We are now in our third and final week of workouts from gymnastics coach Roger Harrell. Roger is the Co-Founder of The Cave/CrossFit Marin and a former competitive gymnast. Roger is an expert at teaching non-gymnasts, so if you’re thinking of making progress on your gymnastics skills these are perfect workouts for you.
To learn more about Roger, read our feature interview:
Warm up activities are to be performed at a level that is appropriate for you. No warm up movements should be strenuous. Be sure to scale appropriately. 5-15 minutes of stretching following each session is expected.
