HOW IS THE PROGRAM SET OUT?
The program is split into 3 stages, with the first two stages being three weeks in duration and the 3rd stage being two weeks duration. Throughout the program there is a prescribed and structured regime of mobility exercises, which increase in difficulty at each stage. The program has between 8-9 mobility exercises per day, covering joint mobilisation stretches, trigger point ball release, foam roller work and muscle stretching. There are 16-17 exercises per stage to cover, but they are split into 2 sets. The first set in each week focuses mostly on the lumbar spine region and the second set on the SIJ, hip and neural tension. Each stage has a lot of work to cover as it is designed to get maximum results in 8 weeks, however you can choose to go more slowly through the program if needed.
