We crushed FEB-ROW-ARY, rowing 68,223 meters PAST our goal! That’s how CFE rolls….or rows! Great job everyone, it was an awesome team effort! This month we have “Mobility March”. Since we’ll be pushing ourselves to the max this month with our competition wods, it is going to be important to take care of nagging issues before they become more serious. Each person is encouraged to write down 2-5 mobility/rehab/prehab exercises that they want to commit to doing before or after each workout for the month of March. Pick exercises that will benefit you and your issues. Here are a few ideas:
Back: GHD Back Extensions/Hip extensions, Reverse Hyper, supermans, banded goodmornings, foam roller
Shoulders: X-Symmetry, dumbbell shoulder exercises, lacrosse ball/wall massage, band stretches
Knees: mini bands series, squat therapy, IT band foam roller
Feet: lacrosse ball massage, calf and ankle stretches
Core: GHD sit ups, Russian twists, weighted sit ups, V-ups
This would also be a good time to work on muscle activation if you have a particular muscle that is not firing. It is important to take care of our bodies, we beat them up pretty good! Ask a coach if you need help with ideas that would be good for you.
