It is important to instill the ideals and values we hold close to heart, in the young generations that are growing up in this new technological age. Now more than ever people are spending more time on phones, sitting in chairs in front of computers, spending hours a day on some kind a screen. Taking care of your body should always be number one. Our goal is to teach you in a way that lets you fall in love with the process. Get addicted to the results, and pass on our teachings to the people you want to see by your side for a lifetime. The young minds are the most adaptable, and the most impressionable, so let's do them a favor and teach them how to take care of themselves so they don't struggle later in life with something so easy to do, but yet so few people practice Functional Lifestyles - The Pursuit of Balance™ . . . #FunctionalLifestyles #PursuitofBalance #LiveLoveLaughLift #HustleMustle #FunctionalFocus #Fit #Health #Training #Gym #Fitness #Motivation #Movement #Nutrition #Agility #Fitness #Nike #Stability #Mobility #Instafit #Inspiration #PaloAlto #Bayarea #Calilove #Inspiration #Workout #Functionaltraining

Trying to make an educational post about how excellent Yoga Push-Ups are for athletes... but things didn’t turn out how expected. _ I was going to talk about how Yoga Push-Ups are great in a warm-up or as a strength builder. I was also going to mention that they develop shoulder stability in a semi-overhead position, something many athletes need to work on. @dbayy22 is killing these. Oh, and how this movement can enhance your full-body mobility too. Lastly, I was going to say that it’s a great pressing option for basketball players, specifically, considering the large amount of overhead reaching (with contact) that occurs in the sport. But instead, we got raw footage of a heated argument about breakfast burritos between @the_nicktemple43 and @jetic_23 . Apparently @TopGolf has a phenomenal breakfast burrito, so go try that. Save the Yoga Push-Ups for another day, I guess...

Head a gentleman come in with classic symptoms of scapular dyskinesia. His shoulder blades had forgotten where to go when I asked him to, "pull his shoulder blades together." This generally happens when an injury (rotator cuff surgery 4 yrs prior) forces one side to become dominant and functionality is compromised. Whatever the cause, one of our go to exercises to activate the mid/lower trap region is the elastic face pull. Pulling from a high to low direction isolates the lower portion of trapezius. Brace the core and keep the ribcage down and you're good to go. I love high volume with this movement, so lock down your technique then get going! If you need help getting your #shoulders to work right again, then be sure to click on the link in our bio and get scheduled for an initial analysis session and we'll take a look at where the discrepancies stem from. #functionalfitness #fitness #gym #workout #exercise #longevity #injury #Charlotte #speed #chiropractic #power #quickness #agility #stability #recovery #strength #conditioning #personaltraining #athletes #baseball #mobility #flexibility #massage #posture

Tried something new (for me) today. Lil’ KB combo {push-up -> swing thru straight-leg abdominal hold}. • Definitely requires an intense amount of stability, but hey.. 🤷🏻‍♂️ what doesn’t?! • Quite a few of us spend the majority of our time working on strength and conditioning. What shouldn’t happen is neglecting ‘balance’ work. BUILD your foundation, and then revisit it every few weeks to ensure you’re working with a well-oiled machine! #trynewthings #kettlebellwork #balance #stability #flexibility #workforit #foundation #foundationiskey #journey

