Check this out 🙂 First, watch Jake do the meerkat in the camera and then watch as I come up and grab the heel detector from Chris on Steve, like Chris was guilty of collusion with Steve, it makes me laugh 🙂


And then, because I really am mean I want to point out that Active Shoulders is one of the 5 unchanging elements of our Foundational 9 Movements in CrossFit. Jamie is doing a suboptimal job of demonstrating this concept while overhead squatting. Perhaps his coach is doing a suboptimal job of informing his athlete about this during the workout…


Active shoulders in this situation (overhead squatting) would mean that Jamie’s neck would all but disappear amidst the vast piles of his muscly traps. He’d shrug “up” thereby supporting the bar better overhead.

Thanks Jamie!!
