Are you coming back from an injury and not sure exactly where to start? Afraid to continue with your strengthening program because of limited mobility? Are you in a constant state of re-injuring and falling into the perpetual pain cycle?
Chances are, you are not on a correct regression pattern/ rehabilitation plan.
After an injury, we have a tendency to pick up where we left off before the injury only now with decreased mobility, leading to altered joint mechanics. With movement limitations, muscles that are meant to stabilize now unintentionally act as prime movers. This is referred to as over-compensation.
Mobility before strength is of the utmost importance. A highly functioning range of motion allows you to move more freely. In conjunction with the proper strength training plan this will increase your resistance to injury.
