Alright, my first question is, WHO does Mobility/Yoga!? Second question, if your answer is yes, how often!? Every Monday I will be putting up some movements that you should try to do DAILY each week. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask me.  

First, rolling out your muscles is very important but it should NOT be the only thing you do. Look at the work outs you have this week. Think of what your body needs, what you feel when you are doing a lift or how you feel the next few days. Choose from there what mobility movement you should do each day, BEFORE and AFTER class. 

If you were in class when I was doing Mobility to warm up, you’ve done these movements already. These movements will open your most important joints and warm up your muscles! After class you should take more time holding each pose for 45 sec to 1 min to help your muscles rest and to prevent them from becoming tight and sore. 

Movements:

Downdawg (hold)

Raise Right or Left, step forward to lunge.

Make your way into spider man. Play with that, hold a little longer where it is tight.

Repeat BOTH legs 4 time. After class do 2 on each side BUT after spiderman make your way into pigeon. Hold the pigeon as long as you can, put more body weight on the  tightness and stiffness you feel. 

 

Inchwarm to Updawg

Inchwarm to plank position

Lower down towards the floor, DONT lay on floor.

Press your chest up, the TOP of your head towards ceiling, LOOK FORWARD!

Hips will drop, THIGHS DO NOT TOUCH THE FLOOR!

Make your way back to a downdawg position, then perform another Inchwarm to Updawg.

Repeat 8 times, before times. 2-4 times after class but holding each position for a longer period of time!

    I need to mobilize more. I feel so good afterwards but I always leave it as an afterthought. NO MORE!
