      Is there a written synopsis for each Daily MWod. Some are identified as great post-exercise recovery work whereas others are great warmups. It would be nice to read a quick note to indicate, pre-workout, post-workout or general doesn’t matter when it is performed. I apologize in advance if this was already covered.

      There are not synopsis for each daily MIWod.
      Some entries indicate to complete before or after training.

      Pre wod:
      Dynamic work
      Band work
      Band work specifically focuses on the joint capsule, which is the shrink wrap that surrounds the joint and can cause significant restrictions.

      Post wod or before sleeping:
      Smashing, supernova, lax ball, gemini
      Long static holds

      From the FAQ When Should I Do the MIWod
      “The M|WOD is designed to be a discreet 10-15 minute daily practice in
      addition to your normal workout routine. The M|WOD 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. For example, the 10-minute squat test is not
      appropriate as a pre-workout M|WOD. However, rolling on the lacrosse
      balls to mobilize your thoracic spine prior to an overhead workout is an
      appropriate pre-workout M|WOD. The bottom line – be less concerned
      about when to do the M|WOD and be more concerned about addressing your
      tissue health and range of motion problems. Above all else, the
      Mobility|WOD is about improving your capacity to be in a good position
      during movement to improve performance and avoid injury.”
