21-22SEPT17: Hangin’ Around

)_Today we will attack an exercise utilizing our pull-bars for the first time: Hanging Knee Raises. This movement is great for building trunk and grip strength, for developing calluses on your hands (quit complaining – they are NOT blisters!!!), and for improving our back/shoulder mobility; all of which will transfer over into pretty much everything we do in CrossFit (they’ll also work wonders in getting those 6-pack abs). Expect your hands to get a little rough and your abs to get a little sore from this one…small prices to pay in becoming more prepared for the zombie apocalypse!!