In this video I am performing the contralateral loaded Bulgarian split squat (holding the DB on the opposite side of the forward leg). In doing so, I’ll recruit more muscle groups for stabilization resulting in core training without a single crunch. This is a unilateral exercise that challenges core control, stability and balance. - In training we want to be able to carry over as much strength as possible from the gym into our daily lives, because getting stronger is super helpful in ALL situations & helps us function better. For instance, you’ll run into asymmetrical loads & unbalanced objects countless times throughout the day just by carrying groceries, your child on your hip or picking up a suitcase & these loads demand core stability. - So by adding a core stability component to lower body training, the Bulgarian split squat in this case, we get more bang for our buck, increase core control & train the obliques to resist lateral flexion. - Contralateral Loaded Bulgarian Split Squat Instructions 1. Set up in a split stance with the back leg elevated on a bench & a dumbbell in the opposite hand as the forward leg. (Do not progress into the loaded version until you have mastered the bodyweight version) 2. Descend by flexing both knees simultaneously and continue until the back knee comes as close to the floor as possible directly beneath the hip 3. Drive through the front foot and extend the knee as you return to the starting position 4. You do not need to be completely upright as you complete the movement. On the contrary, you should have a slight forward lean and focus on keeping your lumbar spine neutral. - Note: For reference I’m using a 50lb DB here. I had made 2 videos, one for each stance, but I accidentally deleted the other 🤦‍♀️. So, If you want to emphasize the quads during the movement, focus on taking a slightly smaller split stance & driving up through the ball of the front foot. If you want to emphasize the 🍑& hamstrings during the movement, focus on taking a slightly larger split stance & driving up through the heel of the front foot. - #bulgariansplitsquats #fitgirlsrock #beboldbebadassbeyou #splitsquats #contralateralload

Cooking up some #TRX goodness. Those get me a little breathy! Could I get more bang for my buck if I went faster, sure. You know what a ballistic exercise is without the control? It's called an injury. I prefer doing my work slower. On the slower side is where you gain the stability. On the slower side is where you create the control. On the slower side is where you build the strength. Once you get all that, then go as fast as you like. . . . . . . #fitspo #fitness #yoga #bodyweighttraining #core #trxtraining #getyourstrapon #strengthandconditioning #strengthtraining #representationmatters #healthyliving #namaste #workout #mobility #stability #balance #melanin #movement #committosomething #Equinox #fitover40

optimalexistenceyoga. From the very nascent Stages of Yoga’s development, the original foreb

From the very nascent Stages of Yoga’s development, the original forebears of this practice knew that the gateway to liberation (moksha) was the body, whether by austerity or conscious indulgence of the senses. In the various traditions of the Yoga Dharma, a central feature that has not, and cannot, be left out is the indispensable role that the human body plays in traversing the path toward Moksha. The actual term for what we referred to as the body, “kaya-sarira” is more completely defined and understood by the word “embodiment”. As every bit of the known universe, as well as yoga, has evolved, so has the techniques pertaining to using the body. One of these is the voluntary manipulation of our facial expressions. The more fascinating attribute of the human organism is the Vagus nerve. The Vagus, also referred to as the “10th Cranial Nerve”, is the main component of the parasympathetic nervous system, that has connections through the mouth, ears, throat, and stems down to our heart, lungs, and digestive system. This nerve is known to exert some of the biggest influence on our physiology, and therefore our states of consciousness. How we can see this operate is when our physiological/inner states affect or facial expressions. If we’re happy and content, our faces display it, often times helplessly to our own conscious control. In the work in discovery of one of America’s greatest psychologists, Paul Eckman, it was illustrated that this pathway is it just a one-way street. Our faces are not just mere display screens of our inner life, but can and do exert influence over our inner life as well. When we adopt certain expressions, with an appropriate amount of commitment, we can begin to similarly affect the neural circuitry running down through our heart, respiratory, and digestive systems. As we learn to do this we discover that we can actually manufacture a desirable inner state. It is one of the most subtle and at the same time most effective techniques that we can adopt in the practice. We cover this and much more in our workshops and trainings on the wholistic way of life through Yoga. Check link in profile for more info Enjoy your practice!! ❤️🙏🏽💚

