Understanding Mobility Vs Stability Exercises: Fundamentals of Movement Quality

Mobility and stability exercises are fundamental components of the human body,. We can access Mobility and Stability by performing seven basic tests that score from zero to three, with a total score of 21 being the best possible outcome.

Mobility Exercises are focused on joint range of motion, tissue length, and muscle flexibility. These exercises demonstrate the basic mobility required within each moving segment of a specific movement pattern. The mobility category includes any form of stretching or joint mobility work within the movement pattern. Exercises in this category need to explore and eventually demonstrate all the available mobility required for that pattern.

Stability/Motor Control exercises are focused on basic sequencing of movement. These exercises target postural control of starting and ending positions within each movement pattern. The stability category includes any form of postural control work, with a particular focus on starting and end-range postural control. These exercises need to demonstrate appropriate postural control without verbal coaching or visual cues.

Incorporating mobility and stability exercises into a functional training program can help improve movement patterns, reduce pain, and enhance functional training outcomes. These exercises should be performed with proper form, gradually progressing intensity, and consistently.

Examples of Stability exercises include unilateral movements, such as single-leg deadlifts, Bulgarian split squats, walking lunges, and step-ups. These exercises challenge the body's ability to maintain its position and control its movement, which can help improve balance, coordination, and overall functional movement.

Mobility Vs Stability Exercises

Mobility Vs Stability Exercises

Examples of Mobility exercises include foam rolling, stretching, joint mobilization techniques, isometric holds, activation drills, stabilization exercises, dynamic movements, corrective patterns, and integration exercises. These exercises can help improve joint range of motion, tissue length, and muscle flexibility, which can help improve overall movement quality and efficiency.

Mobility Vs Stability Exercises

Incorporating corrective exercises into your functional training program can help address movement pattern deficiencies, improve mobility, stability, and strength, and prevent injuries. It is important to perform these exercises in a specific order, starting with mobility exercises and gradually progressing to stability and movement pattern retraining exercises.
