As CrossFit gets more and more attention, the number of boxes as well as the number of athletes is increasing. To minimize the risk of injury and reach the best outcome of your training, pay attention to these 8 mistakes and try to avoid them:
1. Feeling confident that you already know everything
In CrossFit, as in any other sport, you should never stop learning. There is always something you can improve. CrossFit is an ongoing learning process and even if they are not your favourite exercises, you need to work on your weaknesses. Of course it is more fun to do the exercises you are already good at, but hammering your weaknesses will make you a much better CrossFitter in the long run.
2. Not paying attention to your mobility
Improving the mobility is often not the first priority, but it’s necessary to improve your whole body fitness. You can work on your mobility at home, and just ten minutes a day will make a huge difference. Missing mobility holds back your process, so take your time to work on it regularly. Mobility work will make you feel better during the days after the workout, improve your movements and lower the risk of injuries.
