      I am new to mobilityWod and new to even trying to become more mobile. I have been going to crossfit for about a year, though sporadically. I am increasing my consistency and I want to start working on overall mobility. I occasionally deal with lower back pain in my back on my lower right side right at the glute. I would like to address that but really just constantly work towards becoming more mobile in all areas. I have always felt like I am not very “flexible”( I suppose the correct all encompassing term is mobility), but crossfit has shown me how bad I really am.

      So, with all that being said, where do I start? I signed up for mwod Pro to get the daily rx, but I think what I really need is to start at episode one from the archives and move forward.  I would also like someone to just tell me what gear I need. I have 4 bands(black, purple, green and red), but pretty much nothing else for mobility.

      Dwayne,

      Welcome to MWOD. 
      In terms of where to start the daily Rx is a great place. Try doing it every day for a month and see how you feel. I would also recommend using your squat, DL position and HS push up or press as a test/retest. By this I mean perform a squat, do some mobility drills and re-test it after. If your squat feels better than you are doing the right stuff. If it feels the same than move on to a different mobilization. 
      In terms of equipment, it sounds like you have enough bands. Get yourself a lax ball, make a peanut or buy a gemini and get some voodoo bands. 
      If you really want a more in-depth understanding of these concepts, I would recommend buying Kelly’s book and reading it over.
      Take care,

      Thanks for the information Danny. I do have BSL and have been reading it a little at a time – alot of info to digest.

      So you are saying I should not start from the beginning of the archived episodes? Go ahead and start with the Daily RX episodes?

      You can start from the beginning if you want. There really is no bad place to start. The important part is that you are starting. 

      Take care,

      Dwayne–
      You can start from the beginning and see each concept/aspect as it was introduced and when equipment was introduced through the Year of Mobility and beyond. This can help with your understanding of concepts/ideas because you will view all of the episodes in the order they were presented.

      I would highly recommend attending a Movement and Mobility Seminar. This is an outstanding day that really adds another dimension to understanding and gives you hands on time working with different mobilizations.
