Prioritize mobility training
Anyone who says that mobility work does not matter – especially if they have passed a certain point in their life – are not thinking through. This is especially true when her days, including her job, are not what anyone would consider active.
Sitting a lot, poor posture, additional muscle mass, poor muscle recovery and possibly less conditioning all contribute to the fact that a body can no longer move as well as it used to. A daily routine of mobility work may feel superfluous, but it is worth gold.
Good mobility is actually a product of good strength on either side of a structural connection. The thing is, technically solid strength training depends on good mobility. One feeds on the other and neither can be left out.
In short, the argument “strength training creates mobility”
