Training the front lever develops both tremendous strength in the core and pulling power in the lats. The arms must remain straight. Here, Sue holds for time in the tucked front lever.
The days are getting longer, and it’s finally time to go outside and run. We kicked the season off with a little run thru the CrossFit classic, “Helen”. Awesome effort, everyone! More photos in the gallery….
Rochelle and I are stuck in the Phoenix airport, waiting to return to the Portland rain. We had a great trip, plenty of sun, hiking, and good food. We also got in several great workouts, thanks to Lincoln at CrossFit Sedona and Lisa at CrossFit Flagstaff. We look forward to seeing everyone this week!
If you have developed some proficiency with the regular frog stands, give the one legged version a try. This will increase your core activation, as well as require some additional shoulder and wrist strength. Work both sides evenly.
