Okay, when I was a child my mother would yell, "Clean your room!!!!" and I would say "ok mommy" then I would do it. Then I found CrossFit! Now my mom says "Clean your room!!! and I simply reply, " I can't mommy....it's too heavy."

Speaking of cleaning; one reason multiple cleans are so hard is because of the loss of grip on the bar. So today during the skill we will be working on the "hook grip." Don't be scared Peter Pan, not everything is about you. The "hook grip" is simply a better way of using the thumb to support bar weight. And it REALLY WORKS!
