  • 🏋️‍♀️300# Snatch + The Bernie🏋️‍♀️ This was on day 4 of my 4day Iowa seminar tour at @crossfittyl in Iowa last year. Such a great group of athletes to work with. I always love going back to Iowa! I’ll be looking to put on 1 or 2 seminars in Iowa on the wknd of Oct 12/13!

  • The ‘Guy-Wire’ effect:
⬇️
‘Proximal stability for distal mobility’ - This is a concept in the rehab/movement world that shows up frequently.
Proximal = near the centre of the body.
Distal = further away from the centre of the body.
⬇️
The human pelvis is the centre of mass of the body. The spine is like the chassis, protecting the spinal cord. All too often, people lack proximal control/stability at the pelvis, spine, hip and shoulder girdle.
➡️ When proximal areas like this are in need of more stability/control, they call on the help of other muscles. Often times, more distal ‘prime mover’ muscles get called upon to help stabilize and control these proximal regions (if they aren’t getting the stability they need).
➡️ Examples of these prime mover muscles being asked to stabilize are the hamstrings, quads, calf’s, UFT, scalenes etc.
🔑 The Guy-Wire analogy can be used to conceptualize what is happening:
• In a tower structure (like the one seen in the graphic), there are many small structural struts internally, which stabilize the tower from inside. This can be thought of as the ‘core’ and proximal stability.
• The larger spanning guy wires are external supports that help stabilize. However if the internal struts were weak or not present, then the guy wires would have to work MUCH more and have to play a larger role...these are the prime movers which get called in if proximal stability is lacking.

  • Jag la i veckan ut en utmaning i storyn där vi inte bara jobbar med passiv stretch utan också med styrka i/ur våra ytterlägen vilket kan gynna dig i skadeförebyggande syfte. En annan aspekt är att det också är  tidseffektivt där du både tränar rörlighet och styrka i ett.  I Video 1 sitter jag i den vanliga stretchpositionen för att stretcha rumpmuskeln (Mm. gluteus på latin). Sedan är uppdraget att med så mycket tryck som möjligt på foten, men med en hand i komma upp till stående. TESTA! 
För ytterligare varianter se video 2-3 ☺️👊🏼 .
Video 2: Lättare än video 1, hand och fot i marken. Sträck ben så långt åt sidan som möjligt. .
Video 3: placera ut något att sikta mot (värmeljus tog jag). Samma rörelse som ovan men utan handen eller foten i marken. Sikta med foten mot föremålet. .
Video 4: tyngre variant av video 3, gå så djup som möjligt! 👊🏼🙌

  • Active vs passive flexibility. ♥️ These two variations of cobra pose are a great visual to look at some differences between active and passive flexibility. 🐍 Active flexibility relies on the strength of the muscle fibers to achieve a stretch, without the assist of props (straps, bands, blocks). You actively engage one muscle group to stretch another. This requires effort but it’s also really hard to over stretch when activity engaged. ♥️ Do you have the active flexibility but want more mobility or a deeper range of motion? Work on passive flexibility. Passive flexibility relies on an assist on a relaxed muscle. In other words, a strap, a block, a band or a person (even your own hand) to support the stretch. This type of flexibility relies largely on joint mobility and the connective tissues around the muscle. Passive flexibility will help your increase and maintain a flexible range of motion. It’s important to stay relaxed in passive stretches. ♥️ I’m currently collaborating with the guys over at the @themobilitymanifesto on a program that will support and elevate your yoga practice - stay tuned! ♥️ Wearing @aloyoga (sponsor) - these leggings are brand new for fall - so soft! #yoga #activeflexibility #passiveflexibility #yogateacher #yogastudent #movetoimprove #mobility #stability #stretch #flexible #flexibility

  • 📢WHY DOES YOUR SWING HURT YOUR BACK??📢 This is one of the most common feedbacks I hear from people that "try" swinging a Kettlebell with little experience.

Yes, when you swing a Kettlebell improperly or without the correct instructions, it will feel uncomfortable. In most cases the pressure will be felt in the lower back.

But that's not the Kettlebell, or the swing's fault.

One of the most common mistakes made is moving the hips too soon into the hinge before the Kettlebell has made its descent.

When the hips move too soon and are not coordinated with the pendulum path of the Kettlebell, the load of the weight is felt directly into the lower back rather than distributed throughout the body.

You want to delay the hinge of the hips until the biceps have made contact with the ribs. This connects the load of the Kettlebell and its momentum into your bigger muscles and stabilizers. This allows for better distribution of the load and a safe spine.

If you move the hips too soon the weight is not evenly absorbed into your body . This lack of coordination with the Kettlebell's movement means less efficient work and puts direct pressure into the lower back.

For best results with less wear and tear on the body with Kettlebell swings pay attention to this important technique cue.

This is just one of many technique cues covered in The Kettlebell Academics Coaching Foundations Workshop. You'll get everything you need to practice and teach strong and durable swing techniques to get the most out of your Kettlebells.

The next Workshop date is August 22, 2019 in Markham, Ontario. Still a few days left to register so check out the details below and reserve your spot. 
Look forward to seeing you there!! 👊🏾😎 🆕⬇️KETTLEBELL WORKSHOP LINK⬇️🆕 https://kbacademics.com/workshop

  • HOW HEALTHY ARE YOU KNEES?🤔
-

This move strengthens the knee joint and keeps it healthy as well!👏🏼
-

Do this going slowly into the movement! Lean back as far as you can go without losing balance!👌🏼
-

Get on the floor and give this a GO!👍🏼

  • This wall stretch is a fantastic hip & hamstring opener, and is a great way to relax and let the fluids that accumulate in your feet over the day flow back to your body for recirculation. You can easily do this at home as well as against a couch or bed!.

  • Breathe, move, flow, sweat, juice. Playing around at my gym between client appointments; integrating extension, flexion, and rotation all in one with a little handstand float in between to make it fun. Bear sigh included at the end.
🤸‍♂️🏋️‍♂️🐻
I started working at @fuzionfit a few months ago (hence why I haven't been as active on social media) and couldn't be happier. It's been a great opportunity to meet more of the local community here on Maui. I am still working with a bunch of online clients and working on some @k.fitnesspro business projects, but I figured I'd give you guys a peek at the yoga room in my gym where you'll find me zenning 🧘‍♂️😎 #fuzionfit #kfitpro
