🔊Our final assessment in the toe touch series is taking the focus away from the common misconception of hamstring tightness as a limiting factor, and looking at the hip joint’s mobility and spine’s mobility to flex.
🔺The first assessment will take a look at the flexion in the hip joint. With the patient lying on the floor, have them bend both knees up into their chest. We are looking to see if their thighs are touching their ribs, and if there is any pain or abhorrent strain in that position.
◾️The next assessment will look at the spine’s mobility. Have the patient flip over on their knees and move into child’s pose. In this position we are looking to see again if the ribs are touching the thighs. We are also checking for a uniform symmetrical curve of the spine or if are there any straight areas that aren’t bending.
🔺As you can see when there is a limitation in a movement pattern it is important to take a look more specifically at the potential causes, because what may appear like one issue can actually be another. Make sure you check off all the boxes before moving on to corrective exercises to address the problem. @meyerfitness

🔊Moving along in our series today, we are looking deeper into our assessments of potential limitations in the toe touch. Today’s video discusses the possibility of hamstring or hip flexor tightness, or lack of mobility.
🔺As discussed in our previous videos, if the client cannot touch their toes while standing or lying down, we know there is a mobility deficit. But where is that deficit originating?
◾️With the patient lying on their back, have them lift one leg up. Make sure the knee is straight and the bottom leg remains on the floor. As they raise their leg, we are looking for them to reach at least 70 degrees. If the patient can’t reach the 70-80 degree mark actively, you can take the leg and try to passively place it into the necessary range of motion. As long as the patient’s leg can reach that mark, we are able to rule out hamstring mobility as a limitation in the toe touch.
🔺The hamstrings may not be the only culprit to cause a mobility deficit in the toe touch. In our final assessment, we are going to look at another common mobility issue. @meyerfitness

Starting the weekend 100% rehydrated! @becohlwein

🔥 How to Improve Shoulder Mobility in the Overhead Athlete 🔥 .
🏋🏼‍♀️
For the full video click the link in my bio👌🏽 👇🏼
👇🏼
This video is a follow up to my most recent video post on how to assess over head shoulder mobility
.
.
⚡️Here are 4 corrective exercises that will help you regain flexibility in the muscles of the latissimus dorsi (lats), subscapularis (subscap), and teres major
.
.
⚡️Optimal flexibility within this musculature will also help to improve your shoulders joint mobility allowing you to maintain a healthy range of motion during active over head movements or drills. This is not only important for the athlete but for everyone due to the functionality of performing over head movements on a daily basis

🔊After talking about the importance of looking at mobility and stability deficits in the toe touch, here is a great way to help determine if stability is actually our limiting factor. ◾️Once the patient, does a toe touch standing, we might see that they can complete the movement, but something is slightly off. For example, they may be a bit forward in their toes. The next step is to have them lie down on the floor, with their feet together, and their knees straight. Cue the patient to reach forward and touch their toes. If they can successfully touch their toes on the floor, where they couldn’t standing up, that is a big indicator that this is a stability issue, not a mobility issue. 🔺If the mobility of your posterior chain, your hamstrings, and your hip flexors are so limited that you couldn’t touch your toes standing up, you wouldn’t be able to touch your toes lying down either. 👀Next up, we will show how we go through and assess exactly which part of the body is our limiting factor in either mobility or stability. @meyerfitness

Can you guess what @ronnie_baker14 use to rehydrate and recover faster??

🔊Moving forward in our series on the toe touch and why a healthy toe touch is so important, we are beginning our assessment to show the easy ways to differentiate a mobility deficit from a stability deficit.
◾️First thing, have the patient perform a toe touch. If you see the patient bend without a posterior hip hinge, that is a dysfunctional movement. Even though the mobility is there to perform the movement, the stability component is lacking in the core to allow the hips to hinge.
🔺Check back tomorrow to see how to assess the stability component after you recognize the dysfunction. @meyerfitness

🔊#researchwednesday takes a look the important of improving movement patterns.
🔺An exercise program should have some intention to it besides abusing the tissues into submission. High intensity is great as long as its being utilized with thoughtful design to maximize and challenge your movement and lead to movement compensations (even unseen by the eye).
◾️Same for a rehab program, be it to correct mechanics or decrease perceived threat to a movement pattern; Each exercise should be systematic and sequential in correcting and improving on a specific movement pattern.
🔺So ask your physical therapist, your personal trainer, your coach "Why am I doing this specific exercise and how is this making me actually move better?” They better have an answer...

#techniquetuesday featuring Lateral Step Downs.
🔺This exercise is great for building strength in your VMO (innermost quad muscle) and is often used as a good variation to step-ups for people with cranky patellas (knees) due to the direction of the step and the angle of force place on the knee. This movement is also great for lateral hip stabilization, contralateral oblique strengthening, and as an added bonus, working on dorsiflexion on the standing leg.
Movement Cues:
1️⃣Keep your torso parallel with your shin, spine neutral, and knee driven out to align the hip with the outside of the foot.
2️⃣Maintain your center of gravity above support leg.
3️⃣Evenly distribute the weight across foot/arch being sure to avoid excessive arch collapse/pronation at the foot.
Muscles Targeted:
◾️VMO
◾️Gluteus Medius
◾️Adductors
◾️Obliques
📝Note: Higher surfaces will require more hinge at the hip so use your arms to counter-balance you.
➡️Swipe to see how it’s done!

Calf raises are rad 😎
This is so simple to add to your daily routine and it will be a huge game changer in the health of your calves while running 🏃‍♀️(or in life in general!). Start with 10 with feet facing forward, 10 with feet 👣 facing to sides and build up by adding more as you feel comfortable (try 12 the next week, 14 the next, and so on) and enjoy healthy, happy calves! 😃

🔊Continuing on with our toe touch series...
🔺Why is mobility important and where should you be mobile?
📝Note: A common misconception to a poor toe touch is hamstring tightness, but the reality is there are so many other factors at play.
◾️Some people argue that as many as 40-50% of people that cannot do a toe touch, have nothing to do with hamstring tightness. Other things that can be involved are hip flexor mobility. If your hips can’t bend into that forward fold position, that will limit the distance you can flex the trunk to reach your toes. Looking at the back, your spine needs to be able to flex as well. If you have hypermobility in your spinal segments and back muscles, that will restrict you from reaching your toes, too.
🔺Now taking mobility out of the equation, it is just as important to look at stability in the movement.
◾️Why is stability important and where should you be stable?
📝Note: Stability is not the same as strength. Strength is how capable (strong) you are to resist a force or move an object. Stability, simply put, is more of an ability for your muscles to do what you want, when you want. Coordinating patterns and firing muscles in the right sequences.
🔺In a toe touch, you need to have stability in your core to get a good amount of flexion moving forward. That same stability needs to be present in your hip flexors to get into a good coordinated hip pattern to bend forward and shift the hips back. In order to have a good functional toe touch, all of these stability components must be addressed along with mobility.
◾️Check back tomorrow to see how we begin assessing each of these movements. @meyerfitness

🔊So why should you be able to touch your toes?
◾️A good toe touch represents posterior chain health, fluidity of joints working together, and it sets you up to do certain exercises that are more complex. The toe touch is a foundational movement. So we need to be able to do that simple movement before progressing to a more complex movement.
🔺From a PT standpoint, it is a good parameter to measure the ability of this simple movement as a way to clear someone to move on to a more complex movement. Whereas from a personal training side, the more movement the client has and the better it is, there is less risk of an injury.
◾️There are two things to consider when assessing whether or not someone can or cannot do a toe touch, and why they might have a limitation. Those two factors are mobility and stability. @meyerfitness
