Although we try to put mobility in each and every class we teach, a few minutes a day really isn’t enough to achieve substantial mobility results, it’s just enough to get you loosened up for the movements required that day. For those of you with major mobility deficiencies and those of you looking to unlock your true potential, this is a great time to kick back, work on your trouble areas and enjoy some friendly time with your fellow Chalkers.

MCTs: What is the hype over Medium Chain Triglycerides?

Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) have been promoted to bodybuilders as a supplement to promote weight loss, and to endurance athletes as a supplement to enhance performance capacity. But is there scientific evidence to back either claim?

Your Fitness Program at ChalkBox

CrossFit will transform the way you think about fitness. It will do this by exposing you to functional movements. Functional movements in the gym are those that replicate movement in real life or sport. For example, nearly every day in life, you bend over and pick something up.

Does your shoulder hurt?

Does your shoulder hurt?

Does your shoulder pinch while doing push ups or in an overhead press? 

If the answer is yes, it’s more than likely down to your inability to control your shoulder blade. If your shoulder blade shrugs up and forward and you then repeat this for hundreds and thousands of reps (at home, in the gym or at work or driving) then the shoulder may become impinged due to the shoulder being in a constant state of internal rotation.
