Modern Methods of Mobility demonstrates that with the deliberate mix of well thought out methods, exceptional flexibility and mobility are achievable for adults with all kinds of training backgrounds. M3 is an approach to building flexibility and resilience throughout the whole body, paying special attention to the correct application concerning the adult body.

It includes a system for increasing flexibility and mobility, as well as an in depth explanation of personal experiences in coaching students via these strategies. Over the last decade we have tested, filtered and selected the most powerful techniques from an extensive and diverse range of backgrounds and disciplines.

Main topics

The roles of the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous in flexibility development and how the techniques we choose will influence the types of tissue we work on.

Developing Full Range Strength – how to develop strength across the whole range of motion, including the end range strength in both the contracted and extended positions.

How to express your innate level of flexibility quickly. A lot of the time, people have a much greater range of motion than they think. By using certain drills and sequencing to educate the nervous system on how to express this range of motion, you can learn to teach your body how to pull into these ranges.

Understanding the role of fascial changing techniques such as ballistic stretching and the “creep” effect and when to implement them.

Learn the role that gravity plays in stretching, and a range of tactics to use gravity to our advantage- both to assist and to further challenge our flexibility training.

Ballistic Stretching

In contrast to the undeserved, bad reputation ballistic stretching has in the western world, we’ve discovered massive benefits to this, apparently scary, term. Come and learn how to apply the modern, safe synthesis of these, which we term Rhythmic Dynamic Ballistics (RDB). They will deliver life long flexibility when applied correctly. If you want to change the properties of your fascia you must bounce!

Loaded Stretching

While it’s a buzzword at the moment, there are indeed extraordinary results to be gained from applying the loaded stretching techniques. We’ll go into detail on how to apply these methods ranging from techniques using only body weight, added resistance and partners.

Covered Body Areas

The anatomy of the shoulder and thoracic spine presents some interesting problems regarding gaining and maintaining range of motion. With the combination of exercises we teach, you can get the shoulders, spine and chest to open, opening the door to skills that require (extreme) upper body mobility, such as the bridge as a gateway to more advanced skills.

Tight and stiff hips will be shown how to lengthen and strengthen correctly. These carry over to all kinds of lower body flexibility including the squat and the pancake and are needed as basics for ease and flow in movement, but also for advanced gymnastic skills like stalder press to handstand.
