Muscle. Strength. Flexibility. Endurance. Fat loss – these are the most common terms we associate “Fitness” with.
At BodyTree, we choose to practice and teach Mobility Fitness™ instead.
What is SAM?
Flexibility refers to the ability of a muscle or a group of muscles to lengthen Passively through a range of motion (ROM) and is only a component of Mobility.
MOBILITY is the ability to move a joint Actively through a ROM. Mobility takes into account the joint, the joint capsule (ligaments), the muscles crossing the joint and the nervous system (motor control).
Mobility must be coupled with appropriate stability to ensure integrity of joints and support structures – this is where STRENGTH of the joint stabiliser muscles comes in.
Strength and Mobility is what everyone should be seeking because it is applicable in real life situation. In other words, it is functional.
A lot of time, pain is related to muscle shortening and/or weakness in the deep structural joint stabilisers muscles weakness. Unfortunately, some fitness professionals unknowingly contribute to this pain because of an ineffective exercise sequence and programming.
SAM is created to address hypertonic muscle spasm and stabilizers weakness to prepare the joints and muscles for Mobility Fitness™ and is the Foundation to all other movement disciplines.
