Improve your mobility: Legs! (video)
Mobility training is something that everyone should be doing! By improving your mobility, you also improve your posture, exercise technique and prevent shoulder and back pain. Do these exercises dynamically, always 1-2 minutes per exercise, and of course for both sides. Remember to breath deep and move slowly with your breathing.
Mobility exercises for legs Exercise 1. Start on all fours position, step your leg next to your hand. Lower your hip and open your chest.
Exercise 2. The same as before, but raise your arm and look up into your fingers

Depending on how much time you have, you can spend 10-30 minutes in total for doing these exercises. Try to do them at least 3 times a week.
