GRIP WIDTHS: Did you know that varying your grip on the bar will improve your performance? It's true. ••• I want to look specifically at the Kipping and Butterfly pull-ups. ••• ??Kipping Pull-Ups: . 1. You move through a horizontal-to-vertical movement pattern. . 2. Doesn't require the as much movement within the shoulder joint (as compared to butterflies), meaning it's much more comfortable on the body. . 3. I take a shoulder-width grip because it allows me an easier time engaging the lats, and pulling my chin above the bar. Grip will vary based on shoulder and thoracic spine mobility. ••• ??Butterfly Pull-Ups: . 1. You move through a circular movement pattern. . 2. Requires the ball of your shoulder joint to consistently move around the  socket, making this an uncomfortable position for some athletes with shoulder issues. . 3. I grip the bar a few inches outside of my shoulders, because it allows me to move comfortably through the circular motion, especially in the front of the rep, when you need to push your chest forward of the bar (after the chin comes above the bar). ••• Everyone is different. Which means, everyone will have a unique grip. Play around with different widths, and see which one feels best for you. ••• ?Seminar Day @facinggiantscrossfit .

Two weeks ago, I was lucky enough to spend my first trip in Canada with the community of @bedrock_crossfit. ••• ??Here’s what really stuck out to me: . The coaching & ownership of the business. ••• At this point, I’ve experienced my fair share of fitness facilities, and had the pleasure of working with tons of incredible coaches. . Bedrock CrossFit is easily one of the most successful programs I’ve ever seen. ••• Dawn Krpan runs a well-oiled rig at Bedrock (no pun intended), with smart programming, and a clear passion for her community. ••• They focus on moving correctly, staying healthy, and using fitness to strengthen the body, rather than tear it down. . It’s one of the best approaches I’ve seen. ••• The coaches are knowledgeable about not only CrossFit movements, but about the body itself, and how we should be physically functioning as human beings. ••• It was exciting to hear that they already focused on a handful of principles that I also coach by. . Hallelujah! ••• If you’re in the Calgary, Alberta area, or just dropping by, I highly recommend Bedrock CrossFit. . You won’t find better coaches, or better business owners. ••• They’re doing great thing for the CrossFit community! ••• ?BreazealGymnastics.com ••• ?? @ripfix | Breazeal20 ?? @wodfitters | KATI15 ?? @victorygrips | Breazeal ••• #BreazealGymnasticsSeminar . . . . . . #BreazealGymnastics #VictoryGrips #Grips #fitnessmotivation #Fitness #Canada #Calgary #Gymnastics #ringmuscleups #headstand #handstand #travel #travelblogger #duespaid #1stphorm #1stphormathletesearch #cbd #purespectrum @purespectrumhemp

He was a 2008 graduate of the Air Force Academy, where he became well known for his athleticism, leadership and strength of character. He was a sports standout in high school and at the Academy, and while serving in the Air Force, he inspired many to start CrossFit.

He is survived by his wife, Capt. Dana Lyon, and many other friends and family members.

In order to get your elbows into a high rack position, you need a sufficient amount of lat flexibility.? . The lat muscles span from the low back and attaching on your humerus. When elongated they allow your arm to move up and over your head. However, just because you can raise your arm above shoulder height, doesn’t mean the lats are flexible enough for a quality front rack position.? . Take Robby for example. From the start it’s hard to tell but watch his right elbow. It’s difficult for him to maintain the high elbow rack positon compared to his left. He can also clearly raise his right arm above shoulder height.? . Sufficient lat flexibility allows you to raise the arm, externally rotate it and isometrically contract in this position to aid in core stability and trunk stiffness.? . When I placed him on his back, pulled his arms into external rotation and tried to move his arms overhead, you can see he clearly lacks lat flexibility on his right compared to his left. (I didn’t show it but he has a good amount of external shoulder rotation on his right side)? . In the front rack position without any warm up, he could easily lift his left elbow more than his right. After a few minutes of foam rolling and stretching the lats I retested and he showed great improvements in flexibility on that test and the ability to get his elbows higher into a more efficient rack position.?? . To see more of the lat flexibility exercises I have Robby, check out the blog article linked in my bio? . Shout out to Robby from @do_work_crossfit for being today’s model, @3d4medical with the Complete Anatomy app for the visual of the body, @eleikosport for the weights & @velaasa for the weightlifting shoes featured today?? ___________________________________________ This is the 53rd #SquatUclub eligible post.

