  • Don’t let the opinion of others drag you down, shine so bright you blind them with your shine, the ONLY reason people make fun of you,or mock you is because they do not shine within themselves. To walk tall and love yourself! Be proud of all your a accomplishments, now that is a reason to smile. Don’t listen the the noise that some people make because the have jealousy and self hatred. Be kind to them,but shine on my beautiful stars, everyone is usually fighting a battle we don’t understand. Be kind to others, instead of self hatred and bullying others that do well, start following what they do, believe in yourself, set goals, get inspired! And watch how magical your life gets! .

  • Guyssss. Only 8 days to go 😮😮 I must say, I'm just so excited to get on stage. Super nervous and obviously a bit scared, but that's OK. I'm proud of myself for getting this far. Now it's the last stretch and then lights, camera, action!

  • Debes arder.
Debes quemar tu “yo” del pasado.
Debes renacer de esas cenizas.
Estamos muy perdidos en las cosas exteriores. Tanto que desconocemos muchas cosas (o casi todo) de nuestro interior. Puedes “conocer” o creer que sabes mucho porque tienes mas memoria que el otro. Lo que llamamos “inteligencia” no es más que buena memoria. El niño que se alimenta sin saber cómo, es inteligente; el pez que nada sin saberlo. La inteligencia es intrínseca en la naturaleza. No nos conocemos a nosotros pero conocemos el celular, conocemos de tecnología, farándulas, películas, música y noticias... ¡ Que conveniente para los de arriba!
Podemos llegar a saber cuantas manzanas tiene un árbol. Pero nunca podremos saber cuantos arboles están dentro  de una manzana. Sus semillas son vida. 
Y así se nos pasa todo siempre. 
Mirando todo por encima, superficialmente, sin profundizar en nada. La vida está hecha para la profundización. Para el autoconocimiento y para la evolución y el crecimiento. Pero llevamos cosas, cargas, pasados que aún no miramos. Qué esquivamos, que ignoramos. Pero siguen ahí.
¿Qué podemos hacer? Morir en pasado, morir en sufrimiento, dejar todo eso. Y renacer. Quemar el pasado y volver a surgir como un nuevo ser. Más fresco, Más libre, más humano...
Más que para alguien en especial. esto es para mí. Todos debemos aprender. .

  • Here is a sneak peak of my last visit with Gators to optimize their brain-body connection . . 💎 The main aspects of the postural control system are posture and balance. In order for this system to work correctly, it requires the position of the body segments with feedback from its surrounding environment to create an equilibrium during movement. . .

Athletes require information from the soles of their feet, eyes, and jaw posture to stabilize themselves and maintain postural balance.  If their body’s proprioception are out of balance, an athletes perception of the environment changes, and the entire body attempts to compensate for that phenomenon, leading to muscle imbalances, injury and biomechanical restrictions . . . .

After working on improving the input to the brain 🧠 by targeting foot 🦶🏿 proprioception, eye 👁 tracking thought sports vision, as you can see, results are immediate! 👊 .

If we can improve proprioception through a brain-based approach then we create a strategy for long-term and permanent changes 💯💯💯Special thanks to @k5allen1 for being such a good sport and to his strength coach Preston Greene for setting this up. You rock! . . 💪 WANT TO LEARN MORE?

  • POSTURE AND STRENGTH (@posturepro)
.
.

You can’t built a house on a crooked foundation!!! The same goes for your body. If the body is misaligned, it cannot perform optimally. You won’t be able to lift at peak capacity, and you’ll be exposing yourself to injury every time you load up 🏋🏿‍♀️ .
.
🧐But where do imbalances REALLY come from? Find out in this in  in-depth webinar Posture and Strength💪, as we take you to the origin of postural imbalances and introduce you how to address these issues and realign your posture .
.
You’ll learn the main neurological pathways that influence movement and how to hack your nervous system to improve performance .
.
🧠Once you’re able to hack into the brain, you can change the way the body moves and begin to correct your client’s posture and functional movement patterns
.
.

What’s included?
.
. 💎How the human brain works to influence posture
. 💎The main neurological pathways for movement, and activation patterns of neural mechanisms . 💎How to integrate corrective protocols into your program design to maximize results
. 💎How to instantly increase your shoulder flexion, mobility, your squat, your bench press, your chin-ups, etc., . 💎Integration of primitive reflex for better movement patterns
💎More brain more gains 👊🏻
.
. .
✅ Set yourself up for success by working on the brain posture for strength. .

  • CHECK YOUR SHOES 👟!!!!! ( 
The Flexor Hallucis Brevis Muscle is located in the sole of the foot and joins in the cuboid bone of the foot .
.

