Why are kids more flexible than adults? Flexibility is one of the most neglected domains of fitness. People often think in order to get stronger and faster that they have to lift heavier. That’s only partly true. Mobility is key to efficiency, strength and injury prevention. We’ve talked about it a lot lately, but I wanted to take a moment to elaborate on mobility. Kids were in the fetal position not too long ago inside their mother’s womb. They are forced to be flexible. Remember, your body will adapt to anything. The process of inflexibility happens over years of not being in the fetal position. However, you can reverse that process by working on mobility daily. Pick an area that needs to be addressed, show up 5 minutes early to class and make it a point to work it in before your warmup. Over the course of one week you’ll have targeted 4-5 areas that need improvement. Keep doing that and what happens? Your body starts adapting to the demands of being more mobile. It’s not rocket science. GET IN THE FETAL POSITION! – WW
