If you’re looking for a great way to warm up your shoulders for CrossFit grab yourself a resistance band like the ones from WOD Nation. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE THESE RESISTANCE BANDS =
We use our shoulders for a lot of the exercises in CrossFit. Think snatch, pull ups, muscle ups, strict press, push ups, and burpies. In order to loosen up for those exercises we like to get our athletes to do some dynamic movements with a resistance exercise band.
This movement is not just for CrossFit athletes, its also really good for those of us who work at a desk for long periods of time. We tend to get hunched over and poor posture will cause us a lot of pain later in life.
No need to use a heavy band, this is not a strength exercise. Use a thinner band like this one from WOD Nation
