This week's WOD was submitted by @freestylestrength on Instagram.They tagged us in their mobility exercise to improve your squat technique. Mobility training is just as important as strength training.:

Sitting in the Squat

-Here’s what 5 minutes in a squat looks like.

If you’re having a hard time squatting or want to improve your technique, take the time to sit.

-I sprained my ankle in December and have been lacking some dorsiflexion. I used a band the on the distal portion of the talocrural joint for some mobilization.
