Have you ever tried a mobility workout? This type of training is key because it keeps your joints healthy, improving your range of motion and keeping you pain- and injury-free. If you’re looking for a way to increase your mobility while getting in a solid strength workout, take a moment and check out these moves from Angela Baklis, an osteopath, MovNat Level 1-certified movement guide, and certified clinical Pilates instructor at The A Life in Melbourne, Australia.
All you need for these unique exercises is a book. No, you won’t be reading it — keep the cover closed and use it like a slider for moves like V-sit crunches, side lunges, and moving push-ups. You’ll notice that you’re working your arms, core, leg, and butt muscles but also challenging the joints in your shoulders, knees, elbows, and hips. It’s a true double whammy, and we’re definitely adding these moves to our workout routine!
