Welcome to this eight-week video series brought to you exclusively by Whole Life Challenge in partnership with MovNat. Each week, coach Danny Clark will teach you new movements designed to increase your mobility. These practices are optional and are simply one of the many ways you can accomplish your ten daily minutes of mobility.
In this series, we’re going to focus on ground-based movements that will build your mobility. By the end of eight weeks, you’ll have a whole repertoire of movements you can practice. And if you practice these movements regularly, they will also build body awareness, stability, strength, and awareness of your environment. Plus, you might just have some fun.
MovNat 10-Minute Mobility Practice: Week 5
We’re continuing our journey into natural movement. These ground-based movements will give you the foundation you need for higher level movements regardless of the sport of exercise curriculum you study. And often, the more we do the things we’re naturally designed to do, the faster we see improvements in our overall movement quality.
Now, for this week’s sequence:
- Start with abbreviated version of last week’s movements
- Deep squat — 5 breaths
- Deep squat with reaching — 5 breaths
- Deep squat to deep knee bend transition — 5 reps
- Deep knee bend with reaching — 5 breaths
- Finish with breathing in lying position — 10 breaths
If you are brand-new to any kind of movement practice, don’t worry – these movements are scalable to all fitness levels and body types and I’ll show you how to do that in each video. No matter what “shape” you’re in, you may be surprised at what is difficult and what comes easily. The important thing is to listen to your body and back off if something doesn’t feel right.
