BANDS

Joints can get tight if you spend prolonged periods of time in bad positions or rarely expressing a full range of motion through stretching and physical activity. If a joint gets tight, not only does it restrict movement, but it can stress other parts of the body when compensating. 

Mobility bands can be anchored to pull on a joint so that it creates space and allows greater movement to 'clear out' the tension in the joint whilst performing dynamic or static stretching in the surrounding muscles. 

 An example of a band being used to mobilise the shoulder joint by pulling the elbow backwards when overhead.

Bands come in various thicknesses and tensions. For mobility, you will be looking for a medium range level of tension.

Watch the videos of exercises carefully and aim to mimic the body position as accurately as possible. Use the following video to get an understanding of how to anchor the band to a pillar and grip onto it.
