Sam has a nice front rack.
Remember when dumbbell front rack walking lunges were new and scary? We were introduced to this potent movement during last year's CrossFit Games Open. Now, these are a regular component of our lunge repertoire.
The front rack, be it with a barbell or dumbbell, can be such a struggle for many of us. While holding dumbbells in the front rack is certainly easier than a barbell (because of the neutral wrist position) it does require mobility in the shoulders, elbows, wrists, and flexibility in the triceps and lateral muscles. The banded front rack distraction shown in today's Mobility Monday video is one of our favorite movement preps. If you have a band at home, you can do this by fixing the band to a banister or door handle. Don't worry, we will also do this in class today.
