No weightlifting classes this week. Taking the rest week after maxing and we’ll start a new cycle next week. See you there!

Mobility ≠ Stretching. This is the name of an article from Box Pro Magazine about Kelly Starrett and his Mobility WOD program. In the article he talks about optimizing performance through good movement, and he says that good movement needs to be the default pattern. That way, when you get tired your body will go to what is most efficient – proper technique. If you don’t practice perfect technique, you will suffer and you may end up injured down the road.

As coaches, it’s our job to teach you proper movement and positions, but as an athlete you have to take responsibility to work on it. You have to take responsibility to “fix” your issues. Unfortunately, no one can do that for you.

“The Coach is not the only person responsible for your mechanics, and this is a crucial aspect. You can’t show up and just be like ‘Coach me. Fix me.’ You have to be responsible for wanting to fix yourself,” Starrett said.
