We all know as part of this Whole Life Challenge there are certain things we must do daily to acquire points. One of those daily activities is stretching for 10 minutes a day. This mobility doesn’t have to be anything specific. It can be random stretches. Anything from reaching down and touching your toes to stretch your hamstrings or grabbing your foot and and pulling it to your butt to stretch your quad. But, what’s this really doing for you?
I want you guys to think of ways to mobilize that are specific to you. Think of the last time you tried to do a certain movement in the gym. Did you feel restricted in any positions? If so, it might be time to mobilize certain areas that will make you more efficient in your movement. Did you ever try to go into a squat and felt like you couldn’t go deep enough? Sounds like you might need to stretch your hips and your ankles. Have you ever tried to snatch and felt like you just couldn’t get in the right position to successfully keep the bar over your head when you tried to squat? Mobilizing your shoulders, chest, and t-spine might just do the trick. If you have any questions, make sure you ask. We’d love to give you some areas to work on to help you improve better function and range of motion.
There are tons of ways your body is trying to tell you that it needs help. Stop for a second and listen. Next time you work on your mobility, choose certain areas that you know will help make you a better you.
