Just for a little perspective on how far Cullen has come...this series is from today.  Great form, PR of 154 lb., shoulders and core are SO much more solid!

Compare to just this past August.  It was tough to hold 70-80lb. overhead, squat without being too wide, or coming forward onto his toes a bit.  A lot of effort in Cullen's face.  He was doing well at that time, especially since he had just started CrossFit, but I have been really impressed with his progress and wanted to share what I have seen.  Today he made those OHS look pretty easy!  You've come a long way, Baby!

Many people got PR's today, actually!  STRONG work on all the focus, determination, and improving of form that gets you all there!  Keep it up!

Buck got 110lb. today-total PR and huge squat form improvement.  That back surgery seems to have been a good thing!  Chloe PR'd today at 92lb., and Mo had her 1st shot at OHS!

Both Amanda and Tara PR'd today at 121lbs.!  They got that breakthrough with first breaking through on getting heavier jerks from behind the head.  Strong effort and awesome push, Ladies!  Thank you, Tara, for pushing all of us to improve and try harder tonight.

Patty, strong work on cremating your previous PR and squatting 86lb.  It sure helps the mental game when you think kg are lbs.!
