As much as we all love to get a good sweat on, most of us loathe the pain and time it takes to stretch and mobilize. Just remember, anything worth having is going to make you work, and these to elements of fitness are critical not only to your longevity in your workouts, but your lifelong wellness.
Your mobility training doesn’t have to take more than 10 minutes of your day and can be done with one or two lacrosse balls. We sell them for $5 each, or you can buy (or forage!) your own. We practice simple and succinct mobility drills in class. Pick one drill to work for one week. Do it once or twice per day and you will see a noticeable difference in that area. The more you do it the less it will hurt. Check out mobility drills at this link.
Flexibility requires prolonged stretching. Again, pick one area to focus on – the hamstrings are a great one to start with. Hold the stretch for 90 seconds per side once or twice a day after you have been moving. Do not try this if you have been sitting in a chair for a while. After a workout, walk or some basic activity like house cleaning is a good time. After 7 days of this you will feel a noticeable difference. Read more HERE.
