It's Mobility Monday! Today we are deadlifting, and even though it's a relatively light weight, we want to get our back and core ready to lift. Oftentimes, it's the lighter weights were folks get less focused on good mechanics and more focused on moving quickly that things go south. We want to keep the mechanics strong for the deadlifts today. You'll need your core and back muscles to help keep you in a good position for the pushups and for safe box jump landings.
You'll recognize several of the mobility movements in today's video. We regularly do cat-cow and banded good mornings for our deadlift prep. Enjoy!

15 Box Jumps 24/20 in
Today's workout is a classic CrossFit triplet. We are working core stability and hip strength and explosiveness. The rep scheme is low so you know you can do the movements unbroken or with a solid pace. It's a long workout, so don't go out to fast. Aim to complete each round in the same amount of time. Pacing is such an important strategy, and the "Go hard until I die" strategy will not serve you in this workout.
