Mobility

Mobility Two (No Measure)

1:00 Air Squat Hold to Start. Make note of the quality of your squat here.

1) DorsiFlexion (Ankle Flexibility) – 2:00 Total

With a narrow stance, find the bottom of your squat. Place a bar on the tops of your knees, assisting to close the angle between your shins and the floor. If an empty bar feels light, you can load it lightly to accentuate the ankle stretch.

2) Couch Stretch – 1:00 each leg

3) First Rib Mobilization

With an empty barbell in the rack, place and balance high on the right trap. Use your opposite hand to hold and balance in place. Conduct 5 slow reps of the following to mobilize for shoulder range of motion:

1) Arm circles to the front

2) Arm circles to the back

3) Straight arm raise overhead

4) Pressing motion (imagine doing a dumbbell press)

Loosening up this first rib on the trap will allow for a better overhead position today in our snatches. Switch sides after completing the 5 reps of each motion.
