We like to introduce it at the end of the session after main Phase of Strength or Conditioning.
Promote these drills with controlled tempo. Pay extra attention near your end of range of motion for specific pattern.
Perform 2-3 sets of 5-12 repetitions of each drill. At the last rep spend more time at the bottom position for the particular drill. 10-15 sec will do the trick:)
You will find drills for your lower extremities and back, shoulders and T-spine.
Use single light kettlebell for loaded mobility drills.
Pay attention to your own Range Of Motion (ROM) and getting feedback from your body when you proceed with those drills.
Use slight to mild level of discomfort as your guidance and don’t allow any sharp pain symptoms to occur.
