Prior to any training, be it strength or aerobic conditioning, an athlete will be limited if their body is restricted in range of motion or lack of mobility. Mobility is the foundation of movement, power access, endurance and postural integrity. As athletes age the first thing we tend to loose is our mobility at the joint. When our body is freed from the “stickiness” of fascia tension or joint capsule restriction, we can access more power and ultimately more range in our ability for movement. Understand how to unlock and unleash your movement is critical for enjoyment and performance gains. As Gina says, mobility prevents us from leaking power hence leaking speed.
