3 Most Common Injuries…

I was reading the latest issue of Milo from Ironmind this past week. One sentence from and article by Mike Waller, Ph.D., C.S.C.S, NSCA-CPT caught my eye: “Reviewing articles that cover the most common injury sites for a given sport is recommended, so that the top three areas of concern can be determined.” This was […]

Walking may kill you faster…

A new study just came out showing that walking may not be so great for you…if you are doing it in a polluted area. This study was from the Lancet, titled “Respiratory and cardiovascular responses to walking down a traffic-polluted road compared with walking in a traffic-free area in participants aged 60 years and older […]

The Recovery Mat

This is something I have personally been using for quite some time, but haven’t let anyone know about, until now. That is laying on top of an acupressure mat after working out.

5 Minute Intuitive Mobility Routine

I figured it might be helpful to share an example of me doing an “intuitive mobility” routine. By intuitive, I mean that I’m not just doing the 3 circles per joint, then move onto the next. I start with a movement, feel into my body, and let that guide what I do next. In doing […]

Twisting Cross Leg Squat

I was flowing around with some of the stand up exercises, and stumbled across this one that I particularly liked. First is a cross leg squat until sitting. If you’re not familiar with this move, it is also the method used in the sitting-raising test. This is then done in a twisting motion from one […]
