  • Corrective Exercises for Knee Impairments Teil 4 
Dysbalancen und/oder Verletzungen können durch verschiedene Assessmemts identifiziert werden. Sobald diese Defizite identifiziert sind, kann eine Corrective Exercise Strategy entwickelt werden.

Schritt 4.
Integration Techniques werden verwendet um die kollektive und synergistische Funktion aller Muskeln während einer funktionellen Bewegung wieder zu erlernen.

Beispiel integrated dynamic movement: Sprint Start to Step Up.

  • Finding clarity in the chaos. 🌪
.
.
Life on the road has definitely been an adjustment.  It takes a lot of organization, making the most of the resources available to you at any given moment, and a lot of unattachment. . .
All lessons important in finding flow on the mat - -keep the body organized, maintain awareness of the possibilities available to you at any moment, and let it go and move on if something doesn’t go as planned.

  • Corrective Exercises for Knee Impairments Teil 3

Dysbalancen und/oder Verletzungen können durch verschiedene Assessments identifiziert werden. Sobald diese Defizite identifiziert sind, kann eine Corrective Exercise Strategy entwickelt werden.

Schritt 3.
Activate Techniques werden verwendet um hypotone Muskulatur wieder besser zu aktivieren. Dies wird durch Isolated Strengthening Exercises und/oder Positional Isometrics erreicht.
Key Muscels bei Knee Impairments für Activate Techniques: posterior/anterior Tibialis, Gluteus Medius und Maximus.

Beispiel: Gluteus Maximus Positional Isometric Strengthening Exercise.

  • This was a hard one for me, and boy was it worth it. Another great session trying to create something here. 
I encourage you to build a movement practice around creating, not doing. 
London Workshop on the 11th of May with @sistratton @lmotionstudios 
Few spots left, ticket link in bio. 
If you can’t make it, I’m taking students on for online coaching. Message me.

  • Let’s start to look at the SI joint. It moves, but only a little, a few degrees in every direction. Even though the movement is small, the impact is big. When we move our legs or our spine, this joint is like a fulcrum that transmits the large forces between lower and upper body. This movement allows the joint to act more like a spring or sling or cushion to redirect force, rather than just absorbing it all and taking the hit alone. .
.
Let’s start with the basics and work our way into more complex movements later. If your leg swings forward, the pelvis tilts posterior (we also call this a flexed pelvis or flexed ilium). When the leg swings behind us into extension, the pelvis tilts anterior which we can also call an extended pelvis or extended ilium. Basically where the leg goes, the pelvis follows. That’s a natural rhythm. See if you can notice this when you walk up stairs or do a lunge, the butt will feel like it is tucking under you for the forward leg and the opposite for the backward leg.

  • Variations of Sun Salutation B.
First version requires no planks, no problems for people with any arm, hand or wrist issues.
Second version is a little more effort, and a lot more shoulder stabilising and strengthening.
☀️ enjoy!! Let me know how you go 😊

  • Lateral flexion (side bending) is a natural function of the spine that is often impeded. This folding action requires ease in the neck area, cooperation from both sides of the rib cage, and weight distribution through the pelvis. Typically we traverse through flexion and extension most of our day with long periods of sitting and even standing. This is a nice way to break habitual movement patterns. In Feldenkrais, we focus on moving our bones. We allow things to soften and bend rather than (stretch) actively working to achieve a goal (i.e. a pose). Try playing with side bending/folding as a way to encourage the whole column of the spine to ease the neck and low back, and to improve breath flow. *

  • 🦶Ankle dorsiflexion is a vital component in many day to day tasks such as walking and squatting.  It happens to limited in many people for various reasons. Typically, we need around 10 degrees of DF to walk and 20 degrees or more to squat.  There are many drills that address passive mobility but we seem to forget about the active component.
.
This exercise is a great way to strengthen the muscles that dorsiflex the ankle which allows for better control and stability.
.
✅Start in a seated position and grab a belt, rope, or band. I'm using a few super bands.
.
1️⃣Actively DF your ankle as far as you can
.
2️⃣Once at end range, pull your ankle further using the strap
.
3️⃣Let go of the strap and hold the position of the ankle for around 5 seconds. Repeat and try to improve further as you go.
.
This exercise is effective by using a combo of concentric and isometric strengthening. You will feel this burn in the front of the shin.
.
🚫Avoid any pain and/or pinching with the exercise.
.

