The Best Massage Tool for Mobility Gains? Ekrin Athletics Review (+20% Discount)

Ekrin Athletic B37 Massage Device Review Square

I’ve been on the search of a good massage device for a little while now, and in a twist of fate, a company called Ekrin Athletics reached out to me recently – hence this Ekrin B37 review. Soft tissue work is an important piece of the puzzle when it comes to performing well and recovering from training.  I’m a big fan of making said soft tissue work as passive as possible. In my experience, the more relaxed you can be when treating any hotspots or freeing up tight areas, the better response you’re going to get.  That’s why this in […]

Follow Along Thoracic Mobility Routine

thoracic mobility routine

The thoracic spine is an area that commonly tends to stiffen up as a result of modern day habits like sitting and swiping away on various apps. So in today’s video, we’re going to go through a simple, follow along thoracic mobility routine. We go through some basic flexion and extension, thoracic rotation, side bending and coiling.  We’re testing out a slightly different format for this video – it was more enjoyable for us to put together and I think the end result is higher quality, but I’d be interested to hear how you guys find it!  Feel free to […]

Pre Run Warmup | 10 Minute Running Warm Up Routine

Pre Run Warmup

Today we’re going to look at a simple pre running warm up routine to help prep the body and mind for a successful outing – at the track, on the trails, or wherever your next adventure takes you. The running experience can often go one of two ways: For some, it’s a painful death-march that can’t be over soon enough. For others, it’s a blissful form of moving meditation.  While I can’t promise enlightenment on your next 5k, one thing that I’ve found helps sway the balance towards the latter is a great pre run warm up routine. Instead of […]

10 Minute Kettlebell Mobility Flow (Full Body)

Kettlebell Mobility Routine

Weighted stretching is one of my favourite ways to open things up, and arguably one of the most effective for creating lasting changes with your mobility and joint function. So today I’ve put together a short kettlebell mobility flow. It look a bit like yoga, but with added resistance in the form of a bell (or whatever else you have lying around at the moment).  There are a few benefits to this: The added weight can help guide you a little deeper than you would normally be able to with some positions. Holding a weight means you have to have […]
