Scientific Application of Mobility Training Seminar

Scientific Application of Mobility Training


When: December 5th, 2020

Where: Zoom Meet Up

Time: 9:00am – 3:00pm pst


Key Concepts

  • Differentiation of tissue responses to common mobility modalities
  • individual anatomic variations and assessments, changes in adaptation over aging
  • neurovascular responses to force applications in mobility training scenarios
  • research-based best practices to see specific mobility improvements depending on affected tissues
  • Application of mobility methods (practical section)


Mobility is a key phrase used in many strength and conditioning, as well as rehabilitation settings. With this, the application of mobility training is typically not backed by the current body of research, nor is it highly specific to the needs of the individual in terms of whether it’s a structural, neural, or mechanical limitation that they’re approaching.

Each type tissue responds to different types of mobility training.

This course outlines the current research in mobility training, how it’s application is best utilized, and breaks down how to specify the most appropriate modalities to get the fastest specific results possible.

Lecture: 65%

Practical/Hands-on learning: 35%


Learning Objectives

  • Understand the needs of each client or patient you see, plus direct ways to address their specific concerns regarding mobility training
  • Identifying specific limitations to mobility, and how they may be affecting the goals of the individual you’re working with.
  • appropriate use of tools such as long-hold static stretches, contract/relax modalities, eccentric overloads, loaded end ranges, and positional isometrics
  • effectively coach different modalities mentioned above for improvement of shoulder and hip function, specifically
  • Programming considerations for mobility, including when to move on from mobility training to more advanced modalities in strength & conditioning, plus when to return focus back to mobility training within a training calendar.
