Hopefully you can all get a visual of the consequences of this event. This is essentially what happens with sloppy technique, short, tight connective tissue or imbalances in motor control and strength around a joint.
Skills Lab is every Thursday at 4:45 at The Confluence, (Green Mountain CrossFit).
This week in Skills Lab we will be learning how to build a strong foundation. Mid-line stabilization is much more than having a "strong core". It involves mastery of integration of all of the skills listed below. Human movement should not me thought of as individual joint patterns, but as a symphony of movements from the body's center out to the hand and feet.
This week we will be looking at the Air, Box and Back Squat.
Do you have a Lab Partner? If not, please bring a friend. There is strength in numbers.... and more potential to see funky movement patterns.
Learning to recognize position and technique errors in others helps develop self-awareness and a collaborative effort to continually strengthen movement patterns outside the Lab.
