7 Barbell Mobility Exercises to Help Crossfitters Improve Technique and Flexibility

Mobility is the key.

7. WIDE GRIP FRONT RAISE INTO BEHIND THE NECK PRESS

“The main goal was to address two common technical mistakes in the snatch and at the same time being challenged strength wise.”

Playing around with some barbell accessory on this fine evening in Madrid. I have never tried or seen anyone do this exercise before but it's a wide grip front raise into behind the neck press. The main goal was to address two common technical mistakes in the snatch and at the same time being challenged strength wise. (1) So many people let their wrists fall back in the overhead position, which often have the effect of the elbow externally rotating making it more prone to hyperextension and increases the risk of losing the bar behind. (2) Bar placement overhead is important yet many people either have the bar too far forward or too far back and if they manage to get it right it's rarely consistently. In this exercise you get to practice the overhead position both by stopping the front raise at the right time and when pressing the bar overhead again. ———————————————————————— Training Camps in Mallorca are now in full swing and will run until November.
