The final CrossFit open workout was released today. 5 weeks, 5 workouts. Raw emotion from everyone giving each workout their everything! It's a been an absolute pleasure sharing the experience and capturing the highs and lows for @crossfit_shapesmiths 👊

"Essa tal de vida é mesmo complicada, né? Tem horas que bate uma tristeza. Tem horas que já não sabemos mais de onde tirar forças. Muitas vezes perdemos a motivação e o final do túnel parece cada vez mais escuro. Mas, se serve de consolo, acredite em mim: é complicado para todo mundo. Todo mundo mesmo. Cada um de nós tem um peso a carregar. O que não pode faltar, nunca, em hipótese alguma, é coragem e determinação. O seu problema não pode ser maior que a sua fé. Elimine o coitadismo do seu discurso. Entenda: a gravidade de um problema varia de acordo com o quanto você está ou não preparado para determinada situação. É tudo uma questão de quantas vezes você já passou por aquilo e o quanto está preparado para reagir. A dor depende da grossura da casca, do tamanho das feridas, do poder da armadura, da grossura do bigode, da resiliência do coração. Sobre já ter ou não passado pela mesma situação no passado. Sobre estar ou não preparado para resistir e enfrentar as dificuldades. O sobrevivente de um incêndio terá maiores condições de escapar do fogo sempre que precisar. Um náufrago dificilmente terá problemas ao voltar a conviver com a solidão. O término de um segundo amor não dói como o primeiro. Essa é a cruel lógica da vida. A de que você precisa de cicatrizes para aprender a suportar a navalha. Por isso, não tenha medo de viver. Um soldado está seguro no quartel, mas não é para isso que ele foi treinado. Enfrente a sua guerra diária ou viva sem medalhas. Acredite! A cada tombo sofrido você sempre se levantará mais forte. A verdade é que, só pode falar sobre a vida, quem já viveu o suficiente e, talvez, você ainda tenha vivido pouco. Por isso tantos tombos. Por isso tanta dor. A maturidade é o grande poço da sabedoria e o seu me parece ainda um pouco raso demais. A dor passa, o aprendizado fica. Tropeçar não é o problema. Cair e levantar faz parte do jogo. O perigo está em se apegar a pedra. Fortaleça os seus ombros. Encare a sua batalha. As pessoas nem sempre vão te ajudar a carregar a sua dor. Elas estão ocupadas carregando as próprias dores. Coragem! Procure se lembrar: sucesso não é sobre quem cai menos e, sim, quem se levanta mais rápido!" #TBT - 05/2016

People falling = 😂😂😂 I'm allowed to laugh because it's not me falling, for once.

This is a jumping exercise that I frequently do. @blakeleonstewart decided to "jump" in and attempt to clear 60 inches. Seemed logical 😎 Despite the video, the kid has serious bounce and eventually cleared this.

Side note: Can anyone tell that I grew up in a family with only brothers? When someone fails at something that you succeeded at - You LAUGH and bust their balls. No time to worry about feelings.

Where are my bros at that only had bros, too?? 🙋‍♂️👊

Should You Be Back Squatting?

Hands-Up Wall Squat Test

It's all about PROGRESSION.

The mobility demands of the back squat are far greater than that of the air squat. Unfortunately, many athletes prematurely rush for the barbell before adequate mobility is developed to perform the weighted exercise safely.

When a barbell is placed behind you neck, the torso must become far more upright when squatting in order to keep the bar path straight over the mid-foot. This change of position requires far greater hip, t-spine, and ankle mobility.

The Hands-Up Wall Squat is a tool to screen athletes for back squatting. This unloaded mobility screen forces the athlete into a very similar position that will be required when back squatting. If the athlete can perform 5 full depth squats with a 3 sec pause at the bottom without falling backward (and preserving proper midline stability), back squatting is appropriate.

How to perform the Hands-Up Wall Squat Test:

Stand 1 foot-length away from a wall (a shoe's distance away) and set up in your squat stance with your fingertips on the wall in front of you.

Go through the bracing sequence (glutes and abs on). Screw your feet into the ground. Then squat down to full depth (hip crease below parallel) by sending your hips back and driving the knees out wide.

Hold for 3 seconds at the bottom before standing. Repeat x5.

If you are unable to squat down without falling over, you fail the test and should not be back squatting. The best way to improve your mobility for this test is to do the same test but stop at your lowest point without falling down. Once you hit that depth, hold for 5 seconds. Repeat this drill 5-10 ten times daily. Your squat depth will improve!

Seriously, who cares if you can squat 300# if you can't reach full depth?

I challenge clients and coaches alike to think long-term. Poor positioning only leads to injury.

A final thought from my good friend @vegacrene, "Never for a minute allow your standards to retrograde, for its negative impact on your athletes performance will be profound." @mobilitywod @madlabgroup

17.5 for me was the best week and the most defining workout of the open for me. It was the first time I allowed myself to see what I am truly capable of and that my body is able to do so much more than I ever thought it was.
I attempted (and failed) many new things this last 5 weeksand learned a lot about myself. I can see now that I am truly a competitor and I have all the qualities and potential to be great. I just need to apply myself and not allow my head to get in the way.
Here's to learning and coming into a new season in my life!

If you want to move efficiently during your clean & jerk or thruster (ANYONE DOING THE CROSSFIT OPEN 17.5 WORKOUT) you must establish a solid front rack position. Your elbows need to be pushed up & out, with your hands outside shoulder width (this is an externally rotated position). This arm position will allow you to efficiently drive the bar into a stable overhead position (which means you'll create more power & waste less energy). Start this stretch kneeling next to a bench or high box. Keep your elbows together (as much as possible). Pull your hands as wide as possible. Next, tuck your hips under yourself (posterior tilt) as you pull your chest back & down (similar to the prayer stretch). Doing this will bring out a good stretch in the lats (sides of your back) & for some in the shoulder as well. Try not to arch your low back!! Hold this stretch for 5-10 seconds & do 5 rounds.
Re-test your front rack & see if you can get into a better position after. This will tell you if this exercise is right for your body!
