American Olympian (Olympic Weighlifting), Kendrick Farris does Isabel.  His very first ever CrossFit WOD!

“Form, Form, Form !” ~ Kendrick Farris


When you snatch or clean do you ever:  (c/o Diane Fu of  San Francisco CrossFit)

1. Wonder why the bar is so far away from your body?

2. Wonder how to bring the bar into your hips?

3. Catch/lose the bar out front?

If you said yes to any of the above, you could be at fault of not sweeping/shifting the bar in towards the body.

To remedy this, proper use of the lats as the mechanism for pushing the bar into the body must be employed.

    Back was feeling a little “iffy” after yesterday so I went conservative on the weight today. HBD Stevenson!

    Grace, I appreciate your style of coaching, not too hard, not too soft. I feel like Goldilocks; it’s just right for me!
