Mobility can be defined as the combination of flexibility of your muscles and range of motion within your joints. Combined, when a muscle is flexible and your fascial tissues (surrounding each one of your muscles) are pliable your body moves optimally. When a muscle is too tight, or when the fascia surrounding your muscles is not moving well your joints become restricted and you lose the ability to move your body how it's meant to move! You are at risk for injuries, aches and pains, and limited functional capacity.
For example. If you allow your chest muscles to get tight over time, eventually your upper back will begin to round forward. The upper arm muscles will also shorten, potentially limiting your ability to completely straighten your arm. In class we would stretch
In my mobility class each week we pick a movement or muscle group and then spend the hour stretching, moving, and rolling the area to increase our range of motion and flexibility. You are guaranteed to add to your human anatomy knowledge, and pick up some tricks to do at home to prevent future aches, pains, and injuries.
