By setting your breath (and therefore your core) your movement becomes more efficient, utilizing the proper muscular engines for each movement. Above Brian C sends his hips and knees with a strong, stiff midline backwards to engage the majority of the hamstrings and glutes, and less in the low back.

Have We Diluted the Kool Aid? – Fit Move Go
I’ve been doing CrossFit since 2006 and I knew about it maybe a year earlier (saw someone in my big box gym rocking an OG CrossFit sweatshirt). It was very different back then: gym equipment were either hand-me-downs, craigslist finds, and/or DIY projects. People wore 100% cotton t-shirts and wore baggy basketball shorts or ranger panties, which eventually became lululemon and board shorts.
Workouts were a different beast. Scaling and modifications were mentioned, but everyone wanted to do the sexy stuff like Greg and Annie were doing on main site. Rx. Rx. Rx. Now gyms know a little better- we have to cater to more than one crowd- that’s why FCF has CrossFit class, Barbell Club, HellaFit, Kettlebell S&C, Mobility, Yoga, Level 2, Skills, and more.