This muscle extends across the sole of the foot and attaches to the base of the big toe
.
. ✅ The function of flexor hallucis brevis muscle is to facilitate movement of the big toe, helps with flexing and curling of the toes and also plays an important role of the arching of the foot .
.

People with low arches may tend to “overpronate,” which means the foot rotates too far inward ⤵️ with each step you take .
.
📛 Due to its location the flexor hallucis brevis is prone to strains and injuries .
. 👟 Wearing shoes that are too narrow and tight can  cause a strain or injury to this muscle this is why it is super important to make sure that your shoes can accommodate your toes .
.

As a rule of thumb 👍always look for these three tips:
.
.

1️⃣ remove the insert form your shoes 👟 
2️⃣ your shoes must be flexible 
3️⃣ the forefoot must be must be large enough to accommodate the toes .
. 🏃🏻‍♂️Athletes involved in running and sprinting and people who have a job where they have to stand for prolonged periods of time are prone to flexor hallucis brevis pain caused due to strains or injuries .
.
Make sure to check out my other video on improving foot proprioception. Ultimately changing faulty foot motor patterns is the permanent way to go! 💪 .

  • FIX THIS NOW!!!![@posturepro] .
.
The function of the adductors is to adduct the femur toward the midline, but they also assist hip flexion and extension.
.
.

Tight adductors and inner thigh muscles can pull your knees into each other causing poor placement of the knees and even cause knee pain . It can even cause you to have patella dislocations. These stretches, coupled with VMO exercises, can help reduce injuries
.
. ⛔️Many groin injuries develop because of poor tissue quality through this area. What tends to occur is the adductors become fibrotic and develop adhesions because they are weak or overworked. A length tension assessment will be able to determine if you need soft tissue treatment in this area.
.
. 🙌 If your adductors are restricted, it is difficult to externally rotate at the the hip, meaning you produce less torque and do not recruit the correct muscles. This has a negative effect on total force produced. .
.

Another reason why it is important to address this area is because tight adductors can contribute to an anterior tilt - pushing your center of gravity forward and causes muscle tension. .. 👉🏼Try these 3 exercises  to release the adductors: .
1️⃣Half Kneeling Adductor Mobilisation - Slowly rock back to increase the stretch on the adductors and forward to ease off - 3 sets of 2 minutes each side.
.
2️⃣Spiderman + Adductor Stretch - This mobility drill is great for opening up the hips. This is great for stretching the hip flexors on the rear leg and adductors on the front - 3 sets of 8 reps each side. .
.
3️⃣ Foam Roll Adductors - Lying prone on the floor and turn your toe out to expose the adductors - 3 sets of 2 minutes each side. .

  • TRAIN YOUR BRAIN 🧠!!! [@posturepro] .
.

Are you able to do this movement with both of your hands evenly? .
.
DID YOU PASS? 
Synchronized movement = 👍🏼
Uncoordinated movement = 👎🏼
.
. The cerebellum is a small portion of the brain located in the back of your brain. It represents about 10% of the total weight of your brain but contains roughly half of the brain's neurons and specialized cells that transmit information via electrical signals to the rest of your brain.
.
.
The cerebellum receives information from the sensory systems (muscles and joints) from the spinal cord, and other parts of the brain and then regulates motor movements - it sends the final blue print to your motor cortex so that you can move your muscles .
.
The cerebellum also plays a fundamental role in activating your posterior chain and coordinating voluntary movements such as posture, balance, coordination resulting in smooth and balanced muscular activity. Studies have also shown that it plays an important role for learning motor behaviors, immunity and speech. .
.
Damage to the cerebellum might lead to a lack of balance, slower movements, and tremors (shaking) so it is super important to keep in in check! .
.

Simple coordination based exercises not only improve your coordination but they can also improve your brain function and learning.
.
.
Exercise that requires coordination, such as the one shown in this video, will activate/train the cerebellum. .
.

The cerebellum is also linked to the prefrontal cortex, where judgment and decision-making occur. This means that participating in activities that require coordination can make you smarter and give you better self-control.

  • KNEE PAIN AND SQUATTING (@posturepro)
.
Knee pain during squats is a very common complaint of many lifters, leading many to stop this exercise all together. Fortunately, by optimizing posture, many can overcome this barrier and return to squatting without knee pain! .
.
. 🏋🏿‍♀️ With the high-bar position, the bar is racked on a muscular shelf created by contraction of the upper trapezius muscles. This creates a squat characterized by a more upright torso and decreased hip flexion but INCREASED forward migration of the knee.
.
.
While there is nothing inherently wrong with forward knee migration, for those who struggle with knee pain during the squat, it would be best to choose a variation that limits this. Again, the idea here is PAIN-FREE squatting! .
.
. ⛔️ When you have limited range of motion in one joint, it is usually the joints that are above and below that are required to do whatever they can to help you get into the position needed.  In most cases it is this compensation that results in poor posture, and further injury .
.
.
There is nothing wrong with the high-bar, knees-forward squat. It is used successfully by many lifters and is beneficial for increased strength, hypertrophy, and athletic performance.

