Raise your hand if you've been personally victimized by having a tight back?
Everyone? Yeah, I think we've all been there to some extent, whether it's constant, intermittent, or infrequent.
You can thank the combination of working 8 hours per day and elevated stress for that one (amongst many other reasons, of course). Unfortunately, 1 hour of exercise and a quick mobility drill won't correct years of tightness, but you can absolutely progress in a positive direction if you work at it consistently.
Aside from the exercises shown in the video, you can increase mobility over time by seeking assistance in the following areas:
- daily movement
- massage therapy
- physical therapy
- chiropractic care
- sleeping on a quality mattress
- managing and/or minimizing stress
