Mobility is an important component of a successful floorball goalie and is the ability of a joint to actively move through a range of motions. Exercising your mobility helps enable a better motion of your limbs, it enables the joints to their fullest range of movements and reduces movement restrictions. Without targeted training, the muscles flexibility regresses, the connective tissue starts to sticks together and the mobility of joints and spine decreases.
The aim of mobility training is to mobilise the joints with targeted exercises (active or passive) over a large radius of movement. The vascular system also benefits from exercises for mobility.
In this section, we will present different mobility and flexibility movements and positions, which we advice to use for your mobility and flexibility progression.
Please note that besides the eccentric movement of many mobility exercises also the training of explosive movements must not be neglected. As a goalkeeper you often have to make a save with an explosive movement.
The posts distributed into two sections.
The first section provides you the opportunity to filter on positions and movements. This allows you to see the appropriate exercises for a certain position.
The second section allows you to filter on a certain muscle group. As indicated in the figure above, the body has been divided into 15 muscle groups.
Area 1 : Head, neck
Area 2 : Upper back
Area 3 : Jaw
Area 4 : Front shoulder area, chest
Area 5 : rear shoulder area, latissimus
Area 6 : lower back, lumbar muscles, abs
Area 7 : Arms
Area 8 : Gluteal muscles
Area 9 : Adductors
Area 10 : Hip flexors, quadriceps
Area 11 : Hamstring muscles
Area 12 : Knee
Area 13 : Shin
Area 14 : Calf
Area 15 : Ankle joint, foot, toes
When you sort by Mobility area, please consider that we only marked the most used muscle groups. Naturally, other muscle groups are also used for the respective exercises.
If you filter, please press the main group first and afterwards the subgroup (ex. Mobility Positions and then Shinbox)
