Being mobile is a crucial aspect of being healthy. If a person is not able to move a joint freely through its full range of motion, then they are already putting themselves at an increased risk of injury before even attempting to pick up a weight and load that range of motion.

Mobility Drills are exercises that promote mobility by taking the muscles, tendons, and joints through the full range of motion with the intent to increase efficiency and quality of motion. Mobility exercises may also cause you to learn to adjust for balance or coordinate your movement with other muscle groups.

Mobility can be confused with flexibility, but the two are quite different. Mobility refers to having the ability to move a limb through an entire range of motion with full control and without pain. Flexibility refers to a muscle’s ability to lengthen.

Ask your trainer for mobility exercises!
