Read below for more info from Bruce!:

Hi CrossFit Southie! My name is Bruce Stockton, I’m a competitive weightlifter and 3rd year physical therapy student at Boston University. In my final year I’ve been working on a practicum presentation looking at the most optimal ways to breathe and brace in the sports of weightlifting and CrossFit.

What can you expect to learn? We’ll cover how your breathing style can improve or hinder your performance, benefits of certain breathing techniques over others, when, how, and why use a lifting belt, simple ways to build this into your warmup or recovery work, and of course how it can help you move fast and lift heavy! I’ll do a little presenting, then we’ll get up and move and do a mini workshop, then finish off with some Q and A.

This presentation is for YOU, the athlete! As a weightlifter I like heavy things, so this isn’t going to be your typical PT presentation. Hope to see you there!
