This review is of the G.O.A.T. Box.
This is the information sheet that was included in my package, detailing the contents.
On the reverse side is a workout designed by Ryan Moody of XWOD. Sometimes they include a recipe here, but this time it's a workout. It looks pretty intense!
BenchBlokz - Value $34.95
Even after I read the description of this item, I didn't really know what it was for. I went to BenchBlok's website, and I have a better idea now. Here's a picture:
So, essentially it's a means of protecting your shoulders from overextending backwards with all that weight on them, plus it helps you target the area you want to be working during bench pressing. That's if I understand correctly. I don't bench press, so this instantly turned into a yoga block for me, and it works great for that purpose, too! It's super lightweight.
Alpha Brain Instant by Onnit - Value $2 each ($12)
I'm always a little afraid to try supplements like these, but this one looks kind of intriguing. Its purpose is to improve brain function and concentration. It has no GMO's and is sweetened by Stevia, which as far as I can tell is among the least harmful sweeteners. I like that it has tons of vitamin B6 in it, so I may give it a try.
RockWrist by RockTape - Value $24.99
These are wrist wraps to be used for wrist support in heavy lifting. I wonder how they would do in kickboxing? I used to have to wrap my hands for that, too, so they might have multiple purposes. I like the design!
Uncaged 2.5 by Eat the Bear - Value $56.99 (on sale for $28.95)
This is a pre-workout drink supplement intended to provide increased energy, focus, power, and strength. I will probably not try this since I am not a fan of sucralose, but it seems to have a lot of internet hype around it, so it might be worthwhile for folks who enjoy a pre-workout boost.
Verdict: Strength Crate is so hardcore! I would have loved this subscription back when I was doing CrossFit! This month I was a little disappointed to see two supplements in the box; they don't usually do that. The workout accessories are cool, though, and Strength Crate seems to alway supply top-notch gear.
