Jenni. After taking a look at the short vid, I think you will do great in the qualifier. Keep up the good work.

Some feedback. Your OHS. (Please anyone correct me if I am wrong). It's at 1:58 in the video.

I noticed as you hit your stick point in your OHS your lower back slightly tucks under. I point this out as it could be a possible point on injury depending on intensity and weight of OHS. I know from practical stand point I have strained my lower erectors before by having my butt curve at the bottom of the squat. This is usually a result of tightness in the hamstrings. I am sure you have done countless OHS. Really it's just a point of safety. Would hate to see you get injury before your qualifier.

Keep up the good work rooting for you.

Cheers Jordan

She was one of my instructors at level 1 in Charlotte. She should do very well, she is an absolutely amazing athelete.

What's the deadlift/KB WOD she's doing in the video? Anyone know?



Deadlift (225,155)
Kettle Swing (53,35)

Some went heavier than Rx.

You are an amazing athlete, trainer and most of all mentor. You have coached us and cheered us on during so many of our workouts and now it's time to cheer for you! You are truly an inspiration. Look out Alabama, Georgia, and Mississippi Jelli is ready to win. Fight for it.
