Mobility, mobility, mobility.
We hear about it all the time and we all need more mobility, right?
Mobility is very important and I'm even working on a new program right now to improve mobility (although it actually addresses much more than that).
But what about stability and how important is stability in strength and performance training? Is mobility more important or is it stability that really matters most?
First, let's get a clear definition of each. Both mobility and stability have to do with our joints and this is important to understand.
I don't know about you, but when I think about training I think about being a high performer over a long period of time.
Take a minute to think about what I just said - being a high performer over a long period.
Isn't that the real goal of what we should be training for?
For me, this is a radical shift in thinking over the years when I look at my training.
A high performer is anyone that performs at high level in everyday life. It's anyone that operates closer to their physical potential on a consistent basis.
What does it take to be successful in your training? What does it take to get the absolute best results from a program or training regimen?
I've thought a lot about these questions and have also been fortunate to have had countless discussions with world-class authorities and experts all over the world in the fitness industry.
To be highly successful in health, fitness, and athletics, I think it comes down to the 8 Pillars of High Performance.
What's important to know is that when you have all of these pillars working for you - you can become unstoppable.
