Mobility Tips for CrossFit Athletes


Mobility for CrossFit Athletes

Glendale Physical Therapist

Our team at Impact Physical Therapy had the privilege of hosting a mobility clinic at CrossFit North Valley this past weekend. Our team of experts were able to not only discuss mobility challenges within CrossFit Athletes, but also walk them through hands on tests, motions, and exercises to help locate any aches and pains they were having, and finally give them the tips and tricks to help overcome these obstacles to help them train more efficiently, and pain free.


If you are a CrossFit Athlete, here are a few tips for you to help increase your mobility before a WOD (or workout of the day)

1. Lay over the wall ball and stretch to help improve thoracic mobility

2. Use a mobility band (or Pull-up Band) to improve hip and ankle motion

3. Use a PVC pipe to stretch out your arms, and your shoulders

4. Use your body, bodyweight exercises, slowly, can help build a good stretch before a workout. (Generic Viagra)
