When you are pain free, everything is better! I talk to people all the time that say “I’ve had this ______ pain for years. It’s just the way it is and the will it will be.” And then I ask, “what have you tried to help your pain?” Most of the time they tell me “not much” or describe some cookie cutter stretches or exercises. I then explain that they do not need to live life this way and that their performance in their day to day life and in the gym, if they workout, can be so much better. The best part is that most of the time the answer to fix the pain/issue is the same thing that can help prevent it from coming back or ever occurring in the first place.

Equipment needed: 1. Padded Mat. We’ve got a great 1-2 combo for you! Today we are working on the flexibility, mobility, and stability of your shoulders and hips.

We are starting off with an end-range stretch isometric technique for the front of your shoulders, lats, and rotator cuff muscles. The key is to get as deep into the stretch as possible and then start to activate your muscles. Really put the effort and focus into these as they are highly effective. Next we are finishing with an end-range stretch isometric technique for your adductor muscles, which are located on the inner area on your upper leg aka your groin area. Make sure you are keeping your knee straight on the leg you are stretching out and then push your hips back. Focus on keeping a relatively neutral spine with this one.

Say hello to your new found mobility. Doesn’t it feel good to finally be making progress. We pride ourselves on giving you the most effective techniques out there. Thanks for helping us spread the word! Post a pic/video on your facebook or to your Instagram story or feed and tag us in it @movementvault. We’ll send you a comment and some ❤️. Get it guys!
