Improve overhead mobility in gymnasts: addressing the latissimus dorsi 🤸‍♀️. Often times this muscle is strong but tight on gymnasts, but not always addressed properly.
.........,,,, Recognize this first stretch? If this stretch isn’t actually felt along the latissimus dorsi or pectoralis major (next post), or there is a pinch over the tops of the shoulders, is this stretch really doing what is intended? It’s not always bad, but you have to ask your gymnasts, “Where do you feel this stretch?” And guide them if it’s not beneficial for them.
..........
Here are some other options, beginning with soft tissue mobility along the entire latissimus — along the back and under the arm pit. Followed by alternative stretches that can be easily used in the gym. But again, make sure to ask “Where do you feel this stretch?”

FINALLY! I am coming down from the excitement of presenting “Improving Hip & Shoulder flexibility: A Physical Therapist’s Perspective” at the USAG Region 3 Congress 2018. In Dallas, TX. I had an hour for the shoulder and an hour for the hip and I couldn’t be happier with how they went! This was one of the most exciting opportunities I have had in my professional career and I can’t wait for more opportunities to combine my passions for physical therapy and gymnastics. Everyone who attended had excellent questions and showed such interest in learning. Thank you for the opportunity to 🤓 nerd-out with all the welcoming, intelligent, and motivated coaches that made it to my presentations. 🤸‍♀️🤸‍♂️🤸‍♀️🤸‍♀️🤸‍♂️🤸‍♀️🤸‍♂️🤸‍♀️🤸‍♂️🤸‍♀️🤸‍♂️
Special thanks to @erica_n_madrid and @kiradium for modeling and helping. Thank you Dr. Tilly at @shift_movementscience for TONS of fantastic PT in the gymnastics setting.

Closing day at #lovelandskiresort with my pops! 😆👍🏽 Very fun day 🎿 ❄️ 🏂

What an amazing trip with @mindak3 and Mark! Climbed and snowshoed to the top of Poot Peak (pictured above #whatspootmean #whatsapoot ), boated across the bay, scared off all the bears, and luxuriously cabined at Halibut Cove Lagoon in Kachemak Bay State Park. You can see the range from the beach off the Homer Spit. Can’t wait to come back. Thanks for the adventure, Alaska.

This guy’s name is Optimus Prime and he was stoked to see us and taste us (...or maybe mostly his food). #octopus #optimusprimetheoctopus #alaskasealifecenter
PS - Did you know their “suckers” are how they taste?? 👅 ...mind = 💥

Level unlocked! #tricking #scootatoot
