The Benefits of Joint Mobility Training
I learned the hard way that keeping your joints healthy and mobile is one of the most important things you can do for your health and fitness.
When I was younger I did lots of lifting and zero mobility work.
My body paid the price.
I was in my early twenties when my body started letting me know about it.
My joints were stiff and achy and my body was sore all the time.
Once I discovered joint mobility training, I was able to fix my body and start feeling and performing optimally again.
The thing is, joint mobility work needs to be performed daily.
Use it or lose it.
Especially as we get older and the mileage starts adding up.
Since joints don't have their own source of blood flow, the only way to lubricate them is through movement.
Taking a joint through it's full range of motion clears away waste products that accumulate and bathes the joint in synovial fluid - the joint's natural lubricant.
This process helps repair damaged joints and keeps them healthy and strong.
Again, this needs to be done daily.
So every morning, as soon as you get out of bed, take 10-20 minutes to move your joints.
Make big circles - move through a full range of motion.
Move every joint from head to toe, spending extra time on the spine.
You're only as young as your spine, so take care of it!
I promise you, this 20 minute sacrifice will pay huge dividends.
Your body will become stronger and more resilient.
You'll feel younger and more athletic.
And you'll avoid the injuries, aches and pains that seem to plague most people.
Start today - don't wait until you're in pain, like I did, to start taking care of your body.
