I’ve heard a lot of definitions of mobility, usually its defined as a form of physical rehabilitation. But Mobility goes WAY beyond that. Mobility, simply put, is the combination of stretching and contracting within the same movement. This combination leads to greater range of motion, because you have not only stretched the body, you have also forced the muscles to contract within that stretch; meaning that you will now have more control and be able to perform that range of motion better, now that your muscles have been active in that range of motion.
See our ancestors never stretched. I can’t picture any of our ancestors ever saying, “oh my hamstrings are really tight today.” Then bending over to touch his/her toes. Our ancestors were incredible movers with far greater range of motion than most people today because of the way they moved and lived. It forced them to stretch and contract in their movements everyday.
