Read and watch this and learn yourself something:
Bottom line: use correct positioning and improve your shoulder stability and coincidentally your performance. Next time you hop onto the pull-up bar, take note of how you grip it and what your shoulders do. A better shoulder position = stronger, more stable shoulder joint = healthy shoulders = much love!
For those that don’t know, Vince competed in his FIRST CrossFit competition this past weekend. I cannot begin to express how proud I am of him for doing it. He did incredibly well and you should all ask him about it. He had an absolute blast and got an entirely new perspective of how overwhelmingly supportive the greater CrossFit community truly is.
I encourage EVERYONE to, at some point, put their fitness to the test. Every weekend there is some sort of competition, and they all have scaled divisions to make it possible for anyone to compete. If you are interested in competing, see me and we’ll find a competition for you to enter and get you ready! Remember, if you were part of a running/riding/triathlon club, you’d enter races to see how you’d perform. Well, you are all a part of a CrossFit club, so you might as well enter some ‘races’ to see how you perform!
