Flexibility vs. Mobility & Conditioning vs. Strength
Flexibility is the range/extent to which your body can move by passive (outside) force without causing injury.
*An example would be stretching a leg muscle into a deep stretch under the force gravity, using a free hand to push, or with assistance from a partner.
Mobility is the range/extent to which your body can move by active force (under your own motor control while maintaining balance) without causing injury.
*An example would be to stand on one leg while extended the other leg away without the assistance of your hands or a partner.
Strength is the ability to move and control people and things that are not your own body or attached to it.
*An example would be picking someone up or pushing them off of you.
Conditioning is the ability to use and manage strength and mobility over long periods of time.
*An example would be engaging in a sport or any physical activity that challenges your mobility and strength without resting – without stopping long enough to fully recover.