  • 🔹️Martin (64) trainiert seit 2016 bei mir. Er ist leidenschaftlicher (Renn)Radfahrer und nimmt auch ab und zu im Sommer an Rennen teil - wobei Spaß hier im Vordergrund steht. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🔹️Das wichtigste Thema war von Beginn an die Verbesserung seiner Beweglichkeit - in allen Gelenken. Wichtig außerdem: Rumpfstabilität & die aufrechte Haltung im Alltag, da dies durch das Radfahren nicht gerade begünstigt wird. 🔹️In allen Bereichen hat er über die Zeit gute, kontinuierliche Fortschritte gemacht. Im Training zeichnet er sich besonders durch seine Beständigkeit aus. Es geht nicht um Riesenerfolge. Es geht um kleine Erfolge, auf denen man aufbauen kann - so folgen auch die Resultate! Und das wichtigste: Man hat Spaß an der Sache!

  • Have you ever wondered why it’s important to be doing loaded carrying movements like the Farmer’s Walk?! Here’s just a FEW benefits of WHY they are super beneficial to your training:
. . .
1️⃣ It’s one of THE most functional movements there is! In fact, each day we all carry things! We carry groceries to the car, we carry babies and toddlers, we carry our suitcases at the airport, and sometimes you might even have to carry your drunk friend out of the bar 😜 Regardless, of what you’re carrying- functional movement patterns we see in our day to day routine are extremely important to implement in to our training- to get stronger, or more efficient at them, and to prevent injury when you do them in real life!
. . .
2️⃣ Grip Strength. Loaded carrying improves our grip for other movements like pull-ups, deadlifts, rope climbing, and other gymnastic based movements!
. . .
3️⃣ Shoulder Health. Believe it or not, when performed correctly heavy carrying movements can IMPROVE shoulder health, function, and even help with with various shoulder injuries. By maintaining a tight and upright posture, the shoulder scapula engages and creates a stronger, stable shoulder overall!
. . .
Eric Applefield is shown here demonstrating a brilliant Farmer’s Carry! Nice work Eric! And today, we have some Farmer’s Carrying in our WOD! Who’s ready?!

  • When you squat, think about evenly loading your feet and sit your butt back. It’s not that complicated! It might take a few thousand repetitions to get good at it again, like when you were an infant. But what skill doesn’t take thousands of repetitions to get good at?
•
Humans are built to squat. Here is a list of some movement benefits from squatting:
🏋🏻‍♂️ Hip strength and mobility
🏋🏼‍♀️ Spinal control and awareness
🏋🏿‍♂️ Foot arch and ankle control
🏋🏻‍♀️ Shoulder mobility into flexion or extension (depends on squat type)
🏋🏼‍♂️ Global motor development (coordination)
🏋🏾‍♀️ Improved body muscle composition
🏋🏻‍♂️ improved cognitive function (training movement = training your brain)
🔑 Squat deep and often my friends!

  • Mixing up a hollow body hold with leg lifts, found it tough to keep the body and leg in line with the roller as I moved the opposite one. 🤸‍♀️
.
.
Other than that had a pretty chill day... 🏄‍♂️
.
.
Give it a go and tag me, let me see how your getting on with it. 💪
.
.
It’s something I’m going to be practicing a lot more. 🏋️‍♂️
.
.
Trying to find new ways to work and control individual limbs in static positions, as I get into training more over the summer. I want to be adding more dynamic, agile movements to try and be more functional and comparable with a performance. 🤼‍♂️
.
.
I want to focus on cutting this summer to try and improve my reactive skills. I’ll try to keep you guys posted if I come up with new drills. ⛹️‍♂️

  • The “Deadlift” is a critical movement to the human body. It’s how we pick things up off the ground and set them back down, and the movement pattern involved (#hiphinge) has been estimated to be something we do THOUSANDS of times a day.
-
But not everyone can (or should for that matter) just start grabbing a barbell and doing conventional “deadlift” exercises. Based on familiarity with the movement (based on recent exposure), the presence of pain along the movement’s kinetic chain, and the equipment available to the person, the appropriate way to introduce the body to regular resistance training of the movement needs to be carefully selected in order to maximize training benefits and minimize risks.
-
In this example, I have chosen a Trap/Hex bar instead of a barbell, which moves the weight’s center of mass to my natural center of mass, rather than slightly in front of me. This makes the load more balanced, less stressful on my body, and more natural.
-
Another modification I have made is I’ve elevated the weight, making the distance the weight travels shorter. This means I don’t have to bend over as far, so again, less stress on my body (especially the back), lower risk of injury.
-
Smarter exercise starts with smarter choices. Equipment, range of motion, speed, load, volume, frequency, recovery....these are just a few things to think about!
-
What’s a movement you struggle with??

