What's the point of hands if not to stand on them? Shout out to @cartertwitty and @brianmovement for rocking tonight's workshop. #joblove #lululemon #Dallas #northparkcenter #yoga #thesweatlife

brianmovement REST: yes, this is "rest day" for me, but rest doesn't mean no movement. It was a day to test my climbing and a day to kick back with my wife, son and good friend @cartertwitty. Cheers to more movement! 5d

brianmovement INTEGRATION: when strength and mobility are being pushed to their new range the combos and possibilities become limitless. Still working on the behind the leg pistol, still need a little room but I'll just keep putting one foot in front of the other. 6d

brianmovement As I move deeper in my personal practice the need for greater levels of mobility are apparent. It's something that I have NEVER focused on and just like a yard that's left untouched the weeds were way overgrown, so much so that I wasn't aware of how much I was limited. Now I'm playing catch up and I've come to the theory that a mobile first foundation is far better than a strength first foundation. Too much strength without proper mobility can quickly lead to trouble leaving you injured and broken. 7d

brianmovement After nights of light acrobatics I most definitely feel areas of my body "awaken" that were just along for the ride previously. Entering gymnastics as an adult has been very humbling but rewarding as well and my overall movement continues to improve with each passing day. Don't let opportunity for new experiences pass you by, use what you've got while you've got it and feel what it's like to move in completely new ways. 1w
  •   brianmovement @maximilianrosenfeld hope you can join us sometime soon. 1w
  •   prevaildallas Very nice! We are currently working on some of the same things upstairs at Summit, which I see you have been. Maybe we will run into each other and you can lend some of your strategies, @brianmovement! Keep up the progress brother 1w
  •   dr_edwin80 I here Ya man. When I was young I did a lot of freak dancing, capoeira and some basic tumbling and now trying to get back into it as a 34 yr old... Humbling is definitely the term, but also exciting when you experience small progress. Cheers buddy! 1w
  •   dr_edwin80 Not freak lol, break dancing. Dang autocorrect. Well may have been freak dancing a bit too. Haha 1w
  •   brianmovement @prevaildallas absolutely, would love to. 1w
  •   brianmovement @dr_edwin80 haha, freak, break it's varied movement either way! Our stories are similar (now 34 as well) but what fun it is to be a kid again 1w
  •   kategalliett BUDDY!!!! 1w

brianmovement My leading dogma "everything gets better with age, including movement". I'm definitely no gymnast but I was absolutely pumped when I landed my second attempt at an"sole circle dismount". It turns out gymnastics is for adults too. 1w

brianmovement Though I don't really post much on nutrition anymore it's a topic I'm still very passionate about. Unfortunately it's an area that many are still confused on because they have information coming at them from all angles suggesting they add this or take away that, with something new or changing everyday. While I understand we are all slightly unique on a biochemical level indicating we need different things in varying amounts there is one thing that is evident, WE ARE ALL HUMAN and the "template" is still the same. In order for humans to function optimally we have some basic nutrient requirements that must be met. And in my years of nutritional study and work with clients I've found that most do best with a simple approach of adopting the mindset of the "meat eating vegetarian". A play on words but what it means is that by consuming larger amounts of colorful veggies followed by quality meats and fats (preferably grass fed, organic and/or local) with a sprinkle of fermented foods you've really got a solid foundation to then make it your own. In these foods nearly all of our essential nutrients are found and really there is no need for fillers (the most common of food categories) on a consistent basis. This is the "template" that can then be adjusted according to your needs. Do you move? You may need more. Sit at a desk all day? Slightly less. Yes it can be this basic as a starting point. Explore, educate and refine and you will create a diet you can truly call your own that allows you to express your full potential. 1w

brianmovement Forward roll practice marches on. Can't let the ice and cold stop my ring routine so I decided to make use of some beams we have in the kitchen. Still need to limit the "drop" at the end of the roll but better is better. Never stop moving. 1w

brianmovement Stillness isn't always what it seems, static is never static. Strength, power and other movement quantities are often at their greatest when attempting to resist movement because it is not truly possible, but that will never stop me from trying. *photo cred @ishootmovement 2w

brianmovement EXPERIMENTATION: clearly I'm no capoeira expert but it doesn't keep me from exploring new movement. With programming of everything we often march through our day with little to no play forgetting that novelty breeds new life and the change we are after. @cartertwitty @deandreyoga 2w

brianmovement OPEN UP: having a movement practice has opened up not only my shoulders but also my mind. It's allowed me to learn how to take chances, conquer fears and be a better human being overall. As I continue to explore and open new doors the possibilities are endless and possibility is what living is all about. 2w

brianmovement I haven't visited this movement in a couple months but it's a testament to what focusing on the basics can do to enhance all movements. Lay the foundation and it will come. Fun movement play session with @cartertwitty and @deandreyoga 2w

brianmovement The ring shoulder stand isn't the most sexy of movements but is a must for complete ring work and for passing through the to ring handstand. It's also crucial for getting used to being upside down while 7+ feet in the air. 2w

brianmovement Celebrating the day with endless possibilities. The more consistent I become the more progress that is made. Huge PR finally opening up to the straddle. 3w

brianmovement Handstand Look-Through. The head slowly drops to look behind as you push up through the shoulders. These require some serious balance and focus but for some reason having TOOL on in the background always helps. 3w
  •   grrldoc Do you find it easier to do handstands with head looking toward the ground? I'm still in the info gathering, learning stage :) 3w
  •   brianmovement @grrldoc yes, slightly toward the fingertips is easiest. The look through is much more advanced as the tendency is for spine to follow the head calling for more balance and control, but it also gives the straightest line. Best was to practice is chest facing wall toes pointed and together. Good luck!! 3w
  •   random_lowlife Awesome page, really enjoying your progress!, great variety & discipline in regards to form and quality > quantity, very envious my friend, thanks for sharing ! 1w

brianmovement REPETITION : one thing I've learned throughout the years with any movement practice I've embarked on is that repetition counts. But in a world where we want things now it's one of the hardest ideas to grasp, you've got to put in the time to get the result no matter what the endeavor. Once someone is successful at something all most see is the outer shell, never the reps. Trust me when I say they were done. 3w

brianmovement The beauty of bodyweight training is that it can be done anywhere. Soaking up free vitamin D and working on the planche hold. 4w
