So, if you didn’t already know, this CrossFit stuff is designed to get you into really, REALLY good shape. We accomplish this by becoming competent in ten areas of physical fitness: strength, speed, power, agility, coordination, stamina, accuracy, balance, cardio-respiratory endurace, and flexibility. You are considered only as fit as you are competent in all ten of these attributes. Sacrificing one for the benefit of another is a detriment to your overall general physical preparedness (GPP). With that in mind, something that I think we all take for granted is the one attribute that I highlighted above: flexibility. Believe it or not, we actually do quite a bit of focused flexibility/mobility work in the box. It helps make sure we get into the correct positioning before we attempt certain movements; this ensures you are maximally efficient in what you do! However, with only an hour a day to torture you guys, I am limited in what I can accomplish. You have 23 (!) other hours in the day to better yourself on your own. Having said that, I want to introduce you to my new best friend, the VooDoo Band:
- Are your tissues matted down like the fur of a dirty, nasty honey badger?
- Do you whine about your “poor flexibility” from injuries 25 years ago?
- Do you have range of motion restrictions?
- Are you RECOVERING FROM AN INJURY?
- Tight shoulders? Hips? Ankles?
- Sore knees? Elbows? Shins?
Then the Voodoo Band is for you! Pick up one of these suckers for just twenty bucks and start down the path of becoming a supple leopard! There is no excuse for not taking care of your tissues at home. This should be in every athlete’s gym bag! SERIOUSLY, GET ONE…now!
