When comparing two exercise programs, you need to take into account the amount of hours required for each. Look at the results, and look at the time commitment.Sure, a tedious program centered around the Olympic lifts and lots of track work is going to going to do wonders for an athlete's development. However, it's a lot of time, and time that could be spend focus on the sport or something else instead.
Sounds like blasphemy, but more research keeps confirming that the gold standard of body fat loss strategy, burn more calories than you're taking in, just isn't complete by itself.
The "mobility standard" is a super simple assessment package that also doubles as a warmup. After an injury screen, watching someone walk or jog a bit and maybe get off the ground a few times (it tells a lot!), I can run them through these four movements and get a pretty accurate idea what they can do and can't do for exercise in the gym. Notice we're talking about exercise in the gym not the next tough mudder or preparing for an MMA fight. And for a healthy person.
Everyone has at least a slightly different option as to what it means to be in the best shape in their life. A stay-home mother might tell you it's fitting into a size -2 while for a competitive powerlifter might tell you it's whatever body allows him to lift the most weight.
