IG: Shoulder Blade Stabilizers… * * There are a complex group of muscles that affect the movement or position of your shoulder blade. In this video, we are predominantly targeting the rhomboids, middle finger traps and serratus anterior. The idea here is to bring awareness to those muscles, particularly the rhomboids and MFT that get weak overtime due to poor positioning.

IG: Unravel your passion… * * I remember there was a point in my life where I was just mindlessly working away with the sole intention of getting my son and I out of broke living. I had one vision, to save enough so he never has to take out a student loan and provide him with a lifestyle that allowed him opportunities a lack of money/environment greatly affected. 5years went by and even though I was succeeding seeing my vision unfold, I noticed that my passion for life was dwindling. I had no ‘real’ direction. I felt empty and unfulfilled. Working for my vision ended up taking time away from my son/family and I wasn’t even working at anything I even enjoyed. I’m forever grateful for the 2008 crash because that’s when life really took a turn for me internally. That’s when I started really searching for what ignited my soul and what would justify & inspire the time I needed to spend away from my son for the same vision. Fast forward a few years past trial & error, (you do need shitty trials to polish out the gems that are buried within you), and there I was giving up living with my son full-time in order to go back to school & become an RMT. My amazing mentor @neveen_dominic gave me the best advice one day that tremendously changed the guilt I felt for wanting to be an entrepreneur but also a great mom. She told me to involve my son in the business. Talk to him about it, ask him for ideas and keep him in the loop about how things are going etc. Hands down the best thing I have ever done! He has given me so many ideas, feels included in my day’s work and understands that the success of us as a family is the success of my business and vice versa. Having a great, involved, loving & supporting coparent made and makes all the difference for me daily. Thank you @aeon4ever08 for allowing us to flourish as individuals whilst influencing a young mindπŸ’– So I challenge you all to unpack your fears and jump into the business of finding your passion.

IG: Short Range Hip Flexor Strength.. * * This is a rehab protocol but can be utilized for advanced strength training of the core & hip flexor. With the hip already at 90degrees, you are now training the upper mid range to end range portion of flexion. In order to bring the leg up, your core needs to brace to allow for you to clear the leg off the floor thus you get to train your garter belt. Really focus on irradiating the contraction through your entire body for an isolated clean leg lift. If you have recently injured your groin, hip flexor, knee or core, this is a good way to get back to movement and can be done isometrically as well. Advancing this can be done in a number of ways: -ankle weights -loop band around ankles -towel/hand to passively bring leg up, then isometrically contract to keep the leg in the air whilst removing the support (goal is to decrease the lag when you let go) Try this drill for 3sets of 15-20 As you advance it, you can decrease the reps according to weight. #selfcare #primemovement

IG: Eccentric Loading On Hip Flexor * * This rehab drill is focused on the lowering of the leg to the floor as opposed to bringing it up. If your injury has your hip flexors still too weak/painful to bring the leg up alone, you shouldn’t be doing this drill yet. If you still want to, use a towel or your hands to guide the leg up then eccentrically push it back to the ground. Rehab work is tedious, seemingly slow but necessary work. Trust the intelligent healing process of your body, but be diligent enough to understand that it cannot do a perfect job on its own. Try this drill if you’ve recently injured your hip flexors, knee or groin region. This line of training will get the hip flexors primarily but you can still work it for the knee being in the same line of tension. This would only be applicable if the knee is rendered immobile and you do this to keep Movement & strength above the chain. Try it out. 3 sets of 10-15 #selfcare

IG: Rest & Reset… * * It took a lot out of me this morning to not hit the gym. I’ve been going at it daily for weeks and even though I do self care before or after training, I was neglecting the resting aspect of gainz. Today’s self care regime will be upper body focused due to the forward bent over posture I assume when treating clients. Going after the pecs, core, anterior neck and adductors is the common choice and one I will hammer in on this afternoon. This video is a snippet of opening up the pec/chest region which helps alleviate tension experienced around the posterior neck/shoulder blade area. Add in the Cobra Stretch (yoga) to get more of a core stretch and sit wide legged against the wall, inching your hips closer to the wall for the adductor stretch. This is patient work. Not one input will give you the results, so sit with it repeatedly and for long periods of time to attain results. Happy Hump Day! #selfcare

IG: GOALS… * * I’ve been quiet posting on Instagram since my recent trip back home to Africa. It had been 17years since I left without turning back, and I was amazed by what I saw, didn’t see but most importantly what I felt. The biggest takeaway I want to share with you all is the importance of grounding. Being grounded in BEING. In your essence. I left at a pinnacle age for any human (15) and returned 17years later. All these years I didn’t look back. Whatever memories that were so strong when I first came had faded a bit, but always left this lingering feeling of incompletion. Being back reignited who I am in my core. Walking in the footsteps of your childhood and seeing why you are the way you are now is a very empowering experience. Without much family here in Canada, being home filled a gap I didn’t even really realize I was missing. North America seemed so worthless to me for a bit. All the lofty 1st world goals, and yet what I was seeing back home was beyond that. I was stripped down to feeling the strains of lack in basic human rights needs, e.g. clean water. As you embark on your awesome 2019year, I employ you to review your goals diligently and ask yourself the VALUE in which you are bringing to yourself & others. If your goals aren’t aligned with YOU in your truest form of BEING then I fear you will acquire them and be extremely sad in the end. Be grounded in understanding what it is YOU truly need for YOU, and what it takes to make YOU happy by YOUR standards, not others. Self-care is big business, I can admit that, but my hopes for you are that you invest in ONLY the things you consider really caring to your soul. Your BEING. I hope you dream BIG, and be unapologetic in pursuing them. Life is too short and other places in the world have WAYYYYY less than you currently have, TRUST! I look forward to watching you blossom in health (mind & body) for those of you who see Functional Movement Self-care as valuable to your well-being.πŸ™ƒ #namaste

IG: Mitigate shoulder injuries by implementing this mobility drill to your self care regimen. The goal is to move only the arm whilst maintaining scapula depression & slight retraction. Spill a 60-80% contraction through the rest of your body and set the scapula before moving your arm. It looks easy but if you are doing this right, you will tire out fairly quickly. Try this and let me know how you feelπŸ‘ŒπŸ½ #selfcare #primemovement

IG: Do not fail to succeed, fail many times in order to succeed. * * Cliches are corny till one day alot of personal experiences have you living them. There’s nothing more to this post other than my realization recently that I have tried and failed at ALOT of things (sometimes even prematurely before truly finding out if they were true failures) but I wouldn’t be where I am now if I didn’t keep trying at something different – clicheπŸ™„- I know! Lol If you are lost today or don’t know what you are truly passionate enough to pursue, simply try at anything small that remotely sounds like a good idea at the time. Over time & with observation in each experience, your life will unfold before you. The key is to cultivate a level of optimism, no matter how deluded you may feel about it at the time, that gives you just enough energy to try at it long enough to reach an outcome. That’s it! Nothing more, nothing less! Just had this thought, and decided to share. Happy Saturday everyone!
