Day 11: Shoulder or Wrist Pain?
We use our wrists, elbows, and shoulders quite a lot in CrossFit as we regularly load and hang off of said joints. You put in a lot of work through repetition- the big question is do you even that out with stretching and other forms of mobility?
CrossFit WOD for Thursday 2/12/2020
5k row/ski/run for time, then immediately establish a 1RM thruster in 10:00
Share time and heaviest successful load to whiteboard. Post-workout will include some back and bicep work to restore the integrity of muscle after the mono structural and lifting efforts.

Definitely been experiencing a lot of wrist and elbow pain.
Is the solution, then, to give more attention to mobility and stretching related to these joints?
