Gymnastic Skills: Begin with Hollow body!

Want to get better at your deadlift? Think about how you load your spine (don’t use your psoas to bring your spine into extension!) and whether you have full tension throughout your entire body (like the hollow body position.)


Bring it! Rest is for the people who do not have something to accomplish today. Come do work, even if it is a recovery wod or 2 hours of mobility. Remember that work should be done with enthusiasm and it should be done well. Focus on perfecting your form, this leads to increased efficiency allowing you to go harder, heavier, and faster, for a longer period of time.

Bring it for those around you who struggle when you do not show up. Did anyone see Miguel’s awesome comment on the blog yesterday about Jessie Ingram—how she inspired him at the CrossFit Roseville Women’s Gauntlet and how she pushes him to work hard every day? Participate on the blog and on the Facebook Page (all half dozen or so Facebook groups…).
