2009 Me vs 2011 Me

Here is a video back before the 2009 Crossfit Games.

Here is a video of me doing the same workout 18 months later (and 30lbs more on bar).
Which one looks better?

There is 30lb more on the bar for more reps and much better back stability in the second video. 

I would kick my ass if I met myself 18 months earlier.  

Sometimes I get frustrated with the workouts but seeing the difference here in that short amount of time is amazing.  There has been so much improvement over the last couple years.  I think it's amazing how every Crossfit athlete has seen a ton of improvement.  The caliber of athletes in the Crossfit competitions are so much higher.  Where is the ceiling for human potential in the sport of fitness?

Here are my workouts from the past couple of days.
