Well worth the read! repost from @functionalpatterns using @repostregramapp - hypermobilizing my body without making myself hyperflaccid. the term hypermobile has been hijacked over the last few years by people who don't seem to know much about applied movement. hypermobility is necessary for good function. most intenr to do well. none do. most train themselves to be hyperflaccid though, not knowing the consequences. they only disconnect themselves with stretching and mobility wods. this is why people begin to suffer pains similar to jill miller.
a hyperflaccid structure is simply one that has no connection to the natural rhythms walking, sprinting and throwing wired into our dna. me simply just stretching my adductors is much different than what i am doing in this video. all those yoga poses and whatnot only hyperflaccidize your structure. sequencing is maybe the biggest disconnect people have in this field. it's why human bodies over 27 or 28 years old are crumbling.
because the youth has no idea of these concepts, they will fall prey to this false positivism "be the best version of yourself" doctrine. injuries, anxiety and depression will follow. ofcourse, most these young people will do what everyone else does when they get older: fall back on "medicine". whether it is a joint, beer, or pharma, they won't solve their problem. it is sad. the elders of youngsters still live in denial and they pass these damaging values down. consequently, we don't learn. misery will persist in humans. everyone will continue to ask why this is happening. not me. i know what's up. i'm addressing problems. not masking them with gains or hyperflacidity. that's how we roll at fp
I signed up for the sparkle challenge (which is such a fun and festive name, i love it 🌟✨) today, which is a challenge to take as many barre classes as you can in 30 days! it’s a community challenge so it’s a great way to stay accountable for your fitness goals during the holidays, when things like cold weather, finals, holiday meals, and such can make it hard!
if you are interested in barre, it’d be a great thing to try, and you can get a $20 credit for classes or cute workout gear! ✨✨✨✨ sparkle on whoo!
(voice over tutorial) shoulder and hip mobility movement..
this is a part of the turkish get up, that i enjoy utilizing to address not only the movement of my hips and shoulders, but also the stability in my shoulder. remember, you need both mobility and stability if you’re looking to optimize your performance 💃🏻🏃🏻♀️🤸🏻♀️🏋🏻♀️🏄🏻♀️.
We find a gentle stretch in the morning really helps us skip into the shower for a #sugarscrub pamper session 😁 defining the art of killing it in the morning @gaiabohemejewellery 💕💕💕 i don't think our plank can quite compare 😗

🌊 wall spinal waves 🌊 i think it's safe to say that many people's spine would benefit from this exercise; place your back on a wall with the feet a bit away, curl down till your back is off the wall, curl back up. then "peel" off from the bottom till only your head is on the wall, place one vertebrae back on, one after the other. i like to do 10r controlled (not too slow, but not fast!) reps from both ends. 🤗😎 coach: @fannyronkainen location: @liftperformancecentre
