The Kids Skill Focus For April Is The Push Up

So much of what we do in CrossFit, or any movement task for that matter, requires good stabilization of the middle of our bodies so that we can move efficiently with the arms and legs.  Working on “plank” and subsequently, the push up, is a very effective way to develop body awareness for stabilization of our midline. As we move into the inverted position of a handstand, we can also build stability and control around the shoulder joint.  This month, the Kids classes will be working on Plank skills, Push ups, and variations on the Handstand push up to improve midline stabilization and upper extremity strength.
