  • Range of Motion vs. Flexibility

    Range of Motion vs. Flexibility

    Everyone knows the words mobility and flexibility, they are buzz words in the fitness community.

Mobility is the ability of a joint to move actively through a range of motion. An example of this theory is people who claim to have tight hamstring and can’t touch their toes.

    Why Am I Sore? What Can I Do?

    On an everyday basis I ask various clients are they “sore”, usually I get a response of YES, with a grimace. I normally respond “great, cool or nice” and they all think “asshole” and laugh. In reality I am an “asshole” but not because of the soreness question. What many don’t realize is that being sore, as uncomfortable as it is, is a good thing. You crush your morning workout-running farther, lifting heavier or completing one extra round. But that sweet satisfaction can quickly turn to regret the next morning when you’re too sore to wash up or get dressed. But where does that come from and why does it always show up a ....
