Mobility and correct biomechanics in the hips is extremely important when it comes to squatting and heavy lifting. This workshop will give you the education and tools to help improve your squats in a loaded position by teaching you simple ways to: improve your posture, increase hip range of motion and help keep your low back healthy.
We’ll teach you how to do a number of hip and low back specific mobility drills to help your squat position and depth with the goal of minimizing low back pain, improving your position and overall performance. The hip joint and muscle groups that act and cross the area will be highlighted as well as proper postural positioning and how to improve that with SMR (self-myofascial release), specific stretches and corrective exercises.
Workshop participants will come home with a simple corrective exercise program that will support faster recovery and enhance their hip and low back mobility in CrossFit workouts and activities of daily living.
