Why do we want to avoid worm push ups? The pushup is performed to build strength

I love this quote above by C.S. Lewis. It resonates with me on many levels…

Here is what I would like y’all to takeaway from this, Commit to the Process.

Schedule Change

Written by Saskpro Crossfit on June 9, 2014

Attendance has been extremely low in our 11:30AM Saturday Beginner class. For the duration of the Summer we will no longer have a 11:30AM Beginner class. All Beginners are welcome during the 8:00AM or 10:30AM All Level Classes. :-)))))
We will ensure enough room for everyone in these 2 classes. Regular Class time will resume after the September Long weekend.

Coach Myles on Hip Mobility

Written by Saskpro Crossfit on June 6, 2014

Increasing hip mobility will improve a wide range of movements in class, such as the squat and all of its variations, the olympic lifts, deadlifts, jumping, and running, as well as improve everyday well being. The hips are the centre of the body and are
