Awwwww yeah!! This is the start of my new video series “Exercises to Boost Your Mojo.”
Why “Mojo”? It’s pretty much my family nickname because it sounds a lot like Muldrow. I stole this awesome article idea from a good friend (and Training Jedi), Tony Gentilcore, to post random exercises that people either should or probably don’t incorporate into their training program.
Introducing- The Yoga Complex Plus.
Where did I get it: I can’t quite remember where I saw this idea first- Diesel Crew’s “Flow” warm-up, or Tony Gentilcore’s “Yoga Plex.” As it seems, I have combined the two versions of this exercise with a bit of my own “Mojo.”
What does it do: Provide mobility, stability and flexibility in the hips and T-Spine, in the chest, hamstrings, glutes, calves, abdominals and shoulders. Pretty much the entire body! It’s a combination of a “Yoga Plex” with a reach; a down-ward dog and a cobra. Hold each position for no more than 3 seconds to get that feel good stretch.
Applications: These “moves like Jagger” is great for anytime of the day, anywhere you have space- I mostly use it in my programming for warm-ups or even as “fillers” in between worksets. Because it’s a multi-joint movement, it will certainly get your blood flowing and keep you loose through out your session. The more you do big movements like these the better you’ll move and feel!
Try this move out today for 1-2 sets for a warm up of 5-8 repetitions.
