Squat Range of Motion

What and Why Full Range of Motion? If you’ve been with us long enough (at least one day) you’ve likely heard your coach tell you that the standard depth for any squat variation is that the crease of the hip (A) must travel below the top of the knee (B). Simple enough to understand, but…

CrossFit Final Call is now offering a group program specifically designed with older athletes in mind.
