Today’s mission is a full frontal assault on your groin. We’ve performed an iteration of this mob on the MWod before, but I’ve been struggling to find that little something extra I’ve felt this mob has always been missing. Oh, and that little thing is called the joint capsule. We have to take a systems approach when we try and improve a position. Failing to account for motor control, sliding surfaces, muscle dynamics, or the joint capsule will always leave you a little short when it comes to optimizing positioning or restoring function. What makes this mob so wonderful, is that it accounts for the passive accessory motion of the hip when you are in the full frog. I’m not going to lie, this corner of your hip is full of ugliness (a wretched hive of scum and villainy). Without complicating matters too much, when we often see the high hamstring weirdness in athletes, it usually has this up stream hip tightness as a feature.
Get to it 2-3 minutes a side. Keep your glutes engaged. Test/Re-test with a deep squat.
ps. This is my favorite mob ever, of all time.
pss. I hate the word crotch
