One of the primary benefits of CrossFit is that we seek to understand the best way to improve our fitness by looking at the largest possible group of varying schools of movement. Using a broad spectrum look at all the world has to offer to improve our fitness we can constantly improve what we are doing as CrossFitters. We are not limited to taking (stealing, borrowing?) great ideas about body control, movement, power, etc. from gymnastics and olympic weight lifting and endurance athletes, we also look at power lifting and yoga and really any school of thought that has to do with health, and fitness.

Today’s Wod we get to play with one and one quarter squats which requires good breath control so we can maintain a solid midline during the lift. In the latest mobilitywod.com series we see how to mobilize our breathing mechanics so that we can properly use our diaphragm to remain stiff when we need to lift heavy objects.
