To finish up “Gear Week”, there are a few items worth some serious consideration to add to your gym bag.

Shin Guards/Long Socks

People realize quickly that climbing ropes (and high rep deadlifts) is devastating to the skin. Wearing shin guards or long socks will help minimize the damage. They’re fairly easy to find (at least online). WODSuperStore & WODShop, among many other retailers, sell them.

Voodoo Floss Tape

Flossing isn’t just for your teeth. Wrapping your muscles and joints with these latex bands help improve mobility and circulation, just to name a couple benefits.

Pressure Point Foam Roller

Foam rollers also help “unglue” tight, sticky muscles helping them repair faster. Trigger Point and RumbleRoller dig deep into tissue to relax them.

Lacrosse Ball

Certainly not the most comfortable tool to use but definitely one of the most effective. They dig deep to release tissues.

    Wrist guards for overhead squats, tape for the hands for pull ups and toes to bar, knee pads for heavy lunges, OLY shoes, my own rope to match my Midget Size, my own weight belt, my WOD book, my phone (In case I need to time a plank for a cool down or something like that) and long socks. I always check the WOD the day ahead, too, just in case (so if there’s rope climbs I’ll wear long socks and also have some clean spares in my bag in case another chick forgets them). :) Oh, yeah, I’m a Type A. In case you were wondering.
