Proximal Stability Before Distal Mobility

Proximal Stability Before Distal Mobility


Want to make gains & minimize your risk of injury?



One of the fundamental cornerstones of our training page is emphasizing “Proximal Stability Before Distal Mobility”. Let’s break down what this means:

  • Proximal Stability

    • The proximal foundation of our body needs to be stable. This refers to our core, scapular, & paraspinal musculature.
  • Distal Mobility

    • The ability for our arms, forearms, hands, upper leg, lower leg, feet, & head to move properly in order to build muscle effectively while preventing injury.

Many athletes, especially young ones, do not have the proper proximal stability in order to train the rest of their body responsibly. Check out our future posts to learn how you can incorporate this concept into your training in order to become the best athlete that you can be!
