WATCH:

For those with weaker (or injury-prone) ankles TOE WALKING may be an accessory you add to your personal practice. Great for warmups before a jog or exercise this can be done anywhere.

Start with your knees completely locked, your butt tucked under your body, and your abs engaged. Start with a single calf raise to your absolute end-range then take very small steps forward, sideways, and backwards, moving from the hips.

Generally we would do this in lengths of 30 to 60 feet once or twice to build the strength and stamina of the muscles and joints of the lower leg, ankle, and feet.

First off, great job to everyone who came by and threw down on Saturday- so much effort in doing wall walks in a fashion we don’t practice: off the ground and for higher volumes! Thanks for not shattering your kneecaps!

Second of all, we heard you and want to make it a little more clear: we’re using the CrossFit Games Open as a testing opportunity, along with specific workouts during the week. Then our programming beginning in April will be designed to improve most aspects of what we tested.

Third, we have opened up two spots on Mondays during GT Hours for those who need to makeup or redo their work. RSVP!

Also:

So if you’re officially registered to play worldwide, make sure you submit your scores as soon as possible each time you do the weekly event!
