GET A BETTER TRICEP PUMP
.
The pushdown is one of the most commonly used isolation exercises for the triceps. And it can be great for accumulating targeted volume to help drive muscle growth.💪🏻
.
When we're doing it though, we want to make sure we work the tricep to its peak contraction. But the problem we run into is that our hips ❌block us from getting to that point. So a quick modification you can do is to add a slight hip hinge first so you ✅clear your hips out of the way and are able to fully extend the arms. I also suggest stepping back slightly because as you hinge, your upper body will come forward slightly too, so the step back will keep the cable from being in your face.
.
Try it out, get a better contraction, and subsequently a better pump.

HOW TO WALK AGAIN AFTER LEG DAY
[recovery tip]
.
Few days ago I gave you guys the ultimate leg warm-up routine! Here's a little routine by my good friend @dr.jacob.harden you can use to get yourself moving again after a heavy leg day!💃
.
We've all experienced the joy and pain of DOMS after a hard lower body training session. Whether you have a bro split, upper/lower, P/P/L, or some form of DUP, you've probably felt it the next day at some point.😣
.
And while shuffling along like an 👴🏻old man or woman is awesome and all, it's nice to be able to function like a healthy human being again.
.
Start out by getting some blood flow. I like to use the bike. Light jogs work well too though. Then hit up these dynamic stretches for the lower body. 10 to 20 reps of each one should have you up and walking again. I know it did for me.✌

⚡️⚡️⚡️Sciatica: Glute Max to Piriformis Connection
.
The sciatica nerve runs from each side of the lower spine through the deep buttock into the back of the thigh reaching all the way down to the foot. It is considered one of the largest single nerve in the body. It's function is to connect the spinal cord with the leg and foot muscles. Any pain or neurological symptoms felt along this path is referred to as sciatica. There are many causes of sciatica pain since it's path ranges from the lower back to the foot and anywhere along that path can be trapped.
.
Piriformis syndrome is a common cause of sciatica pain. The piriformis is a muscle that attaches to the anterior part of the sacrum and reaches horizontally to the femur. It's function is to externally rotate and also to centralize the femur into the hip socket with the other deep six muscles of the hip. Since the sciatica nerve runs behind the piriformis it can get entrapped and cause sciatica pain when this muscle spasms and compresses the nerve. A common relationship we find is between the glute max and piriformis. Since the piriformis is also a hip extensor(secondary role) it can potentially overwork for the glute max(primary hip extensor). When this happens you get lots of pain, pain, pain down the sciatica. So besides releasing the piriformis and stretching it(pigeon stretch), restoring function to the glute max through activation afterwards could be the key to resolving your sciatica pain.

FUTUREPROOF YOUR HAMSTRINGS (1/3)
[eccentrics: easy]
.
Happy Monday everyone! Today is a post about the good ole hammies. 🐷 Our goal with our rehab is to progressively strengthen the muscle group in a functional way, so with that being said, I'll be posting a few progressions of this as well over the next week or so.
.
Today is the easiest of the progressions - our goal here is to activate the muscle group in a functional way. This means that it is being used the way its supposed to be used. .
The hamstrings functionally will allow us to extend the hip in 'loaded' or stretched position.
.
The result is the activity demonstrated in the video above:
👉🏼With your heel in contact with the ground, drive it into the floor to activate the hamstrings.
👉🏼Bend forward at the hips (hip flexion) to lengthen the hamstring and bias its activation. This is an eccentric contraction (lengthening but still contracting)
👉🏼Return to the starting position purely from activation of the hamstrings via a concentric contraction (shortening of the muscle).
👉🏼If you're able, perform a complete step through motion with just the hamstring activation. This is much harder than it seems.
.
Anyway, this is the first building block to some higher level exercises that I will be posting in a collab with @kaitlin.physio in the next week or so!
.
Tag someone with weak hamstrings! Comment below what you think 🤔 .

