Having freedom of movement within our training is highly beneficial not only for our bodies but also our minds.
By staying open and having freedom and looseness in our movements like that of a dancer we will begin to notice how this positively affects the way we think and feel.
When our joints are more free and open and our bodies move easier, our minds reflect this and vice versa.
If this sounds like something that you also want or need, here are some ways you can increase the freedom of movement in your training.
- Stretch Daily
- Loosening/mobilising exercises
- Bodyweight training
- Being adaptable in your training methods
- Lessen any force and increase softness in your training
- Adequate rest and recovery
These are some of the ways I have found to be helpful, and as with anything it is always a work in progress.
Below is a short video I created of some loosening exercises you can add to your warm up/cool down routine to help improve your freedom of movement.

Enjoy the journey, enjoy training 🙂💛🙏
