Why Should I Work on My Mobility and Flexibility?

Read the Chalkboard — I can’t make it any simpler than that. If you aren’t working on your mobility, you are leaving reps and pounds on the table. If you want to get: Stronger, Faster, Leaner, you need to focus on your technique and optimize your mobility. QED

Using Mobility, Corrective Exercises, and Range of Motion

To Improve Mobility & Range of Motion

  1. To mobilize stuck tissue we use flossing, joint distraction, gapping, and self-myofascial release.
  2. For Flexibility and stability: we use Yoga and FireFlow.
  3. Functional Range Conditioning and Kinstretch: techniques to help close the Active Passive Range Gap.
  4. Muscle activation and corrective exercises: we use isometric exercises and exercise bands to improve the mind-muscle connection.
  5. Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Stretching: to retrain the brain’s connection with muscle to improve the brain’s confidence and control over muscles with allows for improvement of flexibility.
  6. Partner Stretching: through using a coach to help stabilize and direct stretches, the athlete is able to improve the function of the stretch and focus on the intended muscle and joint group.

Passive Flexibility Range Defined: Relative ease and the degree to which you can move your bones with respect to one another with assistance based on the tightness of the related muscle groups.

Active Range Defined: Relative ease and the degree to which you can move your bones with respect to one another under your own power using only the related muscle groups.

Active Passive Range Gap: Passive Flexibility minus Active Range. The bigger the gap — the more prone to injuries you become.

Mobility Defined: the overall range of motion and control of that range of motion across broad areas of movements. So it’s how much overall flexibility you have and the degree to which you can control it.

We measure current mobility and static motor control through screening.  We improve the tightened areas through our mobility programming to mobilize and strengthen the tight and weakened areas.   We find and address all the elements that limit movement and performance including short and tight muscles, soft tissue restriction, joint capsule restriction, motor control problems, joint range of motion dysfunction, and neural dynamic limitation. In short, mobilization is a tool to globally address movement and performance problems.

Humans have tightness where the body senses weaknesses or lack of strength in a muscle. To improve mobility, we have to reprogram the brain’s connection with deactivated muscles. In essence, we force the brain to create new software (neural pathways to control muscles), so that the body can allocate new hardware (muscle tissue.)

  1. Now i know that Flexibility should be the first thing to do, right? so if then i was wondering why my friend recommended me to use his mobility bar. am i doing the wrong thing? i have started first on my mobility training not the flexibility one first? and i have researched some of the mobility bar out in the web and i’d like to ask any suggestions and recommendations from you, glad to hear it soon! thanks 🙂
