Frequently Asked Questions
Q: When is the best time to do this program?
A: This is answered easiest by saying when you should not do this program. Do not complete these sessions before you workout. Therefore, they can be completed in the morning, post-training or evening, all of which are perfectly fine.
Q: Do I need to be warm when doing this program?
A: You don’t need to do a warm-up (in the traditional sense) before completing these sessions, but I do want you to create an environment for your muscles and joints that encourages relaxation and adaptation. In other words, if your environment is cold, do what is necessary so you can be warm. That might mean moving to a warmer room or putting on sweats. If you are training in warmer months or you just finished a training session, this isn’t necessary.
Q: What amount of progress can I expect to see with this program?
A: It depends …on your age, training history, joint health, soft tissue quality, commitment to the program, consistency and countless other factors. However, there are some similar themes for most people who complete this program.
One, you will likely see some immediate improvements in freedom and positions. Tuning the nervous system to relaxed and allow your muscles to elongate will take place in a few minutes and typically last several hours up to several days.
Two, you will see lasting change improve slowly. The process of restructuring muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia and other tissues takes time. You WILL see progress, but to keep those results, mobility work needs to be a long-term lifestyle habit.
The goal of this program is to claim both these short and long-term improvements to maximize your progress in key joints and ranges.