✳️LEVATOR SCAP NECK STRETCHES - Ep.160 [Treatment Protocol]
.
↩️Last week we mentioned the muscle ‘Levator Scapulae’ as one of the top muscles causing neck pain at work. Courtesy the demo from @dr.natalielopez, here are 3 stretches and lacrosse ball releases 💥 for this muscle. . 👉Remember the Levator scap runs from the outer border of the C1-C4 vertebra ➡️to the upper inner border of the scapula. Most of the stretches involve lengthening the neck, and reaching away with the arm. To stretch both attachments
.
1️⃣Basic Stretch - Hold onto sturdy object or chair (depressing the shoulder blade), rotate head away and down ↗️. Hold for 10s
.
2️⃣Standing Release - Place lacrosse ball at attachment of muscle near scapula (see diagram). Reach arm across and down, rotate head away and down. Repeat 5x
.
3️⃣Supine Release - Place ball at attachment while lying down. Go into glute bridge to increase pressure on area. Gently rotate head away. Hold for 5 seconds. This one’s intense 🔥🔥🔥 take it easy with it!
.
✳️GIVE THESE A TRY, Comment if you get the Stretch! .

FIXING ANT. PELVIC TILT 🔄!!
[joint mechanics]
.
Here’s a sneak peek of @hartrehab’s session with @misslauradavidson, where he helps fix her pelvis tilting issues
.
In the video we can see that she is in an anterior pelvic tilt at rest, and that she has a hard time getting into a full posterior pelvic tilt. Why? Well this could be due to different areas of muscular tension throughout the lower back and hips ( which we worked on ) but also her motor control
.
🚂 of 🧐 💡
If someone is spending the majority of time at one end of their available range of motion, and reinforcing that through movement/ exercise...how does their body “understand” how to get out of that position?
.
In some cases people can’t get out of that range and don’t have the body awareness to do any movement. Fortunate for Laura, she is able to get out of an anterior pelvic tilt, and we were able to assist it a bit more by placing her surrounding joints in a more optimal position 👍🏼
.
In this case- supination and external rotation of the feet helps to promote more of a posterior tilt at the pelvis
.
The result, she is now able to move into this new range easier. And for someone with low back pain, this can be super beneficial for them!!!

CORE ENGAGEMENT
[deadbug progressions]
#myocoreseries
.
Hey all! Continuing on with our talk on the core, here is a progression of the McGill curl up but also a few steps of how to progress to the often prescribed deadbug. I've found that a number of people perform the final form of this exercise right from the start without taking the proper consideration for how to perform the movement.
.
So what do we have to keep in mind:
👉🏼Low back flat on the floor
👉🏼No breath holding, exhale through the movement
👉🏼Slow and controlled movements (3second count each direction)
.
📝 Why do we do this exercise? Theorectically we want to activate the core musculature here. What we will find is that often times our head will shake quite a bit because we're challenging ourselves. That's a good thing! .
In addition, this will help us to, again - in theory, promote a posterior pelvic tilt. Now is this exercise the cure to back pain and preventing an anterior pelvic tilt (APT). By all means - no. We have to train our core in a number of variable angles and conditions to replicate the everyday forces we experience. Although the deadbug is one way to due that, it is a very controlled movement in a purely sagittal plane.🤷🏻‍♂️
.
But with all that said there are a few progressions we can incorporate as well! But that will be another post. 😏 .
Try this out and leave a comment about what you think! .

