Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Alex, it is the speed of the contractions and overall work on the shoulder girdle leading into it that caused the problem. Likely also a function of Crossfit and the training itself. RD's are generally performed with way too much internal rotation. Notice this did not happen to any women that we know of. Likely due to the much slower rate of doing them.

Notice also that no one came up lame from doing the same volume of dips related to Muscle. It has been said several times that doing RD's for time like that is not a great idea, hopefully this is the last we see of them and the next couple weeks people are maybe a little more careful and listen to their body, but racing for points.....I doubt it.
