Two WODs in a Day

It’s called the WOD, workout of the day.  Workout, singular, not plural.  One workout, 15 minute AMRAP, 5 rounds for time, box jumps, pull-ups, front squats, etc.  I got it, good to go.  Now you want me to do a second workout?  Short answer, yes!

Now relax, kids.  I’m not saying splash some water on your face and then totally mash yourself by doing Fran back to back, I’m telling you to hit up the Mobility WOD.  The Mobility WOD might not leave you gasping for air, but it can certainly hurt in a good way.

The Mobility WOD from Kelly Starrett is more than stretching.  In fact, stretching is for losers.  This is about movement, mobility, and human mechanics.  Super tight hips hurting your squat, this will help.  Have a terrible overhead position, then you need this.  Shin splits make you cry after a box jump workout, then grab a lacrosse ball and watch some videos here.

Doing the Mobility Workout of the Day is like taking your car in for an oil change right at 3000 miles.  It’s all about proper maintenance so you can perform better in life.
