The couch, computer, car, and cell phone all take a toll on our bodies, turning our proud, confident, and powerful posture into a human cashew, delivering sub-par results in our running and life.
As a runner, you understand that our feet, ankles, knees and hips are typically stiff and weak. Yet we love to run, and when we do a lot of things can go wrong.
Taking a few moments before and after a run to mobilize our stiff joints and muscles will help carry us a long way toward improved quality of life, reduce pain, and increased performance.
Staying healthy and pain free is brought about by improving the mobility and stability of our joints.
The video below has 50 mobility drills that you can use as a warm up, cool down or throughout the day to stay mobile.
