This week we’re going to do a lot of hanging around. We’ll be on the bars, working knees to elbows, ball ups, and skin the cats. Practicing these gymnastics moves taxes your core, back, hips, shoulders, and grip, developing great core to extremity strength. If you’ve been working on a kipping pull-up, or getting more kipping pull-ups, skin the cats can help in developing the necessary shoulder mobility and pulling strength. These movements are fun to learn and practice. At CrossFit Fenway you get to be a kid again on our jungle gym.
