Cooking Tip: Store fresh herbs as you would a bunch of flowers. Place in a vase on the bench. Replace the water daily and prune any dying leaves/strands. This will make your fresh herbs last 2-3 times longer then if left in the fridge. Plus it keeps them fresh for optimal taste!
Training Tip: Work one mobility peice a day until problem is fixed before working on another peice. We find that too many athletes over commit to mobility each day and build up a list of stretches and exercises they have to hit daily. This becomes incredibly overwhelming and at the end of the week they look back only to realise they haven't done a single piece of mobility for the whole week. Spend 2-5 minutes each day and you'll start to see results within weeks.
Recommendations: - Squatting; couch stretch or holding the base of a squat. both held for 2+minutes.
- Thoracic; Puppy dog pose or peanut in the thoracic to crack the back daily
- Shoulder; Barbell on traps or mashing traps with lacrosse ball on the wall
- Hamstring; Long straddle holds or mash with lacrosse ball whilst sitting on a box.
