140404 Mobility WOD

Anterior Hip today. Demo video:

I’d like you to perform both mob’s here, but if time is a factor stick to the first mob. Key points:

  • torso upright
  • face the position of tension on the band, so that the band is pulling your but and hip forward (not pulling you to the left or right)
  • the farther you step away from the pull up rig the harder this mob gets (ergo, more tension on the band)
  • make sure the band is really high up on your leg (it should be all up in your business)
  • this mob is a mirror image to the mob we do during team WODs (the lunge stretch)

Opening up the anterior hip is paramount in achieving that bottom position of the squat (any  type)  as well as proper foot placement in the split jerk.