We know that bony position has a

THE IMPACT OF POSITION ON CAPACITY . We know that bony position has a tremendous impact on mechanics via the orientation of tissues (concentric, eccentric), the relationship of bones to one another, and the distribution of stress based on what tissues are subjected to the stress. . However, position can have a tremendous impact on physiology, capacity, and the consequences of training as well. . Tissues that exist in a chronic state of concentric orientation (aka are always being put in a shortened position by one or both of their attachment sites being moved closer together) are tissues that live in a low oxygen environment and are unable to effectively clear the byproducts of energy metabolism. . To understand why, we need to understand what happens when a muscle contracts. As the muscle contracts it compresses the surrounding blood vessels, when it lengthens, the compression is released. This actually aids in creating a pumping action to and from the muscle, which assists in the rapid and efficient delivery of fresh blood and O2 to the tissue and the removal of metabolic byproducts such as CO2, inorganic phosphate, H+ ions, lactate (for use in other tissue), etc. . This is analogous to kinking a garden hose and then releasing it. Velocity and pressure momentarily increase on either side of the kink, but if the kink is not released, the flow of water will be halted. . This is exactly what happens when we ask a muscle that is constantly concentrically- oriented to perform work. If we cannot move the muscle’s attachment sites further away from each other, then the muscle remains contracted throughout, and actually occludes the blood vessels. Instead of being able to compress and relax, allowing for blood flow in and out, the muscle cuts it off entirely because it remains in a shortened, contracted position. . The result is the byproducts of energy metabolism accumulate rapidly because they can’t be removed, and/or no fresh, oxygenated blood can get to the tissue. The pH of the tissue drops, and the blood becomes more acidic. We are essentially performing blood flow restriction training at this point. CONTINUED IN COMMENTS #thebigpicture

Things don’t always go according to plan. Take a breath and be flexible. 🔹Today I’ve been busy moving the rest of our stuff to the new apartment (as you can see there is stuff everywhere). It’s also pouring down rain outside so I couldn’t get out for my interval work. I have a slideboard so I used it to my advantage-did the same exact same intervals; it’s obviously not as specific but I can still train the systems I want to train even though I don’t get the benefit of more time on the bike. No biggie, I got the work done and I’ll live to fight another day. 🔹Rested 20-30 mins after my interval training and got in a bit of strength work as well. A little bit of creativity can go a long way. 🔹Stick to your principles but be flexible in your methods. 🔹One other thing that I want to note-my knees are pretty much inside my ankles the whole time on the slideboard, which is ideal for acceleration angles and change of direction. If you subscribe to the thought that your knees should always be over your toes, might want to rethink that before you blow out an ACL or get your ankles broken trying to move.

Left to right side soft tissue treatment comparison. These are short term soft tissue changes that help a lot with training when decreased blood flow, decreased contractibility and fascia limitations are present. There are no long term ROM improvements being done here. That takes time, input and repetition. However you can see a large difference between the left and right oblique and abdominal walls which were pulling on his abs and ribcage creating rotation. There’s also more separation between his left pec and anterior delt which was causing some excessive internal rotation issues. We finished with some left lat and left oblique intentional contractions.

Threading the needle🌀 • I love my Thursday mornings because I get to go to work a little later than usual. I’ve started dedicating those mornings to mobility and flexibility by focusing on more stretching and functional movements. This exercise, which is called threading the needle, is used for things such as shoulder stability and thoracic rotation. A great way to start the morning, I feel it is very beneficial to someone like me since my shoulder stability isn’t the greatest and my thoracic rotation is not nearly what it used to be. Also, I want to start golfing and getting that rotation is so crucial! Feels good to get more mobility again!💪🏽👊🏽 • Happy Thursday y’all! I’ve got weigh-ins in two days to compete in a wrestling tournament in Wildwood, NJ in a tournament called War At The Shore! It’s gonna be a great time because being able to step on the at and still do what I do is something that not every person gets to do! Hope everyone has a great end to the work week!🤘🏽😊 • • • #fitness #exercise #workout #training #nutrition #protein #lift #cardio #lean #cleaneating #healthyfood #moderation #inspiration #motivation #workoutmotivation #workhard #sweat #progress #balance #aesthetic #physique #bodybuilding #consistency #athlete #thursday #thoracicmobility #shoulder #back #stability #injuryprevention
