Forget about the little asterik by your name on the scoreboard, and don't let ego be what dictates the load on your weaker exercises. progressions- squats, choose a weight that you can maintain proper form. if you cant squat your body weight you need to get stronger, so don't go to light, choose a weight that you can properly squat for 8-10 reps. double unders- i would like every one to really try the double unders [ frustrating for some, but it's the only way to get better at them], if your not gonna "man up", then 3 singles= 1 double under. ring dips- heels on box [ l-sit position] make the depth of those dips 90 degrees and up to lock out. if your not quite there yet, use the squat rack/band for your dips. hit it hard!!!!! check out this interview by opt [definately one of the most well rounded crossfitter's in the world] about training smarter not harder. http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/CrossFit_SCL1OPTInterview2.mov Pops
