When I was at the power monkey camp in Tennessee I put the athletes through a warm-up that everyone really enjoyed and several people asked if I had in a video format. Over this past weekend I got in front of a video camera to make that happen. I slung together a whole heck of a lot of my favorite mobility exercises for the entire body and plugged it into one big old video. The exercises selected are based off on the Joint by Joint concept popularized by Gray Cook . Check it out and let me know what you think.
These exercises can easily be plugged into your warm-up or cool-down for the day or used on an off days to promote mobility. If you’re interested in how I incorporate these exercises into a warm-up and throughout a training session you can find out by signing up for my fitness pain free programming.
