Like many of you, I have been a fitness enthusiast for most of my life. I started “pumping iron” in the garage with my dad at age 13. I embraced a bodybuilding approach to fitness for 20 years. My muscles got bigger and stronger without a doubt. What I did not realize at the time is that I was actually damaging my joints and reducing my range of motion. I was training body parts such as chest, biceps, triceps etc. through one plane of motion. I considered myself to be “fit”, but the fact is I was destroying my mobility. Without mobility, there is no movement and without movement, there is no performance. It doesn’t matter if you are playing in the Superbowl, or fighting fire. Movement is performance.
