KEYS TO LONG-TERM MOBILITY TRAINING. PART 2: LOAD.
Adaptations are earned. If we’re looking to create long-term change in the body, we need to load it.
Consider the duration and intensity of “mobility drills.” Is there enough of a stimulus to cause an adaptation, and for how long will this continue to occur? This changes with the individual, as someone who has been training for years may need a more significant dose than a beginner. At some point, both new and experienced people plateau. That’s just the body’s way of saying we’ve done all we can with this intensity—time to up the challenge.
Adding load could be as simple as adding weight. We could also increase the amount of time we’re under tension. I’ll add ankle weights to my hip rotations, change my setup to work with gravity differently or hold a position for longer. Take your time to establish the minimum effective dose and then layer more on top week after week.
Load it up. Adapt to more. Become more resilient.
