AMR Trains #26: Mobility for Runners with Dr. Erin Kling, PT, DPT

Range of motion, dynamic warm-ups, and tight muscles: Dimity chats all things mobility for runners with Dr. Erin Kling, who practices at The Running PT's in Cary, North Carolina.

Erin tells us:
—How you can tell if you're needing to work on your mobility;
—Why it's good to have muscles that are a little stiff;
—Why aggressive stretching doesn't help your running;
—And why your inner thigh muscles (adductors) are surprisingly tight.
