  • The Best Band Assisted Hip Stretches {Video Tutorial}

    { 13 comments }

    I have another mobility post for you today that is HEAVEN for the hips. Get excited! I like to use resistance bands for stretching because they allow you to passively stretch. That means you can use the band to support your weight and hold the stretch so that you can full relax into what you're [...]

  • Band Assisted Hamstring, Hip and Groin Stretches {Video}

    { 15 comments }

    Mobility work and stretching is an important part of what I do with my clients as a trainer and CrossFit coach. Each workout begins with dynamic stretching during the warm up and end with more static stretching and mobility work.

    So...I have something exciting to share. Over the last few months I have slowly started to increase my running and much to my surprise (and delight!), it has felt 100% amazing and right.

  • Focus On Mobility

    I try really hard not to whine and complain on my blog. Especially when I am fighting a long-term battle with something. That said, I've been in an epic battle with my body over its willingness to run. If you've been reading for a while you have probably noticed how little running and racing I'm [...]

  • The Weekend + Crockpot Salsa Chicken Recipe

    I don't have too much to report from the weekend. It's been very low-key. Saturday morning involved CrossFit. The second I checked the blog and saw this WOD I abandoned plans to practice  yoga and headed over to the new gym instead. This is an ideal WOD for me for an all over good workout. [...]
