After reading that title, the only answer you should be saying to yourself is yes. That should just be a natural response, so why aren’t you doing it?
When are the proper times to do mobility?
The answer is whenever you have the time. It should be after class, before class, after your shower, before your shower, watching tv, sleeping. There is always a time to get in your stretching, so there should be no excuse at all to not do it. Pick a time of the day where you can get in a solid 15 to 20 minutes to work on it. I personally do it before I go to bed because it helps calm me down and helps me sleep better. I also wake up the next day feeling like a badass…depending on how many squats I did the day before.
You know you should be doing your mobility, so do yourself a favor and get it in. Your body will thank you later for it. Remember that we offer yoga and mobility classes to go with what you do in the gym. If you don’t have time for the classes, you sure as hell have time some other part of the day to get in 15 minutes. So think about it!
