What i like about the crossfit stuff is the variety and the volume. What i don't like about crossfit is the lack of strength focus especially for lower body (friends shouldn't let friends air squat). Mind you i am only going by their WOD's. The journal entries i make are usually my METCON workouts t...

I bought the red steel kind with the set-screw locking nut. I've bought them at used sporting goods and other fitness stores. I've seen them for anywhere from $1 to $3 each - look around and you'll surely find some cheap ones. I've also used the spring type collars you describe with a hose clamp to ...

Yeah - Tim's right on the money (as usual). You can put many different spins on it. The spin i provided was good for the beginner or someone breaking in after a layoff.

To do this i would focus on the lifts in question - squat, deads and benches - using variations thereof as the assistance move...
