Re: Wendler 5-3-1, deload, and mobility work
What I meant was that sometimes you do not need mobility work to get better. You need STABILITY work. Your body needs it. Without it, your body tightens up to create the stability. Many people mistake that as being tight, and needing to stretch, or work on more mobility.
While mobility work is great, it will not be effective if the reason for your poor mobility is due to your lack of stability.
1. Standing, bend forward and try to touch your toes. Then sit on the floor and do the same. Did you notice a difference, what? Did you reach further while sitting on the ground, or standing?
2. Laying down. MUST KEEP BOTH LEGS STRAIGHT, AND YOUR ANKLE IS IN DORSIFLEXION, and having someone to watch you would be helpful. Flex one leg at a time. See where your heel on the flexed leg is. Pasted the knee of the leg on the floor? Mid thigh? Almost 90 degrees? Do the same on the other side, note any assymetries.
This will give you some idea whether you are on the right track with all the mobility you are doing for the hips.
