E3 – Strict Strength Pre-requisites for CrossFit Gymnastics with Pamela Gagnon

On episode 3 of the Performance Plus Programming Podcast, gymnastics expert Pamela Gagnon joins Coach Johnny B to detail the strict strength pre-requisites for gymnastics movements CrossFit in CrossFit.

Here are the topics we covered in this episode:

  • The 2 foundations of gymnastics movements
  • How many reps of strict gymnastics do we need to have before progressing onto kipping?
  • One of the best parts of CrossFit is the feeling that “you can do anything” and kipping gymnastics feed into that. It allows us to do movements like pull-ups often times without really being able to do a pull-up. So what is your message to those people? The people who can do 5 kipping pull-ups, but can’t do one strict?
  • What is Pamela’s favorite Star Wars movie
