Excellent first go around! I have done mobility stuff with bands and foam rolling and even movemtn stuff, but as you mention it got to be too much, so I whittled it down. Sacrificed the foam rolling and movement stuff. Now I'm cutting the band stuff back and bringing back the foam roller as I miss that the most I think and it was certainly stupid to drop it because of laziness.

I do think mobility stuff is important in genneral as it does help you perform the lifts. I know there is an argument about the lifts themselves being enough mobility work as long as you perfrom the lifts correctly, but I have my doubts about that.

Good stuff!
