Let’s talk mobility basics.

What exactly is mobility, why is it important to us, and what are the underlying principles that inform a useful, effective mobility practice?

In today’s video, we’re gonna explore all of the above, including six ideas that played an instrumental role in the early stages of my own mobility journey (and continue to today).

They come from both my own experiences and the countless mentors and sources of wisdom I’ve been fortunate to discover over the years – including Kelly Starrett at MobilityWOD, Eric Cressey, Andreo Spina and many more. Standing on the shoulders of giants. 

The six key mobility basics include:

  1. Body Awareness – Forming a relationship with your body and discovering areas that need a little TLC.
  2. Interconnection – Realising that everything is connected and that the issue in your knee could well be due to those tight hips!
  3. Specificity – Being specific in your approach when addressing mobility restrictions or positions. Single-tasking.
  4. Positioning – Mobilising in a stable, healthy position to reinforce good movement patterns.
  5. Duration/Frequency – Finding the sweet spot that works for you. For me, that means 10-20 mins a day, and a few longer sessions per week.
  6. Measurability – Testing before and after, as well as creating lasting results between sessions.

Whether we’re dealing with a posterior pelvic tilt or we’re looking to improve a specific skill:

When we have these six principles in place, it’s going to be easier to make improvements and adopt a more stable position as we move forward with our mobility work.

I hope these ideas serve you well.
