Mobility WOD

Our favorite Crossfit affiliate, physical therapist, and all around guru Kelly Starrett (aka K-Star) has an new blog dedicated entirely to mobility work: http://mobilitywod.blogspot.com/

Kelly has been featured in many excellent videos on the Crossfit Journal, and teaches the Crossfit Mobility and Recovery Seminar. He is an invaluable resource to Crossfit trainers and athletes alike; I feel very strongly that this work is the single most important element to safe and effective training, and the long term succes of Crossfit as a fitness methodology.

Here is a quote form the intro to the blog:
"Every human being should be able to perform basic maintenance on themselves. You know what to eat, how to train, and what to do if you have a cut; you should also know how to fix your tight hips, painful knees, and stiff shoulders, and how to make yourself faster and more powerful. It's too much to mobilize everything, all the time, everyday. Start somewhere. The Mobility Wod should take you four to 10 minutes to complete. Do it everyday. Remember the areas that feel like a Shaman's Blow."

Any one intersted in performing better, putting up better times and numbers, and taking care of those chronic issue of immobility needs to get with the program and be doing this stuff everyday. Do it!
