IG: Hip Mobility… * * It’s not until most injure themselves that they start to realize the importance of healthy joint motion. Instead of waiting to figure it out for yourself, why not take the path already paved from those previously injured & begin taking steps to reduce the severity of any possible injuries. Mobility work is not pompous enough to say you will never get injured, but it’s having confidence knowing that if & when you do your tissues will be primed to handle 80-90% of the load your activity presents, that way, if you go beyond it, you will only incur injury at 10-20% of a deficit. Most injuries occur in the long and short ranges of motion that most never train. So let’s be like the wise man who learns from another’s mistakes & start on our daily journey to optimizing our joints & tissues for load. ************************* #primemovement #mobility #functionalmobility

IG: Envision it in your mind Feel it with all your senses Move towards it by taking actionable steps daily… I must admit, I didn’t appreciate the depths of this advice from the countless books I read till I started on the journey to gratitude. Full intentional consistent gratitude. I can’t stress enough how much that has changed my life and finally sunk ALL the great advice I’ve read in my books. It’s not enough to BE grateful, you gotta FEEL it!???

IG: On tackling the QL Muscle… * * I have alot of love for the lateral and spiral fascial lines. It’s always so interesting to see & feel the difference in movement once you release any restriction along that line. For instance, the Quadratus Lumborum muscle that attaches to the rim of your hip, along your lumbar veterbrae and up to your 12th rib, can influence how you walk, sit, squat or overhead press etc. When it’s tight, it compresses the space between your hip & ribcage which then affects all movement up & down the lateral chain. Once that happens (of course other factors considered/eliminated), the body starts to compensate for this lack of fluid motion by coupling from other tissues/areas, usually some sort of rotation for counterbalance. In order for you to now stay ‘balanced’ you will likely feel twisting at the hips or ribcage to compensate, and goes further down with the knee & foot. It’s a ripple effect, and understanding how all structures are related and influence each other is key to taking the right selfcare path (self/professional). Have you practiced self care today??? ??‍♀️ @thebrazilianbomber #selfcare
