Tips for improved mobility no matter what age you are ⬇️⬇️⬇️
One of the main reasons I do mobility exercises is to prevent injury🤕. I want to be able to go back to the gym everyday and workout🏋️♀️. It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’ve pulled a muscle, and have to back-off from working out for awhile😤. You feel like all your hard work is going to be wasted. Of course, this isn’t true. If you know how to eat 🍽 to preserve muscle mass and do what you can physically while you’re healing, it won’t take long to get back to where you left off🥳.
✅ Make sure you warm-up ☀️ adequately and cool down ❄️ adequately. I don’t know about you guys, but the older I get, the more warm-up and cool-down I need. It usually takes me 2-3 rounds into the workout before I start feeling good!
✅ Stretching 🙆🏼♀️ and foam rolling are great ways to help release the fascia tissue which makes your muscles 💪🏻 move easier. When foam rolling, slowly roll out tight areas for 30 to 60 seconds until the tightness goes away.
✅ Crossover symmetry🤞🏻has been great for my shoulders. I used to have an area in my upper back that would get pulled if I did anything overhead🏋️♂️. I got in the habit of doing Crossover Symmetry every morning, and noticed when I went back to the gym, that I was not having the upper back issues anymore when going overhead.
✅ Active recovery such as a brisk walk🚶♀️, jog 🏃♀️ or swim 🏊🏻♀️ can help with DOMS (Delayed onset muscle soreness)
✅ Eat anti-inflammatory🔥 foods such as tomatoes 🍅, nuts, olive oil, spinach 🥗, kale, berries 🍓 and fatty fish 🐟.
✅ Of course, there’s always getting a massage 💆🏼♀️.
