3 Great Exercises To Prime And Mobilize Your Hips, Knees, And Ankles

So I’m sure you’ve had those days where you walk into the weight room knowing it’s squat day and you feel tight as hell and realize that you need to work to mobilize your hips, knees, and ankles. After 8 hours of a stressful workday, a long commute in the car, and too much Netflix in the evening it’s easy to fall into the trap of getting that all too common hip, knee, and ankle immobility that can train wreck your squat day.

Dynamic Motion: The Keys To Moving Before Moving!

Dynamic Motion: The Keys To Moving Before Moving!

I always like using the analogy that the body is just like a car engine. Anybody familiar with cars understands that you’ve got to allow an engine to be broken in. If the engine has some miles on it then you need to allow it time to warm up after you fire it to ensure you can have an enjoyable trouble free ride.

Fluids have to warm up, hoses have to warm, and the oil itself needs to warm so it can become a bit less viscous and less like maple syrup. All of these factors play into the engine running better lubricated, smoother, faster, and without setbacks. Your body works in the exact same way.

Inhibition In Movement: A Crime Against Strength

Too many times I witness people¬†wanting to focus on developing strength and they immediately want to pile more and more weight onto the bar in an attempt to grow their strength. I mean this sounds like the logical response in an attempt to produce strength, right? Sure it is…and I’m not saying that it’s not, but there is a step that many leave out that goes between getting stronger and just piling on a truckload of weight.

Loss Of Mobility=Diminishing Health

Loss Of Mobility=Diminishing Health

The lesson for today is mobility. I’m always hammering out the importance of mobility to all of my students and through my social media outlets on a regular basis. This is something that has to be addressed not only in the athletic realm, but in society on a constant basis as well. It really is a simple concept. Move and try to move well, period. This trumps how much weight one can lift or how fast one can run although being able to move and to move well also goes hand in hand with lifting heavier and running faster. It all goes together just like Batman and Robin, or Kim Kardashian and The Enquirer. Either way mobility and performance just fit together.
