“Every human being should be able to perform basic maintenance on themselves. You know what to eat, how to train, and what to do if you have a cut; you should also know how to fix your tight hips, painful knees, and stiff shoulders, and how to make yourself faster and more powerful. It’s too much to mobilize everything, all the time, everyday. Start somewhere. The Mobility Wod should take you four to 10 minutes to complete. Do it everyday. Remember the areas that feel like a Shaman’s Blow.” -KStar
We hit many of these mobility drills in classes but it’s important to be working them everyday, especially your own specific restricted areas. As a product of our environment, we have developed muscular imbalances, poor movement patterns and may even experience pain during everyday movements. Check out Kstar’s blog mobilitywod.com (there’s also a link on the right column of our homepage here), figure out what you need to mobilize and start getting after it! With a little bit of mobility everyday you will be pain free, with faster wod times and bigger strength numbers. Stop driving around with the E-brake on.
