I enjoy training with weights and Harbinger Big Grip Bar Grips allow me to really focus my strength training by making it progressive and specific. Before we get too deep into training theory, let’s talk about the product and why you may want to incorporate them into your training.
Spartan Racer Brian "Iron Heart" Boyle not only survived a near-fatal car accident at the age of eighteen but clawed back to cross the finish line at the 2007 Hawaii Ironman just three years later. In 2009, he published his first book, Iron Heart, and was presented the spokesperson of the year award from the American Red Cross for his contributions, Swim Bark, Run! is his first kid's book fostering the love of endurance sports.
So, something new happened. I was asked to review some performance apparel from MudGear. Not being the typical premier OCR athlete that would review gear, I tried to think of the best possible way to really put this gear through its paces.

When I think of sandbags and Obstacle Course Racing (OCR), there is only one brand that comes to mind, Wreck Bag. We look at a product to make the Wreck Bag even better, Wreck Ribs.
I started out in OCR when I was 50 years old. I was that far out old man who the youngsters wanted to emulate. They told me over and over they hoped they could be in as good shape when they were my age. My goal is to be in this good shape for the rest of my life.
I recently picked up the Montem Sneaky Snuggler Puffy Blanket. While the name sounds like it should be some sort of children’s toy, the usefulness of it reaches all ages. You may be thinking why am I reviewing a blanket on an Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) website, I think you'll see the reason by the end of this article.
If you feel that you have already done maxed out your closed hand crushing grip strength, maybe it is time to take things up a level. By working on fingertip strength you can add another level to your obstacle proficiency that may be the difference between success and failure.
I usually like to build up some anticipation regarding the product I’m reviewing, but I’ll cut to the bottom line up front for this one. OOFOS new shoes, the OOmg Shoes, are super comfortable, if you are a serious athlete and don’t own a pair you need to stop living in the past.
If you spend time at a normal gym or grew up reading issues of Muscle & Fitness, the name Harbinger should jump out at you. I have trouble going into a gym without seeing someone using one of their products like gloves, wrist wraps, lifting straps or weight belts.
