CrossFit Open 16.5 Warm Up and Mobility
Reunited and it feels (not) so good. This is a repeat of 14.5, just incase the memories still haunt you. Filled with total body movement requiring adequate hip and shoulder mobility, these warm up drills will better help you prepare and stay healthy. Work from the ground up, focusing on hip mobility. Both rising from the burpee and thruster will challenge your hips. As you fatigue, shoulder stress may increase and trunk stability may fail, leading to poor performance. Pace yourself and mentally prepare for the goodness that is 16.5. And most importantly, listen to your body, know your limits and have fun! Good luck from #SportsPerformancePT !
