Mobility Weekend

IMG00311-20100926-1445

Abi and I went to CrossFit’s Mobility Certification this weekend! Lucky us :) Now we get to work on our soft tissue as well as our running technique! Yippee!

Big take home message: Mobility problems dampen your ability to be effective with your movement, thereby costing your more to get the job done. In other words, your tight hips make your air squats cost you more oxygen, your unyielding thoracic flexion costs you a lot more oxygens when you take a bar overhead.

Sound like anyone you know?

    Hmm. So… You’re saying my lack of mobility prevents me from moving properly. You are a genius.

    Can’t wait to be enlightened. Good luck finding “soft” tissue on me.

    Jesse, If I didn’t bust you, who would?

    Ed,
    Your “soft tissue” is actually all grisle. Is that the correct spelling for that? You’re the man Ed!

    Glad to see we are going to be working on flexibility.

    I remember people lauging at me once during a gym meeting when I suggested spending some class time on that a number of months back.

    Nothing like a little validation.
