Back to Basics

Often times in crossfit we get blinded by the flashy and impressive gymnastics moves such as muscle ups and handstand push ups.  Or just get excited to see someone lift insane amounts of weight and strive to do that ourselves.  Although, in order to do those things you need a strong base of strength and conditioning.  Squats, push ups, and kettle bell swings are some of the best exercises you can do to develop that strong base.  There is no such thing as muscle ups without push ups and it is almost impossible to move large things long distances quickly without the base of strength developed by squatting and doing kettle bell swings.  Come in today and have fun getting back to basics.

    1. scrappy, you could try upping your volume on squats for a month or so, or my personal favorite, isometrics! you’ll get stronger in the hole. great way to break a plateau. get some!

      1. Thanks Mike! I had an IT band injury earlier in the spring but should be past it by now. I’ll spend some extra time out in the rack room and see how it goes.
