Can some athletes safely develop kipping ring muscle...

Re: Games Move to Madison

I really like the choice of venue, a great change of pace from L.A. and a very great location at that time of year. A three year term is perfect, then move on to some of the other outstanding venues...

Re: Regarding Wednesday 161012

If done right, with proper warm-up and movement prep and rest between sets and cool down/stretching post-workout, this is a workout in and of itself as suggested by others. Like Mike Vinson said,...

Re: Camille Leblanc-Bazinet is training Parkour to become a more adaptable and competitive athlete.

Re: Camille Leblanc-Bazinet is training Parkour to become a more adaptable and competitive athlete.

The CrossFit Journal archives has a specific category for Parkour. I have seen some videos and it looks practical and fun. A great way to play but learn at the same time. One of the things I...

Re: Box Jumps?
