Hip and Low Back Mobility Seminar this Saturday!

Join Dr. TJ Bachmeyer, Diablo CrossFit member and owner of the SPINE Chiropractic Care for a two hour seminar covering Hip and Low Back!  This class is for EVERYONE that squats, snatches, rope climbs, burpees, sits at a desk, drives a car, you get the idea… Correct Mechanics and motor patterns in the hips and low back are crucial to CrossFit.  In this workshop we’re going to go after every corner and tight movement you’ve got and correct them, fast! We’re going to give you an arsenal of mobility drills and corrective exercises and motor pattern corrections that you can use specifically for your personal hip and low back squeaks, pains and restricted ranges of motion.

What the seminar will cover:

  • Hip position and testing for restricted movement
  • Correct position for hip and low back

  • Corrective tools to mobilize, rehab, and prevent injury
  • Deeper squat position

Scaling Guide: 6 – 9 Minutes

Scale Up: 155/105 and do a third round.

Coaching Tips: The weight for the squats should be such that you can do at least the first round unbroken (not needing to drop the bar).  It is fine if you pause at the top a couple times to slow them down a bit!  The legs should be a bit spiced up from the squats when you get on the rower, so using a more hip centric pull can help you get a few pulls in before your legs recover from the squats.
