WHY CROSSFIT IS GREAT FOR YOUR LIFE “Here are some ways I have consciously turned my CrossFit workout in a “two-fer,” helping both my body AND my life. Even if you don’t do CrossFit, you can easily integrate these ideas into your workout of choice.”–Samantha Sutton, Mind Body Green
ELBOW PAIN: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW Even if there is no significant injury found when you get evaluated, there may be other factors contributing to your elbow issues. For example, up to 70% of elbow pain patients also report pain and dysfunction in their cervical and thoracic spines. Elbow tendinopathies have also been linked to weakness in the middle and lower trapezius, along with scapular dysfunction. So the problem with your elbow could actually be a result of issues with your neck and back! —Brandon Morison, Eat Big, Lift Big
