Each Crossfitter will come to the appreciation that the hips are the driving force behind almost all of our movements. In order to generate force for the Thruster, a kettlebell swing, a pull-up kip, a burpee, and a dozen other movements – we all come to the realization that we need:
a) A Strong Kinetic Chain (Rigid torso aka Neutral spine, and organized Shoulder/hip girdles)
b) Range of Motion
c) Supple, Sliding Surfaces (muscles/fascia)
**We hope you can take the maintenance of your body with as much sincerity as you do your Muscle-up, and Deadlift. Consider mobility not an option, but a necessity to performance gains, and keeping your flesh in the gym and not on the operating table 🙂
