Notes: I had already done and filmed the qualifier, but after viewing the video I felt unsure about them counting some reps from the OHS in the top position, from the angle it doesn't look like i open the hip completely, so I redid it and went faster. Always be your own harshest critic, nothing can come back to haunt you if you hold yourself to the same standard as you hold others. This is the first of 3 qualifiers, it should be interesting to see where they go, the feel so far is light and fast, which isn't my greatest strength. The residue of something like this is a forearm pump and a nasty little cough that follows you for a day.

I had no intention of competing on this job as the open left me beat up, but whats the worst that could happen? Most people fear competing, of putting themselves out there for others to judge, this shouldn't dissuade your ambition. Give a high amount of though to what you think of yourself, and pay little to what others think.
