Prevent Crossfit injuries by doing these stretches.

If you’ve spent any time doing CrossFit, then you know how high-intensity and high-impact it can be. As a rule, CrossFit is a mix between calisthenics, Olympic weightlifting, and requires a lot of different movements that incorporate weights, barbells, jump rope, and a host of other exercises and aerobics mixed into one brand.
Because the exercises are intense and require a full body of motion, there are injuries that can occur, even if you’re in incredible shape. The majority of injuries caused from working out is linked to a lack of proper stretching and preparing your body for strenuous exercises.
The reality is, stretching before exercise is just as important, if not, more so important than the exercise itself. You must make an effort to include stretching into your workout regime or you risk becoming injured. The two main reasons why CrossFit can cause an injury: the muscles don’t fire as they should or the user has improper joint mechanics.

In laymen’s terms: if you get hurt doing CrossFit (or doing a variety of other exercises), it’s’ due to a lack of free range of motion and your body wasn’t prepared for the repetition and/or weight you threw at it. Let’s take a look at different stretches you should do before taking on CrossFit to prevent injuries and setting back your workout routine.
