      The mobility for the specific lifts really help, but one item I am struggling with is getting completely warmed-up prior to a specific lift or WOD. Are there are sort of workouts that you would recommend to do to prime the body for a squat, deadlift, snatch, clean, etc.?

      My cf gym used to provide a thorough warm-up specifically for the WODs, but I have forgotten many of them.

      Cameron,
      Great to hear mobility specific to certain lifts are helping you.
      Here are a few episodes &Facebook links to different warm ups that may help you put a warm up.
      Some combination of them may help prepare for a Wod.
      Warm Up: Erin Cafaro-Rowing (Olympic Gold Medalish)
      Warm Up: Brian MacKenzie Running Warm Up
      Episode 339: MWod and Warmup: Olympic Lifting
      Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019 – Pre-Snatching Warmup
      Saturday, September 29th, 2018 – Shoulder Warm-up
      Sunday, July 8th, 2018 – Pre-Pressing Warmup

      There are more if you search warm up on the archives on the virtual mobility coach

      Hi… are the “Pre” Exercises not designed for a warmup? Would you suggest perform them in an extra mob. session?

      Hi Ben,
      Yes, the pre-workout/pre-sport mobility work is for before workouts. It isn’t necessarily a warm-up.

      Hello Together,

      I have not found the right forum for my question. My question is about:

      Train the Injured Athlete –> Hip –> Impingment. Here the following is described:

      Pick a …. variation, … Slow eccentric and stop at a depth that does not hurt, hold for a two count, then explode up.

      Are there any videos that make this more clear?
      Should/could additional weight be used here?
      Would it be right/more effective to do this exercise with a Flywheel/eccentric trainer?

      Thanks a lot
      Sebastian

        The description is meant to be general. If you have a very sensitive athlete, you may not need any external loading to start. Adding load is appropriate if it can be tolerated. Using a flywheel is a great way to load if you have one available. The goal is to train the athlete as best you can in the range of motion of the exercise you are choosing that does not cause an exacerbation of symptoms.

      Hi Sebastian,
      If you start a new forum topic with your question more people will see it because it will have a title based on the question. Right now people won’t see it unless they are looking for information on warming up.

      This is a general question about weighted vests. I have a client who is wondering what kind of weighted vest I would recommend. She wants to progress to walking with it on to help build bone density. Does TRS have any thoughts on weighted vests? What would you recommend? She has a small frame about 100lbs. Thank you!
