Workout of the Day: Thursday, 8.29.13
Today’s WOD is going to make your shoulders feel VERY funny – while throwing in a little high-volume pressing is a big part of staying ready for anything, it’s important to counteract ANY training you do with thorough recovery. Check out this blog post from Dr. Perry Nickelston of Stop Chasing Pain on a simple way to reset your shoulders. If this all seems a bit mangled and confusing to you I would HIGHLY recommend coming out to Dr. Perry’s seminar being held here at CFCC on October 12th. He’ll be covering his method of assessment and correction for many common problems that CrossFitters have, and will also be specifically focusing on general limitations felt in the Overhead Squat. All the info is here!
