I wanted to go through a quick video on a great whole body mobility exercise.
It’s an excellent exercise if you are sitting for a long period of time.
MUST DO Whole Body Mobility Exercise
CLICK HERE to watch the YouTube video.
This exercise is something that you can step out of your chair then go through and you will be loosening up your hips, your mid back, your shoulders and your neck. It is something that doesn’t need any equipment and it takes hardly any room. If you are going to do 3 to 5 repetitions on each side, you will be feeling better by just taking 20 to 30 seconds to do it. This exercise is called the Lunge with a Back Reach.
I will get Donnalee to demonstrate it.
Lunge with a Back Reach
Donnalee will be taking a big lunge forward and then she will bring her arms up over and back. She’s coming back down, stepping back and stepping with the other leg. She’s taking a big step which helps in loosening up that hip, activating the glutes in order to stretch out the front of the hip again, and working on the front of the hip with range of motion. She’s loosening up the mid back and loosening up her shoulders. She’s arching her head back in order to work on loosening up that mid back which tends to be tight in people and then going back.
You take a nice big step. It’s a nice smooth movement. You’re arching back, holding it for like two seconds and then coming back. I recommend that you start off with 2 to 3 repetitions then you can go up to 5 repetitions on each side for a total of 10 repetitions. See how you feel. I know you will feel looser on your hips, on your shoulders, on your mid back, and on your neck. All those areas are typically tight and stiff in people that are sitting for a long period of time. Give that exercise a go!
