Nice little read on external cueing by @nickwinkelman over at clubconnect.com. We're big proponents of Dr. Wulf's work (even if she is at that objectionable school in the South). Her work covers athletes, musicians, and firearms-all individuals that need to react reflexively. Check out Nick's piece and if you clear your morning, read her OPTIMAL theory of motor learning. @nevpt #gabrielewulf
One of my favorite articles. #ihavefavoriteresearch #geeksquad #Repost @chrisabeardsley ・・・ Long-term programs of stretching can increase flexibility (joint range of motion). However, the mechanisms by which flexibility increases are not well-understood by most recreational trainees. Indeed, there is evidence that intense programs of stretching, with progressively increasing external resistance can cause small ↑ in muscle fascicle length. However, the main mechanism by which joint range of motion is ↑ after stretching, is an ↑ in the tolerance to stretch. This has important implications for performance and injury prevention, as a change in stretch tolerance is unlikely to affect either of these. -------------------- #sandcresearch #strengthandconditioning #strengthtraining #strength #sportsscience #biomechanics #exercisescience #research #sciencetopractice #performance #science #infographic #infographics #hypertrophy #muscle #physicaltherapy #physiotherapy #stretching #fasciclelength #musclefasciclelength #staticstretching #flexible #flexibility #stretchtolerance
When we've turned our new grad into a cynic. Welcome to our fold. We just saved you thousands of dollars on bullshit courses and sounding like a used car salesman for the first 5 years of your career (I speak from experience). My work is here is done. @clinicalathlete @nevpt #nosillybs
Thanks for the shout bud! Always good trading ideas with you. Although I'm pretty sure I stole this from @mderek4011 or @michael.ray.dc but at this point, I've lost track. #Repost @drjewett07 ・・・ This is part of the reason I have been harping on eccentrics lately, especially as it relates to my Mastering the Basics workshop and then coming soon the MWOD Performance workshop. eccentrically loaded muscle is a shock absorber (like running) but it also is a powerful stiff spring. I see it time and again, people who just drop into the bottom of a squat or basically drop the bar on their chest for the bench or don't understand how to effectively use this to put several deadlifts and presses together smoothly. So many squats can be fixed by people just not going so fast. It's so obvious the point will be missed by many. Sure you can chase a perfect pistol to help fix your squat or RNT or some other PT thing but those usually are not as direct and then people get stuck thinking they have to get perfect at some rehab exercises before they can train. 🐂💩. Thanks for sharing some of your information with me @nevpt my brother in strength (especially the bench) #strengthandconditioning #mobilitywod #quitbeingsoft #fightdoughiness #gobeawesome #getstiff
@clinicalathlete when you settle your differences over small batch beer. @mderek4011 #walkthewalk
Eccentric overload! We are fortunate enough to be able to beta test some applications for the @electricweight and what better application than the deadlift?? This is 135lb barbell with approx 100lb concentric addition to a 200lbs additional on the eccentric paced at 2.0 sec. @chrisabeardsley @drjewett07
Great post from our boy @codymisuraca.dpt Check him out! #Repost @codymisuraca.dpt (@get_repost) ・・・ HIP IMPINGEMENT # Symptomatic hip impingement is often characterized by pinching pain in the groin or front/side of the hip during the squat. The approach to addressing this starts with (per usual) LOAD MANAGEMENT. While impingement is a natural component of deep hip flexion and is typically pain-free, often with loading and repetition over time the involved structures can become sensitized and painful. First and foremost, the TRAINING PROGRAM needs to be assessed, as it may be outpacing the body's ability to recover. Following this, several technical alterations can be made to modify the symptoms, demonstrated above in the following order: 1. (My) Regular 2. Wider stance 3. Toes out 4. Heels elevated 5. Higher bar position 6. Pelvic tilt (posterior) 7. Limit depth Each of these works to some degree by modifying the load on the sensitized structures, and some combination (preferably the minimum necessary) will typically allow one to continue loading and training the squat with minimized or no discomfort. Over time the squat can be slowly be moved back toward its original technique, or it may be deemed more efficient and remain unchanged. Either way, training is better than not training. # *DISCLAIMER: This information is for educational and entertainment purposes only and should not be considered medical advice.

Big thanks to Pacific Medical and @krukowc for hosting our team this weekend. A unique opportunity for our staff to actually perform the procedures we rehab in our clinic. Here we have @ezell.dakota and @lmdelloro03 performing a knee arthroscope. We pride ourselves on education here and opportunities like this are invaluable! @nevpt

#motivationmonday When your coach is asking why you haven't been completing your workouts, sometimes you have to remind him you're still savage AF. @gametimestrength
Psssssst. This isn't how our bodies work. First, correlating posture with dysfunction is problematic at best and fostering nocebo-isms at worst. Second, it's been shown throughout the literature that bracing the body to adopt a position only works for as long as the brace is in place. As soon as it's removed, we revert back to our normal. Save your money, deadlift more. @nevpt @clinicalathlete #deadliftscureall #nosillybs
Monday morning inspiration. Love this guy like a brother. And he's a helluva strength coach too. Surround yourself with people that make you better in all walks of life. @coachkelskegts ・・・ Earlier this year we did a photo shoot showcasing our gym for a book about unique strength gyms around the country. I believe I posted a behind the scenes video on @gametimestrength, but never a picture and completely forgot about it until today. This picture really captures my heart surgery scar, an experience I'm extremely proud of and has forever changed the way I think, train, problem solve and persevere. It reminds me of the people, friends, and clients in my life that came together to help me in my time of need. It reminds me of the bond my wife and I share and the sacrifices she made giving up her career and moving across the country to become my full time caregiver for 3+ months. It reminds me of how lucky I am to have parents willing and able to fly across the country to be there for their son's surgery. I'm just about a year and a half out of surgery now, but this scar is a constant reminder that I'm living on borrowed time and I need to make the most of every second I've been given back. Thank you all for your support, love, care, and thoughts. @gametimestrength #gts #strength #heartsurgeryrecovery #heartsurgerysurvivor
Therapy dog Thursdays.
Nailed it. Happy Friday friends!
Let's just make this @spacecamm day over at @nevpt and @nevadahoops #sleeper? #onlyifyouveactuallybeenasleep
Good luck to our boy @spacecamm today. Gonna miss watching you play in the silver and blue but go get em bud! #nbadraft2017 @nevpt
