CROSSFIT SYOSSET/ TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6TH

I KNOW I MENTION THIS OFTEN IN CLASS AND ON THE EMAILS BUT I THINK IT IS WORTH MENTIONING AGAIN AND AGAIN.
IF YOU LISTEN AND ACTUALLY DO IT WHEN YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO IT WILL PREVENT INJURY AT A HIGH PERCENTAGE.
STAYING TIGHT IN YOUR CORE IS A PRACTICE THAT UNFORTUNATELY IS NOT TAUGHT ENOUGH.  IT IS FOR THE MOST PART OVERLOOKED WHEN SOMEONE IS LEARNING TO LIFT CORRECTLY.
STAYING TIGHT NOT ONLY PREVENTS INJURY BUT IT ALSO HELPS MAINTAIN POSTURE THROUGHOUT THE MOVEMENTS AND KEEPS YOU FOCUSED ON YOUR MOVEMENT.
MOST PEOPLE UNFORTUNATELY DON’T KNOW HOW TO STAY TIGHT, WHEN I ASK A NEW PERSON HOW TO DO IT OFTEN I HEAR “SUCK YOUR GUT IN RIGHT”!
NO, NOT RIGHT.

YOU NEED TO PRACTICE THIS WHEN YOU’RE NOT LIFTING SO IT BECOMES COMMON PLACE WHEN YOU DO.
PUSH YOUR GUT OUT AND MAKE  YOUR ABS WORK HARD TO MAINTAIN CORE STABILITY.
JUST THINK WHAT YOU WOULD DO TO STAY TIGHT WHEN SOMEONE TRIES TO PUNCH YOU IN THE STOMACH.
IF YOU SUCK YOUR GUT IN THEIR FIST WILL GO RIGHT THROUGH YOU!
PUSH YOUR GUT OUT AND STAY TIGHT.

I CAN’T STRESS THIS ENOUGH, AND NOT JUST WHEN YOU LIFT BUT WHEN YOU ARE DOING BODYWEIGHT MOVEMENTS ALSO.
