Does Kelly ever classify movements as PRE vs POST workout in nature, other than when he talks about doing certain movements specifically before or after a workout in the daily rx? I would like to program movements that are better as a primer for a workout versus something that needs to be relegated for AFTER a workout… It would be great to have movements broken up into pre workout and post workout… Does anyone have any thoughts?
Generally speaking, banded distraction stuff that is working on joint capsules and whatnot is probably good to do before workouts. If you’re restricted in a necessary position, clear up that stuff ahead of time. Then, for warming up, just practice the movement.
Deep tissue/smashing work is completed after.
what is muscle lengthening stuff?
Probably not the best way to describe it. I’m thinking 10 minute squats, splits practice, olympic wall squats, (maybe) couch stretching. Contract-relax mobilizations. Putting your muscles into “new ranges” I would save for afterwards.
A number of videos do talk about only doing certain mobs/smashes after the workout. I think the one that sticks out most is the smashing of the QLs with a big ball, and to be done after workout.
