Swole & Flexi Kettlebell Workout
I've said it before and I'll say it again... mobility training is just strength training at your end range. The more mobile you become, the more ranges of motion you can access and utilize, and the stronger and more ninja-like you become! Who doesn't want to be able to crush weights AND do the splits?!
If that's not motivation to add more mobility in your life, I don't know what is.
Today's workout requires two kettlebells and works on back, shoulder, hip, and hamstring mobility. Don't worry, just because it's a "mobility workout" doesn't mean you won't sweat and get sore! ;)
Perform as many rounds as you can (with good form) in 30 minutes*:
Straddle windmill 5 reps per side
Shoulder extension scapular retraction 10 reps
Cobra reach through 10 reps
Barn door 10 reps
Front split slide 10 reps (5 per side) - take this to YOUR end range of motion; no need to be able to do a full split
*The movements in the video below are sped up. Take your time when you're doing the workout - the movements are meant to be performed slowly, with control.
