The ability to move each of your joints through their maximum range is important in preserving your youth and avoid injury.

A mobility routine acts as the perfect warm up before starting your workout or even cool down after a workout. Begin at the top and work your way down, pay particular attention to areas that feel tight or lack movement.

Perform 8-10 repetitions on each area/side

Part 1 - Standing

• Neck (both directions)
• Shoulders (focus on bringing the shoulders up as close to the ears)
• Thoracic spine (both directions)
• Hips (both directions)
• Knees (both directions)
• Feet (both directions)

Part 2 - Ground-based

• Knees/hips (both directions)
• Cat and cow
• Thoracic spine (imagine you’re moving while skipping, up and down)
