If you’re feeling a little tight and sore from the week, try this!
20 minutes rolling. Use a lacrosse ball, foam roller, tennis ball, or whatever you have available. Focus on areas that are tighter than normal, and try to keep your breathing normal. Spend 2-4 minutes per area, more if the discomfort is high. Rolling these tight and tired muscles out helps to increase blood flow, speed recovery, and increase mobility.
20-30 minutes stretching.
Start at your feet and work your way up. Spend 2-3 minutes on each stretch. Dedicate at least 5 minutes to sitting in the bottom of an air squat. To set this up, squat down facing the inside of a doorway or something else you can hang on to. In the bottom of the squat with your back straight, knees out, and hanging onto the doorway, press your elbows into the inside of each thigh. This will help you get your knees into the proper position while in the squat. Try to accumulate a total of 5 minutes in this position.
