Couch Stretch, Tight Hips & Don’t Go In the Pain Cave | Mobility Project Episode 2


Open up the front of your hips. Try and get 4 min each side.
Test: Air Squat
Mobilize 8 min
Retest: Air Squat
Note changes in quality of your squat/depth/etc.
Enjoy the feeling of undoing years of sitting in a chair.

And for crying out loud. Don’t go into the pain cave. I can’t stress this enough. Your Totem Animal won’t be in there to help you.

You’ll be on your own.
The Pain Cave is for cowards.
Pain is your companion, don’t go hide from it.

It’s ok to do a mobility wod every day.

Homework: Make someone in your office or family do it too. Post non-pain cave based experiences to comments.
