1. Stability First, Flexibility Second!

Mobility training with Dan, you won't get away with a weak core for long!

Developing core strength is often overlooked in mobility work, but for safe and effective training it is fundamental. Plus, a stronger core never goes amiss on the rock.

Here are the first levels (1-5) of a core progression Dan works from, starting simple can often be fairly challenging for a lot of people.

2. 60% Effort, 40% Chill!

When we stop 'pushing' into stretches, mobility tends to come easily and feel 'comfortable', we do need to put some effort in though.

To help you explore 60% Effort, 40% Chill here's a 12 minute follow along video.

The exercises practiced are simplified PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) stretch's which make use of the principle of reciprocal inhibition; when one muscle group contracts, the opposite muscle group relaxes.

3. Quality over Quantity

Dan guides you to find effective and time-efficient exercises, taking into account your daily lifestyle, climbing training and body type.

Watch these 2 short videos to learn how mobility training can be inserted in 'bitesize chunks' around your climbing and how to gauge the right intensity in mobility exercises.