@Regranned from @dr.jacob.harden - HOW FORWARD HEAD POSTURE STRESSES YOUR NECK

Think of your head and neck as being suspended on a guy wire system. A balance of tension side to side keeps everything stable and in place. But if balance is lost, one side ends up supporting more load than the other.
.
That guy wire system in the neck is the SCM and Levator Scapulae. They balance the tension from front to back. As we hold our head forward more and more, the SCM becomes slacked (and tight over time) and the Levator ends up supporting our head much like the red band does in this video.⤴🎬
.
Hopefully this makes it easy to see how that Levator can become overloaded very quickly. It can handle being a little off (as I said, some FHP is fine), but the more that weight drifts forward the more stress the Levator starts to feel. That's where our problems set in.
.
But it's the balance that causes the stress not the Levator itself. So while your first though may be to stretch the back of your neck, it's mostly just a short term band aid. The long term fix is in rebalancing system so you unload the neck.⚖
.
So think about that weight and those bands next time you spend hours on your computer or staring down at your phone. Take a break to rebalance every now and then. Your neck will thank you for it.🙌😄

MOST RECENT

ARE YOU USING YOUR CHEST WHEN PERFORMING A PUSH-UP?
(Long Post)🙄
.
Most people when they are performing a push up they are not actually activation their chest. They are using other muscles to compensate for the chest so they can "DO A PUSH-UP". The problem with this; is that if continuously repeated can cause pain, stiffness, and decrease the range of motion within the shoulder.
.
HOW AM I DOING IT WRONG?😫
.
When you are not using your pectoral muscles your body needs to perform the task you are putting it through so it starts to use other smaller muscles like the upper traps, triceps, anterior deltoids, and hips. These muscles might be useful to get your first push up👍 but you can't always rely on them, they are not made to be a primary mover (besides isolation movements). Your pectoral muscles should be the primary mover during this movement because it is one of the largest muscle groups in the upper body so it can create the strongest contraction and push the most weight.
.
THE ELEVATED ⬆️ PUSH-UP
.
This is an exercise that is not used enough, not just for novice exercisers but for advanced as well because most of the time they are still compensating in some way.
.
When you are on the floor it can be very hard to retrain the body to push through the pectorals because the chest may not have been active for a long time or they are weak and your chest can push you up off the floor. That is where the elevated push-up comes in, it helps decrease the load on the pecs and making it easier to not compensate for the movement.
.
TIPS✒️
.
1️⃣ Set up a bar or box just under hip height
2️⃣ Place both hands just outside shoulder width
3️⃣ Focus on the pectoral muscles (it might take a lot of mental thought to push through the chest)
4️⃣ Make sure when you are locking your elbows, do not anteriorly rotate the shoulder (Don't round your shoulders forward)
.
This will help retrain the body how to move and decrease the overuse of the upper traps, triceps and shoulders, increasing shoulder movement and decreasing the risk of pain or injury.
.
Thank you to @co_chibbetts for demonstrating this exercise for me. 👍

The Russian Twist ➿➿
.
Are you twisting in your Russian Twist? 🇷🇺 .
Things not to do during this exercise: ❌
.
1️⃣ No torso rotation❌
2️⃣ Moving only the arms❌
3️⃣ Little core engagement ❌
.
Things to do during this exercise: ✅
.
1️⃣ Full torso rotation (keeping spine neutral and not over rotating) ✅
2️⃣ Engaging core (take tension off the back)✅
3️⃣ Legs are down (for beginners-intermediate) as a step toward them being off the ground ✅
.
Variations of the Russian Twist 🧐👈🏽
.
It's important to keep the lumbar and cervical spine sections "neutral," or straight, during the twist. .
People who have weak lower backs should start performing Russian Twists while sitting on a chair or bench, keeping the hands gripped on the sides of the chair.
This aids in keeping the back straight.
.
Advanced exercisers can make Russian Twists more difficult by holding a weight in both hands, keeping the arms straight out in front during the twist.

Double tap and tag a friend that may need help with their Russian Twist ❤️🙋🏽‍♂️ Thanks for watching guys!! If you guys have any videos you'd like to see, let me know in the comments below.

