A lot of times when we lift weights our joints move in fixed positions.
Straight up and down!
Take the squat, bench and deadlift as an example.
You’re squatting down, pressing up, and/or folding over to pick up weights.
It’s easy to find yourself sore or tight from doing these movements the next day.
