Yep I said it

 

And im not going mad

 

I know we have specific mobility programs we used to sell, but don’t call me a hypocrite just yet

 

Hear me out….

 

You have probably read our articles and seen our videos and have watched some of the mobility exercises we prescribe

 

But they can be a complete waste of time

 

I’ve been seeing programs given to players where they add mobility exercises in at the end

 

The same way for years the last thing in conditioning training used to be some abs (disguised as core- could write 10 articles on that one alone!)

 

And you still see that now

 

But there is a big issue with having mobility as a separate part of training

 

Doing it on its own just doesn’t stick long term

 

Don’t get it twisted here big lad

 

Mobility IS important

 

Of course it is

 

But mobility exercises on their own are normally doomed to failure

 

And how can you tell they have failed?

 

When you are doing the same drills as a year ago and your mobility hasn’t improved

 

If you hear players asking for longer to get their mobility done as well then you could be on the wrong path

 

It shouldn’t be an hour session

 

For our lads if there is any mobility type drills its accompanied with one of 2 things

 

Either some soft tissue work, or stability

 

And I break it down like this

 

If it’s the day after a game and you are playing a game then to pair it with soft tissue will help give that relief and recovery to get back out on the pitch

 

But during conditioning phases make sure its with stability

 

Without adequate stability no mobility will take and last

 

In fact if you are gonna train one of them I’d always go for stability

 

We have seen great gains in mobility from getting players more stable

 

Way better than pushing and pulling on an already overworked joint

 

If you need more help and guidance, then join us in the Inner Circle
