Being flexible and bendy is great, but having control of your full range of motion should be the ultimate goal!
Static stretching is a great way to improve someone’s mobility as it is found over the years that static stretching is not the best use of your time & it doesn’t translate well into functional movement.
Active mobility techniques like these improve range of motion while also gaining better muscular control of this new range!
This creates a neuromuscular response that allows our body to feel SAFE into greater ranges of motion and keeps ligamentous stress at bay.
