MOBILITY, STRETCH = FLEXIBILITY + INJURY PREVENTION SEMINAR

MOBILITY, STRETCH = FLEXIBILITY + INJURY PREVENTION SEMINAR

We had an awesome turnout for this practical based seminar, some members even named their tennis balls afterwards (Hannah)  !!! and yes you all needed to attend therefore due to demand we will be running this session with Coach Andy and Asst. Coach JD (CFL’s  very own tag team on flexibility and on injury prevention) on a regular basis …

SUMMARY OF THE SEMINAR :

Flexibility, flexibility, flexibility. As a coach I see flexibility being a limiting factor for many of the athletes here at CFL, myself included. I love when I see people come early to class to roll and stretch in preparation for the workout. That’s awesome. However, too often do I see people book out of here right after the workout. I know after a long intense WOD all you want to do is curl up into a ball and do nothing. I have been there but this is where we run into problems. We need to stretch out all those muscle we just tightened. Lots of pull-ups? Roll out those lats. Heavy Squats? Do the worlds greatest stretch. Tons of deadlifts? Drape yourself over a medball. Even a few minutes post WOD will help prevent those muscles from tightening up and being extremely sore the next day.

Keep checking your emails to see when next CFL will be running this seminar…

PS: if you did not collect a tennis ball collect one from Jennifer when next you are in…
