What is CMT?
Charcot Marie Tooth Disease is a disease of the peripheral nerves that control muscles. It is the most commonly inherited peripheral neuropathy, affecting about 1 in 2,500 people of all races, ethnic groups, and genders. CMT is slowly progressive, causing loss of normal function and/or sensation in the lower legs, feet, arms, and hands. CMT is currently incurable.
28 Minute Partner AMRAP
Buy in: 90 – 4 count flutter kicks each
7 seated wall balls
9 kettle bell swings or Bulgarian Goat Bag swings
While one person is performing rounds of 6,7,9 the other partner holds a supine plank hold. If one partner stops holding the plank, the other partner must stop the movements. Partners can switch off as often as they like to complete as many rounds as possible in 28 minutes.
Why this WOD?
This workout is designed to illustrate that everyone is capable. All of these movements can be scaled.
28 minutes = 1 minute for every 100,000 people affected by CMT worldwide.
Partner workout = no one should have to face CMT alone!
4 movements = 4 main types of CMT
Reps for each movement are the subtypes of CMT types 1, 2, & 4.
90 flutter kicks = 90 different genes causing CMT.
