WOD– Strength and Mini-Metcon
The workout for today will be a strength session, followed by a mini-metcon. Basically this means we do some lifting, then a short metabolic workout following. We’ll start with the basic lifts and go from there. Click on the links to see demo and explanations of the movements.
Strength- Weighted Pull Ups 5 x 3
For a full set of 5 to count, you cannot come off the bar (fee do not touch ground). Use a dumbell between the knees, thighs, or ankles. Or, use a weight vest. Start light, go heavier if possible. Can be done strict, or with a kip.

For the stretching, we’ll continue using “MobilityWOD“. It’s a free blog by Kelly Starrett, DPT. Each day different stretching/mobility movements are covered. Items generally used are foam rollers, a lacrosse ball (or tennis ball), and some stretching bands.
Day 1 Stretching/Mobility- “Is your bed making you slow and weak?”
How does your bed affect your resting/recovery/adaptation position? Is your bed making you worse? Do you spend a full third of your life in a crappy position?
Day 2 Stretching/Mobility- “Improving Shoulder Position for the Press and Rack”
Today’s mission is about improving external rotation in arm flexion, or getting the shoulder into a better, more congruent set up.
Article: “The 10 Best Mobility Exercises for Runners” -Competitor Magazine
One year ago Kelly Starrett, DPT and co-owner of CrossFit San Francisco, set out to record a year’s worth of near daily video blogs. Starrett (probably the strongest, most supple finisher ever in the history of the Quad Dipsea trail ultra), in developing an immeasurable bank vault of mobility exercises valuable for runners, not only provides the how but the why. A runner committing 10 minutes a day to Starrett’s “Mobility Workout of the Day,” or MWOD, is destined to bound away with some impressive understanding of mobility, tissue health and how it all ties into unleashing great performance.
