    Yours are _much_ better than his for a number of reasons, Ashley. His elbows are too slow, he's not very explosive, he's slow, the bar is far away from his body, poor starting position, tempo is off, bar path is bad... Dude needs triage. Not that needing improvement is a bad thing, obviously. Just bugs me when youtube coaches have that swagger attitude and their own form is lacking.

    Happy/Sad for whoever pulled the first set of clear rings out of the strap holders (so the rings spin freely on the bands). Jack? Anyway, that makes MU's MUCH harder. I was VERY disseminated in my MU's this morning, but glad to know that I need to work harder on them. This WOD was fantastic. The DU's got me so winded that the second round was a struggle to keep moving. Damn you Double Unders, Damn you. 22:55 RX. I was about 4 DU's away from Paul Pi lapping me...

    Have a scratch on the back of my knee cap (fancy name: Patellofemoral Chrondromalacia). Got some fancy NSAIDs that I've been taking for 2 days so I decided to go RX at my bodyweight with the squats, even though it's been like 3 months without doing any serious squatting. 23:03 RX...I, like Doug, just couldn't get my double unders going today....managed to get the squats unbroken on 21 and 9 (2 sets on 15)...knee only bothered me a tad on the first round.

    wasn't able to get any MUs during the MU time. I seem to have lost them again. :( :( :( I hate you MU. I. HATE. YOU. 19:37 for the WOD. Used RX weight. This one SUCKED, but I really liked it. :) I could NOT breathe at all during or after the WOD. It was odd. I had to take huge, deep breaths and it felt like I was hardly getting any air into my lungs. Tonight was my first WOD w/Coach Bost. So much fun! Thanks for the encouragement during the WOD. You did a great job!

    Thanks Ashley. Logistically speaking, that was by far the toughest coaching experience I've had.
