Working on mobility is something that I avoided for a long time. It was always easier to plop down on the floor or couch after a tough workout and call it a day, right? Many years of this mentality coupled with a 9 to 5 desk job has made some things (holding the bottom of a squat, for example) pretty difficult. When I started CrossFit I realized that lack of mobility was a big shortcoming. Luckily, there are a whole bunch of stretches, both static and dynamic, conveniently programmed into our warm-ups that have greatly improved my flexibility. On top of what we do in class, you can always do some "homework" on your own to chip away at your range of motion limitations. Have you noticed an improvement in your mobility since you started working out? Sound off in the comments!
EB knows the key to a good starting position is good mobility!