SNOWBOARD VS. SKIING🏂⛷
(Muscle Use Comparison)
.
With the first real snow fall in Toronto❄️, lets look at my two favourite winter sports (yup, I like them both!). The same muscles are often used, but to varying degrees and in different ways for each sport.
.
SKIING
- Hamstrings & quads to bend & stabilize knees to prevent ACL tears - ankles/feet/calves to turn skis out and put on edge
- glutes help bending at the hip and turning your leg outwards so your knees don't collapse in
- (arms to use poles to drag yourself along flat surfaces at bottom...WORST part😫)
.
SNOWBOARDING
- Hamstrings & quads to get the board moving & stabilize, make turns
- Calves to control the tilt of the board prevent from falling forward/backwards
- Intrinsic foot & ankle muscles for balance
- (arms to push yourself up from sitting..also the worst part)
✨Core is used for balance/stability in both!✨

FUTUREPROOF YOUR HAMSTRINGS
[Part 2: Exercise Ball Eccentrics]
.
Here’s the follow up from yesterday’s post by @kaitlin.physio . Bridge with stability ball ➕/➖ hamstring curl💪🏼
.
1️⃣ Double leg bridge on stability ball: this exercise is essentially a static or isometric contraction of the hamstring group. Isometric contractions are contractions in which the muscle is not shortening or lengthening. These contractions are used at points in rehab where heavy concentric (shortening the muscle) or eccentric (lengthening the muscle) contractions may not be indicated because they could further damage the muscles
2️⃣ Single leg bridge with stability ball: a step up from #1. Similar concept, but more challenge because you are only using 1 leg to stabilize
3️⃣ Double leg bridge with hamstring curl: this time you are incorporating concentric and eccentric contractions. The concentric component occurs when bringing the ball toward your body (bending the knees). The eccentric component occurs when moving the ball alway from your body (straightening your legs)
4️⃣ Single leg bridge with hamstring curl: similar concept to #3 as both concentric and eccentric contractions are occurring, obviously more challenging with 1 leg versus 2
.
Why the stability ball? The stability ball adds in perturbations (disturbances of motion)🌪to make the exercises more difficult and challenge the hamstrings

Lower back pain? 🤔 Try these three exercises to help open up the hips and take some pressure off of you lower back. These exercises will also help with knee pain. CREDITS: @vinnierehab #myodetox

Give this 'ROTATIONAL SITTING HIP STRETCH' a go & prevent unecessary injuries 😉. ⭐Let me know how you rate this stretch with 👍 or 👎 in the COMMENTS. ⭐ ⭐Please LIKE and SHARE with 🤝 friends ⭐ ⭐

A massively overlooked, and undervalued, aspect of the legs this muscle group seriously needs more looking after.
Making up 22.5% of the total mass of the leg musculature, it is perhaps not surprising to learn that the adductor complex of muscles are not simply responsible for adduction.
The feared muscle group of all football and hockey players, key adductors (pectineus and adductor brevis) also assist hip flexion, hip extension (adductor magnus). Often overlooked, is their role in hip stabilisation. Cooperating with the abductors the adductors also provide side-to-side stabilization of the pelvis.
Therefore unhappy adductors can be the root cause of chronic groin pain and in some cases can be a key contributor to knee or lower back discomfort. So be mindful of this muscle group and pay them the respect they justly deserve! ⭐With all of this in mind start stretching and avoid acute injury or long term chronic pain⭐ #adductors #gymnastics #ballet.#piriformis #fascialstretchtherapy  #yoga  #crossfit #flexibility #mobility  #prehab  #rehab #stretch #stretching #myodetox  #fitness #stronger #conditioning  #pilates #injuryfree #recovery  #running #cycling #physio #chiro #massagetherapy #myofascialrelease #training #injury #massage

