T-Spine Rotation Passive Range Lift-Offs
Can you rotate your thoracic spine actively? If not, your ability to create torque through hip and shoulder separation during the backswing can be limiting your yardage from the tee box. Here’s one drill to start incorporating into your movement preparation for a healthier spine and longer drives.
In this video, @frankduffyfitness is using the PVC pipe and squat rack to get him close to his end-range of motion passively. From there, he’s actively trying to rotate off of the squat rack while keeping his shoulders square. By using a half-roller between his legs, he’s ensuring that rotation is coming from his spine without any hip movement.
Give it a try and let us know what you think! @joegambinodpt#controlyourself#cspfamily
Regrann from @thefootcollective - Humans evolved a thick, robust achilles tendon to act as a shock absorber when running. To shelter our joints upstream from impact forces but also to recycle stored energy to improve running efficiency
These springs don’t work if you heel strike - a technique only made possible (and in fact promoted) by heel cushioned running shoes. It’s a major culprit for running injuries and lost performance
Ditch the cushioned shoes (responsibly) and change your running technique to a midfoot strike for the sake of your joints
Soft tissue injuries can be debilitating and frustrating. Graston therapy is successful in effectively treating soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute or post-surgical. Graston therapy can help you enjoy life again.
IASTM (Instrumemt assissted soft tisue mobilisation) aka Graston therapy is the treatment of scar tissue and fascial restrictions that allow for restoring range of motion, eliminating pain, and restoring normal function.
