In so many modalities, fitness is considered musculoskeletal derived and not neurological derived. But really, the brain determines your body's next move.
Your performance depends on how and what your brain receives as input. Mobility is a fabulous way for your body to receive additional information.
Mobility is so much more than flexibility. Our joints get jammed and "forgotten" by the brain from everyday use. When we are able to move in ways outside our norm, our brain gets more information and in turn can map our bodies better.
More info to the brain = better mapping = better performance! You can actually lift more, run faster, and exercise "better" when you switch things up. 💛 ...
