Today is a short story about the dreaded “syndrome”. No, not that one. That one eats the brain is tertiary in nature. (bonus points for spirochet humor…).
No, I’m talking about the syndrome that buries people and ends running dreams. Yes. It’s the IT-Band.
Before you read further, some homework. Wiki IT-Band and get orientated.
Now, whether or not you have some distal knee pain in the area where the IT-Band inserts at your knee, today’s MWod will be good for you.
There are no recipes. You have to use your brain, buy the offended tissues some slack, and mobilize what you find.
And be cool, deal with your business. Make sure your running is excellent, and that you stay ahead of this monster.
One of my best friends ended his dream of Navy Sealdom because of this evil-ness.

Mobility WOD 60 … Repeat 10 minute Squat test
Hey Mwod Mob,
Congrats on reaching day sixty of the mobility project. Do the quick math here won’t you? Ten horrible minutes a day x 60 days. That’s six hundred minutes of mobility. The big idea is that the fact that it’s virtually impossible to reach that kind of “take care of your business time” unless you do a little bit every day. Remember, one degree of change on the horizon represents a huge change in direction over time.
We’ve got another reason to be blown away. Our unique users hit 100’112 MWoders strong today with over 450k episodes checked out. Insane.
To celebrate? It’s that time of the month to have your paleo chair checked for 10 minutes.

Hey Flexy Ones,
Congrats on your continued obsession with performance.
Today’s Mwod is about opening up your hips with your back supported on the floor. Supporting the back in this way changes the mobility stimulus a bit and allows us a new take on the old dirty performance-vampiring tight business.
I’ve also included a nice bit of neural mobilization to keep your high tension wires running well through your beefy meat tunnels (what?). I’m talking about a quick fix to loosen up and restore motion to your nervous system through your back and arms. This is a bit of simplification, but many of the down stream elbow problems we treat in athletes have a neuro-dynamic component. That is, it’s possible to actually have pain and dysfunction that’s caused by, or has a component of poor nerve slidability. This is one of the reason why we want to keep the “fuzz” at bay, stay hydrated, and use dynamic warm-ups like leg-swings.
So spend a minute in the nerve flossing position above and see how you feel, especially before you go all crazy full snatch.
Test: Bottom position of snatch balance/full snatch
MWod: 2 min with leg press mob
2 min each leg figure four on the wall
2 min each straight leg door frame hammy

Happy Wednesday Flexi-Animals,
Someone this weekend pointed out that that were really stoked that they could actually squat for 10 minutes after nearly 2 months of working at it. I thought, “Great, you can now have dinner with 2/3 of the world, or go the bathroom in Thailand.” It came out as, “great job”.
As athletes, we are digging ourselves out of holes that we’ve been systematically creating for years. Your body’s tissues are like obedient dogs. You’ve just got to train them. They will get out of your way time and time again if you just give them a little input.
Check out Crossfit.com today for a stimulating discussion on why squatting, shooting the duck, pistols, and pooing are really all the same thing. click here
Today’s MWod is about dealing with your soft tissue sliding/quality.
You need to spend 10 minutes rolling around on the pain ball. I’ve given you some ideas in the video, but feel free to focus on any area that feels matted down.
Remember: If you respect yourself, you need to drink half your bodyweight in water in ounces every day as a baseline.
Being globally dehydrated alone, is enough to significantly impair your performance by letting fuzz grow like gangbusters.
Don’t be that guy. Drink some water, like the cool kids.
