3 Rotator Cuff Exercises To Try

The shoulder is the most often injured body part in CrossFit workouts.  That’s probably due to how shoulder intensive most WODs can be.

✔️snatches

✔️pull ups

✔️push ups

✔️overhead presses

That’s just to name a few.  Quite honestly, if it involves your arms, the rotator cuff is probably involved.

The shoulder is not a weight-bearing joint.  In other words it’s not like the hips or knees which are designed to take stress everyday.  Therefore we need to show our shoulders some love to help keep up with the demands of CrossFit.

Alright, Let's Talk 2018 Intramural Open

I heard you might have some questions about the District CrossFit Intramural Open starting on the 22nd.  So I figured this would be a good time for you and me to chat about it

Yeah I did!  So, uhh, what is it…

Really??  You didn’t even read the basic thing I sent out?  Fine.  I dont wanna give you the full run down on the CrossFit Open so just click here.

Why I Dislike Tom Brady and Respect SoulCycle

I don’t like Tom Brady. It’s not jealousy. Ok, it’s not ENTIRELY jealousy. It’s not because of his 5 superbowls. It’s not because of his millions of dollars or the fact that he might secretly lead the life of a fancy dog. I don’t like Tom Brady because he’s a microcosm of what’s wrong with my industry.
