If you haven’t picked up on it yet, BALANCE IS VERY IMPORTANT to us!
When we perform any movement, only 10% our brain’s 🧠 effort in achieving that task goes toward the movement itself, but 90% goes toward stabilizing us reflexively. 💥
This is why we don’t fall down when we reach out and grab 🤚🏼 something. We may take this process for granted when we lift a ☕️, but have you tried balancing on one foot 🦶to put on a sock 🧦 lately?
Though balance and posture are largely reflexive tasks of the nervous system 🧠, we can consciously work to improve them. 💯
We are only half joking when we suggest practicing balance drills in the supermarket 🏬, but you really can do it anytime and anywhere.
The more frequently you train, even if it’s just for a couple minutes at a time, the faster your balance will improve❣️
You don’t need much more instruction than what’s on the second video, but if you haven’t been practicing the hip lock from the first video, check out our post from June 5 for guidance.
Have fun challenging your balance and let us know how it goes!
Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy is also known as Spinal Manipulation, or “adjustment,” and refers to gentle pressure or a high-velocity low-amplitude thrust to help restore function and motion to a joint that has become restricted from daily activities of living. The manipulation also stimulates the nervous system to help reduce pain and relax local musculature. The noise that can be heard with an adjustment is that of release of nitrogen gas from a joint capsule.

✔️The Barbell Is a GREAT tool. .
✖️However, it is only a vehicle to the ultimate end goal: Strength, Health, and Performance. .
➡️ The number one assetyou have an an athlete, coach, or every-day gym goer is AVAILABILITY. End of discussion. You must be able to feel good, healthy, and strong. Of course, there will be exceptions if you are a competitive strength based athlete. You will have to put the price. .
➡️ As athletes, we strive to be readily available at all times, although not a definitive reality - we can still use tools (the gym) to help get us there. .
➡️Here are two variations that I have begun to use from our Head Strength Coach @mike_capriglione that helps alleviate wrist, elbow, and shoulder joint stress. .
▪️Exercise #1 : Bottoms Up KB Bench .
Great for greater ranges of motion, less joint impact, and a great variation used on pressing days/movements. .
▪️Exercise 2: Bottoms Up KB Press
Nothing new - but this combined with the Bottoms Up KB Press is a gnarley combo for a great upper body volume series. .
1️⃣ Use as Supplemental Movements
2️⃣ More Volume 3-5 Sets of 15+ Reps
3️⃣ Use During Lower Intensity/Deloads

We had a few clients share their recent not-so-fun experience at the pool 🏊♀️ recently, so we thought this could be helpful.
Let’s get out of the pool without scrapping our shins all the while getting 💪 stronger.
The mechanics of leaving the pool is similar to our “up-on-the-counter” we posted on June 19th if you wanted to refer back.
While spending time at the pool this summer ☀️, we can use this movement to get stronger.
Performing this movement with different speeds (slow/ medium/ fast) can help us learn better body coordination 💥 and control.
An awesome testimonial from a great client.
I love working with Ryan to reach new goals. He knows how to push limits without risking injury. We work together to plan short term goals that lead to long term well being. He is responsive to how I am feeling all while keeping me on the short and long term plans. Best trainer I've had in the past 11 years. - M.F. #traininjuryfree#injurypreventiontraining

Freedom to move creates Confidence... and Options and Joy. 🤸🏻♀️😊🤸🏻♂️
Just watching Bambi joyfully skip across the floor makes me feel giddy.
As adults, we rarely find opportunities to move in playful ways like we did when we were kids 👦🏻 👧🏻.
I, personally, used to jump off the arms of our sofa for no better reason than I could.
Think of how kids innately spin 💈, tumble, jump over and crawl under things, climb 🌳, etc.
For likely practical and good reasons most of us eventually stop playing in this way. However (and unfortunately) this means that over time we lose confidence with our movements and take fewer risks. Not only do we lose our ability to horse around (and the joy that goes with it) but we also become more prone to injury.
To be a healthy and happy mover, we need to jump and land safely, speed up and slow down with control, change 🧭direction quickly, and get down and up efficiently.
As these skills are learned and mastered, our options to engage will increase exponentially.
Since Bambi is so happy with skipping we’ll post a tutorial in the next few days if you want to start there.
If skipping seems too daunting, check out our recent posts on jumping, rolling, and crawling. They are all good ways of increasing our options, confidence and joy.
Chiropractor for athletes!
But it's not just injured athletes who visit chiropractors. In fact, an estimated 90% of all world-class athletes routinely use chiropractic care to prevent injuries and boost their performance.
It also helps with:
•Headaches from head and neck injuries.
•Back and shoulder pain.
•Ankle and knee injuries.
Volgende maand word ik 49 en 2 jaar geleden heb ik een pees volledig afgescheurd.
Volgens de statistieken is de kans dat mijn achillespees er geen zin meer in heeft ruim 10 x groter dan bij een sportieve dame van in de 20.
Behalve als die dame boxjumps doet op de meest risicovolle manier.
Voor de leek: Boxjumps is Engelands voor doosspringen.
Er zijn 2 soorten dozen. De ouderwetse houten doos, die perfect is om het vel van je scheenbeen af te schrapen. En de meer vergevingsgezinde moderne doos van zachte materialen en ronde hoeken.
Er zijn diverse ondergronden: Van spijkerhard, tot de prachtige moderne rubberen sportvloeren die alle grondreactiekrachten en sprongkrachten beter absorberen. Groot verschil voor de impact op je lijf.
Er zijn 2 manieren om op een box te springen. Als je sprongkracht wil trainen spring je op de box met triple extension (filmpje, gestrekt been). In de praktijk zie ik dit alleen bij gekwalificeerde trainers en goed gecoachte atleten. Wat ik vrijwel altijd zie is heupflexie, ook prima.
Er zijn diverse manieren om van een box af te komen. Je loopt door en springt er aan de andere kant af. Je draait je om en je springt er af. Je stapt er af. Of je springt eraf naar achteren……
De Julie Fouchers en Alethea Boons van deze wereld zeggen allemaal hetzelfde. Er was niks aan de hand maar toen ik voor de 200zoveelste keer van de box afsprong (naar achteren) knapte mijn achillespees.
Naar achteren springen is net zo onnatuurlijk als hurken met een stuk ijzer in je nek (spinal loaded squat-back squat). Alleen bij de spinal loaded squat vind ik de risico’s onder de juiste omstandigheden met de juiste klant, voor het juiste doel, volledig aanvaardbaar. Al is het niet perse nodig om je benen te trainen.
Naar achteren springen bij een boxjump is een biomechanische nachtmerrie voor je achillespees en vind ik een onaanvaardbaar risico. Het is in mijn lessen verboten. #fitfam#fitdutchie#amsterdam#autonomy#rivierenbuurt#oudzuid#jump#vitality#vitalitycoach#fitdads#fitdad#tattoo#kojak#inked#fitness#fitnessmotivation#recoveringdutchie#autonomy#lovelife#injurypreventiontraining#personaltrainer
