Got called out by @kingmorghan to #stopdropandyoga a while back and forgot to post until now! Not sure if this is an actual yoga pose or not but I do this everyday before training. I’m calling out the rest of the @muscledriverusa women’s team: @jessicakinzler @harristayler @rachaeldavis11 @a_m_strong plus @rutan422 @kris10pope63k @adeezukier and @shannaduvall #yoga #weightlifting @freakathleteapparel (at Crossfit ABV)

  1. theroadtobeauty said: I’ve never seen anyone squat with crossed arms, where’s the technique come from?! Does it help with anything in particular?

I would not front squat like this normally but I had wrist surgery a couple months ago and my wrist is not yet ready to handle holding the bar in the front rack with that much weight. 

I hate crossing my arms. It makes it so much harder to keep the weight on my chest. :P 

Often bodybuilders or powerlifters will use this technique if their arms are so big that they physically cannot get their elbows up in the front rack

Easy comeback clean and jerk from yesterday’s a.m. session! 80kg! Also had a great day with snatches so I’m getting more confident about being ready for the American Open in December! 😊😁
