Rodil, Stavros, Herm from CrossFit Los Altos, and Darren enjoy some post “Helen” beer on Sunday.
And now Herm (a certified badass doing Helen with a 20lb weight vest and 70lb kb) will now also be known as “Quads”.

Touch the floor and go between reps (no resting with the bar on the floor). Go as heavy as possible. Post loads to comments.
Coach Rip discusses the bar position during the jump:
“Having been a trainer myself for years and years I can tell you that I have met some great smart trainers, and some Iâ€™m not even sure how they got certified. Most people seem to trust their trainers 100% when it comes to advice on how to get into shape, yet isnâ€™t the information only as good as the source it comes from. Some trainers may have a Masters in exercise physiology, some may have no formal background in fitness. While a degree is one thing, experience and the ability to get results is another. Much like a nutritionist who went to school to learn about nutrition, yet may also tell you to follow the food pyramid, eat 10 servings of grains all day and eating 6x a day is the best way to speed up your metabolism (which we already know is not true from the posts about the science of meal frequency Part I and Part II). Trainers are also in the business of training, so there is incentive to keeping people around month after month. So here are some things that you may not be getting from your trainerâ€¦.but need to know. . .”
