The Trinity

So much of the training that we perform at Crossfit is about facilitating a vicious "triple extension" in the athlete's ankles, knees, and hips. Being able to keep the back straight under load and force, stacked neatly over the hips, while generating the coveted triple expression of lower extremity extension power is very much at the heart of sport and performance. We worship it.

And seeing it expressed beautifully in our athletes makes us want to cry a little.

So here you go, SFCF Triple Extension Artists.

Nice explosiveness coming from the bad ass SF crew.

Completely off topic, but I promised some of you I'd post this (many of you may have seen this already). Check out the muscle-up at the beginning! Incredible! And make sure you watch till the end... The dismount is a stroke of genius.

I am waiting for Boz to do that entire routine in a workout vs the 'dreamcrusher' navy seal.

That youtube is insane. The muscle up looks just unreal, like he's an elevator or something. Beautiful.

I never realized until I started coming to SFCF and messing around on the rings, how incredibly strong those ring gymnasts are. Very impressive.
