I know that I'm way late on this review (it is the December box).  Between travelling and work, we've been a little overcome by events. This StrengthCrate had some really good stuff, but I did feel that the focus was slightly different than in the past. More on that below.

First up were these products from WOD Welder. They sell one bar of soap for $9.95 or a 3-pack for $25 (let's call this $8.50 each for simple math) and the bath bomb for $5.95.  I can say that the soap was a giant block. I'm not really sure how to quantify how quickly it accelerated recovery.  You can read more about their process. I personally don't buy into the whole paleo thing, but it does seem to use some good ingredients. I think the same can be said for the bath bomb.

The big ticket item in this box was this set of birch rings and straps from X-Training Equipment (normally $72 on their website). These are the same or very similar to the rings at my Crossfit box in the States.  I have no problem with the quality of these rings.  They feel like among the best you can buy. I will admit I've been struggling on how to use them. I've always viewed this box as perfect for sending me small portable equipment for a home gym or for travelling. These rings are a little difficult to use at home (unless you have a sturdy swingset or tree branch). I was excited to work on muscle ups, but I don't think I have anything strong enough to hold my weight in our house. I'm still experimenting but these are a good, compact item to hold onto once we move into a new home, which is all too frequent in this job.

The box also included its usual supplements, this time grass fed whey from Driven ($20). Not pictured is a Hylete T-shirt ($35).

This month, out of 10, I give StrengthCrate a 10 on quality, 10 on cost (The G.O.A.T. crate costs $75 plus shipping; I found the products online for about $140), 7 on appropriate for us, and 9 on fun. Like I said, the products are all really top notch. This month, my only struggle was trying to figure out how to use the rings at home.
