Mistake #3: Not working on flexibility and mobility
This is another big mistake. Flexibility is the ability of the muscles to stretch, while mobility incorporates everything that affects the joints’ mechanics and range of motion. I know it doesn’t seem like stretching and doing mobility exercises will help you lose weight or help you gain muscle, but they contribute to the longevity of training, which should be an important part of any person’s fitness goal.
Again, consistency is key. If you can’t properly get into a position or hold correct form without any weight, you sure can’t do it with weight. If you have some form of tightness causing you to compensate during each step of your run, this will lead to improper mechanics and eventually injury. A proper warm up and intelligently incorporated flexibility and mobility work are necessary for any fitness plan.
