Thanks Kaitlin, I think you’re right on.
My issue is that I’m coming from about 15 years of a pure sedentary lifestyle. I’m beginning to be active now with strength training and sports. Luckily I found all of the mobilitywod material to guide me. As a result, my body ends up screaming at me in so many different area’s for mobility work.
I know you’ve said many times in the past to stick with only a few mobility drills per day, but I’ve found that not only do I need to do more than that (as a result of so many inactive years combined with a huge increase in activity in the present) but like you said, I need to do some of those multiple times a day.
Essentially my body is asking for more mobility work than it can handle or “conform” to. Quality over quantity and patience seems to be the best bet I suppose.
Thanks for the feedback guys! I’ll keep working on the issue and focus on cutting down the number of drills I do per day and increase the frequency of those drills each day until I see permanent change before moving onto to new drills.
