The 2013 CrossFit Games are coming!  Register NOW for the Open.  The world-wide Open will run from March 6th through April 7th.  A new workout will be released each week.  As an official Affiliate, we, TOTF, will be able to validate scores for all athletes who register.  Test yourself against the rest of the world.  What do you have to lose?  You’ll be in here doing the WOD anyway, so might as well make it count.  Take the first step and click on the picture to go to the registration page.  Should be up today, but if there is no registration button to click on, come back to it later.  Let’s get all TactFitters registered!


back to today’s business….

Post weight used to comments/LogWOD

Video courtesy of Elite FTS.  Dave Tate going over the finer points of high box squat.  As you can see by the video, you will be finishing ABOVE normal squat depth (not going to where crease of the hip is below the knee).
Things to remember when doing this type of squat…

-Feet will be wider than shoulder width.   

-Ensure you turn the knees out (watch the demo in the video).  Force them to stay going out through the WHOLE movement.

-Butt goes back and keeps going back through the downward movement.  Your knees should be even with your ankle at the bottom position.

-Come straight up (Chest UP!) on the upward movement.  DON’t let the bar come forward.
