Often, when we think of exercise we think of cardiovascular or strength training. Very few of us stop to consider mobility as part of a well-rounded training routine.
Flexibility or mobility training is an important element you must include in your training, whether you’re a beginner or more advanced. And there are many reasons why!
Your flexibility/ mobility decreases with the typical modern western lifestyle, with prolonged sitting and prolonged use of technology being major contributors to decreased mobility. The sitting posture has a very negative effect on your body and ultimately results in a loss of mobility across multiple joints in the body.
Increasing your flexibility and mobility has many benefits for your body. Here's a few!
1. Improved posture
2. Greater joint range of motion and freedom of movement
3. Decreased risk of injury
There is a direct connection between improved mobility and flexibility and an improvement in performance. This improvement will relate to your strength and cardiovascular training, as well as day to day activity's.
Greater strength gains are also seen quickly as a result of better mobility. Strength training exercises that tend to give us the greatest benefit are large movements such as squats or deadlifts and these exercises cannot be undertaken without sufficient mobility.
