I just finished off a short flexibility session this morning to start my day. This is something that I do almost every morning. I started the routine eight or nine years ago, and it has made a TREMENDOUS difference in improving recovery, mobility, conditioning, and overall athleticism.
If you are looking for similar benefits, and you aren’t currently doing a routine like this, I suggest you work something like this into your training as well!
Here is the short series from today, if you want to give it a try. I held each of these poses for about 45 seconds each:
– Low lunge
– Wide leg stretch / straddle
– Lying spinal twist
– Couch stretch
– Standing legs-apart stretch
– Seated spinal twist
If you want some additional help, advice, or instruction incorporating this sort of thing into your routine, check out my full REGENERATE – Simple Recovery for Lifters and Athletes program here:

To your continued success!
