I just read this quote in @nutritiousmovement book Move Your DNA and I had to post it. I implore you to read it a few times to realize how powerful this really is. I immediately related it to something @stopchasingpain always says, follow the crazy shit path. Now is the time to seize the moment! Go do something outside of your comfort zone and grow as a human! ——-

I may be paraphrasing Thomas Wells here because he was blitzing my brain with information, but this was one that I caught. Compensations aren’t bad. In fact we are constantly compensating for one thing or another every day. It’s the ones that linger that become the problem. That’s when the compensation becomes permanent. The problem grows substantially when you start to build strength around that dysfunction. That’s when you’re on the fast track to pain and eventually injury. ———

The shape of a tree is directly correlated to the forces provided to them. Once again, dropping some knowledge from Dr. Spina, if force is the language of cells, and movement is what we say, then we need to make sure we speak clearly. When I took the FRC course back in April, he said something that I’m still trying to wrap my head around. He said he doesn’t exercise, he moves. No matter where he goes in his office or his home, he has some sort of implement that requires him to move with it. That way, he’s constantly moving his body in different ways. Im going to make a conscious effort to move towards that practice. I’m reading a movement book right now so a lot of my posts are going to be based on movement. 😬

Dr. Andreo Spina said something like this in a podcast I listened to recently. He was talking about his definition of what a functional movement was. The reality is, all movement is functional. It’s important to not get caught up in our own personal bias. All of that being said, I’ve been a CrossFit athlete since 2010 and a sports massage therapist since 2015. Through my education I have received over the last 3 plus years, I have learned that I was not as good of a mover as I thought I was. Meaning, the barbell hides a lot of dysfunction and compensation. As my own personal training methodology evolves, I use a lot more dumbbells, kettle bells, steel clubs, and now, through FRC, my own body. Things I used to laugh at (bicep curls) are now a regular part of my training. By now you’re probably thinking “Cool rant bro, what are you trying to say.” Use both shoulders independently before you do shoulder press, push press or jerks. Use body building to build up the back of your shoulder since CrossFit is so heavy on the anterior portion. Move both legs independently before you squat. Do bicep curls to help you with your pull ups. Move you joints through every plane of motion in your warm ups. Functional training for the win! ——-

So. Much. Love. for this lady. @stephrothstein has been such a solid consistency in my running life for almost as long as I can remember. She pushes me to achieve new goals and gives me the tools and advice to meet them. Plus she’s such an inspiration in her own right! Mom, superwoman, extraordinary runner, and U.S. champion. I’m so proud to call her my coach and my friend. Thank you for #brucecamp, Steph (and Ben)! I love this experience every year! #runningwiththebruces #runnningcamp #altitudecamp #flagstaffrunning

Fourth and final day of #brucecamp took us back to the Waterline, a beautiful trail that was ravaged by wildfires years ago and still bears the scars, as evidenced by the remnants of dead, burned trees. It also starts at 8500 ft and climbs for miles. This natural arch is 2 miles up (9400 feet!!), and I’m not sure I’ve ever run the entire way up to it without stopping to catch my breath. Apparently the third time’s the charm, because today I did it easy peasy. 🙌🏻 I was so sad to see camp end, but so proud of how much progress I’ve made to be able to run at the level I did at altitude this time, that I rewarded myself with my favorite @diabloburger 😍🍔🤤 Flag, you’ve been awesome! I can’t wait to see you again! ❤️🌲🗻 #runningwiththebruces #hokaoneone #runningcamp #altitudecamp #flagstaffrunning #7000feet #8500feet

Anticipatory regulation of performance. This is a very interesting phenomenon that I’ve seen countless time coaching through the years. Telling yourself that you’re too tired or not strong enough or not good enough. Telling yourself that your performance was good enough and talking yourself into failing before you even try. I’ve done this twice. In my second and third Jiu Jitsu tournaments. My second one, my first match was a wrestler and after a 3 minute assault that resulted in a submission win for me, I was so tired that I literally talked myself into accepting second place before I even stepped back on the mat. Facing another wrestler, I tapped to a submission that I easily escaped once, because I gave up before we even started.
My 3rd tournament, I won my first match by advantage. My second match was with a substantially larger opponent. I convinced myself that there was no way I could take him down and, once again, allowed myself to think that second place was acceptable. I half heartedly pulled guard and allowed the opponent an easy victory.
You’re never out of the fight. Failure isn’t a bad thing. It means you tried. If you try and fail, there’s no regret attached. ———

