Have you been doing your homework?
As we mentioned in our recent CrossFit Zone November Newsletter, the one element of fitness that seems to get overlooked the most is flexibility. Flexibility and mobility are very important to your body if you wish to keep your muscles and joints healthy. The good news? Working to keep your body mobile can be achieved in less than 10 mins a day!
For the last while, we have been doing Kelly Starrett’s daily Mobility WODs as our Cash-Out routine in class. Many of you have been dedicatedly sticking around after the WOD and spending your time in various uncomfortable stretching positions. We appreciate all your efforts so far! If you haven’t been able to do stick around for the Mobility WODs, and you know deep down that you need to work on YOUR flexibility, try and make the time to complete the MWODs at home. The videos are posted on our site daily, so you can follow along in your living room if you weren’t able to in class! Trust us: you and your body won’t regret it.
How has everyone been finding their performance since beginning this MWOD regimen? Are you liking it? Hating it? Has anyone noted any differences in their flexibility and mobility? Tell us about it in the comments!
