It’s our one true human super power.
I say it all the time to whoever will listen because WE ALL POSSESS THIS SUPER POWER that—when tapped and leveraged—not only empowers and enhances our performance but, (and I would argue, more importantly) also enables optimal recovery.
But “Just Breathe” isn’t enough. We need to be empowered with an understanding of breathing biomechanics so we can unravel compensations and dysfunction and retrain/restore functional breathing. Unfortunately, due to stress, illness, injury, and myriad other lifestyle reasons, most of us have developed less-than-optimal compensatory breathing patterns that adversely impact diaphragm function, ribcage position, rib kinematics, overall posture & movement and more, which cause a cascading chain reaction of dysfunction impacting virtually all of our bodies functions from our physiology to our physicality and psychology.
That’s why I’ve made it my life’s mission to empower people with the necessary information and tools to:
These are a few slides from my recovery presentation at the @nscaofficial TSAC Conference a couple weeks ago. I look forward to giving similar presentations (both lectures and hands on) at future NSCA events this year, including the NSCA Delaware Chapter Conference May 4th & 5th, NSCA Ontario Chapter Conference May 11 & 12th and NSCA Personal Trainers Conference in Baltimore October 5th-7th.
