A closer look into different forms of mobility training: stretching, active flexibility, active tension, foam rolling and more. What is the best way to get mobile?
For athletic ability, health, injury prevention and long term success mobility is the number one. It's not stretching or strength, but both of them combined into what we call mobility.
Mobility simply means strength in the range of motion of a joint. When your muscle is functional in all articulations of the joint and strong in full range of motions, the muscle can be considered highly mobile.
When your entire body (all muscles of the body) is open and relatively strong, your body can be considered mobile and structurally balanced.
Mobility is the biggest indicator of athletic prowess and overall postural/muscular health. Your body simply works the way the nature made it to work and there are no stiffness or weakness limiting your movements and well-being.
