On Thursday, we will be announcing our teams for the November 1st Affiliate Cup Team Competition at CrossFit TNT. We have had quite a crowd wanting to compete and are currently evaluating the athletes. No matter who competes, it has been awesome watching everyone learn technique on cleans. With little time to prepare, we have been cramming and progress has been incredible. We want to mention again that we are considering adding an "Olympic Lifting" class to the schedule. On a previous post the response was minimal so here is your chance to make it happen! Post to comments if you are interested.
Mike Shaw will be competing as a prescribed athlete on November 1st. Observe the pictures and you will notice he holds a nice "racked" position on the front squat. He is able to keep the elbows high and keeps the bar supported high on the shoulders. The bar tends to roll back onto the fingertips but it's important to try and keep a controlled grip on the bar. Next time try to keep connection with the thumb and first finger. Keep working on your wrist and shoulder flexibility. Nice job Mike!
