Forget the static stretching before a training session or race – it merely isolates individual muscles and does little to prepare the body for intense activity.
In the latest issue of Dis-Chem’s Living Fit magazine, we reveal why mobility and foam rolling are better ways to mobilise your joints and address your body as an integrated system to reduce your injury risk and boost your performance.
This approach is beneficial because our more sedentary modern lifestyles lead to weak muscles and immobile joints, particularly in the areas essential to efficient, injury-free movement during exercise like your hips, knees, ankles and shoulders.
A proactive approach to mobility helps to restore and maintain natural movement and function to muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia and joints to reduce our injury risk and boost our performance.
The best way to achieve this is with a regular mobility and foam rolling regimen, along with an adequate pre-workout routine. Get your copy of the March-April issue of Living Fit at your nearest Dis-Chem Pharmacy for a complete guide.
