Sooo.. finally got the seeding workouts for my comp in November 😵 looking forward to having a good go at them 💪🏻 But for now, here’s a #sweatyselfie
CASE SERIES FOR BFR: ACL Reconstruction Rehabilitation 🔸 Case - Individual is three days post operation and presents with significant inability to contract quadriceps. Noticeable atrophy is present already on the surgical side. 🔸 BFR Priorities for Rehab: 🔸 - Prevent Additional Quadriceps Atrophy!!! - The extensor musculature of the body (quadriceps, calfs in particular) tend to atrophy significantly with immobilization/following surgery. In ACL-Reconstruction, prolonged quadriceps weakness has been observed over a year after surgery. BFR during the early post-operative period can help prevent additional quadriceps loss while stimulating the type II muscle fibers that tend to be the most significantly affected by immobilization/surgery. Cell swelling protocols would immediately be introduced day 1 to acclimate to BFR as well as to begin stimulation of secondary hypertrophy pathways. I would also pair with low-level electrical stimulation to improve growth hormone release and stimulate type II fibers, progressing to AROM with Estim to help reduce extensor lag. 🔸 - Promote Improved Collagen Synthesis- Following BFR exercise, there is significant elevations in growth hormone levels. Growth hormone is thought to have a mediator role in hypertrophy but a stronger role in helping remodel tissue. Typically, growth hormone was only thought to be elevated with high intensity exercise. 🔸 -Pain reduction - There is evidence showing BFR exercise creates pain-relieving effects lasting at least 45 minutes. This can be useful prior to gait training to help reduce perceptions of pain. 🔸 #humanperformancemechanic#midtownnyc#performancetraining#fisio#strengthtraining#fisioterapia#physio#nycpersonaltrainer#chiropractic#physicaltherapist#physicaltherapy#bodybuilding#bfrt#crossfitnyc#nycphysicaltherapy#kneepain#occlusiontraining#rehabilitation#injuryrecovery#bloodflowrestriction#bfr#bfrtraining#Fitnessnyc#Physiotherapy#aclrehab#acl#midtowneast#newyorkcity#acltear
Awesome Times in Lisbon! Working out 2 days in a row while on vacations! #winwin . . . . . . . .
Find the hardest thing somebody can do well.....words to live by for my fellow coach’s. The first principles of movement as thought by @cliebenson@doctachow tell us that N=1. We must meet our clients where they are. . I often here coach tell clients they can’t do particular move because they are not activating this muscle or that muscle. I to have made these statements in the past and although this statement may be true. It may also be true that the coach or trainer just doesn’t know why the client is having issues or how to solve these issues. This can be a cop out for the coach. . . I may not always have the answer to every problem, but I know for 100% sure I will always seek to find answers so I can best serve the people I work with. . . The concept of “the hardest thing people do well” is not about regression but rather progressing to something that is hard for that individual that can be done well. . This concept forces me to look more closely at what I do with each and every person I work with to truly find what works best for them. I think the videos above help demonstrate this well and you can see a dramatic difference in Francis squat patterns in the end once we put some tension into the system. . . . . . . #squat#ripped#cleanfood#ketosis#powerlifting#healthy#transformation#keto#nutrition#glutes#picoftheday#snatch#protein#strong#deadlifts#personaltrainer#deadlifts#personaltrainer#squats#health#transformation#Abs#crossfit#workout#coachpmc#crossfitnyc#firstprinciplesofmovement
