Here is another fabulous post by Kelly Starrett:
Open up the front of your hips. Try and get 4 min each side.
Test: Air Squat
Mobilize 8 min
Retest: Air Squat
Note changes in quality of your squat/depth/etc.
Enjoy the feeling of undoing years of sitting in a chair.
And for crying out loud. Don’t go into the pain cave. I can’t stress this enough. Your Totem Animal won’t be in there to help you. You’ll be on your own. The Pain Cave is for cowards.
Pain is your companion, don’t go hide from it.
It’s ok to do a mobility wod every day.
Homework: Make someone in your office of family do it too.
Post non-pain cave based experiences to comments.
The MobilityWod Program
This blog is intended as a jump off point for athletes to systematically begin to address their nasty tissues and grody joint mobility. Use at your own risk and stop if you think it’s gonna hurt you, your spine is going to come out your throat, or your face goes numb. But, understand that you should be responsible for your own business. Don’t wait until you need a new knee. Pony up.
