Mobility for Mountain Bikers (M4MTB) is based on Functional Range Systems (FRS). FRS is the industry standard for mobility coaching and utilized by professional and collegiate sports teams all over the world to enhance performance and speed recovery and healing.
Controlled Articular Rotations (CARs) are the backbone of our system. You will learn a quick pre-ride routine that takes just 12 minutes with practice to warm-up and assess your: neck, scapula, shoulders, thoracic and lumbar spine, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles, feet and diaphragm. There simply isn't a more complete or convenient way to make sure your body primed to perform at it's best.
Through your CARs practice you will learn insight into your own body and be able to identify and correct movement deficiencies (joints that have limited or inadequate range of motion) and compensations (one body part doing the job of another) that can lead to big problems on the trail.
Certain movements are critical to performing your very best on the bike. We consulted with mountain bike riders and coaches as well as movement experts to determine the top five areas that hold riders back. Our system will help you to quickly identify the big 5 and teach you how to attack your weakest link to become the strongest rider you can be!
Strong, properly-functioning joints are less likely to less likely to be injured and heal faster when they do. When recovering from crashes or injuries, it is important to move the injured joint as much as possible. Our system will guide you through the healing process and get you back on the bike in record time.
