Mobility Workout

I’ve been playing around with a mobility specific workout for a few days and thought I would share it with you.

The purpose of the mobility workout is to restore functional range of motion,flexibility, engage the core and help loosen the numerous knots found in the human body.

As we age, certain muscles begin to shorten whiles others continue to weaken. I kept these facts in mind along with maintaining an ability to progress, regress or subtract a given movement and still address mobility issues.

Goal: Address 9 common knots
Spine. Shoulders
Hips. Knees
Ankles

Tight Areas – Lengthen and Mobilize
Weak Areas s Stabilize and Strengthen
Promote functional movement and balance.

Age related weaknesses/tightness
Posterior Chain. Hands
Hips Knees
Ankles. Core
