It’s no secret that in any sport or activity (or life in general), mobility plays a role of the utmost importance. Just like it’s important to be flexible, as we noted in our article When Should I Stretch? How Should I Stretch?, it is as equally important (if not more important) to be mobile and agile. If you lack proper mobility, you are seriously prone to injuries and bad form. This is a BIG no-no! Poor mobility negates proper form, and poor form ups injury proneness – this is something that MUST be beaten into our heads!!!

You think you’ve been standing right this whole time, eh?
If you’re living in a modern society, then chances are your idea of good posture is not actually what good posture is, according to this interesting article from ScrawnyToBrawny.com. The author of the article, Nate Green, states:
Apparently, I’ve been standing wrong for 28 years.
Well, no, that’s not quite right. I’ve been standing wrong ever since I started working out (about 10 years ago) and learned that “good posture” was to keep your chest high and shoulders back.
Turns out that’s NOT good posture.
Chris told me so, the other day when I was working out at his gym. He said, “your chest is puffed up too much and your shoulders are too far back.”
I told him I didn’t even know that was a thing. That’s how I thought you were supposed to stand.
