CrossFit demands a high range of motion from all of your joints. If you sit most of the day for work, overtime your psoas and hip flexors get jacked up. Then, when you come into the gym you really struggle to squat, deadlift and olympic weightlift. In today's MWod video, KStar explains the mechanism that puts you into this faulty position. Can you guess what his recommended mobility exercise is for jacked-up hip flexors and psoas? Yep, couch stretch. Do it daily. Do it now.