Day 3 of #brucecamp: crushed a long run on Woody Mountain Road, surprised with a lecture from none other than Olympian Jared Ward (!), and hung out with endurance sports writer Matt Fitzgerald. I shall call this #fangirl day. Jared talked about the mental side of running, something he had a lot of experience with during the 2016 Olympic marathon trials, where he made the U.S. team in blisteringly hot conditions. It was fascinating and gave me a lot to think about with my own running tolerance (or lack thereof at times). #runningwiththebruces #hokaoneone #runningcamp #altitudecamp #flagstaffrunning

Day 2 of #brucecamp = busier than expected! From frolicking in the aspens at 8,500 feet elevation (oxygen is SO overrated), to a much-needed @ntrecovery session, to watching @stephrothstein and @rachschneid18 show us how strides really get done, the day was full of learning and fun. Plus I ran a 38 sec 200m time trial! #winning #runningwiththebruces #hokaoneone #timetofly #runningcamp #altitudecamp #flagstaffrunning #flagstaff #8500feet

- Meaning, be barefoot more often and make sure those bare feet touch the actual earth. Challenge those feet by walking on river rocks. - Spend time in the sun. Watch the sun rise and sun set. - Eat food that needs sunlight for survival. Also eat food that eats the food that needs sunlight for survival. - Make sleep a priority. - Find a community of like minded people. - Find a movement practice and change it up every once in awhile. ———

#brucecamp day 1 is in the books! Perfectly cool and breezy run at Buffalo Park, followed by social time at the local Flagstaff haunts. I figured the amazing salad with prosciutto made up for the @innout burger and fries from earlier, but eh, it doesn’t even matter because life is about balance. #runningwiththebruces #timetofly #hokaoneone #runningcamp #altitudecamp #7000ft #flagstaffrunning #flagstaff

“Just like a smile or a frown, the words in your head have the power to influence the very feelings they’re supposed to reflect.” - Alex Hutchinson, Endure. This one is really important for my CrossFit athletes. The way you talk to yourself matters. Saying things like “This is awful.””I can’t do this.””This is the worst.” actually make the workout more difficult for you to endure. Change your narrative. Try encouraging yourself. “I got this!””What a great challenge this is!””I’m proud of myself for getting through that!” Every time you get stuck in a workout, take a second, take a few deep breaths, smile, and be grateful for the fact that you’re such a capable human. Each workout you complete makes you a more formidable human. Take the time to celebrate the fact that you’re accomplishing things other humans wish the could do. ———

The way you talk to yourself matters. It takes practice to build a practice of a positive mindset and even longer to make it a habit.
1. Recognize the negativity
2. Refuse to believe the negative thoughts
3. Relax. Take 10-20 big deep slow breaths.
4. Reframe your thoughts to a more positive and up lifting mindset.
5. Resume your activity with a renewed sense of optimism.
6. Repeat as often as possible.

I got these steps from Alex Hutchinson’s book Endure. Epic read so far! I highly recommend it. #nerdstrongbookclub

It’s time to get out of the mindset of a victim. They didn’t do anything to you, they just didn’t live up to your preconceived expectations of them. That event didn’t happen to you, it happened for you. Stop, breathe, then analyze the feelings and determine if they are yours or someone else’s. If they’re yours deal with them. If they’re somebody else’s, let them go. Move forward with the mindset that your life is your fault. ———-

Stretching temporarily decreases force absorption capacity in your tissues. Meaning stretching before an athletic endeavor will make you more prone to injury. So stretch after, and take your time. It takes at least 2 minutes to get a proper stretch. And then make sure you create force at the end ranges in order to convince the nervous system that you own that new found flexibility. Yup, it takes time and patience. So take the time.

