This is the first part of Episode 3 of the Boz and Todd Experience. This session took place at Black and Gold CrossFit in West Point, NY on April 25th and 26th, 2009.
In this episode, Boz coaches Ashley on her pullups. Ashley is a multisport athlete, competing in Olympic-style weightlifting, track (heptathlon), and rugby for the US Military Academy at West Point. Her best lifts are about 155lbs in the snatch and about 200lbs in the clean and jerk. She is a strong, all around athlete.
Her self-proclaimed weakness is pull-ups. She only has a few, explaining that the weightlifters were not allowed to train their upper bodies for fear of becoming inflexible. Boz takes her through a multitude of drills that can be practiced to develop stronger pull-ups.
