Re: Crossfit skills for 2013 Open
I've dropped in to the Oly lifting class at Crossfit Epic in Iowa City, I was impressed with the coach there. I'd encourage you to check that out.
Like you I'm fairly new at CF (8 months in), still working on skill development, and do most of my workouts in my garage. I'd really encourage you to get the oly lifts down if you plan on competing. You can count on heavy and/or high rep oly lifts in competition, and it seems to me that people with great form use much, much less energy than those of us who are just muscling things up. I don't think it's possible to spend too much time working on the snatch, that is one complex movement.
