What is mobility? Is it the same as flexibility?
Mobility refers to our ability to move freely without stress on the body. Our flexibility is dependent on the range of motion of our muscles. The two are not the same, but are not mutually exclusive. Good mobility can assist your flexibility and vice versa.
Why is mobility important?
It’s important to be mobile at any age as the aging process can take its toll on the body. Mobility exercises help combat this process, while also optimizing your muscles and joint movements.
What are the main benefits?
Mobility training can improve the range of motion of our joints and muscles. It can assist in improving our posture and can alleviate 'everyday' aches and pains as well as improve our body awareness.
How fast will I see results?
In terms of results, this will initially be something you feel rather than see. You might feel a little less stiff after one or two sessions - but the key is to be consistent with your mobility training.
Over time you should see an increase in your range of motion and improvement in your performance in other activities.
Can mobility training be incorporated into my workout routine?
Mobility training can be used as part of your warm-up for your workout, or you can use it within your training in the form of active rest. The exercises can also be used to recover from other forms of training.
