Mad Mobility | Protect you from yourself.


It’s essential to build the tolerance in the areas of motion you need. You must be able to tolerate the positions you’d like to be in, and the ones you end up in on that road to greatness. Sure enough, that road is littered with trial and error, and the occasional mistake. 
 
There are plenty of articles out there that drive the concept of our bodies being wired for survival. It’s often looking for a way out. Or another way to accomplish a task. Sure enough, when something is hard, it biologically wants to bail. But when we stick to the grind, we can yield great resilience to the stress. 
 
My training, and the fundamentals that drive the mobility class, build considerable resilience in those areas needing more tolerance. 
 
You need to have the strength and endurance to maintain a “good” position. All positions are relative to what we’re trying to do. So when you are performing a movement, there is usually a way you should be doing it. It is designed to work a particular set of musculature or drive adaptation in a particular direction. So when your joints are better at tolerating those positions, they’re much more consistently trained. 
 
You need to have the strength and endurance to maintain a “bad” or unintended position. Again, all positions are relative to what we’re trying to do. Sometimes you intend to squat one way and it doesn’t work out that way. You need the resilience to resist injury. So when your joints are better at tolerating those positions, they’re much more resilient to mistakes. 
 
Prepare your body for what you want to happen, and what you didn’t plan on happening. 
 
There are really no “bad” positions. Just the ones you weren’t prepared for, and the ones that weren’t intended.
