New Feature!

We’re starting a new feature here at the Black Hills CrossFit blog. It’s called Mark Rippetoe’s Quote of the Day (hereinafter “MRQOTD”). Mark Rippetoe is a strength coach who authored a pretty famous book called Starting Strength. I haven’t read the book, but from what I can tell he’s pretty hilarious.

Today’s quote is inspired by all the torn hands that resulted from doing 84 chest-to-bar pullups on Monday…

“The only legitimate use for a glove is to cover an injury…. A desire to prevent callus formation (possibly so as to not snag one’s pantyhose) does not constitute a legitimate use.”

And a related bonus quote…

“If your gym makes a lot of money by selling gloves, you have another reason to look for a different gym. And if you insist on using them, make sure they match your purse.”
