Picture LOVE – Great job you two!
I must confess that I often run into the Wod a few minutes late EVERY time I can attend. And I wish I can say that will never happen again, but I can’t. What I do make sure of is that I am warm before the actual Wod begins. The warm up is so crucial to your performance and overall prevention of injury and body health. When I consider warm up and cool down I consider not just the “right now” but the “20 years from now” body talk.
We have athletes of all shapes, sizes, and ages in our box and that is what makes it the absolute best work out experience every Wod. Our coaches know exactly what the Wod is that day and design the warm up to the specifics of the exercises involved. A good recommendation regarding the warm up is make sure you are on time for it! And if you know your body as well as I know mine then make sure you are really listening to it.
Old injuries, other limitations, age, pregnancy, a health condition may require that you need more time on a specific part of the body to get ready for the Wod. Come early if you must or continue active stretching while you work on the strength segment of the work out posted. You may have a “must do” before all your workouts other than the guided warm up, so make sure you do it.
If you are having a problem look into it now. Ask a coach for help with mobility exercises, go online and watch a Youtube video on the proper technique of the snatch lift, or if necessary go seek the help of a health care provider in the field necessary. But don’t wait. Sometimes dealing with it now can save you tomorrow.
Good luck to everyone in the OPENS!!
