Alrighty the athlete of the month for August is Tyson "Rambo" Atkinson.. This man has thrown in double sessions when possible, stayed back for an extra class in the arvos, focused on good nutrition and all this got him his goals. 

At the start of the month he wanted to get below a particular body fat % and achieve 10 strict pull ups in a row. Rambo has achieved all the goals he set and also improved on so many other aspects of his training. 

When Rambo started CrossFit he was a big guy, could barley do pull ups in a blue band and body fat % a lot higher. He has been working so hard for so long and it was time to reward his efforts.

Great work tys… Keep working hard to achieve your goals. Aim higher and you'll always kill it.

Is it your ankles or hips that aren't allowing you to squat ATG (ass to grass). Check this video and perform this test. If you are unable to do this with ease then bet your bottom dollar that your squat isn't as good as you would like to due to tight ankles. 

So if you identified that it's your ankles get onto Mobility WOD and search ankles to find a video to help you fix this problem. Talk to me at the box also and I will give you some fixes to start squatting below parallele. 


Pistol and Handstand skills



5 rounds for time and weight

5 Clean and jerks

35 double unders

Pick your own weight. Something heavier then what you would do grace at but not so heavy that you are failing reps.
