August 2016 is going to be “Mobility Month”! This does not mean that during the month of August you should only focus on mobility, but rather, use this month to truly figure out what mobility techniques work best for you and how to incorporate them into your daily routine!
Here is your month's challenge:
• Start your day (morning) with 5-10 mins of mobility. Every little bit counts, fam!
• Take 3-5, 5 minute breaks during the work day OR sneak in 5 minutes, 3-5 times into your seated/standing desk routine.
• Get to the gym on time to maximize all 10 minutes of the mobility portion.
• Finish your day with 5-10 minutes of mobility before bed.
Each week we will give you a few techniques to focus on. Do these daily and you will really notice a difference!
Morning: Up-dog/down-dogs; start slow, hold the poses for 20-30 seconds x10 reps. Rest/breathe, brush your teeth and come back again for a little faster intense pace 10-20 seconds x10 rounds. This should take a total of 7-8 minutes.
Work: Wall-back bends. They’re back! Enjoy them and do them! Do 5 at a time for 10 seconds each x3-5 breaks. This should take a total of 3-5 minutes. Do them 45 minutes to an hour apart.
Evening: Gently work on your splits while watching TV or listening to relaxing music, or heck, even meditate while doing it. Give yourself 3 FULL 3-minute attempts!
Ok. 3,2,1… GO!!!
