Having trouble reaching full depth in your squat? Maybe you can’t create the right archetype with the arms for a stable front rack, or maybe you don’t have full range of motion overhead? These are some of the issues that quickly become apparent when starting any CrossFit regimen. Sometimes these issues just pose performance deficiencies and other times they are injuries waiting to happen. Either way there are exercises you can do to help improve your lacking mobility.
Every Thursday we offer a free mobility class at 6:30PM that focuses on different movement patterns most common in CrossFit.
