I see this happen all the time. As people start to filter in a little early for class, everyone has a tendency to just stand there staring at the current class while they work out. I’m not judging. I do it too. It’s a nice time to catch up with your CFM friends. But if you’re coming in early, why not make good use of the time you’ve dedicated to the gym by getting a little extra work in?
Make a habit of getting in some foam-rolling (see below) or mobility work while you wait for class to start. If you have no idea where to begin when it comes to mobility, there are some great posters hanging up by the rowers that can give you some ideas. They’re RIGHT THERE, so it’s super easy to work on something. No excuses.
You can also check out MobilityWod. While some of the site content is only available via a paid subscription, there are still TONS of free videos. They even make it really easy to find something related to a specific area of the body or a particular CrossFit movement with the filters at the top of the page. So, get this: You can peep the CFM programming for that day on the blog, watch a quick mobility video related to a movement you’ll be doing, and spend that extra 5-10 minutes before class becoming even more prepared for the WOD. Great idea, huh?
