Functional fitness is all about performing movements in the gym that apply to real life, and for these adaptive athletes, it doesn’t get any more real than this. Kevin Ogar, an adaptive athlete himself, recently posted on Instagram about working with athletes on the staging position of the floor transfer — in other words, practicing getting up off the ground.
This is what functional fitness is all about. Amazing.
Just working the “staging position” of the floor transfer with some of my wheelie good friend at @crossfitwatchtower – Always got to work life skills, and getting up off the ground is a damn important life skill. – @adaptivecrossfit @crossfit @crossfittraining @amyvandyken @beeshaney @jnpines #makongfunctionalhumans #adaptivecrossfit #adaptiveathletes #wheelieimportant #wheeliehardwork
