    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    good luck buddy getting the china romaleos anywhere notgoingtohappen/10

    only shit thing with adidas' weightlifting shoes is they tend to become shittier every olympiad, ie the adipowers < 2008 adistar < 2004 adistar < ironwork

    my coach has a shitload of adidas' shoes from different eras starting from circa '85 or so.

    the olympica is the one I have.

    leather is ok, nothing special. It's probably better than adidas leather but these are weightlifting shoes; I don't need depth of colour or luxurious leather. It's corrected grain anyway so it's not amazing leather or anything.

    The problem is in the lack of heel cup.

    They're not bad, they're just not good.

    Bro at the gym came out today as a weekend crossfitter. Invited me to go crossfit with him this weekend. Tried to sell it with, "Dude, it's the only workout that's really kicked my ass."

    Like that's a fucking selling point. I like my workouts to be 2 hours long, slow paced, and be comfortable enough to chat it up with the boys and check out the cardio bunnies. Fuck you and your 45 minutes of wanting-to-kill-yourself workouts.

    Crossfit is like the Primerica of fitness

    In fact, I salute them for creating a successful model that didn't involve referral fees.

    In any case, nelsonhaha.png

    The problem was FILA's lack of compliance with IOC requests to make the sports more entertaining. The IOC is right. Current freestyle and Greco scoring encourages passivity rather than action: score a one point takedown, lie on the other guy for 15 seconds, restart and look like you are wrestling for the time so you can take the period. College is worse when you throw in riding time. A lot of 1-0 victories because one guy kept a guy down longer than the other.

    It's pretty much unwatchable to me, as someone who doesn't know the rules.

    Wrestling changes so far include winning by accumulated points instead of by periods, two three-minute periods instead of three two-minute periods, stricter rules for passivity, and takedowns worth 2 points instead of just 1.

    The takedown and accumulated points rules are good since they make sense (most points win) and are more like folkstyle.

    Edit: I'm glad they didn't get rid of the singlet. There was talk of going with fighter shorts and compression tops.

    Despite being uncomfortably snug on me, I like my Power Perfect 2's. I don't use them for back squats though, even though I can lift more, I feel like the heel lift is a crutch that isn't going to help my mobility.
