Mobility issues start happening when your body demands it in a particular movement but dont have that specific range available for use. The amount of mobility you need is largely dependent on your activity and your goals. For example, powerlifters/bodybuilders arent going to need much mobility for their sport in comparison to maybe an olympic lifter. You can gain hip mobility for the squat simply by having a barbell on your back and sitting in a deep squat, sure—thats one of many ways. Could you still benefit it from it by doing mobility in general regardless as a powerlifter/bodybuilder? Absolutely!
However if you have other fitness goals outside of powerlifting/bodybuilding the likely hood of you needing them might start to be more necessary. Tightness becomes a weakness and your body is designed to be able to move in various planes of motion—if you want it to. You dont use it, you lose it and your body reprograms itself accordingly based on your activities and lifestyle. Your body is an incredibly smart machine and continues to adapt with your habits. 90/90 Hip Swivel
Shin Box: Push front shin into ground as you bring hips up
Front Elevated Lunge ISO: Adjust height of box
according to current mobility. Use 2 sticks or a a squat rack to help with your stability as you drive the front leg up. Actively drive for 5-10 seconds then lower down to new mobility range. Keep readjusting box as necessary. #strengthcoach #oaklandstrength #hipmobility #mobility
