Why can't every day be like 8/23/13?

Did one hour of mobility, stretching, and warming up.
Then got one hour of USAW coaching on the snatch in a 1:4 setting.
For the first time ever I felt the "flip" from the power position to overhead.
When that bar gets weightless and flips and you jump under it feels like cheating and magic and power and like being young and strong and useful all at once.

Then had a 1:3 deadlift clinic with Julie Foucher.
Revelations and records were involved!

Coaching and technique, get some!

8/23 WOD
"Sharknado"
1000m Row
then 3 rounds of:
15 Thrusters (95/65)
15 Toes-to-bar

15:43.
This really needs to be renamed "OhMyEffingGod-nado." It looked hard on the board and it was. ROM on both thrusters and T2B a little janky, although I focused on good depth for the thrusters. All sets of everything were 5 max, and by the end we were talking 2's. I was slowest among everybody but I got it done. This was choosing the wrench in a big way.

Hey Pat

Amazing isn't it... My last injection was over two years ago ....and six month ago when pain came on big time, prompted my change to crossfit form the garbage I was doing before.

I did a ton of research as there are over 20 boxes with in range .... Finally chose Crossfit Ripped based on the coaching and am I glad

I'll cut to the chase, after years of pain and hobbling..... A few months of lifting heavy and proper mobility and stretching .... I'm again leaping up stairs three at a time, 30 inch box jumps are a warm up, I can lunge and Bulgarian squat with 50-70# KBs or 155 on the bar and I'm back to the strength and conditioning I haven't seen in over twenty year( and improving daily)

Yes .... Proper coaching makes all the difference
