Including mobility and stretching exercises in your fitness routine can benefit your body and overall well-being. Mobility as a movement modality refers to improving and maintaining the body’s ability to move through a full range of motion with control and without restrictions or pain. It involves specific exercises and techniques to enhance joint mobility, flexibility, stability, and overall movement quality.
Mobility fitness is essential for individuals of all fitness levels and ages. It helps to optimize physical performance, prevent injuries, and improve functional movement patterns in various activities and sports. Whether you are an athlete, a fitness enthusiast, or someone looking to enhance everyday movements, mobility training can benefit you.
In addition to reducing the risk of injury during exercise, mobility and stretching can increase blood flow, and reduce muscle soreness and stiffness. Making it a routine can also help to reduce stress and tension, leading to a greater sense of relaxation and calm.
