Amazing feat for a CF Athlete..however....Deadlift - the lumbar curve is lost on her back, form is weak with respect to starting position, not enough bend in the knees...almost looks like a good morning. Squat Clean also displays rounding out the lumbar curve at the bottom showing loss of control/form....too much weight! Better off scaling this back a few notches to regain form. Tamara has alot of heart.....but you're gonna get hurt if you perform WOD's similar to this on a regular basis.
