Mobility At Your Desk Part 5



 

 

The “Mobility at your Desk” series was created to help people stay mobile when they are at work.  In this 10 week tutorial we will take you through 10 parts of the body that will only take 10 minutes a day to mobilize!


WEEK 5/10:  HAMSTRING MOBILITY AT YOUR DESK

For this week’s mobility sesh, we are covering the hammy!  Being in a seated position causes your hamstring to become shortened and tight.  Try this hamstring release to loosen up fast! We suggest beginning with the Level 1 Acumobility Ball and advancing to the Level 2 Acumobility Ball when ready!


WHAT YOU NEED:  2 Acumobility Balls


INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Single Ball:  While sitting up tall in your seat, put the Acumobility Ball under a hamstring.  Apply downward pressure on your quad with your hands.  Then flex and extend your leg.

  1. Double Ball as a Vise:  Same as the above, this time using 2 balls to create a Vise where the hamstring muscle sits between the balls.  Again move the leg through range of motion.  

MOBILITY TIME:  5 minutes- Forearm, Tricept, Neck, Foot, Hamstring


*Always consult a physician before beginning a new exercise, massage, mobility regimen.
