Mobility

By Performance Rehabilitation Coach Katie Meredith

Great after you’ve been sitting watching Netflix for too long, and an excellent warm up before a workout, too! Read the instructions below and follow the video above.

1. Hip opener: 30-45 seconds each side – REPEAT 2x

  • In a high plank position, bring your foot forwards outside your hand into a low lunge position.
  • Be dynamic; sit into your hips and feel for a stretch through the muscles around the hip joint.

2. Spinal Segmental Roll-down – REPEAT 2x

  • Stand with your knees slightly softened.
  • Start by tucking chin to chest, then let your spine ‘roll’ down, one vertebra at a time. Keep knees soft.
  • Bring yourself back to standing in the same way; tuck pelvis under.

3. Overhead Dowel (broomstick) Squat – REPEAT 5X

  • Hold a broomstick over your head, feet in a slightly wider squat position.
  • Squat down, aiming to keep back straight and the dowel about your head.
