Skill: Skin The Cat.
Benefits: Shoulder Strength, Shoulder Stability, Shoulder Flexibility, Core Strength, Development of Hip Pull strength and power (hip power behind kipping/butterfly pullups, muscleups, toes to bar, and Olympic lifts).
The Movement: start basic and progress as you develop the strength and stability to perform safely. The videos show different ways that you can modify. Always start and finish with feet on the ground and make sure you can touch the ground on the back end until you are ready to progress.
Tomorrow on my blog I will have a more detailed video of the movement and why this exercise is so important… www.jessicanestrada.tumblr.com #crossfit #skills #bodyweight #gymnastics #strength
