    EliteFTS Economy Single Prong: $69.99
    Inzer 10mm latch: $67

    Thanks.

    The past two months? Yes, chins every workout (3x/week). Went from doing 8x2 to 8x4. Eventually yes I'll reduce to once or twice a week; an article I read said to go high volume with BW chins to...

    Right; the 'problem' I am trying to mitigate is going from SL5x5 where I am lifting (more or less) my max 5x5 3 times a week to going on 5/3/1 where I will be ramping up to less than my 1x5 and 1x3....
