Morning movement, whether your jam is a sweaty HIIT session or a centering yoga flow, has two major perks: waking you up physically and mentally. That’s why Ash Wilking, a boxing instructor based in New York, makes sure to carve out a few moments each morning for intentional, functional moves that both strengthen her body and help support mobility.
Got a full day of sitting at your desk ahead? Before you head out, try practicing two of Ash’s favorites: dead bug and bear plank. These simple yet powerful moves work your whole body, and they can even take on endless variations if you feel like firing it up.
