Here are some mobility suggestions for this week. As always, only do it if it feels right – let your body be your guide. Discomfort is fine, but real pain is not OK. Take what works for you and build your own mobility arsenal.
Okay, this first video is not WOD related, but it is life related! Plus it’s funny how fired up he gets – texting and desks
There is a lot of core on Tuesday, you can mobilize the muscles of your midsection, too.
This week we have a one rep max Clean & Jerk. Here is a set of mobility exercises on Oly prep for catching the bar in a low squat and for good hip movement in the jerk.
There are a few of us who have a tough time getting or maintaining position on a deadlift. The first video addresses mobility to get into a good deadlift position. You’ve see that one before, but it’s a goodie. The next video is about ungluing the tissues in your glute and high hamstring.
Friday is a chipper – you are going to need to mobilize everything! Do the good old 5 way shoulder, some hips, some lower leg/ankle, and some rotational work. Afterwards, don’t forget to recover your jumping calves.
Wow, that’s a lot for this week!
