Simple Dynamic Stretching to Effectively Enhance Mobility

Last week I introduced the pros/cons of foam rolling and left you guys hanging about what research has shown to be most effective in regards to improving mobility.

Here are a few stretches I do every morning before I begin my workout that have helped my flexibility drastically.

10 reps each leg x 1 set each exercise.

Dynamic stretching helps improve flexibility without negatively affecting strength performance [2]. By doing these simple exercises, you are preparing your body to be able to produce high amounts of force since these stretches are performed in an explosive, controlled manner [1].

If you incorporate these two simple stretches in your workout, the power of compounding will come in effect and your body will thank you down the road. Especially in strength training, when you start lifting heavier weights, these workouts should benefit as you become stronger, fitter, and faster.

Stretching everyday for just 5-10 minutes in a preferably quiet location (not the case here) completely de-stresses your body and can enhance your mind. It’s a great way to start the day and put you in a productive mindset. Hope this helps.

Have a great weekend, and MAKE TODAY COUNT.

Hey Everyone! I'm really excited to announce that I will be officially starting cooperbrunnerfitness! To give a quick overview, I will basically be discussing concepts or frameworks I've learned through research that I believe are critical to learn to become a disciplined, successful individual in all aspects of life. Your probably wondering.. Why are you all of the sudden deciding to become a blogger? Well... For years I have been studying/reading about influential people (Warren, Gary V, Tony Robbins, Zuck, Jobs..) that began with nothing and incrementally worked their way into becoming successful entrepreneurs. My hope is that while writing these blogs, I can ultimately inspire you to change your life and conquer those challenges you face everyday that block you from your goals. By no means am I saying that everything I talk about is the magic secret to success, but by reading the content I write about, hopefully you can take away some small tips/advice that can help inspire you to create ways on improving your life and the others around you. MAKE TODAY COUNT.
