Mobility wod

I started working in a mobility wod everyday starting with episode 1 and working my way up, heres my question...

should I be sore after a mobility wod?

I feel like I am being pulled and stretched in all sorts of ways and Im sore afterwards, especially after sitting in full squat for 10 minutes. Am I doing something wrong or is this normal when starting mobwod?

Re: Mobility wod

Hard to say without knowing anything about you, but it's common. If it continues for more than a week or 2, either you're doing something wrong, or there is something wrong.

Re: Mobility wod

Thanks Brian, as my day has progressed the soreness has gotten much milder. I really worked on my hip flexers and my full squat yesterday and Ive felt a little nibble in my left hip flexer, but as the day has gone on it has lessened.

For me the 10 minutes is killer depending on how I do it. In fact, if I'm not using anything but the ground, I have to break it up several times to give my muscles a rest. I've had better luck holding onto something during this to make life easier. Usually I hold onto one of the poles that supports my deck. Using a support like that lets me relax more and do 6+ minutes in a row.

In KStar's first squat test video, he mentions that you may want to hold onto something if it is difficult for you. The first few times I did the squat test I tried to tough it out. That always ended up with me getting my ankles and other areas worn out, and I wouldn't have the discipline to get 10 minutes in a squat when it was taking more than 20 minutes with all of my breaks. With something to hold onto I get a great stretch and I feel fine afterwards.
