Perched in Desco Lounge, Shirley (Solihull)
And I’m in a bit of a pickle…
Its been a while since I referred to coffee but this is worthy
Having a had quick homemade espresso 45 mins ago…
I decided to order a green tea…
But the notoriety of me working from here has meant my Americano was made before I even ordered!
Great customer service, potentially one hell of caffeine fuelled, jittery email
Do you suffer with nagging pains in your body?
Maybe the result of old injuries, sport, or your lifestyle?
But today we touch on MOBILITY
Something usually done totally wrong as its not prescribed in anyway
I.e. you ‘just stretch’ and that’s it…
Kinda like expecting ‘just training’ to be effective
Instead we work similar to world renowned strength and conditioning coach Eric Cressey
(who of course I’ve spoke with) 😉
The godfather of mobility, injury and performance
So do you get frustrated by:
The lower back aches?
The shoulder ‘rubbing sensation’?
The persistent nagging neck pain?
This form of stretching is easy to not bother with if you don’t know its purpose
But in rest periods of exercises, it’s a prime time to address this
(Efficiency is key, we’re all busy as!)
So below is a quick summary of where to stretch and mobilise, for specific issue you have:
SHOULDER and NECK PAIN:
Mobilise your thoracic spine, lats, and pectorals
LOWER BACK PAIN:
Mobilise your hip flexors, glutes, quadriceps and thoracic spine
Mobilise your hips in general, ITB’s and ankles
Notice how often the key areas to mobilise aren’t often the areas themselves?
Otherwise you’re doing the equivalent of scratching a scar…
Feels nice briefly, but does more harm in the long run
