#tbt One month from today I will be competing in my first competition since my hip surgery last October. My last competition was Regionals 2013. There are a lot of emotions going on, and I consider this to be a good thing. I love competing. The fear, excitement and nervousness all work to my advantage. It’s about having fun and putting on show. I can’t wait to get back to the competitive side of #crossfit.

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

The boys received their first @barkbox! They loved it (but I think we were more excited then they were). Looking forward to our monthly goodies. @okemo #barkbox #dogsofinstagram #schnauzer #schnauzermix #rescue
