Also able to focus and take instruction on the foundational CrossFit movements. Introduction to gymnastics-style resistance training with very light external objects, e.g., starting with a PVC pipe and moving toward 5 to 10-pound dumbbells contingent on capacity.
Depending on the little athlete movements are done without weights. To make this clear: We NEVER load preschool-age or new kids during a workout. NEVER.
