L5 – S1 ELDOA

Stuck at the Airport ✈️ Comment and give me ideas on what to do👇👇 – Flight was supposed to leave at 6:00am back to Orlando but now I won't get back until 5:30am tomorrow morning😩 Since I'm stuck, here's a little review for people needing some low back relief. I will be doing this a lot tomorrow morning – L5-S1 Spinal Decompression Stretch [ELDOA] – ☝️ELDOAs are postural self-normalizing techniques designed for widening the space within a chosen articulation! This is accomplished by creating fascial tension to fix the vertebra below and contraction in extreme range to normalize the vertebra above the targeted disc – Here's how to perform the ELDOA for L5-S1! – 1️⃣ Start by bringing your SITS bones (butt bones) onto the wall! 2️⃣ Feet will be hips width apart and rotate your legs, so feet are pointing inwards! 3️⃣ Spread the toes and flex your foot down (so feet will be point in and down) 4️⃣ Tuck your chin and without lifting your head look between your thighs! 🕷I call this next part "Do the Spiderman!" 5️⃣ One arm at a time you're going to push your palms towards the ceiling! 6️⃣ Now, one arm at a time bring your arms overhead, so your biceps are by your ear (maintaining those spiderman fingers) – Nice work getting into this position BUT now we need to actively be pushing our body parts in certain directions! Just read below to see where the line of drive is coming from! 💥 Heels are going ⬆️ 💥 Tailbone towards the wall 💥 Low back down to the floor ⬇️ 💥 Hands back behind you – 🚨 Now hold this position for 1 minute! If you can't, don't worry we can always work our way up to a minute! – #joetherapy #piriformis #sciatica – #stretch #yoga #calisthenics #flexibility #mobility #yogachallenge #rehab #prehab #yogaeverydamnday #yogi #romwod #flexible #yogapose #fitness #fitfam #fitspo #movementculture #homegym #getinspired #personaltraining #onlinetrainer #legpain #runnersworld #pigeonpose #crossfit #runnerspace #runhappy

Wolf’s Law

Everybody, I'd like you to meet Wolff's law- Wolff's law, I'd like you to meet everybody. 👋🏻👋🏻👋🏻 ••• 🐺Wolff's law: Bone in a healthy person will adapt to the loads under which it is placed. ••• I love this law. I wanna scream it from the top of a mountain. But I don't have a mountain, I just have an Instragram platform with a moderate amount of followers (if you know that reference then we're besties) ••• This concept helps LITERALLY explain so much, and give so much meaning to anatomy, as we will see when we start talking nerdy next week. However, I wanted to introduce this concept today, not only because it will be referenced a ton in the upcoming posts, but also to show you how this concept ties deeply to my most important learning strategy. Stay tuned when I drop concept 1️⃣ later or tomorrow. ••• In the meantime…I challenge you to start thinking about why this concept ties into improving learning strategies.
