1. Promote strength and control in optimal positions to avoid ending up in sub optimal positions.
2. Build resilience and control in sub optimal positions to reduce risk of injury in those positions.
Many coaches will focus on just one of these methods, but our coaches at EPS utilize both methods to help you reduce injury risk, improve body mechanics, and feel great!
Krystal and Chris have helped me so much with my bench form. Who knew using your legs in bench would give you 2x the strength. Highly recommend mobility coaching and training through EPS Strength!
Omg I LOVED it. I felt wayyy more stable but also my ankles and supporting musculature were challenged so well. I felt so grounded. I may be hooked.
Been loving the mobility warmups!!! I noticed a huge difference in the two days I have used them!!! Can’t wait to keep going more with them!!!
Our Movement Analysis service is designed to look at specific exercises (e.g., barbell deadlift), while our Functional Movement Screen is a proactive analysis of functional movements to get a picture of your musculoskeletal and neuromuscular status (e.g., thoracic rotation active range of motion). We will also gather data on extra-training variables such as daily activity, daily postures, occupation, etc. in order to gain a better understanding of your movement quality.
Flexibility generally refers to muscle and is defined as the ability to rotate a joint through an unrestricted range of motion. For example: How far you’re able to reach past your toes in a sit and reach test. Mobility refers to muscle as well as passive structures, such as connective tissue, and is defined as the ability to achieve the unrestricted range of motion required for functional activities. An example in this case would be the squat depth you are able to achieve.
We do more than just give you stretches! Mobility is specifically defined as the ability to control your movement through a given range of motion. This service looks at your movement patterns and any limitations that are impacting your technique or strength.
Our goal is not just to make you more “flexible,” but to help you move properly through the range of motion you need.
This may consist of but is not limited to:
If you suspect you have an injury, go see a physical therapist or your primary care physician first! We are not able to provide injury rehabilitation services through mobility coaching. If during our initial consultation call we determine that you would benefit from further evaluation by a medical professional, we will recommend you seek treatment first.
General stretching or yoga can be great tools! We love to see it! Our mobility coaching is more focused on a specific goal, area, or movement, in contrast to more global approaches like yoga. We hope to help you individualize and streamline your warmups or mobility routine to be specific to your needs!
