How Improving Your Mobility Can Help You Get Stronger

There’s No Secret To Getting Stronger, But Focusing On Your Mobility Can Give You A Leg Up. 

In a fitness world obsessed with lifting more weight, showing more abs, and building bigger biceps, a lot of workout enthusiasts forget about—or ignore—the un-sexy parts of fitness. I mean, who wants to post about their nine hours of sleep or gallon of water a day? Meh, I think most of us would rather post our new squat personal records.

You should know, however, you won’t have a celebratory squat PR video to post without good technique. And without good mobility, you won’t have good technique.

That’s right: Today I’m here to talk to you about the importance of working on your mobility, with the help of my friends at Power Athlete. Fitness mastermind and 10-year NFL veteran John Welbourn founded Power Athlete to share goal-oriented fitness programs to keep people in shape for sports, combat, and everyday life.

John and Power Athlete’s resident physical therapist, Dr. Tim Cummings, PT, DPT, talked with me about mobility and how to improve it, and I’m here to share that information with you today.
