Great Lessons 

Below is a link to an excellent article that highlights five movement and mobility tips for CrossFitters.

The five tips…

#1 gives you some thoracic work to do in order to maintain your shoulders. Demo the exercises while you are watching the videos.

#2 relates to squatting, foot position and finding your appropriate bottom position.

#3 is good advice: if you’ve got reoccurring issues that pop up when doing specific barbell movements, it’s OK (and advisable) to lay off those movements until the issues are corrected. We are always giving people alternate movements to perform in a WOD as well as corrective exercises for any “junk” they have. It’s not the end of the world if you have to modify for awhile. It can stave off big problems in your future.

#4 discusses ankles in the squat

#5 touches on ego and doing things correctly vs getting through them with heavy weight.

This is a must read/watch!
