In A Better Warm-up, Coach Glassman wrote, “We need a warm-up that will increase body temperature and heart rate, provide some stretching, stimulate the entire body and major biomechanical functions, provide practice for basic movements, and finally, prepare for rigorous athletic training.”

Adrian Bozman and Todd Widman are two of CrossFit’s top trainers. They spend a significant portion of their time traveling around the country working the CrossFit Level 1 and Level 2 certification seminars.

In this episode, we catch them in a visit to CrossFit Flood, where they do two private training sessions and one group class. This Part 2 1/2 is the group warm-up they do before the main workout. They address all the essential components of Coach Glassman's article while building community and camaraderie.

Hey guys,

I'm trying to improve the quality of my push ups and I noticed something in this vid that I'm not very familiar with. At about the 4 min mark Todd instructs a gentleman to shrink the distance between the pelvis and the rib cage to take the curve out of the lumbar spine.

I'm just wondering if anyone can shed some light on the the purpose of this for me or perhaps a link to any literature pertaining to it as I can't really find anything.

Thanks!

Rob

I watched the video and got the general idea of the warm-up, but is the exact protocol (reps, sets, exercises, etc.) written down somewhere? Thanks for the new ideas.
