Had to mute cause of the obscenities I was yelling but yeah my aqua therapist taught me this: how to relax/release your TFL #tensorfasciaelatae and damn does this make a world of difference do it for like 2 minutes though, you can take breaks if it gets to be too much but I low key love it cause it feels good and bad at the same time lol #ptdiaries

A quick video on how to hit the #TFL muscle - find 2 trigger points on the lateral hip just south of the waistband and then do a windshield wiper with the lower leg. Mobility is a huge part of my training and keeping me healthy. I try to stick to a mobility schedule of glute/adductors 3x a week and quads/back 3x a week. All other muscle groups are add-ons based on soreness and time! Thanks @acumobility @topoathletic and @reebok for the free swag! #tensorfasciaelatae #nowiwantalatte #sprintingmuscles #movebetternow

Buzz ๐Ÿwords: IT band and fascia
-
I understand the fascination with fascia. It's incredibly cool.
What I don't understand is the fitness industry's obsession with stretching the IT Band and releasing fascia. -

Simply, they are both unique tissues and are proven to be as strong as steel aka mathematically impossible to manipulate with foam or fingers. -

Seeing the tip of the iceberg started during my time in a cadaver lab with @muvintegrated -

This picture is an example of an IT Band 'tightness' solution- isometrics!
(More to come on the blog!)

Releasing tension within the tissues that surround the #iliotibialtract or #itband can be tricky and testing in a yoga practice. However, it's worth the effort and this week in all of my Red Hot 1/2 classes, this region is our focus. Opening up our abductors, internal and external rotators, we'll provide some relief to this seemingly stubborn part of the body, and learn how to protect the knees when working towards external rotation of the hip. So thrilled to see such a great turnout of yogis in the hot room and Rocket given the current hot weather. In all my years teaching specifically hot yoga, I can happily say in my humble opinion it's one of the best environments for the joints of the body.

Do you know what your TFL is? It can be the cause of pain or tightness in your hips!
Check out my blog post for the info!! #tensorfasciaelatae #tighthips #fitnesscoach

Bothered by tight outer hips? A lot of us have tightness in our TFL (tensor fascia latae), often due to the amount of sitting in our modern lifestyle. A really effective technique you may wish to try involves using a yoga strap (or belt, scarf, etc) across the bottom of your foot of elevated leg. Cross the midline (imagine taking right leg to 11 o'clock). To really get into the TFL, externally rotate your hip (toes out/heel in) and then take leg across midline ....it's a subtle, yet powerful and effective way to target your cranky TFL. Give it a try for sweet relief ๐ŸŒ€ *

----the #iliotibialband (also know as the iliotibialtract)----..... is a tough and dense connective tissue. It blends away from the #tensorfasciaelatae or TFL & #gluteusmaximus #๐Ÿ‘inserting down into the outer #knee ...It is necessary for ITB to be taut for general activities such as walking #๐Ÿšถ making it a challenging anatomical structure to #stretch there are various authors who question if the structure is actually possible to stretch. ITB can become inflamed especially in activities that are typically aggravated by friction of the band moving across soft tissues on the lateral side of the thigh. Travell and Simon's advise to watch out for a trochanteric bursitis diagnosis or knee pain, it may infact be the underlying cheeky little #monkeys #๐Ÿ™Š originating from the TFL or ITB
In my client today I noted his left sacro-iliac joint was down #โฌ‡ which would make sense using a tennis ball to balance the pelvis pushing the sacro-iliac joint #โฌ† the #hamstring also needed some soft tissue manipulation
