RSP GlutaGen

RSP GlutaGen 


Okay, for starters, we did a full review on RSP in the past. For that review, check out:




I just finished a cycle of RSP's GlutaGen (glutamine). Let me start off by saying I have used at least a half a dozen different supplement companies and their version of glutamine.



I have lifted heavy and often while using RSP's glutamine. It has served me extremely very well and I've experienced little soreness of muscle.


About six months ago I performed the WOD of the hundred back squats for time with 135 pounds. This workout left me extremely sore. Two weeks ago I performed the same workout and would guess at least 80% less muscle pain from the last time. And during that period of time I was taking glutamine. I strongly believe that this cycle of glutamine has made my training much stronger!


and IT TASTES GREAT!!!!!


We have a fantastic sales rep in Danny Morales. Danny is also a fantastic advocate of WODville. And we are glad to call him a RSP/WODville athlete.


I think you already know my answer about RSP's glutamine. RSP is an excellent product and worth the money spent. RSP, keep the great supplements rolling.


Description:
  • Full serving of L-Glutamine for maximum muscle recovery and immune system support.*
  • Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine combat muscular catabolism following exercise.*
  • CopMax assists in restoration of Adenosine tri phosphate stores depleted as a result of muscular stress during physical activity.*
  • Bioperine and B Vitamins support increased bioavailability for optimal absorption rates and digestive efficiency.*

SPARTAN GRIP


SPARTAN GRIP

Up next on our agenda is Spartan grip. This review is going to be short and sweet, but don't let that fool you when it comes to the advantages of Spartan grip. Recently, they sent us two bottles of liquid skin-adhesive in the mail a few months back. I am extremely impressed with this product. It has served us well regarding those long workouts that require extreme grip.


I have used Spartan Grip for toes-to-bars, pull-ups, farmer carrys, basic barbell work etc.



This product creates a second layer of skin, and its sticky. The sticky truly assists while attempting to hold on to whatever item your holding.


The other great part is that when your done working out, the product washes off quickly with soup and warm water.


 http://www.spartangrip.com/spartan_grip.html

" We are people who do CrossFit, in official affiliated BOXes, so we do the real deal and not copycats.


We have developed SpartanGrip to solve a need that any true CrossFitter has, a solution to provide grip and protection to your hands improving your performance today and in the long term.


Of course, there is a research behind SpartanGrip and its components, but more important is that SpartanGrip has been developed through hundreds of WOD’s, testing and improving the formula that really makes the difference in The BOX, that performs under real action, REP after REP.


SpartanGrip is made and bottled in Europe by a group of athletes aiming to share it with all the people who love CrossFit."


We love this product. It doesn't take a lot of grip to do the job. One bottle will last you a while and is significantly better then chalk.



 One bottle will run you $30 which covers 80 workouts. Two bottles will run you 40. The other great part is that they offer free shipping. Bam Score!

Work T Knee Sleeves

WorkT Knee Sleeves
 
Up next is WorkT knee sleeves. This is a super product. We have owned the "blue'' sleeves for a few years. They have done well, but are not the kind of sleeves you will wear daily to WOD in. I wear my WorkT sleeves almost every day. They are lighter, flexible, but provide super support to my 43 year old knees. Furthermore, if they are good enough for Chris Spealler, then they're good enough for Heidi and I.
 
Im a very big advocate on protecting your knees. Besides, the back and the knees are the most injured body parts for Crossfitters, and these sleeves keep us in the game. I will wear them for any kind of squat, including air squats. My old knees will click multiple times as i go up and down, but after putting the sleeves on it warms the knees and resolves the clicking. The sleeves also help stabilize the knees, which is very important when trying to maintain good form.
 
WorkT also just came out with a thicker sleeve. If there new product is made with the same awesome quality as the thinner sleeve you will not be disappointed! WorkT scores well with WODville! We are very impressed with what they have produced and look forward in reviewing future gear from them.

BRUTE FORCE II

Brute Force

Sweet-Action, Unbelievable, Stupendous: These are just a few words one can use to describe Brute Force. They claim to specialize in sandbag training, and, boy, do they ever! We LOVE their products! We have been using their Ruck Sack for about a month, however that product review will be out in a few weeks. Today, I want to hit on the first products that were sent our way: Sandbags, Wall balls, and the Weight Belt.

First off, their shipping is very fast, and you won't be let down by their customer service. Also, let me reinforce, these guys know what's up when it comes to fabric containers of broken quartz crystals, or sandbags. As of late, I have become such an advocate of sandbag training; we just came back from Paris and discovered that Crossfit Louvre trains with sandbags regularly. Our USA Special Forces also train with sandbags and Brute Force provides our US Navy with a large portion of their bags.

