November Mobility Program

Posted 4th November 2019 by Anthony Masters

As many of you know I am skiving off to Malaysia and Indonesia for 3 weeks soon. I figured doing a course related to mobility on the other side of the planet would justify extending my trip into a holiday. Fear not, you will be in good hands, in my absence Leticia will be running the classes. For those of you that have not met her before here are some important facts you need to know. Some years ago Leticia decided that sitting at the office hours on end was not for her anymore. During her globe trotting break in pursuit of a career change she visited India to do an intensive Yin Yoga training, unfortunately smuggling chicken breasts into Yoga sanctuaries to satisfy her craving for meat was not sustainable in the long run. We could have told her that being a Brazilian that loves her steak rare. Fast track forward she also qualified as a PT and Functional Range Conditioning practitioner, in other words a mobility specialist. From here she decided this was the path she wanted to pursue where it is OK to eat meat. Leticia has the eyes of an eagle for spotting mobility deficits and loves using her knowledge to troubleshoot problems when it comes to making movement look sexy. She has learnt and been mentored by some very knowledgeable beings in and out of the field of mobility training. Without a doubt she will bring to the table some amazing new stuff i am simply crap at.




Wk 1 – Anthony: Hip adductors, butterfly pose to straddle stringed together by intense shoulder work. This is an all rounder class bringing back a lot of moves I did in my very first class but with a little more intensity this time.


Wk 2 – Leticia: Hip focus and perfecting the squat. Hip internal rotation, hip flexion without the lower back getting involved (many of us struggle with this), loading tissues dynamically with kinetic stretching and eccentric work.


Wk 3 – Leticia: Complete upper body push/ pull focus. Scapular retraction/ protraction, shoulder extension and internal/ external rotation work (again stuff most of us suck at) followed by some wrist prep and thoracic spine awareness.


Wk 4 – Leticia: Full body, maintaining existing ranges of motion through FRC techniques such as passive range holds, lift-offs, hovers, advanced CARS. Moving through positions, more time under tension and higher reps.
