I'm sure I'm not the only one who noticed that in today's video Nicole finally hit 15 x bw OHS when she wore her lifting shoes. Coincidence? I don't think so, but obviously Nicole would know best.

If you go frame by frame you can actually see the bar hovering in the air for two frames. While the bar is clear and in focus, Aimee is a blur. I was able to clearly see her "pulling" herself...

1) Are you allowed to transfer (e.g. sell) your membership?

Thanks a lot for the feedback, Cosmo and Brian. I will invest in an arm band and ease into more kipping. The problem isn't too severe yet, so I hope I will not need a full 12 week recovery.
