Shoulders and Hips: July 16

Equipment needed: 1. Padded Mat. We have some great end-range stretch activation today! Today we are working on the flexibility, mobility, and stability of the shoulders and hips. We are starting off with an end-range stretch isometric to stretch out and activate the front of your shoulders and to increase shoulder extension. We are then working on a shoulder internal and external rotation activation movement. This will get all of your shoulders muscles firing. If you have any pain in these ranges of motion, go around the painful range, and stick to the pain-free range. We are finally finishing up with an end-range stretch isometrics technique for your adductors aka your inner thigh muscles. If you have any knee pain in this position, vary the angle that your knees are bent. Try for a little less or more knee bend.

You are crushing, we see you out there! Post on to your Instagram story or feed and tag us in it @movementvault. Have fun!

Hips, Knees and Wrists: July 15

Equipment needed: 1. Foam Roller. If you don’t have a foam roller, you can substitute with a mobility ball 2. Box, bench, couch or wall. Something to put your back leg against for the active couch stretch. 3. Padded Mat. Today is a day that everyone needs for their hip flexors! Today we are working on the flexibility, mobility, and stability of your hip flexors and wrists.

We are starting of with a muscle/fascia release for your hip flexors. If you don’t have a foam roller, you can use a mobility ball. We are then moving on to couch stretch end-range isometrics. This is one of the best active stretches for your hip flexors. It can be challenging and uncomfortable, this is normal. With that said, if coming up to a full lunge is too difficult or challenging, leave your front knee down on the mat. Another key is to make sure that your abs stay engaged. Don’t allow your low back to arch and extend. We are finishing up with wrist extension end-range stretch isometrics. The key is to stretch out your wrists as much as possible before starting your activation. If you have any pain in the front of your wrist, don’t go as deep into the stretch.
