Diary of a Bra pt3 – Doing the Open

The title if these posts is starting to resemble a bad bunch of sequels lol.

Overall I pretty impressed with this sports bra

. I will conclude this series with a full summery.

For now the next test.

Box Jumps and a fast moving WOD.

The WOD in question is the second in the Crossfit Games Open 13.2.

Task:

10 minute Amrap

5 Shoulder to Overhead 35Kg/52Kg

10 Deadlifts 35Kg/52Kg

15 Box Jumps 20″/24″

This wod is geting back to the old skool roots of Crossfit. A simple unassuming looking WOD that has a big old sting at the end of it’s tail.

Scores are worked out on total reps.

So how did the bra measure up.

As I expected not a problem.

I have to make mention of the coverage it gives you. I am not usually one for training with my top off but for the first open last week (13.1) Mid WOD I had to tear my vest off, Hulk stylee.

The nice thing about this Shock Absorber is that it covers well so that even with a top off you don’t feel over exposed.

Box Jumps and Shock Absorber gets a huge thumbs up!

Diary of a Bra -2

Skip test time.

I have just acquired a new speed rope from Wolverson.

Getting happy with my speed rope

I love it best 20 quid spend this month. It makes such a huge difference to your double unders!

How did my Shock Absorber find the skips?

No problem at all.

I know I have a small bust and your probably thinking that would still be the case if I had a few more cup sizes but honestly this new ultimate sports bra is not just comfortable but the design gives you maximum compression that your boobs aren’t going anywhere.

My Picture Diary of a Bra

This is the first of many pictures I will use as I test how well Shock Absorber’s new ultimate sports bra lives up to it’s name.

Continuing from my previous post Handstands made the short list of movements that needed a test run.

How well did it keep everything in?

Was it comfortable?

I decided to test this out under wod conditions and as my handstand push up strength needs improving I decided on a scaled JT.

JT is usually 21-15-9 Handstand push ups, ring dips and push ups.

My version 9-6-3 Still tough enough.

Did everything stay in place? Check

Comfort? Sure.

How about a bit of hip snap with a kipping handstand push up? No problem.
