Both situations are highly unfortunate and potentially dangerous.
And I want to be make it VERY clear just how important it is to have both an adequate amount of mobility and stability before you embark on an exercise program. As Gray Cook would say, never should you just pile fitness on top of dysfunction.
Remember, proper movement should absolutely be a requisite for exercise. If you can’t move properly, what on earth makes you think that you will ever be able to exercise properly? Certain joints need more stability and certain joints need more mobility.
Of course, no one is perfect, and learning to move better is an ever-ongoing process. That is exactly why we have our SuperHero Development Program, which, along with all of the other great content that we provide through that program every month, we are now offering monthly mobility routines designed to help you improve your movement, which in turn will inevitably amplify your athletic potential.
This manual is to serve as a starting point and is a reference guide of my personal seven favorite mobility drills that I use on a daily basis. This is by no means an all inclusive list, just a quick compilation of what I believe to be some of the more effective mobility assessment and improvement drills.
Please read through the manual and add your own favorite mobility drills and routines in the comments section below. We would love to hear what has worked well for you!
Also, we are giving this report away for free as a huge thank you to everyone that takes the time out of their day to visit the Chronicles of Strength. But you only got a week to access it before it disappears into the dark nebulous void of forgotten eBooks forever!
SuperHero Sneak Peak!
Mid-Air Snatch Transfers
This complex not only looks pretty slick (You'll be the center of attention and steal the if you can pull this off at your grandmother's next birthday party. Ask me how I know!), but serves as a fancy little drill to help smooth out your kettlebell snatch. If you've been in the game for a while know then you know the kettlebell snatch involves proper power and proper timing. For a lot of folks, the timing is more of an issue than the power generation. "When do you get your hand through the bell (spear through) so it doesn't beat the piss out of your forearms?" This drill will teach you exactly when that point of "weighlessness" is. For most, it is just above eye level. Enjoy, and post any questions you have below.
BTW the dude doing this complex is clearly confused, and probably about more than just the complex...
