THE GOWOD MOBILITY TEST How does the GOWOD mobility test work?
The GOWOD mobility test allows you to determine your overall mobility score, as well as your strengths and weaknesses so GOWOD can personalize your mobilization protocols.
The GOWOD mobility test also shows you your detailed mobility score, zone by zone, specifically: shoulders, overhead (ability to extend the arms above the head), hips, posterior chain and ankles. Once you have created your free account on the GOWOD app, click on “TEST MY MOBILITY”. You will then be guided through 10 different tests which are accompanied by a video demonstration. The whole test only takes 12 to 15 minutes to complete. When and how do I complete my initial GOWOD mobility test?
To ensure that the mobility test takes place in the best possible conditions, you should ideally complete your test at least 2 hours after waking up, without any prior mobilization or specific training. Avoid performing the test if you are feeling stiff.
Why is my profile can be different of my greatest weakness?
GOWOD configures your profile always making sure to prioritize your safety. Your configured profile is set up for the weakness which will most benefit from improvement rather than your greatest weakness. This is to make your workout as safe as possible and accelerate your progress. The GOWOD mobility test algorithm also takes into account the areas most commonly injured in fitness training when configuring your profile. Thanks to the GOWOD mobility test, your profile is reviewed every month following the same principle.
I made a mistake when performing my mobility test. How do I reset it?
You can reset your mobility test by clicking on your mobility score on the dashboard, then clicking on “Reset my test”. Your last mobility score will then be deleted, your previous score will reappear and the “Test my mobility” button will be functional again. You can then take the GOWOD mobility test again. Warning: This action is irreversible.
For information, the "Test my mobility" button automatically becomes active again 30 days after your last test. CREATING AND MANAGING YOUR GOWOD ACCOUNT How do I create a GOWOD account?

UNDERSTANDING AND OPTIMIZING THE USE OF THE GOWOD FEATURES What are the various different GOWOD mobilization protocols?
There are 4 different types of GOWOD protocols. Each type of protocol has been researched and designed to help you reach your goals, whether that is to improve your well-being, enhance your performance or speed-up your recovery.
The “PRE WOD” mobilization protocols: These protocols are adapted to your mobility profile, the movements you perform when you are training, as well as the time you have available. The “PRE WOD” protocols prepare your body for workout enabling it to move in a better range of motion. They are composed of dynamic mobilization exercises, muscle activation, short static stretches (1 minute max.) and targeted self-massage movements. The “POST WOD” recovery protocols: These protocols are adapted to the movements you perform when you are training as well as the time you have available. They are composed exclusively of targeted self-massage movements in order to relax the muscles that have been used the most during the last training session. The “DAILY” mobilization protocols: These protocols are tailored to your mobility profile as well as the time you have available. The “SPECIFIC FLOWS” mobilization protocols are a subcategory of the “DAILY” protocols. They are adapted to the time you have available and allow you to specifically target a certain area of the body according to your needs and goals. What is the best time of day to perform my GOWOD protocols?
Every type of GOWOD protocol is designed to meet each of your needs according to the specific context and time of day.
The “PRE WOD” mobilization protocols prepare your body for training. They should therefore be performed just before training. Ideally, start with a gentle overall warm-up (e.g. cross-trainer, rowing machine or bike at a relaxed pace) The “POST WOD” recovery protocols help your body recover more quickly. Ideally, they should be performed just after training for maximum efficacy. However, you can perform your POST WOD a few hours after training. The “DAILY” and “SPECIFIC FLOWS” mobilization protocols: Mobilization protocols tailored to your mobility profile as well as the time you have available. You can perform these protocols whenever you like, whenever you want to relax and take care of your body. Performing the “DAILY” protocol will help energize your body to get your day off to a good start. Performing it in the evening will help you fall asleep more quickly. How often should I perform my GOWOD protocols to see real progress?
For maximum efficacy, perform a short “DAILY” protocol every day rather than 2 or 3 long protocols on weekends only.
Ideally, perform a “DAILY” protocol for 22 minutes every day and use the “PRE WOD” and “POST WOD” protocols before and after every workout.