💥 CLEAN EATING THE GOOD AND THE BAD 💥
📊 Ok, so this week I ran a poll on what people thought was the best approach to nutrition, flexible dieting vs clean eating.
-
🎖️ Flexible dieting won (88% to 12%) which I thought it would, but that doesn't mean it's the best approach for everyone, clean eating has its place for certain individuals. -
🔓 I'm not married to one specific way of thinking, everyone is different and while I use flexible dieting with 80% of my clients and myself, nothing is perfect and clean eating is what some people will insist on using when they become clients, which is fine. I stand by take an approx to nutrition and training that will allow longevity and sustainability. -

🍕for 💭| "Every change in the function of a bone is followed by certain definite changes in internal architecture and external conformation in accordance to mathematical laws" - Wolff
What this means is that our bones will adapt to the loads under which they are placed. Posture, movement patterns⛹🏋🏿🚴🏽, and the effect of gravity⬇️ are the main stressor for bones.
If we expand this concept to the connective tissue that encase our whole body we can see how this will similarly impact our fascia, muscles💪, ligaments and tendons. 🤔So how does this affect you? If you sit for long periods or only train a specific plane of movement, your connective tissue will conform to that shape. If you sit hunched over for too long, your body will stay hunched when you stand up and move. (📝@joerehab) TAG SOMEONE who's always hunched over their phone!!! 📱🙊 #Myodetox #rehabordietrying

⚡️⚡️⚡️Sciatica: Glute Max to Piriformis Connection
.
The sciatica nerve runs from each side of the lower spine through the deep buttock into the back of the thigh reaching all the way down to the foot. It is considered one of the largest single nerve in the body. It's function is to connect the spinal cord with the leg and foot muscles. Any pain or neurological symptoms felt along this path is referred to as sciatica. There are many causes of sciatica pain since it's path ranges from the lower back to the foot and anywhere along that path can be trapped.
.
Piriformis syndrome is a common cause of sciatica pain. The piriformis is a muscle that attaches to the anterior part of the sacrum and reaches horizontally to the femur. It's function is to externally rotate and also to centralize the femur into the hip socket with the other deep six muscles of the hip. Since the sciatica nerve runs behind the piriformis it can get entrapped and cause sciatica pain when this muscle spasms and compresses the nerve. A common relationship we find is between the glute max and piriformis. Since the piriformis is also a hip extensor(secondary role) it can potentially overwork for the glute max(primary hip extensor). When this happens you get lots of pain, pain, pain down the sciatica. So besides releasing the piriformis and stretching it(pigeon stretch), restoring function to the glute max through activation afterwards could be the key to resolving your sciatica pain.

LATISSIMUS DORSI RELEASE
.
The Lats (broad back muscle) are a big powerful muscle that attaches to your pelvis, connecting to the thoracolumbar fascia then reaching up and spanning across the T-Spine and eventually grabbing the inferior angle of your scapula and humerus. .
It function to medially rotate, extend and adduct the arm. When restricted can decrease ROM in flexion and abduction and also pain in the inferior angle of the shoulder blade. It can also cause mid back pain and lower back pain near the abdomen. If it is highly restricted with trigger points it can also cause pain along the inner arm all the way down to the pinky side of the hand and the 4th and 5th fingers.
.
To release this muscle follow the video. Make sure you treat the entire length of the muscle from top(close to the arm pit) to bottom. Find tender points and work on it for 30 secs to a min. You may need to visit this muscle twice a day for a few weeks for it to fully release. Follow my wife @lamjessfit for a lat stretch tomorrow after this release. Tag a friend with tights lats and share the wealth!! #Myodetox #rehab #prehab

It's okay to be nervous instead of fighting that anxiety dance with it, it shows you care! I was nervous but also excited because I knew about the preparation I put into. I would like to apologise for the lighting and a huge thank you to @richresultstraining really appreciate it!
Great atmosphere in the gym @thesci
The reason why this feels so sweet because I tried this 12 weeks ago but didn't go to plan but this time OH YES!

