Alec and Deb's Shoulder Seminar

This weekend's course will include some basic anatomy.  Why not get a head start on the educational process and learn the three bones which comprise the shoulder girdle? This picture identifies the Clavicle, Scapula and Humerus of the right arm.  Here you can see how those same three bones sit on the rib cage.

Try to locate these three bones on yourself:

Your Clavicles are the horizontal bones that sit just below your neck and reach across your chest
Your Humerus is simply your upper arm bone
Your Scapulas are the two "pizza" shaped bones on your upper back

This Seminar is SOLD OUT
Looking forward to seeing everyone that signed up this Sunday, August 2nd from 1:30-4:00pm

Our "SQUAT OFF" with CrossFit NorCal will be held this Saturday!  Athletes will have three attempts to find a 1 rep max on the Barbell Squat.  Both high bar and low bar squats are legal, the athlete must simply break parallel and return to full extension with the bar on their back. We'll be talking about 1RMs and practicing the movement all this week.
