Discussing all things training, mindset, trends & more
Today on the Lunge & Lift podcast Ash & Rob tackle another buzz word topic and discuss hyper mobility.
In the context of a CrossFitter, to a dancer, yogi, or just your average avid gym goer, hyper mobility is a common thing we hear about. However, is it necessarily a bad thing?
As Rob puts it, “we’re all individual butterflies”, and if you understand ‘what’ you’re training and ‘why’, then you just need to remember that your squat doesn’t need to look like the bloke’s next to you. Training is never a case of “one size fits all”. You do you.
