At CrossFit Moxie, Chris Michelmore tries and keep the warm-up as varied as the WOD, and in doing so he hopes to prepare his athletes for the day’s work and keep them stimulated with new combinations of movements.
Every warm-up is different at the San Jose box, and each prep period is based around the idea that a CrossFit workout is an athletic endeavor. Athletes warm up before stepping on the football field or jumping into the pool at a swim meet, so CrossFit athletes should get their bodies fully ready for whatever challenge appears on the whiteboard that day.
Tune in and pick up a new warm-up for your next WOD.
