You know that moment when the coach is explaining the WOD and they say 25 feet crawl forward and back?  I know what you are thinking…crawling…seriously??  What does this have to do with CrossFit?

We all secretly curse Coach Warren under our breath and then get on with the workout.  Well as it turns out, he actually does know what he is talking about!  The crawl is a way of synching your body and helping you move better.  Here is an article to help explain more about the crawl and the benefits is has in both your workout and everyday life.  Take a minute to read through it, you won’t be sorry!
