Mobility Class Rocklin CrossFit

 

Why is mobility important?

Mobility training can improve the range of motion of our joints and muscles. It can assist in improving our posture and positions. Mobility training can alleviate ‘everyday’ aches and pains as well as improve our body awareness. More controlled range of motion = better power output, better power output = improvement in fitness.

 

What is the difference between mobility and flexibility?

Flexibility refers to the ability of your soft tissue (muscles) to stretch. Mobility, on the other hand, is a term for the many elements that contribute to movement with range of motion, including restricted muscle tissue, joints, the joint capsules, and motor control.

A person with great mobility is able to perform functional movement patterns with little to no restrictions in the range of motion (ROM) of those movements. A flexible person may or may not have the core strength, balance, or coordination to perform the same functional movements as the person with great mobility.

 

What to expect

We will be going over basic conditions people tend to “just live with” such as, plantar fasciitis, knee pain, hip pain, low back pain, shoulder impingement, neck pain, tennis/golfers elbow, wrist pain…the whole shebang. We want you guys to have a basic understanding as to how your body works and how to improve to deal with these aches and ailments. Remember, we love you; we care about your health, as should you.

This week we will be focusing on the knee! So for those of you who seem to have stiff quads, patellar tendonitis, patellar tracking issues, knee pain with any sort of squatting motion, and chronic issues of the lower extremity… this one is for you! We will assess range of motion, improve it, and then assess the stability of those joints to help clean up the mechanics.
