Monday Mobility: Playful Flow


It’s Monday so it’s another instalment of Monday Mobility.

This one though is less of a “How To” and more of a “this is what’s possible”

Mobility is about freedom of motion, the ability to move freely in any number of ways., to move without restriction.
It’s being able to use your strength to move yourself, not just bar or kettlebell, but you.

While many of my posts are addressing specific issues, certain patterns and injury problems. But the ultimate demonstration of mobility is playful movement, exploring your immediate environment with your body much in the way kids do. It’s movement for movements sake, it’s fun, flowing and the anti thesis of the po faced, competitive gym environment.

This video clip shows an American mate of mine, Asylum Fitness owner and fellow My Mad Methods writer Mark Smith showing exactly what I’m talking about:

Now, you may think Mark’s been at this his whole life, but in a recent conversation he told me how he only discovered real movement a few years ago and said that while he had strength, he couldn’t move. So this shows what’s possible with gradual, consistent practice.
