BASIC GUIDE TO MOBILITY
Mobility is not a new concept when it comes to movement, however, it is a new fad word that has been humming in the fitness world that we're hoping sticks! At Thrive Method Training, we believe in using mobility as a precursor to move through life in a healthy manner. A mobility program allows you to see if there are restrictions within your joints or spine and address them before you get into a weight bearing program or simply go about your day!
WHAT IS MOBILITY?
It is our ability to move each joint through its true end range of motion (ex. the ability to bring your arm overhead-shoulder extension without pain/restriction) Creating your true end range of motion will allow you to LIVE comfortably within your you own body.
SO! Are you asking the question of where to start?! We got you! Start with a daily check in with each joint - this will be your first step toward relieving pain & discomfort and becoming a more efficient mover:
ANKLES - dorsiflexion/plantar flexion, Circles or ABC's
KNEES - Flexion/Extension, Circles
HIPS - internal/external rotation, flexion/extension
SPINE - Extension/Flexion/Rotation
SHOULDER - internal/external rotation, flexion/extension
The way we see it is we are all given one body and individually we have to live in it every damn day, how we take care of it is reflected back into the world.
