Passive inputs 👉 Passive results
Active inputs 👉 Active results

▫️foam rolling/lacrosse ball = PASSIVE input
▫️joint distractions (ex. w resistance bands) w stretching = PASSIVE input
▫️static stretching = PASSIVE input
▫️back extension over roller roller/ball = PASSIVE inputs
▫️traditional soft tissue/manual therapy techniques = PASSIVE input
▫️muscle ‘facilitation’ techniques = PASSIVE input

Jeremy Piven- @jeremypiven - getting his next series of hip and shoulder homework exercises today.

We talked a lot about the demands of being on the road for his work, and I told him I could relate. Between acting and comedy, Jeremy is all over the country year round, and hotel-life isn’t always easy.

Today we went over some add-on movements to his already existent morning routine (CARs) to try and combat the odd lifestyle of frequent travel.

I appreciate Jeremy’s interest in learning about the why’s and how’s of taking care of his body- and not just trying to learn an exercise for sets and reps.

Stay tuned.

Always enjoy ending the @functionalrangeconditioning two day mobility specialist certification with a sample @kinstretch class for the new practitioners in our community. I want to thank everyone who attended for giving me their all after an intensive two days.

The programming mobility training follows the same physiological laws as all of the other tenants of athleticism (strength, power, speed, etc.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Still have @bell.josh19 coming in during his off season from the @pittsburghpirates and his progress is coming along nicely.

This was at the end of our session yesterday. We finished a full session of PAILs/RAILs and ended with some Level 2 CARs and Capsular CARs to get as much afference to the capsule as possible post-training session.

During the @functionalrangeconditioning training- Josh brought up an old hamstring injury that he “played through” and never rehabbed properly.

At the end of the video, you’ll see Josh’s introduction to his new homework exercise to slowly re-train that hamstring to function again in a short position, even though we are years out from the injury.

We cannot just re-learn to function mid-range when the sport will demand force production in mid, long, and short ranges throughout the athletic endeavor.

As expected (for me, I didn’t warn Josh)- it doesn’t go well at first. Stay tuned, will post progress as the off season continues.

One of the best things I’ve done for my hips, and subsequently my low back, have been to train internal rotation. Multiple decades of dance training and lots of yoga asana had me so out of balance that just the smallest amount of training and input has made an incredible improvement in the aches and pains I had grown to ignore.
Thanks again, I say this like once a week now-LOL, to @hunterfitness for breaking me down to help build me back up.
