to seems to have always been “less is more.” So called “squishy” running shoes don’t offer transmission of force during lifts, and are typically not high on the list. I won’t pick a favorite, but some popular brands that offer “zero drop” are the Innov8, New Balance Minimus, Vibram 5-Finger and the classic Chuck Taylor. Do some research online and talk to people at the gym because everyone one of those listed can be seen walking around CrossFit Charlottesville. Also, traditional lifting shoes with a stiff heel are popular for certain WODs or strength days.
Jump Ropes are also a sort of religion in CrossFit. I think the best bang for your buck will be found online. The next time we’re doing some DU practice (or just before/after the WOD) feel free to ask around and see if you can try out some ropes. I love my Rogue Ultra Speed Rope, but some folks prefer a weighted handle with spinning bearings.
So yeah, the answers are long and complicated and there are many opinions out there. I can say for certain that your best bet is to do some research online and strike up conversation at the gym. Good luck!