128kg achieved had three other attempts before hand

120 x1
123x1
125x1
You might be able to pick me up the conversation but we was saying 128kg moved alright out the whole it felt heavy but walking out felt fine. So we was discussing possibly trying 130kg but because 128kg moved a bit slow out of the whole decided so against it. Vote on my story if I had 130kg but I know for a fact 140kg I'm coming for you! Working forward will definitely be doing other variations as in box squats.
I had 125kg in mind before hand but got more 🙌

[deadbug progressions]
#myocoreseries
.
Hey all! Continuing on with our talk on the core, here is a progression of the McGill curl up but also a few steps of how to progress to the often prescribed deadbug. I've found that a number of people perform the final form of this exercise right from the start without taking the proper consideration for how to perform the movement.
.
So what do we have to keep in mind:
👉🏼Low back flat on the floor
👉🏼No breath holding, exhale through the movement
👉🏼Slow and controlled movements (3second count each direction)
.
📝 Why do we do this exercise? Theorectically we want to activate the core musculature here. What we will find is that often times our head will shake quite a bit because we're challenging ourselves. That's a good thing! .
In addition, this will help us to, again - in theory, promote a posterior pelvic tilt. Now is this exercise the cure to back pain and preventing an anterior pelvic tilt (APT). By all means - no. We have to train our core in a number of variable angles and conditions to replicate the everyday forces we experience. Although the deadbug is one way to due that, it is a very controlled movement in a purely sagittal plane.🤷🏻‍♂️
.
But with all that said there are a few progressions we can incorporate as well! But that will be another post. 😏 .

NY State of Mind 🗽

Just had one of the most amazing trips to the big apple this weekend ✌🏼
.
I sat in on the MDX-System course with @vinnierehab and @adam__rehab dropping knowledge 💣’s all weekend, and had the opportunity to share industry stories with rehab colleagues from all over the 🌎 at our FutureProof NYC Event 👥
.
But wait, there’s more! I ate some deceivingly heavy 🍚 pudding with the crew, but more importantly I spent 2 days taking in the NY Christmas experience with the real MVP @klarachenlo 😂
.
But the biggest difference this time? I spent a lot of time by myself just roaming the streets of Manhattan, not sure what to expect with each turn. It was nice to be able to reflect in a city that truly speaks to me. The best ideas always come when you don’t have noise 💡

FUTUREPROOF YOUR HAMSTRINGS (1/3)

Today is a post about the good ole hammies. 🐷 Our goal with our rehab is to progressively strengthen the muscle group in a functional way, so with that being said, I'll be posting a few progressions of this as well over the next week or so.
.
Today is the easiest of the progressions - our goal here is to activate the muscle group in a functional way. This means that it is being used the way its supposed to be used. .
The hamstrings functionally will allow us to extend the hip in 'loaded' or stretched position.
.
The result is the activity demonstrated in the video above:
👉🏼With your heel in contact with the ground, drive it into the floor to activate the hamstrings.
👉🏼Bend forward at the hips (hip flexion) to lengthen the hamstring and bias its activation. This is an eccentric contraction (lengthening but still contracting)
👉🏼Return to the starting position purely from activation of the hamstrings via a concentric contraction (shortening of the muscle).
👉🏼If you're able, perform a complete step through motion with just the hamstring activation. This is much harder than it seems.
.
Anyway, this is the first building block to some higher level exercises that I will be posting in a collab with @kaitlin.physio in the next week or so!
.
Tag someone with weak hamstrings! Comment below what you think 🤔 .

