The mobliity wod will focus on overhead range of movement with regards to using the narrow clean grip. We will focus mainly on the the upper back Aka T-spine, as this is the major cause of unstable shoulder positioning on most crossfit athletes at CFO and also investigate the traps and triceps as these also effect shoulder range of movement due to their connection with the shoulder girdle.
