Every day presents me new lessons in movement. At the playground yesterday, I was reminded of how much fun “unstructured play” can be! My boys are learning new skills and expanding their abilities daily! Combine this with one of my friends who did the Tough Mudder this weekend, “I made it all the way across the monkey bars! I was thankful for all the pullups we do.” These kind of movements which are not pretty barbell movements, require rotation, agility, getting on all fours, and change of direction. All crucial for us to navigate our world injury-free.
You can say”Aww, cute.” and move on. But, these are powerful reminders to all of us to get more of this movement in our lives!
I had a client in yesterday, who is recovering her movement after 3 back injuries. Her new exercises: Rolling and crawling. Next up, Get-ups.
As healthy, non-injured adults, we need to add in these movements and the climbing my 2-year-olds are doing. The demands of the world around us at present and what may come around the corner tomorrow, demand us to break out.
So this week, hit the park or the playground! Bear crawl 50 yards for time. Max traverse monkey bars in 5 minutes. 5 ladder climb and slide downs in 3 minutes or less. Learn an NFL combine agility drill. Or do some Turkish Getups.
Try something “non-structured” and get back to your inner child.
This weekend, Britt Ringstrom finished 14th the Crossfit North Central Regional. She overcame a 35th placing in the first event to storm back to as high 8th at one point! She made the cut for the last workout and battled at the muscle-ups until the bell sounded.
We, at Maxmead Fitness & Crossfit Minnesota, are all immensely proud of her!
We are looking forward to more handstand pushups and Muscleups for a run at the 2013 Crossfit Games!
