Matt, Allyson and Jake say, "Don't set that kettlebell down!"
Yesterday we posted Coach Greg Glassman's original 100 word prescription for world class fitness. Coach Glassman advocates the mastery of basic gymnastic skills. In his article "What is Fitness?" he describes gymnastics as:
"...the traditional competitive sport that we’ve seen on TV but all activities like climbing, yoga, calisthenics, and dance where the aim is body control. It is within this realm of activities that we can develop extraordinary strength (especially upper body and trunk), flexibility, coordination, balance, agility, and accuracy."
We, of course, love that yoga and climbing were considered by Coach Glassman to be important in the development of body control and general conditioning. Good body control is not only important in the development of fitness, but, it will also help you when you fall, slip, or trip. Yoga is an important compliment to CrossFit, and that's why we offer a yoga class 6 days a week.
Today you might get to improve your gymnastics skills with the burpee. Watch this entertaining video on the history of the burpee.
