We all know how important staying active is for our overall health and well-being. Whether that’s cardio exercise, lifting weights, stretching, or a combination of all three, there are clear physical, mental, and emotional benefits. The more we move, the better off we’ll be. If you find yourself stuck at home or working from home, try out this mobility routine.
This routine is meant to move each of the major joints of the body throughout their ranges of motion. It’ll help keep you from feeling tight and stiff and can be a great way to warm-up before a workout.
It starts with spinal movements and works out towards upper and lower extremity movements. This routine helps incorporate movements that are commonly neglected to help keep each joint fluid and mobile.
Stay loose, stay mobile, and stay active with this routine that can easily be performed 1-2 times per day in less than 10 minutes!
