With all our recent talk of midline stability and putting heavy stuff overhead, we figured we should give you some science-y references from a really smart guy out in San Francisco. Kelly Starrett is a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT), and one of the original founders of San Francisco CrossFit. He was recently featured in a series of CrossFit Journal articles on the shoulder, including “The Functional Shoulder”, “Shoulder Assessment” and “Shoulder Impingement”.
Putting heavy stuff overhead isn’t just a physical task. Understanding how your body works is just as important to your training, so spend some time today reading what Kelly has to say. (Don’t have a CFJ subscription yet? You’re missing out on lots of good stuff…)