HEAL YOUR BROKEN SHOULDER!
[easy-moderate level]
.
If you play any sports that require one arm more than the other 🏀🏈⚾️🎾🏸🏓
or have shoulder pain / weakness in general, this is a great exercise for you!
.
Rotator cuff strengthening exercises such as this one are CRUCIAL to any good shoulder rehab plan
.
🖐🏼🎾Horizontal weighted ball catches in the 90/90 position target the very important "braking" muscles of the throwing/racquet arm
.
This teaches your arm how to decelerate the motion and in turn will future-proof your shoulder
.
Training deceleration is just as important as training acceleration!
.
This week after I release the final glutes videos I will transition into doing full shoulder protocols! 🤘🏼

TLC for you TFL ❤️ @rachelk00
__
The Tensor Fasciae Latae muscle (TFL), located on the side of your pelvis, helps to stabilize your hip through its connection into a strip of tough connective tissue on your outer thigh called the iliotibial band (IT band). Stretching a chronically contracted TFL can help improve the range of motion of your hips.
__

When the TFL contracts, it engages the IT band. Hence its name, which means "tensor of the lateral fascia." By engaging the IT band, the TFL muscle stabilizes the pelvis and thigh. It also abducts the thigh, moving it away from the body, as well as internally rotating the thigh and flexing the hip. Therefore, refrain from rolling your IT band — it is a waste of time. Instead ask your practitioner or specialist whether you should be paying some attention to your TFL.

There are 4 versions of yourself at any given time.
Who you were.
Who you are.
Who you want to be.
& Who you will be.
@alphonsedle @vmpre_ @julianmorales & I had a talk about something similar the other night. Lately I've been repeatedly cycling through certain thoughts and trying to take control of a sort of internal battle I have going on in my head, and honestly, I've kinda been losing. Can I overcome this? Do I even want to? Who knows. Even I don't know. It's definitely a character building struggle, for better or worse. We only stop evolving when we stop trying to expand our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

FOAMROLL YOUR BACK PAIN AWAY!!! [beginner-moderate]
.
I'll keep my caption short tonight, because 👻Stranger Things Season 2 is calling my name 😂!
.
💎MEGA SECRET TIP ALERT that most people don't know! Want to relieve your back pain? All you need to do is balance out your pelvis!!
.
Here's a foam-rolling protocol designed to realign your pelvis by resetting all the muscles surrounding it!
.
⛔️Notice that I DO NOT foam roll the lower back! It is not a good idea if you have back pain (but if you don't, it's an okay exercise to do!)
.
Make sure you go slow and roll out for at least 30 secs per segment. I went a little faster to fit it under a minute
.
I like to use a Vyper 2.0 from @hyperice because the vibrating feature allows me to ease into the tissue easier and I don't have to move as much when rolling to get the same release. I'll be giving a few of them out throughout the week so check me on IG story errday for the giveaway!
.
Anyways much ♥️ MyoTribe! Time to get back to stranger tings 🤘🏼 Any of you watch the show??

AN EASY WAY TO TREAT ANTERIOR SHIN SPLINTS 😃
(Imbalances/Tight Muscles)
.
Do you suffer from anterior shin splint? This is a very common injury for people that perform high impact activities like running and jumping.
.
WHAT ARE SHIN SPLINTS?🤔
.
They occur when the muscle has small tears, inflammation of the muscle, or inflammation of the periosteum. You would not experience all of these at once, it would be one of these symptoms.
.
BUT WHY DO I GET THEM?🤨
.
There are many reasons why you could be experiencing anterior shin splints, dysfunction in the ankle and foot, muscle imbalance between the calf muscles and tibialis anterior. .
HOW DO I GET RID OF THEM?😫
.
You need to work on increasing your mobility through your calves, ankles, and tibialis anterior. So help stretch the calves I would use the same technique I used in my previous post on releasing the tibialis posterior. For the tibialis anterior I would first use my @myofascial_releaser before stretching to help release some of the tension in the muscle. This breaks down the fascia built up in that area making the muscle more susceptible to stretching that will last.
.
If you are using this myofascial tool make sure you stay away from the shin bone (tibia), only use it on soft tissue. Metal on bone is never a nice feeling.😋

Benefits of the Arch 💫👈🏽
.
Regular Arch-For most people, just generally having their chest up/shoulders down will be enough of an arched position to set their shoulders properly and work through a full ROM
.
For those competing in Powerlifting; however, we’d encourage even more of an arch to reduce that range of motion since the goal is to lift as much weight as possible

