Annie gets fierce!
Today's Mobility Monday video will help you get your shoulders all juicy and ready to do some work! Shoulder pain and discomfort is a common complaint of new and experienced CrossFitters. We spend much of our day with our hands low and arms below our shoulders. Then at the gym we raise our arms to pull, push and throw. This overhead movement can take its toll.
Overhead movement is functional movement. You need to be able to raise your arms to reach something above your head, load things on top of your car, prevent something from falling on top of you and many other scenarios.
If you are uncomfortable raising your arms over your head, you need to work on your mobility. Your shoulder has a very wide range of motion and we want to regain the functionality of it by restoring your natural range of motion. Spend some time today doing the mobility exercises in the MWod video. You might be surprised at how much you can increase your range of motion. Good luck!
