A Complete Physical Mobility and Strength Workout: Try It

Each month, a new trainer takes us through the top four workouts in their back pocket. Follow us weekly for new ways to break a sweat. Look at all

If Flexibility is the great brunette cheerleader in the 2009 Taylor Swift music video, then the dynamism is undoubtedly the blonde band geek pinching from Bleachers. Mobility almost doesn’t get the attention and it deserves the respect it deserves, but in this week’s episode Mass Club Instructor, Form Fitness Brooklyn instructor Marit Summers is here to show you that mobility really belongs to your energy workout.

“Today we’re going to do a strength and mobility exercise to get your body moving and make your body feel really great and strong,” said Summers, who is at the top of the equipment-free class.

Quick Refresher: Flexibility refers to the ability of a given muscle to stretch, while mobility refers to how well a muscle can move within a joint. “Mobility is one of the most important aspects of both a successful training plan and staying fit over time,” yoga and mobility instructor Gabriel Marbitzer told Well + Good before.

Once you put on your yoga clothes and take off your mat, you will have a lot of movement to bring your hips, shoulders, knees and other joints together. Some highlights include Yummy 90-90 Stretch, Shoulder Flushing and Bird Dogs. In just 13-minutes, you will be complete and ready to enjoy a new feeling of freedom in your body.

Whether you’re using a summer fast-paced routine as a warm-up, cool-down, or workout, this workout will fly. And when he calls for the last mobility, you basically hold the “I love you” sign in your joints … just like Taylor Swift did to Lucas Till.

On that note, you’re ready to move.
