Happy Monday Flexi-Animals,
Someone this weekend pointed out that that were really stoked that they could actually squat for 10 minutes after nearly 2 months of working at it. I thought, “Great, you can now have dinner with 2/3 of the world, or go the bathroom in Thailand.” It came out as, “great job”.
As athletes, we are digging ourselves out of holes that we’ve been systematically creating for years. Your body’s tissues are like obedient dogs. You’ve just got to train them. They will get out of your way time and time again if you just give them a little input.
Check out Crossfit.com today for a stimulating discussion on why squatting, shooting the duck, pistols, and pooing are really all the same thing. click here
Today’s MWod is about dealing with your soft tissue sliding/quality.
You need to spend 10 minutes rolling around on the pain ball. I’ve given you some ideas in the video, but feel free to focus on any area that feels matted down.
Remember: If you respect yourself, you need to drink half your bodyweight in water in ounces every day as a baseline.
Being globally dehydrated alone, is enough to significantly impair your performance by letting fuzz grow like gangbusters.
Don’t be that guy. Drink some water, like the cool kids.
