MOBILITY OF THE 40+ YEAR OLD ATHLETE AND DANCER
Joint Motion + Flexibility + Circulation (Chi) + Nerve Transmission + Motor Control = MOBILITY
When it comes to the 3 P’s: Pain, Prevention and Performance, taking time to screen and treat your own MOBILITY dysfunctions, restrictions and “hot spots” can do wonders. [See the research below]:
If we’d take the time to discover the correct, individual “mobility dosage” (how often, how long, how intense, repetitive, length of rest time, and progression) , we’d probably see and feel the difference in our movement, activity level, recovery, moods, and temperament. We take the time with other aspects of our training–strength and conditioning, nutrition, and recovery. But far too often, we either rush our mobility work, focus on just one aspect of mobility (stretching), or perform the same routine without matching the body’s current needs.
Remember that mobility work is not just to make you feel better or looser after a workout, or to mark “stretching” quickly off your checklist. Mobility work is meant to correct a problem, increase your performance and help you to avoid injury. Let me repeat the equation above:
Is your equation imbalanced?
