In this weeks Strength Chat episode, I had the pleasure to chat with gymnastic and bodyweight training specialist, Pamela Gagnon. With a background of being a Division I gymnast and then transitioning over to compete in CrossFit, it was great to hear Pamelas thoughts and experiences on training for the two different sports. We chatted about the how both sports can benefit from one another, her biggest challenges in making the transition from gymnastics to CrossFit, as well as her guidelines and coaching template for people wanting to improve their bodyweight or gymnastic training.
