''The Odyssey I.'' (01.11.2010)

''Hip extension is the foundation of all good human movement. Powerful, controlled hip extension is necessary and nearly sufficient for elite athleticism. Necessary in that without powerful, controlled hip extension you are not functioning anywhere near your potential. Sufficient in the sense that everyone we've met with the capacity to explosively open the hip could also run, jump, throw, and punch with impressive force.''--CrossFit Training Guide: Movements
