Get your day started with this 10-minute mobility routine from Tim Kayode, performance therapist and founder of Myoset. The ideal sequence to slot in post your Symprove shot. Let’s go!
Let's get started:
Breath work: Lay flat on your back with both legs bent. Interlock both hands and place them over your belly button. Close your eyes and breath in through the noise for 2 seconds and breath out through the mouth for 3 seconds. Focus on breathing through your stomach. Repeat this sequence for 1-3 minutes.
Dynamic Figure 4: Lie on your back with your legs bent and feet flat on the ground. Place your right ankle on your left knee and travel down towards your left shoulder. Repeat this sequence x5 on both sides.
Lumbar Rotations: Lay on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Rotate your knees sideways while keeping them together. Rotate your arm toward the opposite side, place it on your rib cage and guide it across to further the range. Switch sides each time. X5 per side.
Dynamic Hip Flexor Stretch: Split your stance into a semi lunge position, tuck your pelvis in while keeping your chest up then lift your arm up towards the ceiling and rotate towards the front leg. Repeat this sequence x5 per side.
Dynamic Rhomboid Stretch: Stand tall, interlock both hands and extend both arms out in front of you. Round both shoulders and slowly rotate side to side in a controlled fashion until you feel a stretch. Repeat this sequence x5 per side.
Remember, the key when stretching and performing mobility drills is to breathe and maintain control.
Now, if you don’t mind, we’ll get back to stretching our rhomboids...