Changing the narrative of failure is a game changer. The second you think of failing as something positive, your life changes. Focus on the new potential, the new opportunities, and the new doors that have opened to you instead of wallowing in past failures that no longer have relevance to your current situation. ———

Diet, instagram, Facebook, emotional eating, watching too much tv, not getting enough sleep, gossip, leaving late, you name it, there’s a bad habit that EVERYONE has. It’s a lot easier to stay in those habits then it is to break them. It takes hard work and conscious effort. Ultimately that conscious effort will lead to healthier habits and make you a better you. As Jocko says “Discipline = Freedom.” ——-

Celebrate every victory you have, no matter how small it is. Did you wake up early? Awesome! Give yourself credit every time you do. Did you resist the temptation of dessert? Celebrate it. Did you finish reading that book? Celebrate it. Here’s the big one, did you take that shopping cart all the way back to the shopping cart corral? Boom! Then you are well on your way to being a successful human!
Those little celebrations add up and eventually you realize that you’re a pretty successful person. That’s where confidence is born. That’s how we build self worth. Now get out there and open some doors for people! ———

Another week has passed and I have had a few good and a few bad days with my IT Band. I am up to 7 miles a day and that’s definitely a positive! Todays run at Buffalo Park was a great day for the part of my IT Band that typically has been bad, which is around the knee. But, it seems that the strengthening and form changes I have made, have caused the tension to move up to my hip area. But hey! I will take it. With injuries, all we can do is to take it one day at a time!
———————————————————————
Training tip of the day- It’s better to go into a marathon 5% under trained than 5% over trained. One good way to combat over training is by running 2-3minutes per mile slower than your 5k race pace on your easy/recovery days. Keeping it conversational is key! Today I ran 7:15 pace and that is about 2:45 a mile slower than my 5k Road PR of 4:30 pace.

Research is great, but can hinder/delay progress and creativity. Having a comprehensive understanding of HOW the human body works certainly lends to the ability to make determinations about WHAT will improve function. Find someone who KNOWS what they are doing, and do it. Coach @christophersommer1 once told me a story about researchers telling him how to improve his athletes. His response was that what he was doing has worked every time, how about researching that because that’s what he’s going to keep doing! 🤣

Mindset matters. How you speak to yourself matters. And the only thing that you can control is yourself and how you react to events. Your expectations of people or events are irrelevant because you have no control over them. Instead of having expectations of individuals in your life, appreciate that they are there. Instead of expecting certain events to come out a certain way, appreciate the fact that you get to experience these events. ———

I have to remind myself of this one on a regular basis. I have questions just like anyone else “How am I not busier?” “How are they getting more business then me?” “How do they know all this stuff?” “Where did they get all of this information?” “How are they getting more clients?” The reality is, I’ve only been in this full time for 3.5 years. I’m planning on doing this for the rest of my life. I’m early in the process. I have time. I need to be patient. I need to focus on what I’m doing and not what they’re doing. I need to stay true to the culture I’ve created in my business. I need to stay humble. I need to be patient. I have to grind it out and pay my dues just like everyone else. I need to be where I am and let action arise out of that being. ——— #kokoromovement #fpo #functionalperformanceoptimization #athleterecovery #functionalbodybuilding #nkt #neurokinetictherapy #anf #anf_therapy #rocktape #rockblades #frc #functionalrangeconditioning #controlyourself

Y’all... it as has been the most amazing few days of running a girl could ask for. From #flagstaff twice in a couple of days some valley running and them then some trail at the #whitetankmountains a #runner like me couldn’t ask for more! I do have to say that we here in #arizona have the best #runningcommunity ❤️... The definition of community is a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common, but quite honestly I feel like it’s much much more than that. I feel like community is people that take care of each other. I hope you have a community that you have this much love for and that you guys take care of each other the way that we do here I wish you all a happy #fridayjr .

Happy almost weekend to you, be safe and do good things, and as always don’t forget to move your beautiful bodies 💃🕺

Long post alert! But I promise it’s worth the read. This one is from another stellar book recommendation from @flowforcerehab.
———
“A Buddhist legend tells of a young farmer who was covered with sweat as he paddled his boat up the river. He was going upstream to deliver his produce to the village. He was in a hurry. It was a hot day and he wanted to make his delivery and get home before dark. As he looked ahead, he spied another vessel heading rapidly downstream toward his boat. This vessel seemed to be making every effort to hit him. He rowed furiously to get out of the way, but it didn’t seem to help. He yelled at the other vessel, “Change direction you idiot! You’re going to hit me. The river is wide. Be careful!” His screaming was to no avail. The other vessel hit his boat with a sickening thud. He was enraged as he stood up and cried out to the other vessel, “You moron! How could you manage to hit my boat in the middle of this wide river? What is wrong with you? How could you manage to hit my boat in the middle of this wide river? What is wrong with you?” As he looked agh the other vessel, he realized that there was no one in the other boat. He was screaming at an empty vessel that had broken free of its moorings and was going downstream with the current. The lesson is simple. There is never anyone in the other boat when we are angry, we are screaming at an empty vessel.” - What Got You Here Won’t Get You There - Mashell Goldsmith, Mark Reiter