I also love Brute Force sandbags because they have additional handles on their bags. We have used the sandbags for running, squat cleans, and front squats. There are also a ton of different workouts on YouTube for sandbags. Oh and before I forget, they make pink sandbags. Heidi Loves her Pink sandbag and weight belt!
On top of all this, they sent us the outer shell of wallballs/ atlasballs . this has been a great addition to the WODville gym. We filled it with the weight we wanted in sand and then packed it with heavy density cotton (Which really means we just shoved in alot of normal density cotton, realized it weighed more, and dubbed it High Density Cotton, we're realizing some very serious business potential). Works like a champ... A CHAMP!! We got two of these in the mail and right now Heidi's weighs about 15lbs and mine is about 24 lbs...

The weight belts are super heavy duty. They are thick and wide! They also just came out with a multi camo belt that will soon be sported in the WODVille gym.

They are coming out with some new product in the next month and we are super pumped to be one of the first companies to highlight their new products. It goes without saying we are honored to support this great veteran owned company, and if the products mentioned here are any portent of those to come, we'll be supporting them much longer. Over the last few months we have become good friends with owner Keith Burns. All in all, they make an exceptional product for the CROSSFIT community.

Our video review will be included with this written review. we are honored to be Brute Force Athletes.

WOD Lifts

     WODLifts



A few months ago, on a night not unlike tonight, Heidi and I were doing heavy squats. I had positioned two of the small, iron 5 lbs weights just under the heels of my feet in hopes of emulating the results of weight lifting shoes. As I pressed on, one of the trainers caught me out of the corner of his eye, approached me and uttered in a tone I that sent a chill down my spine, "Have you heard of those new WODLift things? Worth checking out." He went on to explain that they did the same thing as weight lifting shoes... but they were inserts. I released from my chest a hearty laugh, explaining the prophecies of the affordable and easy way to lift simply were not true. I knew in my heart an insert could never meet the needs of weight lifting and general WODdery at the same time. Dismissing his tomfoolery, I returned to my makeshift platform. Then... WODLift contacted us.

This is the specific product our trainer was talking about. 2 days later we had a couple pairs of WODLifts on our door step. The next morning I slid them into my Inov8s and did heavy squats and a 10 minute WOD with doubleunders and running. There was no sliding at all! They worked excellent. Over the last few weeks I've put them in my Nanos as well, they have been great.

This is a super inexpensive way of having lift in your heel without paying an arm and a leg. the other great part of this product is that they can stay in your shoes during high intensity WODs.

Customer Service you ask? Owner Erik Barr has been awesome. We talked on the phone within hours of taking the product off the porch. He is a true Crossfitter and has done an excellent job at producing a fantastic product. By the way, we no longer heartily laugh about this product, its legitimate. In fact, our lifts now are part of our workout multiple times a week now.

CROSSFIT LOUVRE (Paris France)

CROSSFIT LOUVRE (Paris France)



Here at WODVille, we want to take a few minutes to tell you about one of the most outstanding Boxes we have ever been to; Crossfit Louvre in Paris, France truly has it figured out.  Owner Daniel Chaffey spent some time with Heidi and I to show us around their Box. We were blown away with how much is going on with the limited space right in the middle of Paris. Their classes start every thirty minutes all day long. This is a must in order to cater to their 900 members.


This box is NOT taking new members, they seriously have a waiting list a mile long. This is why Daniel has plans to open two new locations in the very near future.

France has seen an explosion in the size of the Crossfit community. 18 months ago, there were only 9 Crossfit gyms in France. Now there are 45 Boxes and more on the way. Crossfit Louvre is one of the main reasons for this surge. They started offering Level 1 trainer courses in French.

They have a great elements program and upon a member completing their elements there is celebration and they honor them on their social media.

They started out doing Crossfit in Parks all over Paris. Daniel got tired of getting kicked out of the parks and established a location. Since then they have seen huge success.


One of the cool features is that they have a Reebok Crossfit retail store attached to the location.

They also preach nutrition! For a fee, you can have Paleo style meals made for you. When I tell you that we are super impressed, that would be an understatement. This location is the model for all other CROSSFITs.

They also have a team that represents their gym at Regionals, and their athletes are beasts! We got to meet a few of them. They also have a great group of trainers that love the sport of Crossfit.

If Heidi and I lived in Paris we would be all over training at this Box.

Formulx

Formulx 


Sliding into our lineup of companies is FormulX. Paleo people come one, come all, we have a great product for you. Let me start out by saying; its a great tasting protein, especially with almond milk. 

ALL NATURAL WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE, 100% GLUTEN FREE, SOY FREE, NON-GMO AND THAT'S JUST THE BEGINNING.

With 22 grams of grass-fed whey protein and over 5 grams of naturally occurring branch chain amino acids (BCAAs) per scoop, FormulX Nautral Recovery Protein is practically Freshman Biology class in a bottle. Grass-fed means it's hormone free and loaded with plant-extracted digestive enzymes to prevent any bloating.

