Before you get into and begin to learn more about this program and subsequently begin actual day to day training plan to improve mobility, I’d like to share some of what I’ve learned in my more than 40 years as coach and athlete. I’ve made a lot of mistakes – my hope is to help you avoid them!
The first goal – to share HOW you should approach this training – and in fact, any of the other programs I have made available here on this site. Think of this as an overview of the optimal philosophy to guide you on this mobility (or movement) training path.
You might be wondering why I titled this first section, “Venturing into Vulnerability.”
Simply put, mobility training is very challenging. Nothing will be given to you in this course – you will earn every bit of your progress. And along the way, you’re going to feel vulnerable. And perhaps like you’re a complete beginner. Or that no matter how hard you try, you won’t improve the way you had hoped.
Those feelings are normal.
And remember, despite my greatest desire to have you see your “weaknesses” as areas of opportunity, you will occasionally and inevitably feel “weak.” And vulnerable. It’s normal.
Be willing to be vulnerable. Put your ego aside – strive not for “perfect,” but simply better.
Even the seemingly “small” improvements can add up to massive success. In the midst of our own Type-A desire to get stronger, go faster, and be better, we can easily forget that sometimes the BEST learning and results…
…come from exploration, experimentation, and joyful play.
