Mobility Work: You’re Doing It Wrong (and Too Long)

The Benefits of Mobility Work:

Mobility is one of the most essential aspects of life. Without it, there would be no reason to live. A person’s health depends on their ability to move freely throughout their body. When a person cannot move freely, they are at risk for many ailments such as back pain, arthritis, osteoporosis and other chronic conditions.

A healthy lifestyle is necessary for moving freely throughout your body. If you have any kind of chronic condition, then it will affect your movement.

A healthy lifestyle includes regular exercise which involves movements that involve all parts of the body. These movements include walking, running, lifting weights and other types of exercises. Regular physical activity helps prevent diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. Physical activity is also beneficial for maintaining good posture which improves your overall appearance and makes you feel better about yourself.

Regular physical activity is also helpful for reducing stress levels and improving mood. Stress affects how well you perform certain tasks and how well you perform them. Physical activity helps reduce stress levels which reduces your performance and increases your workload. Exercise is also beneficial for lowering blood pressure, cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels, weight loss, sleep quality and more.

With all these benefits, it’s hard to find an excuse not to exercise.

Stretching and warming up should always come before doing any kind of physical activity. Stretching prepares your muscles for the activity and warms them up so that they are ready to perform the activity. Stretching and warming up after physical activity is also important to help your muscles recover. When your muscles are properly warmed up, they recover faster from a workout or exercise.

Mobility Workout:

A proper mobility routine is an excellent way to improve your flexibility, reduce pain and prevent injury. Stretching is the most important part of a mobility routine since it affects the rest of your exercises. Warming up your muscles before performing stretches helps relax them and improves your range of motion.

Stretching requires you to hold a stretched position for at least 30 seconds. This will allow your muscle fibers time to elongate.
