 "Ithink at this point, being a 37 year old CrossFitter whose only being doing CF for 1.5 years and is trying his best to be an actual competitor, I need to be really careful what I do and when I do it.  I'm prone to tweaking things and can't afford it.  I love having this blog to serve as my "clay" to mold each day.  It's great.  And my strength has gone WAY up.  I front-squatted 300 for the first time last week and my back squat has gone up 50 lbs.  DT I did 4 and a half minutes faster than I did it in Dec.  Those are huge gains and it's thanks to you and your crew.
Appreciate it immensely bro.

High Hang – Start with the bar at “the pockets.”
Hang – Start with the bar just above the knee.
