      In some of the mobility workouts, it indicates they aren’t drills that should be done before a workout. How long of a gap are we talking – a couple of hours, or save it for the next day? I tweaked my back yesterday squatting and have been trying to figure out where I was off – wondering if I tried to squat too soon after the gut smashing mwod (it was probably an hour or two).

      Sorry to hear that! Gut smashing is one of those things best done at the end of the day before bed. It is not ideal to soften up the trunk so to speak before you are going to ask it to be stiff for squats or any other lift, even if there is a gap. 
      I tell people it is best to think of the 10-15 min of MWOD as a separate session from your gym time. If you have to do it in the gym do to equipment or time constraints I would use it as your end of session stuff. If you can do MWOD at home think evenings.
