Today, we are talking about mobility and its importance! Mobility, in the simplest explanation, is the ability to move your joints through full range of motion.
Having good mobility means you can:
- Get on the ground to play with your kids
- Move heavy furniture or luggage
- Reach above your head to put dishes away in a tall cabinet
You can do all this without restriction! Good mobility is crucial to functioning optimally in your every day life.

To combat this, here is an awesome (and quick!) mobility routine that you can do before a workout, during a lunch break, or after a long car ride.
