Continuing with our rack position focus, (part 1 here) we’ve got some more, even tackling the wrists this time around. Remember, improving this position isn’t just improving our weightlifting, but our pressing, pulling, and general shoulder, wrist, and elbow health. Enjoy!
We’re going to take a break from the lower body, and spend time on the upper body with a new mobility segment. This time around we’re focusing on the “rack position”. Much more useful then just for weightlifting, restrictions in this position are going effect our pressing, pulling, and overall shoulder health.

In the family of our gymnastics pressing this is one of the more challenging feats for most of us mere mortals. Developing them first starts with the development of a good push up, which in […]
This month we’re finally tackling something that has driven many of us crazy. The “Double Under”.
