CrossFit Algoa (Port Elizabeth) WOD – Wed, 4 October 2017

Featured Image –  Richard had hand surgery less than a week ago and he is back at the Box getting back into it! With CrossFit we can always scale and substitute where need be to improve your health and fitness. Richard will not be allowed to use his hand for a number of weeks but we have many ways in which we can improve his fitness and help specifically speed up his rehab by working on shoulder girdle and arm strength without specifically using the hand. In picture, he is performing “Frankenstein Squats” as a substitute for Front Squats, so as to not involve the hand but still improve overall hip & knee extension and core strength.
