Which style are the back squats in yesterday's WOD, power or olympic, or a mix of both? I want to do the workout today so I'd appreciate a quick reply, thanks.

I always assume olympic style squats for the WOD. After doing Crossfit for a few months now, I find myself much more flexible and able to squat much deeper (my first set of OH squats exposed my lack of flexibility).

Sorry but could you explain the difference in form between the two? My first guess is that you go deeper on the O squats.

I believe Coach recomends a hybrid of both called the "athletic" squat. There are a million descriptions of the squat both OL style and PL on the net so we can do a bit of searching on those. One of the CFJ's covers the squat and is a must have.
