Simple Mobility Routine for Off Days

I just got back from playing my Wednesday basketball.

I can’t believe that this is my last week playing some ball in my 30’s! I’ll never forget playing in my first league in 3rd grade.

I was just a little more mobile back then. Maybe you can relate? :)

Anyway, as we get older, we lose our mobility and flexibility. But look, it doesn’t have to be that way.

A common question I get on my Facebook Q & A is What can I do on my off day to stay active?”.

I’m not sure what the infatuation is with all these “Burpee Challenges” popping up on Facebook. I don’t get it. It’s certainly not anything like that… unless you’re wanting to feel worn out, fatigued and want your workouts to be horrible.

No wonder you may be feeling a little tight and worn out. Burpees are NOT a recovery strategy. The same goes for 1,000 KB Swings. And for crying out loud, neither is this…

“Today’s my off day. I think I’ll do 100 pushups, 100 bodyweight squats and then punch a monkey. Why? Because I can.”

So, without further ado, I give you my personal mobility routine. Yes, I’m really giving this away for free.

Why? Can we keep it as simple as “I really like you”? Because that’s the truth.

The routine doesn’t take long and it makes a HUGE difference in how you feel and perform.

It also removes that “I gotta’ do something” urge 😉

By the way, read this quote that my friend Dan Ritchie just sent me…
