#tbt: The day I got Monty almost 8 years ago to today when he had his first teeth cleaning, some teeth pulled and a lump on his shoulder removed. It’s hard to believe he will be 9ish next month. #schnauzer #rescue #dogsofinstagram #petofinstagram #bestdecisionever #furbaby

I’m excited to have my rack partner back, @chels_mck. We shorties gotta stick together. Now, if I could get my squats as fast and efficient as my butterfly pullups. #squats #pullups #crossfit #smolovjr #crossfitgirls #workingonourcakes #seterminedtopassthebutttest

Hip Stability: this is a great one to do along with the hip flexibility stretch from last week. By adding the band as resistance it requires you to engage the glutes. Weak glutes can lead to tight hip flexors/TFL.

1. Band goes above the knee of the front leg. If right leg is forward, the object at which the band is attached should be on your left and vice versa for the left.
2. Get set-up in a split squat position (the more narrow your stance the harder it will be to balance).
3. Drop your back knee straight down as you do this your front leg will drive out in order to resist the band from pulling the knee in.
4. Complete 2-3 rounds of 15-20 reps on each side.

Thanks Mike and Megan from Next Level Chropractic for introducing me to this little gem! #hip #mobility #flexibility #fitness #therapy #glutes #crossfit #efficientcrossfitter @nextleveldr

Hip Flexibility/Mobility: I have very tight hip flexors and this is my go to hip flexor stretch. Set yourself up in a lunge position with the band on the back leg (for hip distraction), squeeze the glutes and tuck the tailbone and hold for 5-10 sec then release into a deep lunge by pushing the hip to the floor and hold 5-10 sec. Repeat 2 min each side. Happy stretching! #hip #mobility #crossfit #fitness #flexibility #hippower #efficientcrossfitter