  • #Repost with @Repostlyapp @fp_willie #results *****Before and after Gait Cycle after 2 months*****Mikel has been training with me for 2 months now. He had come to me with issues with his shoulder and posture because of working as a tattoo artist for over 30 years. He is now 50 years old and decided he needed a change. We started with focusing on how to correct his posture and correct the injury through using HBS2 techniques. When realizing that Mikel was pretty hyperflaccid I had to address all different points and his shoulder was just a biproduct of his hyperflaccidty. Mikel has no issues with his shoulder anymore and it's really the last thing we talk about. His gait has improved from his fastest speed being 13km and now it's at 18km, he has more elastic recoil considering the years of physio, stretching and bad habits. He texted me the one day saying "who said you couldn't teach an old dog new tricks" Below are some things he had to say about @functionalpatterns 👇👇👀👇👀👇👀👇👀👇
.
.
✔️@mikel_tattoosangha said "If you are at all considering trying Functional Patterns training, all I can say is do it. It's not going to be what you think, I am not sure you can explain just what you will experience... but I am sure it will exceed your expectations. I feel it demands more from you, but it rewards you more as well. This isn't just for athletes, it's for anyone that wants to move better, and be more healthy. I came to this with just the simple goal of wanting to be the healthiest I have ever been by my 50th birthday. I don't come from an athletic background at all. I am now moving better, and feel stronger and more stable in all my movements. I was having some shoulder issues after doing some kickboxing training prior to this, and now it's gone. I have achieved my goals and pain free!"

He texted me the one day saying "who said you couldn't teach an old dog new tricks" Below are some things he had to say about @functionalpatterns 👇👇👀👇👀👇👀👇👀👇

    ✔️@mikel_tattoosangha said "If you are at all considering trying Functional Patterns training, all I can say is do it. It's not going to be what you think, I am not sure you can explain just what you will experience... but I am sure it will exceed your expectations. I feel it demands more from you, but it rewards you more as well. This isn't just for athletes, it's for anyone that wants to move better, and be more healthy. I came to this with just the simple goal of wanting to be the healthiest I have ever been by my 50th birthday. I don't come from an athletic background at all. I am now moving better, and feel stronger and more stable in all my movements. I was having some shoulder issues after doing some kickboxing training prior to this, and now it's gone. I have achieved my goals and pain free!"

  • Sore muscles and sunshine make the perfect combination... ☀️ •
•
•
Yes of course we feel lack of recovery at times... this week my hips have been talking to me, feeling sore post-workout longer than normal. •
•
•
One of my most simple strategies to integrate movement in my day to day amongst work-life/mom-life/social-life is to have an #intention for the workout and to keep it simple... •
•
•
Barefoot in the grass and move with what feels good for you. Being in an on-ground position gives your body added stability allowing you to have more control of your movement and feel confident in those ranges. •
•
•
Play with different planes of motion to target all muscle lengths, degrees of freedom, and challenge you beyond your norm. •

  • Mid-week Mobility Check-In!! Hope everyone is having a swell week! How’re things going? Pain? Soreness? Fatigue? These things can set in over the course of a busy week - make sure to leave yourself a little time each day to stretch, move and most importantly, to breathe!

Fun little move here - I call these apple 🍎 turnovers - that’s probably not what they’re really called but I don’t care, apple turnovers are delicious. 
Starting in a split/straddle bring one knee in and lift off of the opposite side - this is a perfect stretch right here but if you want to add in some core dynamics you can kick/turn the leg over - work on slowing the kick as much as possible to really give the core some love. 
Side note: the lift back up into squat at the end is something I’ve been messing with for awhile - if you have any tips (or apple treats) I would love to hear from you!! Want to learn more human Lego moves to create your own movement sequencing? Join me on Wednesday’s @vikriyalab at 6:15PM for MobilityLab!
