brianmovement I knew these rowers were good for something.
Huge breakthrough today on the road to the one arm handstand, lateral flexion (aka side bending), I didn't realize just how much bend was required so was setting my aims too high. These rowers helped me get a little lower leading to more spinal movement and a change in my center of mass (COM). One day and one handstand closer to one arm.

brianmovement Front lever, closer, with quality. I remember practicing these a few years ago thinking I had it. I thought a proper FL meant whatever it took to get the legs out, even if the elbows were bent. Well, the locked elbow, straight arm game is a completely different beast. Every inch counts. 2d

brianmovement Many talk methods, few talk principles.

In the vault of lost movement principles is the concept of "quality" within a given movement or practice. While quality is nearly impossible to define we can all fairly accurately agree on what is and what is not. As it relates to movement in general control is just one aspect, but is very important for understanding where you are within any given skill or process. As it pertains to the pistol squat I see a ton of 'bouncy' attempts, sloppy form and clear lack of control. One quickly sees that quality and quantity are on different vectors... and that quality DICTATES quantity. As a leading principle within a movement practice this simple change can produce fruitful results.

brianmovement With action, consistency and a proper process dreams become reality. Less than two years ago this wasn't even thinkable, where to start? With the help of @portal.ido and coaches like @johnny.sapinoso it's slowly improving to the point of possibility. 1w

brianmovement More work on that which doesn't come naturally.

Mobility was of no interest to me until I realized how much I needed it. Now that I do, the real work begins!

When I'm mindful it will speak. The most beautiful thing about this practice is that it's never ending.

brianmovement Stillness of body, monkey mind

The 7 step horse stance will keep you humble both physically and mentally. Hold it long enough and it may feel as if you're not in this world. These days I'm working on bringing more mental stillness, akin to sitting meditation, as I've found it helps move past the points where I would otherwise stop. These are the good days.

brianmovement The way I prefer to start my day, taking my client through the @portal.ido squat routine. One of the better ways I've found to open up the hips and low back for... living and more movement. 2w

  •   dundeerunninglegend @brianmovement I just wanted to say many thanks for introducing this exercise to my daily stretching programme. I've suffered from hip, lower back and bulging disc issues for many years which has hampered my running - something that I absolutely love. I started doing this exercise a week ago and all the pain and discomfort has disappeared! I'm amazed, those around me are amazed, as is my physio!! Thank you! 1w
  •   brianmovement @dundeerunninglegend thanks for the note and glad it's helped you! It only gets better, keep it up! 1w

brianmovement Slowly finding the balance.
Humbled by the amount of time it takes to develop this skill, and even more so by those who make it look like child's play.
