A Variety of Muscle Use!!!

As you may have predicted, today’s workout will be focused on gymnastics. Your skill level will be determined by your strength to body weight ratio, not to mention flexibility, balance, accuracy and other general physical skills! Today is a good day for you to forget about the clock and focus on movement. I feel that sometimes with intensity of the workout the skill development is lost because we lose the ability to keep our legs straight in that perfect L-sit position and that defeats the purpose of perfect practice! On that note, the work is based on your own integrity. Below I have posted a video from CrossFit Paradiso that demonstrates some good progressions for this workout.
