************************

Rest is as important to CrossFit as the WOD itself. Though you never ever want to miss out on a WOD, we all have to respect the rest days. Great gains are made when you allow your body sufficient time to recover, and part of that is getting plenty of sleep each night. Darrell White (aka “Bingo”) is a veteran CrossFitter and doctor. Bingo discusses sleep patterns in this episode of CrossFit Radio.

Today’s skill focus lands on pull-ups! Whether you are “stuck” on a certain color band and frustrated you can’t string pull-ups together, or you are trying to perfect the butterfly, pull-ups require practice. Your hands will hurt at first, and you may experience a tear here and there. Stick with it because they do get easier.

Below are a couple of tutorials….ask your coach for questions and advice on how to advance your technique!
