Positioned for Success

Dan P. completeing a pull

Starting position is very important to most efficiently execute a big lift.  Getting into that best start position doesn’t just happen by accident, it requires some prep.  Just so happens that the Internet’s longest running series of mobilization videos, Kelly Starrett’s Mobility WOD provided some of the jumping off points in order to get ready to deadlift over the last couple of days (Episode 104 & Episode 105), and Monday we’re going for a heavy single in the dead.  Check out the videos, grab a lacrosse ball, baseball, coffee mug, wine bottle, or whatever other torture implement you’ve got lying around, get mobilizing, and get ready for a big pull Monday.
