Olympus Movement & Mobility Class Starting Tomorrow!

Are you looking to become a Crossfitter with better movement to improve strength, power, and speed? Are you looking for ways to recover quicker to prepare for your next WOD; or relieve chronic pain from an injury AND help prevent future injuries? Your answer should be YES to all of the above- you NEED to attend MOBILITY class at Crossfit Reality. As a Crossfit athlete is it extremely important to learn how to take care of your body to prepare for high level training session AND to move better to create optimal results.

MOBILITY class will teach you  how to use certain tools (i.e. foam roller, lacrosse ball, strength band, voodoo band, etc.) to aid in RECOVERY as well as improve the movement of your body so that you can increase your athletic potential, decrease injury and feel better.

The mobility class is designed to help you improve your squat, overhead shoulder mobility as well as core stability, to name a few; by discovering new areas to mobilize, AND to make sure you’re doing it correctly!

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO MOBILIZE?! No right or wrong answer here, BUT here’s a few things to think about:

-When in doubt, come to mobility class after you WOD. This is a great time because you are all warmed-up and will be able to get deeper into the stretches

– It’s ALWAYS good to come to mobility on your days off!

 

“You need to understand how to move correctly in every situation. You also need the tools to deal with stiff and adaptively short tissues that restrict range-of-motion. When we restore position, we restore function. When we improve position, we improve function.” Excerpt From: Kelly Starrett and Glen Cordoza. Becoming a Supple Leopard.
