In addition to hip CARs, this is a pretty typical hip mobility routine for me. 🤗
▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
To improve your hip mobility, you don’t need to do these exact movements. Just play around. Find a range of motion that you want to improve. Then, take your joint to near the end range of that motion and contract the heck of your muscles around said joint at that end range. Relax and repeat. 💪
It’s really that simple.
▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
Tissues and cells respond to TIME UNDER TENSION.
Applying tension (best if done via active muscle contractions) and then, holding that position with as much control as possible is the most effective and efficient way to communicate to whatever tissue is restricting your range. 🧐
▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
If you squat, run, jump, walk or just want to be a human with good hips, you’ll be better off if you help your body create as many movement options as possible. Performance will improve. Recovery will be enhanced. Injury will be mitigated.

Living room floor mobility. Easy to get in a few minutes every night.
That right hip though. 👌

In this series of photos you can see the Outer Wing of the MOBI being used to mash/scrape the flexors of the forearms along with activating them with movement.
_____________________________________________________________
If your wrists ache in a front rack or overhead position simply “stretching” them isn’t likely going to give you long term relief. Being able to control tension throughout a full range of motion on BOTH sides of the joint is where long term results come from!

Loosen tissue, prep tissue, THEN use tissue!

Day 80 continued. The squat is more than an exercise. It's a first and fundamentally a movement. On days like today, I use load to improve my proficiency in that movement. -
It's taken a lot of work post OEF/Purple Heart to develop the mobility to squat ATG with a narrow stance, especially with sub-optimal footwear. I have done so by religiously implementing the pause squat into my programming at least twice a week.
-
I pick a load that's an easy set of 10, and practice the unrack, walkout, brace, descend and sit in the hole for (in this case) 5-7 seconds. I do these single by single because this is for mobility and virtuosity, not necessarily pure strength and conditioning.
-
By strengthening the end ranges of this movement, my knees, hips and ankles have stayed injury free and have significantly improved ROM. Plus, standing up in the hole after a long pause becomes a dead dig making a regular "bounce out of the bottom" squat "feel" much easier and safer to perform. That, and it's great for getting in "trigger-time" on days when you just don't have it in you to challenge heavier loads or higher training volumes.

If you’ve gotta force it - leave it. Challenge yourself to find the most benefit in a pose rather than the deepest variation #unboundmermaidpose #noforce #mobilitynotflexibility #strongandbendy #movementculture #yogapants

Hanging variations for maintaining healthy shoulders that can move into complex ranges of motion pain and injury free, spinal decompression and just a hell of a lot of fun 🤸🏻‍♂️🐒

slow like honey 🍯
.
can you keep your pelvis still during a twist?
can you REALLY engage your external rotators to actively open your chest?
can you press your bottom sternum down when you reach overhead/depress the shoulders?
all valid questions — can you find the WHY behind your practice
& keep practicing!

If I’m asked what I do and I say I’m a yoga teacher, inevitably someone says “I couldn’t do yoga, I can’t even touch my toes”. Please let me explain, that Yoga has NOTHING to do with touching your toes, or with flexibility in general. Unless being able to touch your toes particularly suits your body right now and helps you feel easeful and at home in your body enough to be still, relaxed and focused, then it’s irrelevant to yoga. Strangely enough, touching your toes will not make you enlightened, or give you enduring contentment and equanimity. So despite the impression you might get from Instagram and Facebook pictures, please let’s just forget about the imagined importance of touching our damn toes. You are enough already. Come to Yoga just as you are.

Thank you to @edgebaseballtraining and @premierbaseballkc for having me out and giving me the floor to run your players through #controlledarticularrotations. I have a lot of respect for coaches willing to learn about mobility, joint health and breaking the status quo.

Swipe left & watch BOTH videos for what my coworker @christacolwellzumbaqueen and I discovered about her ankles this morning! 🤓
▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
While doing our daily #CARs, we observed that she was unable to isolate rotating just her ankle...meaning that every time she did an ankle rotation, her hip and leg rotated along with it...meaning that her brain has trouble dissociating ankle rotation from knee rotation from hip rotation...meaning that she does NOT have independent control of each individual joint. Oh and did I mention that Christa is a Zumba instructor?!? 😱 That’s a lot of rotation getting all jumbled together. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
Fortunately Christa is dedicated to her craft and to keeping her body in tune. Now armed with new information and a variation that will help minimize the compensation, I’m positive she will make big leaps in her mobility and overall function in the coming months. 👊
Thanks for being a trooper Christa!

Cossack squats - Hips don't lie

I've Been hit with glandular fever over the last month or so (probably longer). Easing my way back into training with a massive emphasis on mobility -

Sunday movement morning. Also blasting Queen & David Bowie on the #BeoPlayA2 makes it exponentially better.
.
On the menu today: back roll, crawl, handstands, seated pulse pike, table rock, full bridges etcetera. I need to regain my compression strength in order to progress to skin the cat.

HIP MOBILITY 😊
*
*
*
Although I post mostly handstands, as well as calisthenics and core work and "fun stuff", (which I do train a ton of and are my my passion), my training involves a lot more! I also lift weights, a lot, and work a ton on hip mobility (not flexibility). Here are a few of my favorite hip mobility movements. These are influenced by @portal.ido .
*
I am not going to go into a whole detailed explanation and tutorial on IG here (sorry! It's just not what I do now😕... Maybe down the line I'll do some form of online training instruction, but for now I only do in person training). But a quick description- The first is the squat warm up sequence. This is condensed down a lot, and actually involves a lot more reps and time. The next one, starts to bring more balance and control (center of mass of balance point concept), and activation. These are way more brutal than they look! The third is bringing a dragon squat into it, and the start of linking movements together for a locomotion flow. Here we work both external and internal rotation of the hips. *
Although I have pretty open hips, I do not "stretch" a lot at all. I do work mobile movements a ton though. Having just flexibility, but no control or strength within that range of motion, does us no good. We must be able to activate muscles, and have control and strength within that range of motion. I have been able to not only maintain, but continue to gain more openness in hips than I ever have, despite all the squatting, deadlifting, and heavy lifting I do, because I had a solid base in hip mobility before I started lifting, and because I continue to work hip mobility all the time! And this goes beyond my structured training sessions. It's bringing mobile movement into daily life, all the time, everywhere, always. For example, don't sit on your ass, squat. I spend more time than I can keep track of, chilling in this low squat everyday. *

We ❤️ this.
.
Remember. EVERY SINGLE person has a different anatomical structure. Treatment and training needs to be utilized accordingly.
...
This is why we do whole body active mobility work --> to prepare your body for what you want/need it to do.
......
The ability to have movement variation within all your joints because you've built strength in all ranges is FAR MORE beneficial than training what you think is a single movement pattern. No movement is executed the EXACT same way when performed repeatedly.
.........
Doing an exercise or movement again and again and again with joints that don't work like joints are meant to, won't make you better at that movement -> fixing your shit will.