The flavors come in chocolate and vanilla; I even played with it and mixed half-and-half and it still tastes excellent. Here at WODville; taste, consistency, and results are the cornerstones of our criteria, and FormulX misses no marks.

We have not reviewed their creatine and glutamine supplements, but they also carry those types of products as well. However, If there protein is any indication of the qulaity of their creatine or glutamine, you will not be disappointed!

I used it a couple of times a day for about a month, going back-and-forth between chocolate and vanilla. The strong benefit for me is that it curves my appetite in the evening when I take the scoop after the 5:30 workout. This keeps me from wanting to snack or cheat later in the evening with foods I shouldn't be touching!

Below, you can see a quick video review of formulas. We here at WODville give FormulX a high grade in every category, keep the supplements coming !







VULCAN STRENGTH (Part 2)

VULCAN STRENGTH 

We've been away in Cryosleep, and its time to warm things up again! We left off with Vulcan Strength and wrote a review regarding their wooden rings and kettle bells. Today we want to talk about their bumper plates and sandbags. As was stated in our last review, we are very impressed with Vulcan Strength!


We had never trained with sandbags prior to receiving this equipment, since then I have mixed some form of sandbag training into our workout regimen every week. I've noticed that short distance running has become more of an effortless movement. I strongly believe that to be a result of using sandbags to train with. The material is extremely durable, including Velcro that would frustrate Mike Tyson. It comes with an internal bag where you put the sand in and then Velcro it over in order to stay secure and prevent sand leakage. You then place it inside the outer shell which then zips closed with a heavy duty zipper. It has handles on the outside, two more further in and one in the center.

This form of training holds multiple purposes. You can use it (obviously) for running, gobbler style squats, and back squats as well as while performing a clean or jerk movement. There are many other styles of workouts that can be found on the Internet i.e. YouTube etc.

The other piece of equipment that we wanted to highlight is their bumper plates, of which we received two ten-pounders. Heidi has used these for high-volume snatches and overhead squats. As most of you know it's not recommended to drop 10-pound bumper plates from a higher level. But of course that has happened in the WODville gym. These bumper plates have stood up very well to the wear and tear of our workouts.

I strongly encourage you to take the time to read our other reviewed constraints if you haven't already. We have reviewed four of their pieces of equipment and all four have stood up very well!

WODDawg

WODDawg

Rolling in next is WODDawg. This is going to be a fairly fast and quick review exposing our readers to a fantastic company, cause, and product. In a few weeks, we will be adding video review to accompany our written reviews. Since we want to give WODDawg the fullest exposure possible, we will be adding a video for it down the road.

The logo that WODDawg uses is of their mascot, a famous bulldog that happens to live in NorCal. Being a well done logo, it depicts Spike, the English Bulldog and K9 belonging to the voice of the 'CrossFit Update Show,' obstinately dangling a kettlebell from his steely lower jaw.

As for the cause, it is a phenomenal endeavor. Their goal is to match veterans with K-9's. Anything that supports our veterans after they come home gets absolute support from us! In our full review we will go into more detail.
The apparel is sweet action! Their shirts have a patch with their logo on it and are very comfortable with form fitting fabric around the arms. On top of this, they're also very soft and breathe well.

After we agreed to do a review, we had T-shirts on our doorstep in two days! Heidi received a hooded shirt and Razorback tank tops, and she loves the women's apparel!

SPIKE
Every WODAspect of WODDawg WODScores WODBig with WODVille. The name, cause and gear are great stuff! Mad props to Chip and the rest of WODDawg!

Brute Force Training (Sandbags)

Brute Force Training

So in the next month we're going to be doing a couple of full-blown reviews for Brute Force Training. Last week, we received a full shipment of equipment; Sandbags, adjustable atlas-med balls, and weight lifting belts. While we will be completing a review on those products within the next month, there is one thing that came from Brute Force that Heidi and I absolutely love. We figured we should put up a quick review on the Brute Force Bottle Buddy. Yes, that's right a bottle buddy! 


This product uses your basic materials while using some cool concepts; it slides over most water bottles and shakers, or in our case, Heidi's Hydro-Flask. The sleeve will hold your ID, credit cards, business cards, etc. all this while being able to see your cell phone. 

Furthermore, they have somehow managed to put a small loop on the top of the buddy to hold your keys or anything else that you want to attach. 

In case you don't understand the severity of the situation, let me delve a bit further: it has their awesome logo attached to the bottle buddy. You get their logo... ON THE SIDE OF THE BOTTLE! Owner Keith Burns, a freaking genius in design, is the creator of this revolutionary piece of equipment. Keith is also becoming a social media mogul (inside joke): you can follow Brute Force on Facebook and Twitter.

We are super pumped to have Brute Force on board with WODville! In the next we will be rolling out two more reviews with some video of their great product!
