Re: Todd's WOD/Workout Log

Did 1 round CFWU at a leisurely pace. I know CF isn't about idling around between exercises, but I'm still trying to learn some of the movements like the overhead squat. My squat form is hooooorible...

Re: Todd's WOD/Workout Log

I'm still hesitant to do Crossfit because I have a difficult time getting the gym space to do these excercises in a circuit which seems to be the whole point of CF on non strength days. How am I...
