Whole Body Joint Mobility Exercises
Unlike muscles, joints have no direct blood supply, so they rely on movement to keep them functioning properly
Why Is Joint Mobility Important?
Joints rely on synovial fluid to "wash" away waste products that build up and compromise the integrity of the joint.
A daily joint-mobility routine can keep your joints healthy and prevent stiffness and muscle imbalances. It can also help restore lost range of motion, making exercise more enjoyable, enhancing your athletic performance and protecting you from common aches and pains.
Additionally, joints that are able to move through their full range of motion allow connecting muscles to completely contract and expand, which gives muscles more strength and power and prevents injury
