Mobility Class: Oct/ Nov Program
Quick update, the mobility class on Tuesdays 6:30pm has been moved over to arch 325 (spin studio) where it is warmer and there is more space. For the new joiners, this is a class focused on helping our bodies move and feel better (through mobilising, stretching & strength training) so that we can show some love to our body as we continue to thrive in and out of the gym environment.
Below you can find the itinerary for the rest of October and November in regards to what will be covered each week in the mobility class.
Have a particular niggle, tightness or pain that hasn’t been going away? And you want to figure out what can be done about it? Feel free to get in touch on how i can help with assessments / treatments or If you have any questions drop me an email on: [email protected]
Wk 3 (OCT 19th): lower body, this will be a hip rotation class. This is a big one when it comes to overall hip/ pelvis/ lower back health and mobility. The work we do here will have a positive influence with big movements such as squats, deadlifts and lunges.
Wk 4 (OCT 26th): Spine focused class. Here we will work on improving spinal segmentation, the ability to improve the way 24 joints of the spine move independently to provide overall movement freedom, strength & control.
Wk 1 (NOV 2nd): upper body, here the intent will be to improve how well our arms can reach behind us (shoulder extension). This will help improve the range of motion and ability to perform big movements such as the dip & bench press with more ease, control and strength.
Wk 2 (NOV 9th): full body class, shoulder internal rotation (fundamental movement that helps with how well the shoulder moves & feels overall), Hip external rotation, the big glute muscles that contribute to many lower body movements found in our other classes.
Wk 3 (NOV 16th): Squatpocalypse, improve the squat without stretching. This particular class will focus on hip flexion (think hip flexors) but rather than stretch them we are going to train them in the shortened position (what mimics a deep squat). The bulk of this class will consist of a lot of high effort sets and little rest, so expect to be worked hard in this one.
Wk 4 (NOV 23rd): Improve the overhead position for the Snatch and Jerk. In this class I am going to share my favorite go to exercises when it comes to prepping the upper body for Olympic weightlifting. This will be a combination of neck, spine, shoulder blades and arms. This will be a good opportunity for you to assess how much the upper body may be limiting your Olympic lifts.
Wk 5 (NOV 20th): Spine focused class. Here we will work on improving spinal segmentation, the ability to improve the way 24 joints of the spine move independently to provide overall movement freedom, strength & control.
