Just done 20minutes of stretching, mobility work, rolling and lacrosse ball work. I did home Graston therapy on my forearm before starting this and am now sat with the heat pad on my arm again. I don't normally log this stuff but I do some or all of this every night. If I don't do this I feel like crap and can't train properly either. This also cuts down my warm-up time at the start of the session by 50%.
Anyone who is serious about strength training needs to be doing this kind of stuff. If you're not injured I bet you have an area where you're lacking mobility or could just benefit from soft tissue work to improve recovery. I have experimented with various protocols but I seem to always come back to the core:
- Rolling on PVC pipe, mostly for upper body.
- Lat stretching.
- Hip mobility stretching.
Find what works for you. Use MobilityWOD.com, google Mike Robertson's stuff, EliteFTS.com has some solid articles on there and YouTube has loads especially from Kelly Starrett (search MobilityWOD and whatever your problem is). Hell you can even ask me, I've tweaked a fair few things over the years but trust me: if you do this regularly it WILL benefit you.
