Trainer Notes and Points of Performance
After yesterday I know everyone is eager to get back to the CFNA way, Heavy, Hard, and Fast. So here it is, the team chipper from this years, 2012 CrossFit Games. Some things to think about for this workout, especially in the Overhead Squat. The cue or point of performance when performing this movement is to activate the shoulders. However, if not comfortable or familiar with the movement quite yet, it may be tough to determine how to activate the shoulder gurdle to OHS with efficiency. Two things to consider are think of pulling the bar apart from the middle outward, (to the right and left), this should activate the shoulders immediatly. If this doesn't work or feel comfortable, try to imagine reaching with the barbell overhead as high as possible. Things you should not be worrying about are where your armpits should be, turned in or out, or something ridiculous like that.
