FC: 6:32 Rx’d (2 Green KB)

Sit-ups: 4:53

Tips for the farmer’s carry:
Hook Grip! Hard to wrap the thumb, but the better you can, the better the grip — and the grip is the first thing to go.
Speed! Fast feet = less time under tension.
Stay organized: you should be as focused on good form as you were when you DL. Stay tight, head up, shoulders back
Pay attention to picking up and putting down correctly! I got no rep’d on #19 when I dumped on the ground instead of setting them down under control. doh!