| BMU 3 POSITION DRILL | ….. ??I say it a lot at our @cfgymnastics courses “Approach gymnastics skills as you would weightlifting. Build technique & strength in each position- then combine the parts to make a whole.” …… ??Just like you train positions with a PVC pipe – here we train EACH position in a scaled version to build muscle memory and better technique. ….. ?BUILD ON EACH POSITION: ??You can see each round a skill is added.: •Until you understand & correctly execute a position – do not move on. Work on virtuosity ???? . ?bending your arms in position 2? Then work that until you can pull down on bar in hollow with straight arms! . ?Reiterating bad movement will just frustrate you in the end and won’t build a better foundation ……….. ?DID YOU KNOW: The @cfgymnastics course is for all levels?! More info at training.crossfit.com …. ?WANT TO WORK ONLINE WITH ME? *Click my bio link to work online with me & @thebarbellphysio?? ….. #cfgcoach #cfgymnastics #mastersgamesathlete #crossfitgames #crossfit #crossfittraining #reebok #wodndone #gymnasty #gymgypsyjournal #risingcrossfit #reebok #pamelagnon #gymnastics #pamelagnonrepostit

| BREAKING DOWN BAR MUSCLEUP | ….. ?Have the strength but struggling with timing & technique? ….. ??Some may call this technique a “hybrid” BMU since it uses a slight technique from the glide kip – but there are clear differences …. ?HOW TO EXECUTE: 1. Gain tension by “holding” the arch in front of the rig . 2. You will then head into a slight pike as you see your toes start to rise you will need to execute the next step efficiently in order to get hips closer to the rig AND stop the toes from continuing to rise. . 3. Squeeze glutes & quads to hit an “open” hollow WHILE you are pulling down and around the rig. Both are vital to success in position three. Make sure eyes look ahead and not at ceiling (you don’t want to open ribs by looking at ceiling) . 4. Then press down to support. ….. ?ADVICE * Use your swing to your “advantage” by feeling to the “timing” of each position (don’t rush things) . * Do not pull INTO the bar – think pull AROUND then DOWN . * Stay TIGHT! ….. ?Need more help/coaching? . *Click my bio link to work online with me & @thebarbellphysio?? . *Register for a weekend @cfgymnastics course & learn all the fundamentals of CrossFit Gymnastics skills???? ….. #cfgcoach #crossfitgames #gymnasty #cfg #pamelagnon #crossfit #mastersathlete #crossfitgames #mastersgamesathlete #gymnasticsconditioning

A huge problem I see with olympic lifters, crossfitters and powerlifters is wrist pain. After unloading the wrist to get rid of pain it's important to slowly load that area back up. Here's a good progression from @tony.comella.? .? GRADED EXPOSURE? —? The videos above demonstrates a sequence I put together for someone with persistent wrist pain. After the initial assessment, we determined the best route for recovery would be graded exposure to wrist extension, as most symptoms were created from these position (i.e. plank, push up).? —? Sometimes there will be discomfort with rehab and that is okay, as is the case with this example. Patient was educated on expectations, as well as given permission to perform these exercises with an acceptable level of pain (person dependent), with goal of minimizing soreness the next day.? —? These exercises are specific to the person, but can be used as a general sequence for progression of wrist loading. In this particular case, these were progressed over the course of 2-3 months before individual achieved goal of performing body weight push ups with no pain.? —? 1?? Quadruped rocking.? 2?? Crawl Position rocking? 3?? Crawl Position Anti-Rotation? 4?? Plank rocking? 5?? Plank Anti-rotation? 6?? Feet elevated plank anti-rotation.? 7?? @Side plank? —? These drills are also appropriate for anyone looking to prep their wrists, shoulders, and/or trunk before working out.? #performancetherapy #prehab #fitness #exercise #physicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #DPT #DPTstudent #physio #physiotherapy #chiro #chiropractic #mobility #fitness #correctiveexercise #movebetter #movement #sportsrehab #athletictrainer#strengthandconditioning #personaltrainer @powermonkeyfitness @championptp #crossfit #powerlifting #olympicweightlifting #olympiclifting