My equation for muscle failure is as follows:
Stimulus provided to the tissues > The endurance capacity of the tissues = Muscle failure.
If you proceed with the stimulus that caused the muscle failure, the prime movers become the synergist and the synergist becomes the prime mover. That then becomes a neurological movement dysfunction.
Basically a smaller muscle group starts doing the work of a bigger muscle group and I assure you, they are not happy about. That’s where Neuro Kinetic Therapy comes in. This modality effectively tracks down these compensations and gets rid of them giving the body a sigh of relief and allowing the body to function properly again. ———

Jordan Peterson’s book the 12 Rules For Life has a chapter in it called “Treat yourself like someone you are responsible for helping.” That being said, the lesson I’m currently learning is, you have to truly value yourself before you can truly support somebody else. Meaning you have to value yourself before you can change your behavior to better support the people around you.

Boom! @rocktape to the rescue! I’ve had a client with chronic knee pain that I couldn’t quite get a handle on. Ive noticed a couple of things when she’s running including valgus collapse of her knees and slight internal rotation of the femur, amongst other things.
Then, in a moment of clarity after watching an IG TV post of Perry Nickelston’s where he talks about taping the system, I thought “Tape the dysfunctional system? Tape the dysfunctional system!!” So I did, and the results were pretty profound in my opinion.
The videos, in order of appearance are, running without shoes, with shoes, with tape and without shoes, with tape and with shoes. Let me know what you guys think, and or what I can improve on!

If you haven’t listened to @mobilitywod The Ready State podcast with @hubermanlab, I promise you, you’re missing out.
This portion of the podcast is talking about the benefit of changing your narrative. Stress is a good thing. Pain is a good thing. Fear is a good thing. Failure is a good thing. Being wrong is a good thing. Be vulnerable is a good thing. Changing weaknesses into strengths in your thought process can have a huge impact on your life and the way you see the world. This podcast is phenomenal.

This was one of those moments where you hear the same thing multiple times from multiple people, but you don’t really hear it until somebody says it the right way. I was watching @stopchasingpain IG tv episode on taping the lateral subsystem with @rocktape and as he was talking it finally clicked. Tape movement not muscles. Sometimes the message comes when you need to hear it. And sometimes it comes again when you have a better understanding of the base material required to understand it. And sometimes all of the information you’ve gathered over the last couple years ties together and epiphanies happen. Never stop learning my friends!

Change in tissues = force/time. If the client presents with an injury and they say something like “It was bugging me for awhile, but now it really hurts.” Then it is important that they understand that multiple treatments may be necessary and the practitioner may not be able to correct the issue in one shot. Because, if the injury is chronic, then they most likely have been generating force through faulty mechanics long enough to change the tissues. And it will be a collaborative effort to restore proper function. Meaning the client will have to complete whatever homework is assigned in conjunction with the consistent treatments from the practitioner, in order to change the tissues back to their pre injury happy place.
That being said, any treatments that provide pain killers or shots are only covering up the issue, not getting rid of it. Dr. Sidney Baker uses tacs, I use dog shit. If your dog shits on the floor and you cover it up with news paper, the problem isn’t gone. The practitioner and the client need to work diligently together to get rid of the shit.
Check out the interview with Dr. Sidney Baker on the Stop Chasing Pain Podcast, it’s a good one!

How do you talk to yourself? What is your internal dialogue? If someone else said the same thing to you, would you be upset or encouraged? How you speak to yourself matters because that narrative then spreads to the people you surround yourself with. You should sit with yourself often without any distractions and listen to yourself. This is how we grow to become the people we want to be.

“I have a high pain tolerance because I’m in pain all of the time.” I’ve heard this multiple times standing in line at the grocery store. A basic definition of of what we are talking about is, some part of your body thinks it’s in danger and sends that message to your brain in the form of pain.
That means that there is something wrong and it needs to be addressed. That responsibility lies with you and nobody else.
If you have read this far, you may need help and I can help you. Contact me so we can disrupt the pattern that is causing you pain and get you on the correct path for recovery.

