I watch this girl lift all the time. What an inspiration.
Three different mobility movements today.
I have to admit over the past three weeks life has been a lot different for me. I have not been home for more then a day at a time nor have I been working. For the first time in my life I used the excuse that I had too much going on in my life, that I could not find five minutes to stretch or work on my mobility, or that I was too mentally drained to do it and deserved a break.
Let me tell you I feel like crap. I feel aches and pains I have never felt before, I feel tired even though I have been sleeping more then normal, I'm forgetting things, I feel grumpy and angry numerous times a day for no good reason. Yikes!
My point in sharing is to let you know from experience that putting in the work daily really does make a difference. I forgot how much my evening stretch played a roll on my mental health. My ability to unwind from the day to reset and prepare my body for the next day.
My second point is to remind everyone that you only have one body so treat it well. You have the ability to get up everyday and get moving, so do it. There are people in this world that are too sick to move, that have physical limitations where taking three steps once a day is an achievement. To say you do not have time is really just a choice you are making to prioritize something else in your life. When really what is more important then your mental and physical health? You are the most important person in this world so take care of you.
With that here are three video's for mobility Monday. Enjoy!
First video do one side of the body for 2 minutes moving through the three positions. Second video do 6-8 per side.
Three exercises to incorporate into your weekend workouts. These can be done on their own or as warm up exercises to whatever workouts you have planned.
Don't let the weekend become your weak end!
Remember this can be three minutes of your day or 12. Do these three movements as many times you want throughout the day.
A quick video for Mobility Monday with only two movements. Alternate sides for one minute while working on getting deeper into each lateral lunge as the minute continues.
One Minute Monday is what we will call this one. I hope you can spare one minute of your day.
I saw this posted on a site and thought I would share as I have heard people, myself included, refer to this when it comes to reaching certain goals.
One reason people resist change
is because they focus on what they have to give up instead of what they have to gain.
Food for thought!
I say to my clients over and over that mobility and recovery work needs to be done daily. This can be 30 minutes of work or it can be 3 minutes depending on your day.
It is hard to help clients increase range of motion, rehab injuries, and recovery from lifts when you only see them two maybe three times a week for an hour at a time. So much of this work is put on the client to do on his or her own time.
In order to make it easier and to encourage my clients to do these things, I have started Mobility Monday's and Weekend Recovery video's. I keep the video's short to fit busy schedules but it still requires you to take the initiative to do them.
Consistency is the key to everything. Below are weeks 1 and 2 of Mobility Monday's.
