    The Dash – 14:16 Rx

    tweeky lower back this morning. warm-up and mobility got me through it. I have learned a great deal about injuries through CorssFit, how to avoid,and CFNE mobility is key. a while ago, i would have stayed home. however, warmup on rower, roll out on PVC, lacrosse ball, and Kevin’s warm up and mobility got me through it.

    • Sean Rockett

      I thought it was my encouraging words that got you through it

      • rich t

        sorry, thought that was a given and everyone’s understanding that Doc Rock is da man. aura based telekintec proximity healing. give me some.

    • Colleen (OC)

      That’s how I have to start most of my days. Wihtout mobility and stretching, I wouldn’t be able to get out of bed!

      • I hope you have a big bed to do all of that stretching before you even leave it.

        : )

      • Colleen (OC)

        I just kick my husband. He doesn’t mind!

    The Dash: 10:03. I was Rx on the box jumps, burpees and chest to bars. I didn’t do KB swings- just did sit ups instead because my back was giving me fits. I used the 26# KB for the snatches. Initially thought I would do 18#, but glad I went heavier on that.
