⚽️ World Cup Warm Up ⚽️

The U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team is in the FIFA World Cup for the first time in 8 years! To celebrate, we’ve got a proper warm up for you! ⚽️

A crucial part of any training session or game is to have a proper warm up, a DYNAMIC WARM UP! A dynamic warm up is moving while you stretch and includes repetitive movements through a joint’s full range of motion. The goal is to increase blood flow, prepare the joints and muscles for movement, improve functional mobility in joints, reduce the risk of injury, and help improve overall performance.

Conducting a dynamic warm up will help jump-start the cardiovascular system to appropriate levels for performance. It also gets the brain working to concentrate on body motion and increased mental readiness for the game or training session. Here are a couple lower extremity mobility movements to try in your next dynamic warm up to help decrease stiffness and improve performance. Cheers!

🔑 DNS for Runners 🔑

Today, Anna takes us through one of her favorite Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization movements for runners. 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏽🏃🏾‍♂️

This movement builds stabilization through the foot and hips while also strengthening the soleus muscle, which is key for not only running, but standing posture as well. If it weren’t for the soleus muscle’s constant pull, your body would fall forward!

Give this one a try to improve your neuromuscular stability and let us know what you think. Questions? Leave them in the comments below 👇
