Change your congnitive and physical HABITS to correct your MOVEMENT, and live pain-free!! "Thin
Today, we will discover the evidence, power and influence of Habits, and how it can improve your movement, health and performance. Why is it so important to correct our movements by changing our biomechanical habit? In a none creepy way, I have always been curious about human behavior and why we do things the way we do. So naturally I people watch, all the time, sometimes I get caught gawking and sure it's pretty damn awkward especially when I'm out with friends. My focus alw
The dreaded and evil - FLAT FOOT SYNDROM
Typically with flat feet, overactive and underactive muscles propagate mechanical imbalances and musculoskeletal abnormalities which lead to multiple foot and ankle injuries. I have first-hand experience, genetically speaking, I am prone to ankle sprains and strains with different severity. Once, I broke my 5th metatarsal due to a minor ankle roll as I was simply walking on an uneven surface (yard). Overworked and overly tight muscles: PeronealComplex Lat. Gastrocnemius
Squashing the misconceptions about SQUATS (part 1)
I noticed an interesting buzz when I began searching for the best-evidence-based approach and technique to squatting. Interestingly enough, the adverse effect of full squats has become one of the greatest impacts on the sport of weightlifting and CrossFit. Although, The Knee in Sports by Karl K. Klein and Fred L. Allman Jr was written in 1961, significant amounts of studies have conjured from his work. Today we have a plethora, literally a massive amount, of misinformation se
The Importance of Resting in between high intensity workouts or interval training.
Oxygen deficit and oxygen debt Does anyone know why its important to actually rest in between sets? (high intensity loads) Does anyone know what Lactate Acid is? Does anyone know how Lactate Acid can affect your system? Does it make you sore? Does anyone know how we can take Lactate Acid and turn it into more energy? When we start exercising (or moving), energy is produced and delivered free of oxygen (anaerobically), called Oxygen Deficit. However, there is no such thing as
The CrossFit athletes: The importance of identifying muscle imbalance which may lead to poor techniq
The elite “sport fitness” phenomena, CrossFit has swept the nation with its addictive and “must try" personality. Participants from a wide range of athleticism are required to master the Workout of the Day (WOD) and beat Personal Records (PRs). The WOD and PRs are a series of calisthenics that are time sensitive, and so speed plays an important role. CrossFit, for the most part, encompasses Olympic Weightlifting, dead lifts, and calisthenics, which dominantly applies the squa
How Olympic Weightlifting changed my philosophy
September 12, 2014 By: Bardia Shemirani In retrospect, CrossFit has been perceived by many as the "reckless, dangerous, deadly, life-threatening, and dubious" sport "trend." It seems like yesterday when I read the New York Times headlined "Getting Fit, Even If It Kills You." CrossFit is at a battle between its believers and critics. Interestingly enough, work requires me to help injured people regain mobility, strength, and functional status. I have treated many CrossFit, Yog

What is PNF, Muscle Spindles, and Golgi Tendon Organ?
Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching is a treatment approach used to regain range of motion (ROM), release excessive muscle tightness during physical rehabilitation, and improve athletic performance (1)(2). Notably, the movement patterns of PNF are similar to normal human functional movement, termed "mass movement" by Knott, Voss, and colleagues in 1985. The patterns are spiral and diagonal which are the same movements used in our Active Daily Life (ADL)
