EXERCISE TO IMPROVE OVERHEAD MOBILITY
“Here we are using a 10kg bar and the top of a kettle bell to act as a target and guide. It is important he remains active in the position rather than just relaxing whilst there. Overtime he will become more comfortable maintaining these positions and will be able to stay longer there.
If you can’t get into the right position, these exercises are extremely taxing. A simple way to integrate the exercise is by using tabata holds 20s active over the KB 10s relaxed behind the neck, 4-8 times. Give it a go and see how you do.
As the sport of CrossFit evolves, the inability to move well is becoming a huge influencing factor on your ability to perform, therefore making sure you are putting in the work to improve your positions is becoming even more important.”
