Paradigm Shift

Paradigm Shift

If you’re anything like me, you don’t stretch enough. It’s not glamorous. It’s nothing like picking up a barbell, doing “Fran” or running a 5k. Stretching is something you do for a few minutes to warm up your joints, swinging your leg, and arms, rolling your neck, and if you’re lucky, a quick Sampson.

But what about performance? If I told you that by stretching, and gaining an improved range of motion that was “already there”, low lying fruit that by taking five minutes before a workout, you would capture, and subsequently increase your back squat or deadlift by 30+ lbs, increase the load you could hold overhead in the bottom of a snatch, or improve your “Fran” time by 30 seconds. Would you do it? That’s exactly the shift that took place for me yesterday in Kelly Starrett’s “Movement, Mobility, and Maintenance” Seminar. For me, that answer is YES. No, it’s HELL YES. What about you?