Here are some great unilateral exercises demonstrated by my wife @lamjessfit. Give her a follow for more yoga, strength. and workout inspo! Thanks To my puppy @lokidogofmischief_ 🐶 for his assistance. All 4.5lbs Of added weight
Like every exercise, there are many variations out there to suite your needs and goals. Here, @lamjessfit tends to hinge forward more (more of a forward lean) and recruits more glutes and hamstrings, while driving up through the middle of her foot.
And like in pretty much every exercise, ensure proper neck and spine alignment, core braced, breathe, hips squared and stabilized. #Myodetox #prehab #rehab

Another incredible experience with @myodetox this past weekend at MDX System-1. Our instructors @vinnierehab and @adam__rehab are two of the best in the game.🙌🏻🙏🏻

🤘DYNAMIC CALF STRETCH🤘
.
[3D stretching]
.
When we walk🚶‍♂️, run 🏃‍♀️or play sports⛹️‍♂️, the movement is always complex and in multiple planes of motion (refer to my previous post on planes of motion).
.
So why should stretching be any different🤔?!
.
This stretch is able to hit multiple fiber ↗️➡️↘️⬇️directions of the gastrocnemius (calf) muscle. Add in the bouncing and you get a representation of how daily movements consist of acceleration and deceleration.
.
Dynamic stretching is beneficial because it mimics real life situations where our muscles are constantly lengthening and contracting to adapt to our surroundings.
.
Add some hip rotations↪️ at the end range of this stretch and you will also target🎯 the transverse plane of motion!
.
Give these a try and let me know how it feels!👍
.
Also, tag some friends that need a new and improved calf stretch🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏻‍♂️

ATENCIÓN CON LA POSICIÓN AL DORMIR !!
.
Los últimos días he cubierto aspectos del dolor de espalda matutino para quienes duermen de espaldas o de costado, pero ¿y los que duermen boca abajo?
.
A pesar de que podemos comenzar de espaldas, a menudo volteamos y volteamos durante la noche y terminamos boca abajo.
Entonces, ¿cómo termina esto? Ahí es donde tenemos nuestra mejor foto ❌
.
1️⃣ podemos ver que la colocación de la cabeza demasiado baja en una almohada causará más curva (lordosis cervical) y una rotación en el lado del cuerpo solamente. Imagínese sentado en el sofá y viendo la televisión a propósito con la cabeza girada hacia un lado durante 8 horas.

2️⃣Con la parte superior de tu cuerpo sobre una almohada, nuestra región lumbar va a reaccionar de forma natural, haciendo que nuestra curva lumbar (lordosis lumbar) sea mucho más evidente. Imagínese levantarse e inclinarse solo a través de su espalda baja para mirar el cielo durante un largo período de tiempo. Simplemente suena doloroso.
Entonces, ¿cómo podemos ayudar a reducir el efecto negativo en nuestro cuello y espalda? ✅

3️⃣ Como en mis publicaciones anteriores, podemos usar una almohada o una cuña para ayudar a mantener nuestra columna vertebral en una posición más neutral. La cantidad de almohadas que tendrá que usar variará de persona a persona, dependiendo de su propia construcción y de la firmeza de las almohadas.
4️⃣Para nuestro cuello, lo que podemos hacer aquí es deslizar un poco más sobre la almohada (o de nuevo usar una cuña) que permita que nuestro cuello salga de esa posición extendida (lordótica). La desventaja de esta posición es que tu cabeza aún está girada hacia un lado.
En general, NO recomendaría dormir en el estómago a nadie con dolor de espalda y/o cuello, o si está naturalmente en una postura APT (inclinación pélvica anterior) pero nuevamente, un cambio no ocurre durante la noche, entonces estos son algunos trucos para usar mientras tanto.
