This part from the FAQ is basically the biggest problem of the book:
“The MWOD can be done before or after a workout or at night when you are laying on the floor watching TV. Some of the mobilizations are very effective before workouts as part of your warm-up and movement preparation strategies. On the other hand, some of the mobilizations are best done post-workout or at a completely separate time of the day”
Cause I realy don’t know and I don’t have the time to learn or study/figure out, Which movements can or should be done before or after workout.
I guess nobody did this kind of list for them self? 🙂
I will go through my normal warmup everyday and if I feel a particular movement isn’t quite right I’ll work on it pre workout mostly T-Spine, Quads, and Adductors for me. I’ll do 15-30 minutes of mobilizing before I go to bed most nights. The only things I won’t mobilize before a workout per hearing it on MWod multiple times is my Psoas, Illiacus, QL or Neck (neck isn’t in the book but more on daily mwod). Hopefully this helps.
Thank you glenn!
I wrote this post a while back which may help – it is a quick start guide for MWOD:
Mhhh, to be honest. That sounds like, Get the Book, by the tools, study the book, study the videos…
Screening is watching a person move.
What you see directs where you go to work.
Some time is needed learning the basics because it deals with systems not isolated items.
Yes, it is different from other approaches so different things are required to begin understanding it.
One way is to start a Day 1 and move forward from there.
You are introduced to concepts, tools etc. as they are introduced to the mwod.
I disagree. I’m a teacher my self. Having created entire curriculum. Maybe for a different topic.
I for example would like to give this book to my mum. But she would never go further then the first 20 pages….
i think you hit on where BSL is right now. it is a transition work from what was formerly stuff you knew only as a PT or coach and most of the time the two disciplines didn’t even cross over. so you had to spend years going to PT school, or years as a coach to really understand and apply this stuff. I don’t think a manual existed before BSL that brought it all together. either it was one coach’s methods without medical explanations, or a medical text which was too hard to read for anyone but a doctor.
My opinion might be a little skewed, as I started BSL after watching the entirety of the available MobilityWOD over the course of a year or so and obsessing about the information, but I didn’t really find the book poorly organized.
