Hey guys the link is in text take time to check out my new article on @elitebaseballperformance

@Regrann from @elitebaseballperformance - Pullover Variations to Improve Overhead Stability in Throwers
Pullovers can give us a global view of the person we are working with - can they do the task we want or do they need an excessive amount of extension strategies to get their arms fully overhead? To truly throw out a runner from 300 feet away or hurl a 95 mile per hour fastball, we need to ensure the shoulder complex is working optimally.

Late addition to the Movement Assessment Series with @primephysiofitness :
[
[
Lateral Lunge variations for frontal plane assessment:
[
[
1. What differences occur in the static vs dynamic lateral lunge?
[
[
2. How does the band alter the positioning in the static or dynamic lateral lunge?
[
[
3. What are some compensations we may see at the hip/knee/ankle in patients and clients?
[
[
There are many different answers as well as more questions to be asked to shoot below and let us all know!

If your not on @clinicalathlete your missing out on a great resource as a student or current clinician. Having access to the site gives you better insight to current clinical practices as well as discussions with others in your profession and outside of it.

Everyone has patients and clients that have neck and shoulder issues
[
[
Teaching people to use low threshold strategies to complete movements is vital in regulating their neurological "tightness".
[
This low oblique sit to bear hold was an awesome addition from @jamescerbie to some programming changes we had to make. If you haven't checked out James or Rebel Performance your missing out on some Gainz!!

You don't always have to train the squat with a back squat (looking at you baseball players)
[
[
When you look at patterns instead of exercises, you can better give people what they need for a training stimulus.
[
[
Being baseball season, we now have many men and women beginning overhead throwing again.
[
With this squat we give someone who may be having shoulder soreness or issues a way to train the squat without having to aggravate their shoulders.
[
We can get shoulder stabilization along with a lower body stimulus that is beneficial for athletes and most general population alike!
[
Cues I use:
1. Pull yourself down to the floor
2. Choke the bar with your hands [
Give it a shot and let me know!

Periodize (change) your reading just like training and rehabilitation. [
[
One of the best things I have done throughout the year is vary the categories of books I read. This helps me with connecting ideas within and outside our realm in strength, rehab and fitness.
]
I go with three easy tiers that rotate throughout the year
[
Tier 1: Directly related to rehab, strength and conditioning, and sports
[
Tier 2: Semi related to tier 1 which is what I'm in currently with the Precision Nutrition Certification.
[
Tier 3: Complete unrelated to Tier 1/2 but applicable to them such as business, leadership, physics, psychology, neurology, etc. This last has been the best addition becuase many applications come from looking outside the field your currently in.
[
Interested to hear what others do to learn and grow!

Single Leg Eccentric Squat to Bilateral stand with reach [
When we want to begin to challenge someone's single leg ability in rehab or training, we need to find ways they can be proficient and build on their success.
[
This exercise let's a client feel and find the position they need for a single leg squat even if they don't have the requisite strength to do the concentric portion yet.
[
This exercise can challenge a general population client who wants Variety in single leg work or work their way up to a single leg squat unassisted.
[
I believe it also has application in a rehab patient who now needs eccentric focused work to begin to handle forces that may have aggravated them prior to coming.
[
Try it out and let me know what you think. [

Single Leg Landmine RDL:
[
This landmine exercise is actually useful for everyone.
[
One change I like to do is instead of having them perpendicular I like to have them parallel with the bar.
[
This will allow me to cue them into following the bar backwards like their leg is an extension of the bar!
[
I also start with a bent leg because we can reduce the external demand on the person and better allow them to focus on the hinge. @strengthcoachtherapy has a great talk on this in one of past hinge posts.
[
Give this slight change a shot and let me know!

The Bear Position Step Up:
[
[
This is an awesome combination of a bear hold and a "step up" that can be a great integrative exercise for ab control as well as shoulder stability and mobility.
[
Cues:
1. Reach your arms as long as you can throughout the whole movement.
2. Keep your belt buckle towards your chin
3. Breathes go in through your nose and out through your mouth while trying to fill the middle part of your back instead of your neck and upper chest.
[
Give it a shot and let me know!

Transitioning into frontal plane work:
[
[
The Crossover step up can be a good bridge in helping a patient or client begin to reinforce frontal plane control by having them cross midline with their working leg to step up onto a box or bench.
[
Give this variation a try and let me know what you think!
