When is the last time you “changed the oil in your joints?” Hint: When is the last time you performed a Movement Vault routine? (Smart) Motion is lotion for your joints. Let’s get after some scheduled body maintenance together!
Today we are giving your lateral (side) body and back exactly what it needs. This includes all of the muscles that surround your spine, which are essentially your core muscles. Due to all of the sitting and sedentary lifestyles that a large percentage of the population has, these muscles that are located on the side of your body tend to be tight and weak. We are going to fix this today!
Equipment needed: 1. Foam Roller. 2. Padded Mat (optional). Today we are working on the flexibility, mobility, and stability of the all of the muscles that are located on the side of your body. We are starting off with a muscle/fascia release for your obliques, quadratus lomburum, rotator cuff muscles, and lats. Next we are getting into a stretch and activation movement for these same muscles. Try to ensure that you are feeling the stretch on the side of your body that is facing down. If you don’t feel the stretch, rotate your hips very slightly forward or backward until you feel the stretch. We are finishing up with a movement that will both stretch out and activate these same muscles in a different way. Make sure to bend over as far as your can.
