I also coached another guy who occasionally crossfits through the Humbler today. Key points and items fixed included punching the head through at the top of the thrusters in order to achieve lockout and using explosive opening of the hips during the SDHPs to ride the bar to the top, instead of upright rowing it.

Good start to the week.
