Care and “feeding” of your joints and connective tissues doesn’t have to take a lot of time, and it pays off in your ability to handle the unexpected in everyday life (the heavier-than-usual grocery bags, the muddy—and slippery—playing field, the stairs you have to take when the elevator is out).
This workout is designed to create mobility in the joints and resiliency in the connective tissues—and takes less than 30 minutes to complete. It’s an excellent daily physical activity program because it is low-impact and benefits you in three big ways:
- Connective tissue resiliency from head to toe.
- Mobility in your feet, hips and spine.
- Decompression throughout your body.
Perform all the movements one at a time. Pay particular attention to the rest time indicated after each move. Rest is very important because it allows for the correct amount of time to be fully recovered before moving on to the next move. Do not attempt this program in a circuit format.
- Medicine ball (light)
- Plyo box or bench
