Mobility is extremely important for CrossFitters and it is easy to neglect. It is often a limiting factor in many lifts like the overhead squat and getting into correct positions such as a pistol or handstand. A lot of us have jobs that involve sitting for much of the day causing hips, legs and core muscles to become tighter. Poor mobility can increase the risk for injury and make movements harder than they have to be. The better your mobility, the easier a movement becomes.
There are a number of great resources available that are specific to CrossFitters. Check out Kelly Starrett’s Supple Leopard book or www.mobilitywod.com or try a ROMWOD (range of motion workout of the day) available at www.romwod.com.
