Hip and Spine Focused Movement Drills

Rather than just give my clients static stretches, I try to focus on prescribing movement focused drills that will look to improve ones flexibility/mobility through movement patterns.  In the series below you will see a number of exercise drills prescribed 1.  Worlds Greatest 2.  Squat (heels raised) to legs straightened, back stretch, lunge with overhead dowel stick hold and over head squat.  The client has been asked to perform one of these movements each night for 5-10 minutes so that each one is undertaken 1* week.  When time allows (preferable 2-3* week) they will perform all movements in one block session (may be included as part of ones warm up for training or in isolation).
