Corporal Ryan C. McGhee, 21, was killed in action on May 13, 2009 by small arms fire during combat in central Iraq. He served with 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment of Fort Benning, GA. This was his fourth deployment, his first to Iraq. Ryan was engaged to Ashleigh Mitchell of Fredericksburg, VA. He is survived by his father Steven McGhee of Myrtle Beach SC, his mother Sherrie Battle McGhee, and his brother Zachary.

Do Deadlifts make your lower back sore?!? Load the Deadlift correctly in order to help!  Many people over extend in order to “keep a flat back”.  If you load properly, you protect the spine in order to prevent injury.

If you’ve never been exposed to Kelly Starrett, he is the master of movement for CrossFit.  I would highly suggest searching his site for mobility in the areas you have movement issues.  www.mobilitywod.com.  The first time you watch, it can seem a little technical, but as you watch more, you begin to learn an incredible amount about anatomy.  Enjoy.
