Tumbling down….

Scott, aallllmost out of that sticking point!!

Tumbling finds its way into our warmups from time to time.

Do you hate when that happens, or can't wait to embrace your inner Nadia Comaneci?

If you think about it though, isn't it kind of weird that in CrossFit we get really hung up on trying to perform a bodyweight snatch, or do a muscle up, arguably not 100% natural movements (although the separate components that make them up are...), yet being able to fall to the ground without harm gives us pause?

I can see it when we practice Turkish Get Ups, Candlesticks, and of course, the aforementioned tumbling.  A hesitation, an awkwardness.

Given that falls are a major issue for humans as they age, it might just be something worth practicing more often.

A ninja dive-rolling granny?   I'd pay to see that, but I'd prefer that it was the norm one day.
