Many of you have been to Dr. Brad Cole in his office setting, and now we are lucky enough to have him share his knowledge once again at CrossFit Mechanix. Listed below is what to expect along with links to learn more about Dr. Cole and his credentials.
We will work through the 7-step movement prep. It is a self analysis to prioritize the self-directed part of a warm up.
The 7-step movement prep answers questions like: "How much stretching is enough?" "What should I focus on for a warm-up?" and "Am I moving well?"
Specifically, the purpose of the 7 Step Movement Prep is to provide a quick, accurate, self-administered movement audit so athletes can prioritize their warm-up. There are thousands of mobilization techniques and activation drills. Athletes don’t need more drills, but rather need to know on which areas they should focus prior to training. Athletes don’t need to hammer on the same mobility drills indefinitely, but rather need standards to ensure that they have achieved the requisite mobility and stability prior to training. This series of 7 movement audits uncovers asymmetries and restrictions across the entire movement chain from head to foot. When you find a problem, you can then focus on those problems in your warm-up, then recheck the movement prior to starting high demand athletic activity.
This is a Free event and we welcome athletes from other gyms to join us.
