[vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/eERwCQHZqfA” video_title=”” css=”.vc_custom_1512450798179{border: 1px solid #dddddd !important;}”][us_separator type=”invisible”][vc_column_text]Following on from our bodyweight pushing movement theme, CrossFit Seminar staff member, James Hobart, demonstrates the Bar Dip. The bar dip is a great way to strengthen shoulders, chest and triceps and is often considered superior to the pushup as it involves moving your entire body weight. It is also a great precursor to dips on the rings, which we shall look at next week.[/vc_column_text][us_separator type=”invisible”][vc_column_text]
