17.2 Workout Analysis

Week 2 of the 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games Open brought us a 12-minute AMRAP of 50-foot weighted walking lunges, 16 toes-to-bars (T2B) / bar muscle-ups (BMUs) and 8 dumbbell power cleans.

This is our second time seeing BMUs in the Open, the first being 16.3. But this year was a bit different. You had to put in a lot of work just to get there. In 16.3, you only had to complete 10 snatches at 75/55 lb. to get a chance at the BMUs. In contrast, you had to perform 78 reps of 17.2 in order to have a chance at the BMUs.

11 Neck and Back Stretching Exercises in Pictures!

Most of us spend the majority of the day not using any muscles at all, sitting and slouching over a keyboard, which can wreak havoc on your hips, back, shoulders and neck. Stretching is important as it lengthens your muscles, allowing you to use them to their fullest capability. It helps increase blood flow to our muscles, improves our physical performance and decreases risk of injuries. Furthermore, stretching wakes us up, helps us breathe better, sleep better, and gives us better posture.
