Handstands and Hanging Shrugs - Yoga & Functional Movement for Shoulders and Wrists

  • Green Mountain CrossFit North

2nd of 3 Workshops Series: Yoga and Functional Movement for Crossfitters, Weightlifters, and other Athletes with Margaret Pitkin

In each of the 3 workshops in this series we will explore anatomy, address existing and potential injuries, build strength in vulnerable areas, and enhance flexibility for ease of movement and improved mechanics. Expect stretching, strengthening, movement education, and some self massage with balls or rollers in each class. 

Handstands and Hanging Shrugs: Yoga and Functional Movement for the Shoulders and Wrists 

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body, and also one of the most commonly injured. Overhead positions of the arm, such as those needed for performing handstands, pull ups, or weightlifting above the shoulders require tremendous strength not only in the large muscles of the shoulder and upper back, but also in the small but indispensable muscles of the rotator cuff. Come explore ways to improve shoulder movement, reduce shoulder pain, and prevent injury in all kinds of overhead arm movements through improved rotator cuff strength and shoulder flexibility. Shoulder injury? Come on down! Happy shoulders? Keep them that way!

Cost is $30 for one class, or $80 for all 3 in the series.  GMCF members take additional 10% off

Squat Therapy: Yoga and Functional Movement for the Hips Knees and Ankles 

So many weightlifting movements and movements we perform in our daily lives (like stair climbing) include the squat. Proficiency in pain-free squatting involves foot and ankle mobility and sufficient range of motion at the knee and hip joints coupled with good knee and hip alignment. We will explore all of these concepts and more in this 2 hour class. Come fix that broken squat, or polish up the one you’ve got, we can all use a little squat therapy!

Registration: Click Here

Cost: $120 per team

This is your chance to grab a partner of the opposite gender (or the same gender for the fun division) and do a day's worth of partner WODs together! This will be our first competition using the two person team format and we're looking forward to growing this to be a big yearly event.

There will be two categories: Open and Scaled

The Open division is designed for intermediate to advanced level athletes who would consider themselves good candidates to compete in the CrossFit Open. If you have successfully completed a full season of Open workouts in the Rx division you will be at home in this category. There will be a minimum of 3 workouts  that have no advanced gymnastics (HSPUs, Muscle-ups, Pistols) or prohibitive weights. Top teams will get a final workout where anything goes as far as movements and weights.

The Scaled division is for intermediate athletes who would feel at home doing the scaled version of the CrossFit Open. These are athletes who have good fundamental CrossFit skills but may not have more difficult movements like double-unders, squat snatches or unscaled pull-ups. All Scaled teams will get a minimum of 3 workouts for the day.

The unofficial "Fun" division is a subset of the Scaled category and will be accessible for all CrossFit athletes by making allowances for various levels of scaling.  This is perfect for beginner CrossFitters or Boot Campers who want to get their feet wet with a competition without having to worry about performing to specific movement standards.

Please note that partners are NOT required to be romantically involved, and there will be no kissing or hugging as required movements. Partners of the same gender are welcome to compete in the Fun division.
