I guess so. It usually depends on how you, particularly, do the movement.

I can usually feel in my muscles which of them have been the main movers, and which of them I have trouble activating, even, because they mostly just seem to be along for the ride.

I remember Ripptoe saying something about how you should brace your abs before you squat. But none of his athletes seem to do that. They all seem quite lordotic, to me, especially as they get older, but younger ones, too. Having been told to 'brace your lumbar arch hard' they ended up jamming it into hyper-extension rather than using their TVA or whatever to hold their core tight.

I think maybe it is an age thing, too, as the ligaments lose some of their elastic recoil as you get a bit older so you need to rely on muscular development to hold your spine in a good alignment.

Enjoy your crossfit! I hope you get some helpful tips.

I actually am missing the gym, rather, much to my surprise. I miss group fitness classes. Just turn my mind off and follow along...
