CrossFit - Greg Glassman

Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports. - Greg Glassman

CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity.

$75 bag for your knee sleeves??

Yes, for a low $75 (and free shipping if you buy two other items) you can have this jazzy kit bag from Rogue Fitness to hold your knee sleeves, jump rope, tape, wrist wraps, gymnastics grips, and gloves.  It even has a separate compartment to seal off chalky items.

I respect Rogue and appreciate their support of the CrossFit games and athletes everywhere.  I like that they continue to invest in new and innovative products.  They are certainly known as a premium brand and command premium prices, but this is pushing that boundary a little bit.

I do carry a bunch of personal equipment to the gym everyday including:

Olympic lifting shoes - Adidas Powerlift 2 size 9 (8/28/2015)
Powerlifting shoes - Reebok CrossFit TR Lite size 9.5 (9/8/2016)
Weight belt - Weider size Large (1/14/2011)
Rock Tape Knee Caps - 5mm Large (9/8/2016)
Jump Ropes (beaded  - 98" and speed - 106") - Jump-N-Rope - 106" (11/28/2015, 1/16/2016)
Wrist Wraps - Nordic Lifting 14" (10/6/2015)
Gloves - Mechanix Wear Original Vent Glove, Covert, Medium (5/11/2015)
Tape - misc, Jaybird Elastic, Adhesive 2"
Hand Armor Liquid Chalk (9/27/2016)
Long socks (for rope climbs) - Adidas Soccer Socks
Calf sleeves (for long runs) - SLS3 FXC Compression Day Sleeves Men's Size 4 (6/12/2014)
Spare t-shirt
Fitness bands - Functional Fitness red and black
$5 bill

I have been in the market for knee sleeves (Rehband Rx 5mm Size Large).  However, I hope that I can hold off getting anything like bag.

Other shoes:

Reebok Nano 4.0 size 9.5 (4/9/2015)
Inov-8 F-lite 195 size 9.5 (10/27/2015)

Not sure why my beaded rope is so much shorter than the speed rope, but I will replace with 9' rope when ordering and just add in a couple of knots.
