These old things?
Let's talk about those lower extremities. The ol' sticks, you know? As bi-peds, learning to extend the hip and leg is pretty critical. We need these pillars of support to be exactly that, not rickety old picket fence supports.
Ever wonder why it's almost universally attractive to both men and women to have nice legs and, uh, gluteus maximus? We depend on these old things to get us around and out of jams on a daily basis. The more development down there, the more potential function just about everywhere. Don't take those sticks for granted!
I took a few pics of the CrossFit Games this weekend. Here is one of the workout stations I helped out at on Saturday:
Can you spot the OG SFCFer in this pic?
I was fortunate enough to spend the evening after the games on the santa cruz boardwalk with Pat Barber from CF Santa Cruz, Shahan Contractor and Chris Spealler from CF Park City, and Dutch Lowy of CF ATM. Yes, we were the coolest people there...
See you all in the AM,
