Episode 191: Improve Your Recovery with Aku

By | Podcast | No Comments

In this episode Mo chats with Paul De Jersey, the co-owner of Aku. Aku, short for Acupressure, is a company that has produced a mat that you can lay or stand on, along with a ball for smaller areas like shoulders and arms. The mat and ball are made from specific metals designed to increase circulation, release tight areas, decrease pain, speed recovery from hard workouts, and sleep better.

This is a GREAT tool for any athlete wanting to perform at their best, improve recovery, and reduce stiffness and injury risk. We had an awesome conversation and we are excited to share it with you.

Movement: Single Leg Hip Extension

By | Movements | No Comments

Use this move to work balance and symmetry for your hips & lower body.

We recommend using body weight only as part of a dynamic warm-up with 2-3 sets of 5-6 reps. For strength/balance add weight and perform 3-4 sets of 5-8 reps.

Bonus if you can do this barefoot to engage foot proprioception.
