Sunday Reading

Breath control is critical for increasing and maintaining the structural integrity of the torso while under heavy loads. The supporting musculature is alone inadequate—in order to adequately stabilize the spine, the abdominal and thoracic cavities must be pressurized. Additionally, we need to create as broad of a base for the torso as possible—the rationale for this should be obvious if one considers the structural integrity of a pyramid versus an upside-down pyramid.

A Beginner’s Guide to Making the Most of CrossFit Classes

As a beginner, how should you best approach an exercise program (CrossFit or similar) that involves a lot of technical movements involving the whole body and requires competency in areas such as strength, stability and mobility, to minimise risk of injury and maximise results towards your goals?

The Safety of CrossFit From a Physical Therapy Viewpoint

The trouble with this topic is that many of those seeking an answer lack the technical background to understand it when given. Luckily you guys don’t have that problem.
