Lifting heavy weights? Yeah, you are. Belts have a place. Know their role.

Read – Weightlifting Belts from Dallas Strength & Conditioning.

The Murph Challenge – We’re less than two weeks out from one of the hardest, yet super simple, workouts we do all year. If you want to do it Rx, you’ll need a weight vest. Ours are generally spoken for by the coaches and those that have been wearing them every year since the day we opened. If you’re feeling froggy, you can scoop up a weight vest at most sporting good stores or Rogue probably makes one way overpriced. Think of it as an investment opportunity.
