Sore Wrist Fixes
Hey Vic City,
We do a lot of work holding weight in the front rack position (bar supported on shoulders in front of the neck). If you're new to CrossFit and therefore new to this position, it can be a bit painful on the wrists and forearms as your body adjusts to this new stress.
In the video below, coach Cam reviews ways to modify movements that involve the front rack position while working to improve your mobility so that the front rack becomes comfortable and stable. Thes modifications are also great if you are coming back from an injury or are looking for another way to create variety in your workouts.
