At the Movement Assessment Technologies we encounter people all the time who are working on their FLEXIBILITY without enhancing their MOBILITY.
FLEXIBILITY: To bend without breaking - passive concept.
MOBILITY: The ability to move or be moved freely and easily - active concept.
We should hope that we never get close to our true potential for FLEXIBILITY as this is often where injury occurs and is often limited by our potential for MOBILITY. So are all those hamstrings stretches really enhancing your MOBILITY?
Potential for MOBILITY requires the development of movement CAPACITY (strength, power, stamina etc) COMPETENCY (movement skill and efficiency) VARIABILITY (tolerance for different angles, speeds, distances), all things we teach as part of the Movement Assessment Technologies Functional Treatment + Training course.
