Hit and miss with those guys, I got my stuff quick and one of my friends had to call his bank and stop payment on the order after waiting 3 weeks and not getting answers.

What are you looking for?

Iíd read a while back that quite a few customers had complained of some service issues.
They sell a weighted vest Iíve had my eye on for some time, but Iím a little reluctant to place an order.
I'm in no hurry, though; not even sure I really want it.

Thanks, man!!
The last place I ordered straps (or anything, really) was Schiek.
Got the ones with the neoprene/velcro cuff and long strap to replace my noose-style ATP's. I don't know that these'd hold up well to max deads, etc., but I've been training strictly bb style lately and they suit me fine.

The quality of their stuff that I've seen and heard of so far has been excellent; I wish they'd expand their product line a bit.
I'll check the jackyl site later today!

wrestlers bridge is a dangerous ex. I know a guy who is into BJJ who got it wrong one time and was out of action for a long time. Hang your head of the end of a bench and put a barbell plate in a towel, rest it on your forehead and raise your head upwards...simple. together with shrugs it's enough. Apart from that if no machine is available use partner resistance.

^^Ha-ha...I love it!!
Actually, I think they sell something somewhat similar, now. I don't remember what they're called, but they look and fit similar: some kind of anti-slip grip material about the dimensions of an oven-holder attached to a wrist cuff.
Some fitness girl was pimping them on a video.

LOL,  well the "official" rules say no chalk, but in talking to us and letting us try it out they realize we aren't the sloppy chalk users that spread it all over and make a mess, so they have been OK with it. Grin

And we only have one stone left since the smaller one got broke. Sad

You ever tried the liquid chalk you can get?

Yeah, it's OK but it just doesn't feel the same, nor does it last nearly as long as a block of chalk.

I tried one brand (think it may even have been called "Liquid Chalk") years ago.
It was okay, but it seemed to substantially wear off between sets, requiring frequent re-applications.
I seem to remember getting good results spraying my hands AND the bar.

And, as Chaos mentions, a regular block of chalk will last a lot longer than one bottle of the spray.

Yeah.
It's also my opinion that conventional chalk is the best.

I still remember my first gym: guys would chalk their hands, their shirts, the bar, etc. They'd even use chalk to write set numbers on plates. The floor, benches and equipment were all covered in white. It looked like a blizzard hit the gym!
But, they'd always clean it up afterwards.

Ha, ha...
I remember when I trained mid-mornings at my one gym.
The old folks would arrive a good 30-45 min before their SS class started, and would congregate on the benches and machines.
Some of them would actually try to use some of the cable stuff.

Once, my buddy was doing fairly heavy leg presses when one of the seniors walked over, stood next to the sled, and asked how much weight that was. He was in the middle of his set; his face was all red, cheeks blown up from breathing like a steam engine, sweat almost projecting from his pores...and this old lady is trying to make small talk! Grin
My friend answered her question after racking, and we just laughed about the whole thing later on.
We were always serious about our training, but none of that stuff ever bothered us.

They tend to circle before they talk to me...and they always wait until I'm done with my lift, never had anone try to talk to me while lifting.