Own your mindset, own your day! Do you ever look at people and wonder “How does that person accomplish all of that in one day?” There’s a couple of answers, but the best answer is, they just do it. One task at a time. The moral of the story? Go do stuff.

This one is for all my sports massage therapists out there! I’ve been running into this a lot over the last week or so. Sometimes I get so caught up in trying to fix the initial complaint that I forget there may be other stuff effect that area. Don’t be afraid to take a second, take a step back and ask yourself “Ok, what’s really going on here.” Is it truly a muscle, ligament, tendon or joint? Or is it inflammation, emotion, or somewhere upstream or down stream on the fascial line? Is it gait? Or stress? Scar? Gut? Liver? Spleen? When you ask questions, you get answers!

"Because of the importance of the symptom imperative, I’m going to repeat the rationale behind it. If the psyche has induced a physical symptom (such as back pain) or an emotional symptom (such as depression), which is then temporarily relieved in some fashion without dealing with the underlying emotional dynamic, the psyche will simply create another symptom to take its place." from "The Divided Mind: The Epidemic of Mindbody Disorders" by John E. Sarno

I walked into day one of Functional Range Conditioning at EXOS and there was this message, big as life, right when you walk in. I can’t imagine a better message to start the day. If you roll out of bed and think “This day is going to suck.” Or you think “This day is going to be awesome.” Either way, your right. So choose wisely. Your thoughts matter.

How fascinating is this!? This is your brain on breathing. You can see how much movement there is right!? Now imagine your brain movement while you’re taking shorter breaths into your chest as compared to longer diaphragmatic breaths. Now imagine the lack of oxygen going to your brain if you’re breathing through your mouth and blowing off too much Co2. What if you took a breathing break every hour and took 5 minutes to take slow diaphragmatic breaths through your nose to replenish oxygen to your brain? How much better would your brain function be?

We assume the brain is stationary but it is not. Amazing video from researchers @stanford @stanford.med NICHD and Stevens Institute of Technology funded by @nihgov showing breathing-induced and blood-flow related movements of the brain stem, thalamus and cortex using amplified NMR (aMRI; pulse-based imaging).

The RockBlades course last weekend was a blast! For the first time, I was a host instead of the student and I’ve taken both courses already so it was an opportunity for me to learn how to teach instead of learning new information. @rocktape has there education dialed in and I’m beyond excited about the new courses and products they have coming out. If you haven’t taken a course from them yet or haven’t taken one in a few years, take one. And I highly recommend taking one again if it’s been awhile. You won’t regret it!

Keep challenging yourself. Never settle. Never give up. Never stay static. If a particular direction isn’t working, keep changing the direction ever so slightly until it works. Be adaptable. Celebrate every little victory. Learn from every mistake. Be like water.

I’m guilty of doing too much just as much as anybody. Listening to Joe Rogans Podcast with Jesse Itzler, he talked about scheduling 3 hrs a day to himself everyday. I’m going to try it out. No tv, no podcasts, no distractions. Just you. Workouts count as you time. Get after it!

I’ve been asking myself this question a lot over the last couple of weeks, “What am I learning right now?” How are these events that make you irritated, angry, sad, happy, grateful, making you a better person? I believe that self awareness is the most powerful weapon we have at our disposal. But sometimes it’s too easy to get caught up in the moment and get fully immersed in the emotions. What’s important is, if you do get caught up, bringing awareness back to yourself afterward. Personal growth takes practice, the more you flex that muscle, the better you get.

“Movement not only increases the health of joints, soft tissues, circulatory and respiratory systems, it has another important function. Educated movement is brain nourishing because it establishes and re-establishes fine functional sensory and motor representations in the brain, using pathways laid low by fear or ignorance. Our aim is to reach the orchestra to play all the tunes again, to regain its creativity, curiosity and resilience.”
- David S. Butler, Explain Pain

Are you an optimist or a pessimist? Do you focus on your successes no matter how big or small? Or do you focus on your failures no matter how big or small? Pay attention to where your focus is. The events in your life determine wether your successful or not.

Real power comes from knowing yourself. Material possessions, the people you hang out with, your house, your car, none of these things define you and any one of them can be gone in an instant. Then, you’re only left with yourself. So get a head start on getting to know you now, the good and the bad, because the potential for that journey being more difficult later on is very high.
