themvmtmaestro Friends don't let friends hit a snatch without protection. Get yourself some @goattape and wrap it up. #maestrofied -------------------------------------------

themvmtmaestro Are your tight shoulders limiting your back squat? In order to execute a proper high bar back squat you need to have sufficient external rotation (ER) of the shoulders. Any limitations in shoulder ER will restrict thoracic spine extension, forcing you to bend forward more at the waist when squatting, and creating an immature squat pattern.
Here's one of my favorite mobilizations for improving shoulder external rotation. When performing this be sure to prevent any compensations at the torso, such as leaning to the side or excessively arching your back. This mobilization is helpful for all overhead activities, front rack positioning, back squat form, and healthy shoulder mechanics in general.

Check out my YouTube page (The Movement Maestro) for the full video.

As always, 2-3 minutes of work per side, immediately followed by some active motion through the new range to grease that groove and help make that new range stick. #maestrofied -------------------------------------------

themvmtmaestro Check out a piece I recently wrote for WODMedic about why you should have a trusted movement professional in your corner. The full article can be found in the blog section at www.WODMedic.com. Another good one comin at ya. #maestrofied -------------------------------------------

  •   themvmtmaestro @Chris_Kwait killing it. 3d
  •   natesaliem9 What is the purpose of all that swinging and use of momentum?? 3d
  •   kzappa Hell yeah Chris!! 3d
  •   themvmtmaestro @natesaliem9 - kipping is used to allow for the transfer of force from the hips to the upper body. While we always encourage an athlete to first be able to perform a movement strict, aka without any kipping/compensation, the value of kipping is understood when a movement like that is used for metabolic conditioning, not for strength development. To develop strength and technique we go strict. As part of a WOD or for conditioning, we employ kipping, so that we can do more reps and elicit a metabolic stimulus. Make sense? 3d
  •   themvmtmaestro @natesaliem9 also note that although @Chris_kwiat is kipping, he's extremely controlled and not simply swinging around haphazardly. 3d
  •   natesaliem9 For sure. I always see them and never knew if it was a certain type 3d

ralphreubenmorales Mobilization work to fight child sexual exploitation.

Met yesterday with the frontliners of Barangay Ibayong Tipas in Taguig. After passing their anti-trafficking ordinance, they are now focusing on its implementation.

Within May, Taguig City's police forces, social welfare office and prosecutors will join the 28 barangays to lay down plans for the roadmap addressing #HumanTrafficking & #ChildSexualExploitation.

qbancandela Been working on hip mobility! Notice how on the top video he could hardly raise his right leg. Pain faces were visible on both the left leg lift & right leg lift on the top video. On the bottom video you can see how much smoother & open his hips are. No pain faces were visible on the second video. I worked on his Psoas, Iliacus, hip flexors as well as his anterior superior Iliac spine which he strained. Still a work in progress but making him mobile & making GAINS! #sciencebitch #doyouevenlift #doyouevenscience #mobilization #mobility #anatomy #pelvicfault #nextlevel #test #retest #betterthanstrecthing #progress #preventative #legday 4d

themvmtmaestro Got wrist pain in that front rack position? Perhaps when you do push-ups you're feeling it in your wrists instead of your chest and tri's? Here's a nice banded mobilization technique for the wrist that is guaranteed to improve motion and decrease pain.

This technique aims to mobilize the carpal bones, 8 small bones that are grouped into two rows, located at the base of the hand. If these guys aren't moving well, you'll never enjoy any movements that involve loading your wrists. For this technique I prefer a smaller @perform_better superband, generally no more than an inch in width. Check out my YouTube page for the full video.

As always, 2-3 minutes of work per side, immediately followed by some active motion through the new range to grease that groove and help make that new range stick. #maestrofied -------------------------------------------

alltrueishim #TherapeuticTalkThursday #EverydayIsMyWorkday - Working on restoring full range of motion on one of my patients recovering from post-operative AC joint repair. On the left, I'm providing a mobilization as he lifts his arm off the stool to increase his forward flexion in the scapular plane. This is a form of an #MWM (mobilization with movement). I also instructed the patient to perform an isometric downward push against the stool in between each MWM. On the right, We're doing a different MWM as he's actively pushing the rolling stool up and down in the frontal plane with a mobilization from me to restore full external rotation. Just being creative. Stools can be used for more than sitting. #Mobilization #Mobility #Shoulder #AC #Rehab #PhysicalTherapy #Physiotherapy #Fisioterapia #Stool #MobilizationWithMovement #Mulligan #ROM #RangeOfMotion #Function #Flexion #ExternalRotation 5d

themvmtmaestro Finally able to put some weight on the bar. Haven't been able to squat like that in months because of knee problems. Hit 115# here, caught it high, rode it down, and it actually felt pretty light. By no means saying my form is perfect, but medball (or rock) cleans have really made all the difference in terms of getting my technique together. Regarding the knees, guess all that physical therapy stuff that I preach really does work. #maestrofied
