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. Many years of this mentality coupled with a 9 to 5 desk job has made some things (read: holding the bottom of a squat) very difficult. When I started CrossFit I realized that lack of mobility was my biggest shortcoming. Luckily, there are a whole host of stretches, both static and dynamic, conveniently programmed into our warm-ups that have greatly improved my flexibility. Have you noticed an improvement in your mobility since you started working out? Sound off in the comments!
Also, don't forget to swing by our regularly scheduled mobility workshops (held on the second Monday of every month) to get your bendy on and work on increasing your range of motion!
