This should be the final stages of your prep, the 10-15 minutes right before doing 16.4. Many people will need extra time to work on their overhead mobility before doing this event. Do that prep before you do what is shown in this video. This should be the final stage of preparation. This is movement prep, warm up, and neurologic preparation for the demands of this workout.
In this episode of The Movement Fix Podcast I am joined by none other than Gray Cook. Gray is someone whose work has influenced me tremendously through my schooling and my career. He is a physical therapist, strength coach, and most importantly (in my opinion) an amazing educator.
I don't usually write blog posts about pain because I think it can be over interpreted (meaning, if I say consider these things with knee pain while lunging, some may interpret that to mean that knee pain is ALWAYS fixed with this, which it isn't), but in this case I want to offer some food for thought.
This should be the final stages of your prep, the 10-15 minutes right before doing 16.3. Many people will need extra time to work on their bar muscle up technique before doing this event. Do that prep before you do what is shown in this video.
18 - How Much to Emphasize Pain Science, Relationship with CrossFit; with Jason Shane interviewing me Pt. 2
On episode 18 of The Movement Fix Podcast, I am joined by Jason Shane from Shane Physiotherapy, for part 2 .
We had such a great response from part 1 (find it here), that we decided to delve deeper into a candid conversation for part 2.

For 16.2 we are looking at a triplet of toes to bar, double unders, and squat cleans.
Now before we start, let's make sure we are on the same page with how to use this warm up.
This week on Movement Fix Monday I want to share with you guys a couplet you can use to work on your overhead mobility.
Static stretching isn't nearly as effective as repetitive end range loading and controlling your range of motion.
This couplet plays off of that notion.
16.1 consists of overhead walking lunges, bar facing burpees, and chest to bar pull ups.
The ranges of motion we likely will need to prepare for most people are the demands of the overhead position with the lunge and the shoulder position at the top of a chest to bar pull up. Lunges and burpees don't require a large amount of movement preparation or mobility in most people.
I was recently in Vancouver, BC (where Jason lives) for a workshop and brought my podcast setup so we could record a candid conversation together. Jason has, in my opinion, one of the great voices of all time. We had to showcase it in this great discussion we had.
One thing I have been working on a lot with people lately is their dynamic, closed chain hip control. I frequently take athletes through a single leg deadlift assessment and find that looking at their ability to create and control motion through all planes is valuable.
A couple of weeks ago while I was in Denver to teach a workshop, I made my way out to Boulder to Apex Movement Boulder.
While there, I asked the owners, Ryan Ford and Amos Rendao what they would teach first to someone who knows nothing about Parkour.
One of the two skills they said was the Parkour Roll.
