Favorite Lift / Movement: Front Squats. Haven’t done them in years, but I really want a bigger butt, so I’m excited about all the CF moves that incorporate squats.
Least Favorite Lift / Movement: Snatch. Don’t like the name and, apparently, I suck at technical moves. CF is killing me ego, but I love the challenge!
Fav WOD: Too soon to tell. However, I do love doing handstands, squats, deadlifts and bench. Feel free to put that one together and I’ll call it my fav.
Current CF goals: To stop feeling like a clumsy broad. I want to get stronger, certainly, but I’d also like to understand the techniques of the lifts…remembering which move is which is also a goal.
One thing no one would know about me: I’m a mother to 5 kids ranging from 3-19 years old, and would have more if I wasn’t almost 100 years old and they weren’t so expensive to raise.
