Mobility vs. Flexibility

Everybody has slightly different definitions of these two items.

I view flexibility as more of a passive mobility - or the ability to get moved into a certain range of motion either via a practitioner/coach or by gravity.

As compared to mobility which I view as more active. You are actively trying to move a joint through a certain range of motion.

Something like a PRONE SHOULDER ROTATION or a HIP WINDMILL I view as more mobility, than flexibility.

Something like a SPLIT SQUAT LATERAL FLEXION, while gravity is passively pulling you down into a range of motion, it requires immense spinal control and eccentric force production.

So there's a grey area between the two, but in general:

  • Flexibility = Passive

  • Mobility = Active
