Re: right foot turning out more in squats/squat cleans, also right leg hurting while walking

Re: Helen

I did a Helen variation last week: substituting 40 cals. on the Airdyne for the 400m run, doing alternating 1-hand KB swings, and strict pull-ups on a rock climbing hang board. That was fun, for...

I did it in 6:40 at one of the old Suffer on Saturday gatherings at CrossFit North, I guess that was 2005. Did anyone ever figure out the record on this?

Re: I'm back to square one with my WODs thanks Wendler System and stupid me!!!!
