Want to learn more about mobility and be able to help improve the mobility of your clients?

Dean Somerset breaks down the science and practical application of mobility training.

Course Syllabus

  1. Scientific Applications of Mobility Training

    1. Biomechanics and Physiology of Mobility Training


      • Understand fundamental elements of biomechanics and how they relate to training in the gym
      • Define elements such as work, power, torque, lever length, force


      8 mins
      Unit 1
    2. Flexibility vs Mobility: Similarities, Differences, and What Each Mean To Training

      • Defining the two concepts and how they apply to training for mobility
      • How to train to improve both and when to focus on one more than the other
      • Alignment, contraption, and their effects on both flexibility and mobility
      33 mins
      Unit 2
    3. Assessing: Determining How Each Specific Limitation Influences Mobility

      • Determining structural limits to flexibility
      • Determining motor pattern dysfunctions in achieving active and passive ranges of motion when sufficient passive ranges exist
      • Determining the best course of action to see mobility improvements in the context of the individuals specific limitations
