Below, is Jack Korbutov, right at the moment where Josh (his judge) can call a good rep on the the chest-to-bar pull-up. Also, note his taped hands. If you’d like to learn more about hand health and CrossFit, check out this article.
Also, for what it’s worth, Korbutov is a person you MIGHT want to become good friends with. He owns an amazing business called Art of Medicine, which is a compounding pharmacy that collaborates with your physician to customize any and all your meds (and your pet’s meds too!) for what is most easily absorbed and implemented for you. He specializes in pain management as well which, for many of you who have dealt with the way that prolonged soreness or poor recovery can keep you from training, means you can use a specially formulated pain cream instead of ingesting some liver-damaging pain pills to keep moving. I think this old-school apothecary concept is SO cool and 100% appealing to CrossFitters who want everything to be as real and effective as it can be. Check him out on Facebook or talk to him when he sits at our desk on Monday mornings – he can tell you all about it!
