WOD: 20100218

Today was Fran training day.

4 rounds for reps of 65# Thrusters: 30 seconds of work followed by 1 minute of rest
4 rounds for reps of pull-ups: 10 seconds of work followed by 50 seconds of rest


After the work I spent some time on my front squat. Haley gave me some insight which in hindsight seems very obvious: the depth of my front squat is being limited by my hamstring flexibility. Previously I had been thinking that I needed to improve hip flexibility but I think that she is right: when my back starts to round it is because I'm hitting a limit in hamstring flexibility. i.e. my tight hamstrings have gone as far as they can, so my back rounds to relieve some tension.
