Don’t Separate Flexibility and Mobility: You Need Both

Flexibility is often confused with the need to stretch and that is then equated with your mobility. So, let’s first start by defining flexibility and mobility. Flexibility is your passive (relaxed) range of motion. For example, while standing have someone lift your foot up in front of your body as high as possible. That is your legs flexibility in that position.

On the other hand, mobility is your active range of motion. For example, have someone raise your leg up and now can you lift your leg up and out of that person’s hand? No, then lower the leg and see where you can lift it up to without the assistance of your partner. The height you were able to lift it on your own is your mobility.
