      After watching more and more MWod videos I’m thinking

      There must be something fundamentally wrong with the sport somebody
      is doing if there is so much need to fix on a weekly basis. Makes me actually very scared to go
      back in to crossfit.

      My Question: Are there any movement patterns that could be done on daily bases.
      a friend mention Bearcrawls for example are great for the shoulder stabilizer.

      Cause lets be honest, a caveman did not do any of the mobility Wod’s.
      So In my mind, this means get rid of the wrong movements/sports and
      incorporate the right ones. Instead of fixing constantly problems that get produced,
      because we do stuff that is just not natural… aka 50 Kipping pullups… and so on.
      I agree you should be able to use your body properly… and the movement of for example a Kipping pullup
      might be natural, but not 50 or more. Kelly says you need to learn the software for your body… I think this Idea is atleast 50% wrong.
      How did the caveman learned its software! I guess through natural movements that provide Mobility training automatically.
      Hope nobody takes this as a war against crossfit or Kelly. But I think its a valid cretique.

      As for daily movement patterns, i would look to:
      The Naked Warrior by Pavel book and DVD – i love his GTG “Grease the Groove” methodology which basically says to do movements never to failure all day long.  walk under a chin up bar, do a few chin ups, then continue on. come to a chair, do a few single leg pistols into it. then walk on. etc.
      Convict Conditioning book and DVDs – lots of body weight stuff in there, so doable in/around the house
      Raising the Bar book and DVD – more body weight stuff with a bar – I love jungle gyms for kids!
      Original Strength and Original Strength Performance by Tim Anderson – he promotes a ton of basic movements like crawling etc. You can download his original book Pressing Reset.
      Exploring Functional Movement DVD by Gray Cook and MovNat guy Erwan Le Corre – Gray Cook is a PT and really into early movement patterns for rehab and health/fitness.  You should also look into MovNat.
      Good luck!

      Sometimes we stuck in our fitness routine and get bored or hit plateau, push ups and squats. There are new movements or training that can help us move again and be back on track. Let’s expose ourselves and explore new opportunity in learning new methods and fitness discipline. Get more ideas here Muscle Building Resorce Site
