Coaches Farbod and Sam going through some muscle up specifics.
Take a few minutes to watch this inspiring video from The CrossFit Journal about a young girl named Jian, who is defying odds and building strength of body, mind, and spirit thanks to some love, a healthy home, and CrossFit.
Jian Jackson was born healthy. At about 5 months old, she had a high fever at the orphanage where she lived in China. Four days later, she wasn’t moving her legs anymore.
The 8-year-old suffered nerve damage to both legs, and she now uses her hands to move, with her legs and feet hopping or dragging behind. She’s amazingly agile, and her upper-body strength is great enough for legless rope climbs, bar muscle-ups and handstand walks.
Here is her story… this is what CrossFit is all about!
