Hip and Ankle mobility.
- Perform the ankle mobility by tying a band around a squat rack, putting it around your ankle, move banded foot out from rack for tension on the band. Squat down and move knee around, taking that banded ankle through a dynamic range of motion.
To illustrate, video courtesy of Mobility WOD. Just watch the first 2 and a half minutes for the band stretchUnlike what Kelly does on the video, we can use the rig to anchor down our bands. No broken doors, right? Either pair up to hold the foot down, or do it on your own. Do two minutes each side. Make sure you do a squat test before, after one leg, and after two legs.
This will lead right to our skill work of……
