Mobility And Strength Training Part I
Ever try to do a pull up when you are all tight without a warm up? It sucks! Hanging there makes my body feel like it is going to snap in half.
However, after a proper warm up, they are no problem.
It is crucial to get your body ready to lift….but you shouldn’t stop at just a general warm up.
The problem is people complain that “I just don’t have enough time in the gym to warm up!”
Peek a boo! It’s just me, your old buddy – shoulder mobility
Here is a solution, include mobility exercises during your regular workout as exercises! It is not something revolutionary, but these exercises will save you a ton of time, and increase your overall health.
Here is the first exercise, and it is extremely simple.
I’m not going to just give you a lift and just say “do it because it is cool.” Insert it the upper body workout below and check out your results:
1. Bench press 5 x 3
2a. Chin ups 4 x 8
2b. Plate halos 4 x 12 (each direction)
