The biggest imbalances and deficiencies in Crossfitters

Episode 36Brute Strength


Injuries can be one of the most devastating experiences that athletes, or anyone for the matter, can go through. Not only can it completely halt all progress, but it can be a huge emotional and mental blow to all of the hard work you’ve already put in – so why wait until an injury to start caring for your body? It’s always better to be proactive than reactive and that’s exactly why you need to learn about “Performance Care” with @activeliferx.

In this episode I link up with the guys from Active Life RX to go over some of their injury prevention techniques including: end-range strength & mobility, how to strengthen your tendons/ joints with tempo work, and structural balancing for your shoulders, ankle, hips, and more.
