Default so can i hijack this thread a little?

so greg - or others - ive been accused of extending my legs too much pre double knee bend for the snatch....isn't this the way its going to be for the tall, longer-legs-than-torso-folk? there is no other way to get the bar off the floor, correct?

Allow me to go "Frankenstein" on this thread and resurrect it.

The recent CF videos have once again featured Annie Sakimoto as the ideal for many movements. I have to give my props to CFSC for getting her back in after her maternity leave. She is nothing short of "wow."

Disclaimer: As rush chairman for the Annie Sakimoto Fan Club, my opinion may have obvious bias. We are having a rush mixer soon; watch for details.

I'm guessing Ron has a crush.....who knew?? "Rush Chairman"....oh dear...that brings back so many memories...or lack thereof....

As for the recent DL vids....I like the all women approach myself being a sexist man pig....but I would advise that the one girl not be chewing gum while doing the lift....doesn't give the perspective of it being a hard lift she is doing....as it probably wasn't....

Heh...I have grade 1 seperated left shoulder from helping Glen get ready for his MMA bout...you could wax my fanny at ANYTHING!

Ron-

You may have to duke it out with Hacklemen for top Annie Sakamoto fan...no offense, but I'm afraid you are a dead man...

Crush you say? Never. Crushes are for schoolboys and teen pop stars.

I have a healthy respect for her athletic prowess. The fact that I watch her videos on a constant loop changes nothing.
I met Annie at a CF seminar two years ago. She is really nice and very fit (I had the honor of doing Tabata B2B squats next to her. . .I looked really weak).

She's also half my height.

I'm Ron Nelson, Rush Chairman; damn glad to meet you.

That's why he's the president of the club by default. He ran unapposed and made The Iceman Sgt. at Arms.

I was relegated to Rush Chairman when I found out there was no treasury to be the treasurer of. I've put way too much thought into this little fantasy world.
