You stretch and do mobility work everyday…why isn’t it “sticking.” It’s a never ending battle.
Have you tried appropriate strength training?
Strength training is the cement that makes those mobility patterns stick. It’s like hitting the “save document” button. Your body has to be strong and stable to own the motion.
1. Example for limited overhead shoulder range of motion. (Can’t lift overhead)
(Lat Foam Rolling shown. The lats internally rotate/roll in and pull the arms down to the sides)
2. Perform mobility/stretch. Helps “grease the groove” and facilitate the motion.
(90 90 T-Spine stretch with rotation shown)
3. Load in an appropriate range of motion. Gives the body strength and stability to keep the range of of motion
(Landmine press shown. A great shoulder strengthener when going directly overhead isn’t smooth and pain free)
