    I'm really inflexible after taking time out for an injury, especially my hips, pecs (probably p.minor more than p.major) and ankles (although I need to be careful as I still can't load my left foot 100%).

    I've got bands, lacrosse balls and a foam roller at my disposal. I'll be following the mobilityWoD eventually but what can I do to 'catch up' so to speak. I've got almost two weeks til I'll be back in the gym and would like to be able to squat without being a tight as ****. Got **** all to do at home so can devote about an hour a day for mobility.

    Edit: I'm looking for more of a routine I can follow, obviously I'll be foam rolling everything and using the lacrosse balls for trigger points.

    For hips I recommend having a look at frog, lizard and butterfly yoga positions. Do 2 mins a leg in each position and increase the burn periodically (I do every 15 -20 secs... then go all out for the last 10 secs..)

    I also sit with my legs pointing out at 45 degrees to one another and reach for my toes as far as I can for 2 mins each side

    For glutes I do pigeon pose and seated glute stretch for 2 mins again each side, increasing the burn.

    Then shoulder pullaparts and dislocates

    Hope this helps mate
