How Often do You Work on Mobility?


#1

How important is direct mobility work and how often do you work on it? I've become paranoid about poor form and hence poor mobility since I herniated a disc.

I want to get back into powerlifting and it frustrates me thinking of what I used to lift, but every pain in my knees or stress on my back and I want to back off.

When I was rehabbing I did 2 hours every day of mobility, stability, soft tissue work. Now I do about 30 minutes before workouts 3 days a week, focusing on my main issue, hip mobility.

ill usually use a softball and theracane for soft tissue work then do some hip stretches before I lift. I worked on my mobility really hard for about 3 months, now i find it doesnt take much to keep it.

What did you do for those 3 months?
