JENN MOBILITY

TOP 4 REASONS YOU SHOULD JOIN JENN’S SATURDAY MORNING MOBILITY CLASS:

1) Mobility Class improves your range of motion and general flexibility

Are your heels coming off the ground in your overhead squat? Is it impossible for you to do a handstand because your shoulders are so tight? How are your pistols? Can you get down there? Practicing basic yoga poses like downward facing dog, warrior two, and pigeon (just to name a few) help reinforce external rotation of the hip and shoulder necessary for many basic movements of CrossFit.

2) Jenn teaches you how to breathe more efficiently

Jenn teaches you how to link movement to breath, so you move through postural transitions using your inhale and exhale. This pattern of breath awareness seamlessly transfers to a long burpee workout where the timing of breath and rhythm is essential to staying on point. Jenn also helps you learn how to breathe deeply into your diaphragm, which directly translates into your ability to produce more power and sustain movements for longer durations.

3) Mobility class gives you time to relax

CrossFit is primarily about moving fast with intensity, but in order to cultivate speed you must also cultivate rest. Relaxation is important for your ability to integrate the information you receive mentally and physically during your workouts and throughout your day. Being able to relax deeply helps you come back with more power, focus, and determination, because you’ve had ample time to recover.

4) Mobility reinforces good positioning

Most of the positions in Jenn’s class support the same concepts of creating torque, finding a braced neutral spinal position, and always working from core to extremity.   These are the same practices used when you’re running, doing a pull up, or performing your heavy deadlift and push press.
