Welcome to Pilchuck CrossFit

Welcome to Pilchuck CrossFit! CrossFit is a core strength & conditioning program that delivers a fitness that is by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Elements of track & field, gymnastics, weightlifting, and strongman are combined in short intense daily workouts to maximize results for any individual. CrossFit teaches functional movement patterns, or, movements that you find in real life -pushing, pulling, squatting, jumping, throwing, carrying, and sprinting.

Where Is My Psoas and Why Is It Important?

Tuesday, 16 December 2014 12:51

This morning during my daily internet musing for good, useful stuff I came across an article in perfect time. I have been having some back issues, and instead of hunting for the issue I resorted to Aleve. I remembered an athlete of mine had low back issue and we solved working on the glutes and the psoas. I decided to do some work on the areas and after about 2 minutes I went ahead and cancelled my chiropractic appointment. 

For those of you who don't know what your psoas is and why it's important, check out 'Where is my Psoas and why is it important?'

A. 3 working sets of:

Back Squat x 5 Reps

**5# Heavier than last week.**

Rest 2-3 minutes between working sets.


3 Push Press (95/65)

3 KB Swings (70/53

3 Wall Ball (20/14)

6 Push Press (95/65)

6 KB Swings (70/53)
