View Full Version : Mobility Work

Who here includes mobility stuff in their training regime?

After visiting Chip Tallman's gym and having them practically fold me in half on the bench, I've decided I could use some extra flexibility haha. Plus I have a hard time getting much lower then parallel without letting my hips sort of "swing under".

Chip showed us a few exercises for improving our arch. Along with those I'm thinking of doing squats/gms with an empty bar working on slowly getting a full ROM, and the stuff on Magnificent Mobility.

What kind of stuff do you do (if any haha)?

foam rolling helps a ton for back mobility

For benching I just have just gradually forced myself to arch more and more. I do dislocations regularly outside the gym so I can get my shoulders narrow enough to squat in our racks.

I foam roll and do dynamic warmups (hips and shoulders).

I'm young and skinny, which basically means I don't have to do hardly any XD

I foam roll occasionally and do your basic static stretching for my hip flexors and hamstrings. I'll do some leg swings to loosen up my hips before I squat too.

Foam rolling, roll on a tennis ball, static stretching, light warm up sets with extra ROM. All of these do seem to help; but I don't do them nearly enough.
