The aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness. We have sought to build a program that will best prepare trainees for any physical contingency — not only for the unknown, but for the unknowable. After looking at all sport and physical tasks collectively, we asked what physical skills and adaptations would most universally lend themselves to performance advantage. Capacity culled from the intersection of all sports demands would quite logically lend itself well to all sport.

With an emphasis on education, the CrossFit Breaux Bridge staff holds nearly every certification that CrossFit HQ offers—this ensures that we know how to get you fitter both faster and safer. It is a common misconception that if someone is good at something, they must be good at teaching it. We have found this to not necessarily be the case and at CFBB, we put our effort into getting YOU healthy and well while also maintaining a positive example.

Core strenght is important in CrossFit and so is core stamina. The ability to sustain prolonged physical effort is what stamina is and that is what we will be doing today.  Using proper muscle recruitment on the GHD will help with going further in the WOD. On the GHD, kicking up into the pad, locking out the knees will engage the quads helping to get us up.  The GHD setup is a great core movement. We need to make sure that we engage the core, from the top of the knees to the sternum. On the way down we can’t just let ourselves fall back uncontrolled. We need to stay tight and not let ourselves loose control of our midline. Keep that chin tucked and not letting the head fall back. The muscle-up requires finesse, timing, and strength to string them together.  Going off of yesterday’s gymnastics skill movements, the hollow rock and superman, will help in getting a muscle-up and even a pull-up. #cfbb #cfsl #core . . .

MY ACHING BACK: What to Watch For in the Deadlift

  If your back is sensitive, tender, tight or sore from all of those heavy deadlifts this week, ask yourself these 6 questions:   1. Did I screw my feet into the mat, tightening the top of the leg into the socket of the hip, causing the arch of my foot to rise and my knees to track over my toes?   Good set-up position   2. Did I hinge at the hips first, thereby putting the weight into my posterior chain (the muscle groups that run down your backside, i.e. the traps, the back of the shoulder, the spinal erectors that run down the sides of your spinal column, the glutes,  hamstrings and calves)?   Or did I initiate the set-up with my knees bending? A knee-initiated deadlift set-up   3. Did I maintain a low lumbar curve, holding my lower back tight both in the initial lift from the ground AND when standing at full extension at the top of the lift?  Or did I lose the curve basically allowing the weight of the bar to pull at the low back? Loss of lumbar curve   4. Did I maintain a braced torso?  … Pinching the shoulders together; keeping the abdominal muscles pulled in, belly button to the spine and rib cage the same distance from the hip bones during the entire lift?  Or did I allow my belly to sag? Slight sag in the belly   5. Did I keep the weight in my feet between the ball of the foot and heel?  Or did I roll up on to the toes, shifting the weight into... read more
