If you want to lift heavier weights more efficiently (and reduce the chance of inured), mobility training is a MUST. Incorporating mobility and flexibility exercise into your routine can help
prevent muscle tightness and improve over-all functional fitness.
Try this mobility routine as a warm-up, on rest days or even first thing in the morning.
