A Variety Of Movements… Kinda Like A Buffet :)

Here’s a cool vid from the time they had double DT at the CrossFit Games… you know in honor of today.  The second video is heavy DT!  Yikes!  And the third… is Annie Thorisdottir doing DT at 155#.  By the way, that’s the guys Rx’d weight.  I thought this would give a great perspective after … More A Variety Of Movements… Kinda Like A Buffet 🙂
