Today's Mobility Monday video is with Dr. Kelley Starrett of Mobility WOD. He has partnered with the Whole Life Challenge to provide weekly mobility homework. This week's homework is very beneficial for improving our position in the thruster.
Many of us have bad posture and we honestly don't spend enough time working to fix what our bad habits create. You do 5-10 mins of mobility with us when you attend class and that's about 15-20 mins per week of working on the issues in your tissues.
It takes a daily 10 min practice to affect real change in your mobility. Isn't that great news? Yes! You can improve your flexibility and mobility with daily training. Today in class you will spend some time working to improve your thoracic mobility. Enjoy!

Today's workout is a heavy day. The push press is a great lift for developing upper body strength and explosive hip drive. The faster you can drive out of your dip, the more weight you can move.
One component of our Whole Life Challenge workout challenge is a 3 rep max thruster. The push press is one half of the thruster and for most of us, we are limited in the thruster by our pressing strength. Today we are working to increase our pressing strength to help us increase our 3 rep max thruster weight. Good luck!
