Introducing #mobilitymonday from our friends @romwod! Click on the link in our bio for this week’s routine! . All our poses in February stretch muscle groups in the spine. This helps create better positioning for lifting and is the foundation for better mobility (active range of motion). The more flexible the muscles as well as stronger connective tissue, helps increase power output and helps achieve better overall body weight to strength ratio. The bound angle pose (pictured above @mattiecakesssss) is achieved with the feet together and close to groin. It stretches the groin and lower back muscles, while stressing the connective tissue surrounding the groin muscles which ultimately helps strengthen those tissues. Bound angle with feet further away from body stresses more outer hip and gluteal muscles as well as low back.
