Tired of chronic tightness in your low back and hips? Learn to Relieve Your Low Back Pain & Liberate Your Hips on Saturday April 2nd, 2015.
Everyone is welcome to join the Mobility and Corrective Exercise class at CrossFit 5885 (Apple Valley, MN), where we'll focus on addressing dysfunctions and alignment issues in the musculature surrounding the S-I (sacro-iliac) Joint.
If you have lower back, hip, buttock and/or sciatic pain issues this mobility and corrective exercise session IS FOR YOU!
We will be mobilizing the tissues around the S-I joint including the:
- Gluteus maximus and minimus
- Biceps Femoris
- Quadratus Lumborum
- Erector Spinae
Time allowing, we'll also lean some powerful, yet very simple corrective exercises designed to teach you how to stabilize and improve postural and dynamic muscle imbalances around the lumbo-pelvic girdle.
We'll be using a
- double lacrosse ball taped together (like a peanut)
- single lacrosse ball
- foam roller
- yoga mat
- yoga block
- yoga strap
If you own any of those pieces of equipment, please bring them along to class. I will have the set of 3 lacrosse balls available for purchase ($10 for all)
Become a Better Athlete: Learn How to Mobilize and Correct Imbalances in Your Body
Addressing your muscle and joint balance and function is important for all human beings, not just CrossFit or recreational athlete. Remember that the things you do the most (sitting, working at a computer with your head forward and using a mouse or texting) creates your day-to day posture and function. Repetitive stress of these daily postures DEMANDS that muscle and joint imbalances be corrected BEFORE you take that posture into repetitive strength building movements that require excellent body position and human kinematics.
Come and undo the damage from faulty form/bad technique and poor/incorrect posture and learn how to do some basic maintenance and repair work on your beautiful self. I hope you can make it!
This class is open to both CrossFit 5885 members and the public.
To attend, simply purchase a 10 Class Pass. Punch passes include CrossFit WODs, CrossFit Swimming, Spin class, Barbell Club, Yoga for Athletes AND the Mobility and Corrective Exercise class.
