Kettle bell swings are a great hip extension movement to build explosion through the hips. We focus a majority of the time on the forward swing, keeping the kettle bell close, letting the hips do the work, and keeping the arms relaxed, but how often do yo think of the return. Jeff Martone does a great job of explaining how to counter balance the return of the kettle bell swing and why it is so important. So, if you find you are really out of breath or you grip is getting taxed early during kettle bell swings use this video to help refine your kettle bell swings.

Crossfit WOD – “Core and Stability”

“Core and Stability”

3 Rounds for time:
25 GHD Situps
50 Double unders
100-Foot Double DB/KB overhead walk (70lbs/53lbs per hand)

Athletes must have been on GHD for some volume
in the past 2-3 weeks to do all 3 rds of 25.

 

                           

For those of you looking to try, level up, or just increase your GHD sit up capacity here are two videos that explain the points of performance of a GHD sit up and the physiological reason why it is so important to build to the capacity over time. Just like any other movement GHD sit ups are very potent if done at high volume so it is important to follow a progression over time to build capacity as well as proper range of motion.

Crossfit WOD – “DT meet Cindy, Cindy meet DT”

Here are a couple tips from the Crossfit Competitors Course on how to make your barbell cycling more efficient. Preventing the thud on the thigh might be as simple as pushing your knees and hips back to make the transition smoother. Practice with an empty barbell first, perfect, then increase gradually over time.
