VS Brand weightlifting shoe and Hannah in her Do'Wins

You have probably seen many of us go change our shoes prior to deadlifting, squatting and especially cleaning and jerking and snatching. The olympic style weightlifting shoe is designed to give you a stable lifting platform and hard landing surface. To optimally receive heavy loads, you do not want to be wobbling around. The shoes also help you keep your weight in your oh-so precious heels.

Do you need to have olympic style weightlifting shoes to do CrossFit?  No, but you don't need chalk to do pull ups either.

Until recently, oly shoes had to be ordered online.  Now, thanks to our friend Tom Frankl at Play It Again Sports, some of these can be purchased locally.


With a continuously running clock do one pull-up the first minute, two pull-ups the second minute, three pull-ups the third minute... continuing as long as you are able.

Use as many sets each minute as needed.
