I love K-Starr and what he’s done to raise the education level of CrossFitters. Position, position, position! If we have issues getting into position, drilling a CrossFit movement alone won’t get the job done; we need MOBILITY! Last year I spent 20-30 minutes five days a week mobilizing my issues. While I felt like it was good WOD prep it never made a big impact on the structural changes I needed. I still use K-Starr’s mobility movements as part of my warm-up but this year I added Yoga to help strengthen stabilizers and increase my range of motion. It has been wonderful and find it to be worthwhile practice. I certainly don’t fit the Yogi mold and won’t be featured on the cover of a Yoga magazine but I feel as young as my joints are healthy OR as old as my joints are cranky!! So Yoga it is; two-three times a week.
A. Flow Yoga, Hot x 1 hour and 15 minutes
2 hours later
B. Aerobic recovery. :30 erg at 80% (1:43 pace), :30 rest on erg x 8 intervals, rest 3:00, repeat two more times. So 8, 3, 8, 3, 8
I’m coaching a camp full of adaptive athletes/Vets with team RWB this weekend. Should be AWESOME!! I’ll sneak some training in during lunch break on Friday and Saturday.
