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 nowπŸ˜•... 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. *

#RTS athletes getting their #FRC CARs work in between strength sets. #mobilitynotflexibility #buildathletes #makemonsters @drandreospina

Just here, working on ranges and stuff. After I loosened up I practiced some distracted couch stretch with lift-offs. After that, and then some glute/ankle prep I did the following.

Front squat 135x5, 3 sets
TRX IYT, 3 each, 3 sets
Half kneeling, single arm, bottoms up KB, overhead press, 25x6, 3 sets

And then 3 sets of the following,

Feet elevated, ring push up x 5, 2 sec pause at bottom & top
Single arm, bent over, KB row, 50x6 ea
Marching, sandbag shoulder carry walking lunge, 50# & 100#, 60'

And then all the bretzel stretches 1, 2 & 3.

Does your pelvis move your leg for you? Your body is smart, it always goes for the path of least resistance. In the case of tight hips, the path of least resistance often comes in the form of movement from the lumbar spine and pelvis. -

For example, when extending your leg behind you, you'll often tilt your back and pelvis to get your leg back. Or doing mobility work such as hip circles, does your pelvis circle along with you?
_

Try this: On your hands and knees, start to move your knee in a large circle. Try to keep your pelvis as still as possible to drive as much movement into your hip joint.... Instead of your pelvis helping to move the leg.

_

To really see how much your pelvis might want to help out, place a block on your low back like the beautiful @keltiedb is doing here. Don't let your pelvis and low back get all the fun, your hip joints want to join the party too! πŸ’œ .

Today ay the mobility session, we explored and worked with some concepts related to loaded progressive stretching. It was a hard session, thank you everyone for coming!

Mobility! Working it in, in between sets. .
.
Low tension hip CARs are great for in between squat sets to keep the joints fluid.
.
.
I added some shifting side lunges between deadlift sets to work the lateral and medial tissues but also help keep grooving towards better ROM in the position!

Just got this sent from colleagues of mine in England:

Hello. Here's cross crawl supermans being done in mobility class here in Alnwick Northumberland, England. They are new to movement so just getting used to it :) BOOM.
Love it guys!!!! Keep it up! #health #healing #neverstopmoving #mobilitynotflexibility #wellness #training #strength #performance #movement #sandiego #california #tommyjohn #rehab #therapy #barefoot #physicaltherapy #workout #crosscrawlsupermans

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.

πŸ€ΈπŸ»β€β™‚οΈSTRICT RING MUSCLE UP πŸ’

Many consider the ring muscle up the pinnacle of body weight strength and ring movements. However this tool actually turns into an efficient way to get yourself above the rings where the fun really begins. Limiting yourself to muscle ups on the rings is like limiting yourself to bicep curls with dumbbells.

Happy #internationaldayofyoga while travelling for work i packed my travel yoga mat & spent some time here tonight. The last 3 months+ of going through my yoga teacher training has been so amazing & has given me more than i thought it would. Yes, my poses have become better (and still have a ways to go), but my mind & sprit has evolved so much! Looking forward to the next step with my #yogajourney #yyc #yoga #mobilitynotflexibility #strong #fitness

*movement mashup* mobility class tomorrow at 6pm @royalcitycrossfit .

Force is how we communicate to our cells to alter composition of our connective tissue. Moving LITERALLY changes or DNA...
γ€°
By actively and intent-fully applying forces to our cells trough movement, we create USEABLE mobility.

Train your body for what makes you happy. Work on individual joints to gain control and strength (mobility) over them. Having patience and correcting the cause of your movement inefficiencies will help you to achieve all your movement goals.

My happy is gymnastic bodies training πŸ€ΈπŸ»β€β™€οΈ- Here I am doing tuck crunches and weighted standing windmills - both of which would not be suitable without having adequate hip and shoulder capsule range, strength and control.

Do you possess the joint integrity needed for you job, sport or simply everyday life even? πŸ€” If not - contact us now ^^^

Working on my hamstring and spinal mobility with some (extremely) cautiously light eccentric only Jefferson curls. I can't see this is an exercise I would ever give to a client (muscoskeletally healthy or not), but I'm happy to put my own body on the line lol. I think when I can do 16-20kg to the floor with proper spinal segmentation I'll shelve these (and even then I'm not 100% on that much range in my hamstrings/low back is going to help my powerlifting #easternstrength #amonamarth #throughblooddirtandbone #jefferson #jeffersoncurl #deadlift #spinalflexion #spineflexion #powerlifting #hamstrings #lowback #erectors #mobility #flexibility #mobilitynotflexibility
