Re: Type of WOD, Time Goals

This is probably the best thing I've heard so far.

I also realize there is a "method to the madness" as far as what coach Rx's, that's why I made this thread. I want to be following that method as...

Squat Stance - Wide or Narrow?

It feels natural for me to set my stance really wide on squats. When I try to come in closer my tendency is to lean on my toes and fall forward. Is a wider stance okay?

Re: First post

I feel the name pain ;P

I add push-ups to my CFWU regularly. I feel there is a bit of lack in the chest department from time to time and I always want to keep the push/pull balanced.
