Activate and Attack! (1/5/2022)

The following is roughly an hour long workout that seeks to mobilize and activate tight and underactive muscles surrounding your knees, hips and shoulders. After about 25 minutes of mobility and stretching, there is 15-20 minutes of activation work with minibands. Once your muscles are fully activated, the workout concludes with 10-15 minutes of full body strength work that can be done either with body weight or a single dumbbell.
