Marcia Jennings, Movement Biomechanics Hopeful, asks should I really do Full Range of Movement ALL the time? The simple answer is NO.
Are any movements in life really done through Full Ranges of Motions?
If so, what are they?
If not, what movements do we do then?
What to do about ROM?
ROM is like everything else we do – if you’re paying attention it’s easy to see what ROM you can be using. If you aren’t, well that’s a different story.
The whole point is basically asking yourself, “Do I really need Full ROM?” And if so, “Do I really need it in ALL my movements?”.
You see, there’s not many life movements that are composed of full range of motion, and even in gym movements that are done in Full ROM, some joints are still only doing partial ROM. Using speed as your guide you can better determine what’s range of motion is better for you that day.
Listen in as we dwelve into the Rabbit Hole of ROM, which was taught to me by Frankie Faires from the Biomech cert, and how that leads into other interesting topics on both Sport and Exercise.
