No matter how big or small your squat or deadlift is, you need to do this stretch from Men’s Health Fitness Director B.J. Gaddour. The shin box switch is designed to increase your hip rotation and unglue any tight areas in the joint’s capsule, which can increase your range of motion during lower-body lifts and protect your lower spine. Gaddour calls it one of the most important mobility drills for the lower body.
This comprehensive workout, which Jillian Michaels created for Health, trains the muscles in a way that will bust through even the most persistent plateau. Do it four times a week, paired with 20 minutes of high-intensity interval training, and watch your body be transformed. | Health.com
