I've written about this topic before (here, specifically). Working on mobility is something that often gets pushed to the end of the to-do list and I may be the biggest offender out there when it comes to avoiding an extended stretch session. Getting loose is less glamorous than throwing weight around in the gym but the two work in tandem to produce PRs during a workout. Everyone has some kind of range of motion shortcoming - maybe you're chained to a desk between the hours of 9 and 5 so your hips are tight, maybe a shoulder injury from high school football has made overhead squats difficult, it could be anything. The important thing is to chip away at these weaknesses and regain the mobility that we lost. We have regularly scheduled sessions that take place on the second Monday of every month (the next one is on September 9th) at 7:45 PM to work on opening up muscle groups and getting into better positions. If you're interested in seeing how mobilization can help your performance in the gym you should definitely take advantage of the information presented during these short classes!
