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 feel?? #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 – cliche?- 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!

IG: Take me back!!!! * * On a gloomy day like this it’s easy to reminisce about better weather, which for me wasn’t too long ago. Here is a short shoulder warmup to do before your workout to really get acquainted with your scapula stabilizers + create fluid working space within your shoulder joint. Your shoulder blade should be set back & down as you move through the motion. Do not rest your hands on the back of your head or low back as you go from top to bottom. Breathe & try 3-5 sets of 15. Thank me later!?? #selfcare

IG: Happy Monday Everyone!? * * I hope everyone had a great weekend and is ecstatic to be alive & well today!??? Here is a short neck routine to do if you experience pain/tension around the neck/shoulder blade area. More of than not, it’s due to prolonged posture in the forward head position. This drill will give your cervical spine the motion it needs as you move through the entire range of motion at it’s outer limits, + deposit back some strength as you isometrically contract particularly the posterior tissues (when your head is flexed forward/toward the armpit). You can also reverse the motion by keeping your head in on position and tweaking the shoulder blade to Target the same tissues…(I’ll create a video for that too). Ensure your form is clean by keeping your torso upright and not slouched, coz that would totally defeat the purpose of unbinding bad posture pains lol☝?? Try this together with a great chest opener of your choice & let me know how you feel! #selfcare #primemovement

IG: Multitasking… * * This is one of my fav passive stretches for the TFL & QL(Tensor Fascia Late + Quadratus Lumborum Muscles). This duo can leave one with knee, back or hip pain. TFL in particular is a great one to release for any active individual as it works in opposition of your glute max muscle to move your legs. QL then kicks in as a co-contractor/stabilizer during movement and gets predominantly stuck/tight in prolonged seated postures. I like this stretch because it allows my client to remain fairly relaxed if I choose, or I can passively stretch the TFL on one side whilst they actively pull themselves into a gluteal stretch on the other. Who said multitasking was all bad?? #staywoke
