Eyor from the 5 a.m. Did you know we offer a 5 a.m. class on Mondays and Thursdays with open gym on Wednesdays?

Review the front rack position. How do I know if I need to work on increasing my mobility in my front rack? How is it supposed to feel? How can I increase my mobility in the front rack? Why does my wrist hurt so bad? etc. . .

If you feel you aren’t lacking in front rack mobility and don’t really need to hear the “lecture”, feel free to mobilize something else or practice a skill.
