Mobilize yourselves!
 
You know that annoying crap that hurts which we religiously do at the beginning of every session?  Well it serves a pretty huge purpose.  Mobility (aka flexibility in movement) will inhibit EVERY component of your fitness.  For example, you will be limited in your strength, speed, power, coordination, accuracy, balance, stamina, agility, and endurance gains if you cannot move through full range of motion.  Its like flossing your teeth…its gotta be done daily.
 
So take a few minutes each day or even week and check out the MOBILITY WOD from King Supple Leopard, Dr. Kelly Starret.  http://www.mobilitywod.com/
 
From the man himself:

All human beings should be able to perform basic maintenance on themselves

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.
