Notes: Got to Crossfit Bedford Hills and met one of the co-owners Mike.  Really good guy and he was gracious enough to share his space with me for a few days.  They have been open since April and have a really great box running.  Man I wish I has something like that in my back yard when I was still living in Westchester.  

Warmed up with my usual routine and I was feeling surpassingly good.  No hang-over from sleeping on an air mattress but my knees were a little creaky.  Push jerks were feeling good today.  I am finally grasping how the jerk should feel.  Driving with the legs as hard as you can and then quickly retreating the hips as you pull the bar back with the upper back and lock out the arms.  Very happy with the weights I hit today.

I finally had a breakthrough with my strict CTB pullups.  I have always tried to pull straight under the bar with the strict CTB pullups.  Today I followed more of an arching motion and was able to get my chest to the bar without my shoulders slumping forward.

Tester was good tough my power clean technique was a bit off.  Happy with the pace I was able to push.
