5 Animal Mobility consists of 5 separate workout programs. Each “Animal” represents one or a combination of the fundamental movement patterns- the squat, twist, bend, push, pull and lunge.
Each program consists of a dynamic warm up followed by a series of specific mobility and resistance exercises to increase your range of active movement.
The 5 Animals- Tiger, Dragon, Bear, Crane, Monkey- are inspired from Traditional Chinese Medicine and the “five elements” concepts.
Tiger represents the squat movement pattern, Dragon represents the twist/rotation, Bear represents the bend, Crane represents the push and lunge patterns, and Monkey represents the pull and lunge patterns.
Find your Power Animal!
The 5 Animal Mobility programs can be used as self-assessment tools. You will be able to identify your “Power Animal”- this is the movement pattern that you can perform well. Certain movement patterns have sports and activity -specific applications, so you can build on your movement patterns as required.
Find your Critical Animal!
The movement pattern that carries the highest risk of injury is your “Critical Animal” and is the pattern that you need to focus on and develop the most. You can use the 5 Animal Mobility programs for self-assessment to help you determine your weaker movement patterns which you should look to improve.
