This officially serves as my 400th post. Honestly, I've been minor stressing about what exactly to post for my 400th b/c I have mixed emotions about social media. Over the years, my feed has been filled less with movement people and more with music and comedians.
I decided to go with an homage to movement & some tools I like to use to move, along with throwing some shout-outs to some people that are doing good work.
So here it is, some of my movement routine from yesterday. My @stickmobility sticks are new & boy are they fun and great to create simultaneous system wide compression & tension.They allow for loading of movement in a unique way, similar but different than about my favorite tool, the @Viprpro.
The second video shows some of my "active recovery" type exercises, which I like to use to drive more input into afferent systems, including vestibular and vision systems. I reduced input to the proprioceptive systems by using the unstable @reactive_training Coretex, while focusing on the vestibulo-ocular reflex (with scapular isometric holds) & cervical remapping using my @motionguidance
Remember, on stable surfaces, 70% of sensory information into the brain comes from proprioception, 20% vestibular and 10% from the eyes, but on unstable surfaces, 70% is vestibular, 20% is vision and 10% is proprioception.
What does that mean? It means that to drive more vestibulo-ocular reflexes & less proprioception, do it on an unstable surface! (SIDE NOTE: this is the reason performing rehab for ankle sprains on a Airex pad isnt a primary strategy.Sprains result in decreased proprioception in the joint. Therefore, driving proprioception is paramount & stable surfaces drive more of that system vs. unstable)
I also want to give a shout out to those that have influenced me. Thank you.
I'll continue to try and post stuff I think is relevant that can help other movement professionals in a manner that feels authentic to me. Authentic is important cause there are too many, IMO, that talk loud and say nothing.
