Mobility, mobility, mobility.
We hear about it all the time and we all need more mobility, right?
Mobility is very important and I'm even working on a new program right now to improve mobility (although it actually addresses much more than that).
But what about stability and how important is stability in strength and performance training? Is mobility more important or is it stability that really matters most?
First, let's get a clear definition of each. Both mobility and stability have to do with our joints and this is important to understand.
Mobility is such a common buzzword in the fitness industry today, but what exactly is it?
Before you read ahead, think about this - how do you define mobility?
And, how do you define good movement?
In this article, I'll provide some simple background information about movement and mobility so that you have a better understanding and can assess your own movement and mobility.
You do take rest days, right?
What do you do to speed your recovery?
Is an "off"day from your training a day when you don't do anything at all?
Or do you engage in low level activities to enhance recovery?
These are good questions to ask yourself.
A recovery day can be a day to take advantage of other activities that won't impair your training and may even help you to recover faster.
I recently had the honor to dive deeper and expand my own knowledge into movement and mobility at workshop here in South Florida.
The workshop was so important, I thought I'd put together a short summary and share it.
What you do with the information is up...
