Well. If you haven’t seen it in my stories yet, here you go. ⠀ I do one a year. I thought I could escape the 2019 podcast but then I met @wellnessmama and spent a week with her in Finland. ⠀ After several days together, she said that her audience just had to hear some of the things I talked about throughout the week. ⠀ If you haven’t listened yet, it’s 75 min long and covers mobility, the morning routine, joint health, finding a provider in your area, and sports. ⠀ If you listened already, let me know what you thought in the comments below. 👇🏼 ⠀ Now I can go back under my podcast-repelling-Rock. Thank you in advance. 🤗 ⠀ Http:// ⠀

What personal trainers and physical therapists think is happening when they say your are “inhibited” and now we’re “activating” them. ⠀ - nonsense- if you couldn’t tell by the quotes. ⠀ When in turn- this video is happening (new neural connections) but all that’s connecting in their clients brains is “something doesn’t feel right” to “I need my trainer to activate things to feel right again” and that starts a loop of dependency on either their passive modalities and/or the trainer themself. ⠀ In reality- this is just a phenomenal video of our nervous system. I just couldn’t help and poke fun at the state of the industry, because that’s a part of what I do. 🤷🏼‍♂️ ⠀ @iflscience ・・・ This incredible time-lapse footage shows neurons connecting and growing. This is quite literally what your thoughts look like. Credit: / abahnson

✨Testimonial FRC Assistant Instructor @mosesbernard • • • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🧠THOUGHTS FROM THE WEST COAST🧠 ⠀ I wanted to give myself >1 week after the FRS summit a few weekends back to get my thoughts together before posting about it. ⠀ “How messed up is your reward system that you’d rather ‘get that muscle up’ than have a shoulder that actually works?”. -Dr. Andreo Spina (paraphrased). ⠀ This comment was said in passing, but there was something about its simplicity that got to me on a visceral level. ⠀ I only realized this a few years ago, but a single unifying theme has been part of almost everything I’ve done my entire life. From the sports I chose to do in elementary and high school, to majoring in Human Kinetics/Kinesiology in undergrad, to going to chiropractic school, to a (still ongoing) near obsession in post graduate continuing education courses. ⠀ This theme is based on answering just one question. A question that has literally kept me up at night more than once in my lifetime (🤓). ⠀ How do we get better at movement? ⠀ After literally spending 100s of 1000s in this education (degrees aren’t cheap), I can confidently say that the team at Functional Range Systems has helped me answer this question better than anyone in the industry. ⠀ They say if you’re the smartest guy in the room, it’s time to find a different room. Everytime I hear a lecture from @drandreospina @drmchivers @drjohnsaratsiotis or @deweynielsen I feel like a idiot. ⠀ Which is exactly where I want to be. ⠀ Everytime I hear a coaching cue or get feedback from @hunterfitness @getchimpy or @danajohnflows , I feel like I’ve never communicated effectively in my life. ⠀ These are the exact people I want to keep learning from. ⠀ And everytime I see a post from @beardthebestyoucanbe @coach_christinamarie or @kasiagalica about how much they’ve been able to change their own bodies by truly embracing FRS principles, I feel like I have no idea what the true limits of the human actually are. ⠀ These are the people I’m happy to call my colleagues. ⠀ And to anyone else I interacted with at all in California, thank you. I’m a

Understanding the degrees of freedom a joint has (or should have) is what allows you to identify mobility deficits, and therefore work on them. So many people want better ankle dorsiflexion. Ain’t nobody want to understand midfoot mechanics. 🤷🏼‍♂️ @deweynielsen ・・・ FRC x FRA PRO Certification with the Miami Dolphins. At FRS we don’t debate what a good or not good exercise is... that’s having the answer before any question has been asked. Instead we ask the why, what, when, how, who, etc. At the root of finding answerable questions, we must understand how the whole “Sapien Meat-Wagon” actually works and how it is currently functioning. Not sure anyone does this better than @drmchivers. ⠀ SCIENCE > OPINIONS 🧪 🧫 🧬 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Posted @withrepost@functionalrangeconditioning 🏈 Day 3 of the FRC x FRA PRO Certification with the @miamidolphins 🐬 training and therapy staff in Davie, FL 🇺🇸 • • • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🏈 Lead Instructor @drmchivers.discusses normal ankle and midfoot mechanics with Assistant Instructor @bryanmarugg , and how it pertains to proper analysis of the ankle using the FRA 📝. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🔻🔻🔻

Stop scrolling. Read the caption. ・・ @coach_christinamarie ・・・ “Oh..yeah. You’re getting older. That happens now.” . 👆🏽that’s what people told me when I told them how I‘d wake up with my shoulder in excruciating from sleeping with it straight up overhead and laying on it. I’d wake up and think “holy 💩. That so bad. There has to be something wrong with it. This can’t be right. I don’t even want to move because I know it’s going to suck.” I was told it was just part of getting older, and that’s the way it was going to be. . I also came to a point where throwing anything with my dominant arm would my shoulder( I got caught in a few too many kimuras in Bjj), so I stopped throwing anything with that arm. . When I was training for my first Muay Thai fight, I had to stop jump roping because my other shoulder didn’t like to hang out in that externally rotated position and that would too. So it was jump rope, or be able to throw a punch and “That’s just the way it was.” . Flash forward one year into applying @functionalrangeconditioning principles and training with @hunterfitness , and this morning I literally sprung out of bed to turn off my AC unit and never at any point felt stiff, stuck, or in . I realized after how funny and incredible that was. I don’t remember the last time I woke up with my shoulder ing me from “sleeping wrong”. . Yesterday in the gym I decided to test throwing something. No . . Guess what: It doesn’t have to be that way. It’s not just because you’re getting older, and it’s definitely not something to just accept. Make your work nice, and that dissipates along with it. . Now I get to coach this work, and I’m so grateful to pass this knowledge on to all of my clients. Grateful for all the people in this system smarter than me who continue to share their knowledge . . @functionalrangeconditioning . .
