Mobility Matters

In the current fitness/training exercise-osphere, there is much lip service given to the bastard fitness components of mobility and flexibility. And, in spite of how much talk there is about "stretching" and "yoga", ask yourself; "Am I serious about my flexibility?"

Chances are you are not alone if you answered by saying, "yes, I can stretch more."

But let's put the dirty chore in terms to which you can relate. I'm talking about performance. Hot, dirty, nasty performance. Wanna be faster, lift more, be more explosive? Of course you do. Taking your mobility and flexibility a little more seriously will get you there.

Take Whiskey here: She is able to generate more force with less effort because of her ability to maintain this difficult, flaw exposing position.
