A movement flow to help your mobility

Have fun and improve your mobility with this Movement Flow!  

At Catalyst, our mission is to empower people to live better lives through strength and movement. While making consistent weekly improvements on a pre-determined program is crucial to long-term success, it’s also important to introduce variety and unstructured play into your routine. Movement flows are a great way to do this. Try this flow, introduced to us by physical therapist Lee Scantalides, to get you moving in new ways and to keep your joints well-oiled. You can use this flow on your days off from strength training, as a morning “recharge,” or any time you can find 10 minutes to move your body. Follow along with the video of SPT Coach Fabian performing the movements (written instructions are found below).  As always, stay away from any positions and movements that cause pain. Performing this movement flow consistently will help you achieve quality mobility improvements. It's also a nice way to start the day with movement...almost as good as coffee!