  • KNEE PAIN AND SQUATTING (@posturepro)
    .
    Knee pain during squats is a very common complaint of many lifters, leading many to stop this exercise all together. Fortunately, by optimizing posture, many can overcome this barrier and return to squatting without knee pain! .
    .
    . 🏋🏿‍♀️ With the high-bar position, the bar is racked on a muscular shelf created by contraction of the upper trapezius muscles. This creates a squat characterized by a more upright torso and decreased hip flexion but INCREASED forward migration of the knee.
    .
    .
    While there is nothing inherently wrong with forward knee migration, for those who struggle with knee pain during the squat, it would be best to choose a variation that limits this. Again, the idea here is PAIN-FREE squatting! .
    .
    . ⛔️ When you have limited range of motion in one joint, it is usually the joints that are above and below that are required to do whatever they can to help you get into the position needed. In most cases it is this compensation that results in poor posture, and further injury .
    .
    .
    There is nothing wrong with the high-bar, knees-forward squat. It is used successfully by many lifters and is beneficial for increased strength, hypertrophy, and athletic performance. However, if you are currently dealing with knee pain, the hip dominant squat variation may be the way to go for you! .
    .

  • THE CAUSE OF ROUNDED SHOULDERS !!! (@posturepro)
.
❌Rounded shoulders are an unnatural posture characterized by an exaggerated curvature of the upper back, often a forward positioning of the head where the shoulder girdle is protracted, and a thoracic kyphosis
.
.

Over time this postural adaptation causes the muscles and fascia to get shorter in the front of the chest. These include the pectoralis major and minor
.
.
The common belief is that rounded shoulders are caused by looking at computers at work or at school, or looking down at smart phones and computer tablets. This could not be further from the truth.
.
.
😫One of the biggest problems with “rounded shoulders” is the lack of understanding of how they come about and develop in the first place - rounded shoulders are typically caused by poor posture habits and muscle imbalances. .
.
🛠There are two ways to address this problem, the first way which is temporary, is to stretch the muscles that are tight and to strengthen those that are weak
.
.

If you would like a more permanent solution, the second option would be to consider addressing the problem from the bottom up, by looking at what is going on with the feet👣
.
.
⛔️ If an individual has arches that are collapsed inward ↘️↙️ which is known as a valgus foot, this could cause the leg bones to rotate inwards in such a manner as to create increased curves in the lower back and upper back and promoting rounded shoulders.
.
.

Staying injury-free is essential for athletes to reach peak performance, but rounded shoulders affect optimal biomechanics and athletic movements
.
.

Once you start to understand how the brain influences muscle tone you can start making real changes in your posture and get rid of rounded shoulders forever .

  • I’m so lucky to be in LA 🇱🇷 escaping Montreal’s cold weather! More importantly, I’m giving a course to a new batch of smart and promising practitioners! I can’t wait to see what they end up doing with the new tools and brain hacks they have learned! Today, I also had the opportunity to present the work we do to UCLA’s Women’s Soccer ⚽️ @uclawsoccer coaching staff. It is so rewarding to connect with health and fitness professionals and find ways to optimize posture and performance. Massive thank you to Amanda for setting it up. Looking forward to the results we’ll be getting in 2019!💪

  • ARE YOU ANTERIORLY TILTED?!
[@posturepro]
.
.
.
The one thing that we are all fighting on earth is gravity. If your center of gravity is shifted too fard forward, you end up wasting energy standing upright .
.
.
An aligned posture, allows for greater ease of movement through optimal joint position! (Everything is lined up and moves better 👌🏼)
.
.
Most people are unaware that their center of mass is titled forward and that they are at risk of injury
.
.
On the LEFT you can see the pelvis is anteriorly tilted and that the lordosis of the lower back is increased projecting the head forward in relation to the  pelvis .
.
.

On the RIGHT you can see the head and the  curves of the lower and upper spine are aligned .
.
. 
Being aligned has many benefits, ranging form more energy, blood circulation and my personal favorite strength and performance 😁💯 .
.
. 🤔Do you have an anterior tilt? Or perhaps you have a posterior tilt with an anterior shift? Hopefully this post have provided you with the answer to that question!
.
.
Still a few spots left for our next Program in Chicago if you want to learn how to do this!!! 👉🏼 link in my bio
. .
Tag someone who could use benefit from better posture in their workouts 🏃🏻 .
