Foot series pt.6- The BIG toe
Yes the big toe is so important that it gets its own episode 📺
Our toes spend so much time crammed in 👞👠 that over time it can 🔒 up joints in the foot due to lack of movement variance
The most important motion in the big toe is extension (toe ⬆️ towards the ceiling). The ideal motion for big toe extension is 50-90 degrees 📐. This is because normal walking requires approximately 45 degrees 📐
Having more motion than required allows the tissues to not be put in a maximal tension position ↔️. Constantly forcing to max tension would stress the tissue integrity as it goes beyond its abilities
👀 at the image above, forcing the toe to end range also stretches↔️ the plantar fascia. This connects up the calf and so forth. Over tensioning can create stress up the chain that way
Lack of toe extension alters normal gait. It forces the leg to be pushed ⬆️. This is followed by a hip hike and increased stress on the low back ⚡️⚡️
The other issue is the foot having to turn out to accommodate for this lack of motion. This creates torque in the knee and stretching ↔️forces on the outer knee (go back to my last post to get a visual example of this). With the thigh rotated inward it can also make the glutes 🍑as they are in a stretched position and inefficient
Tag someone whose big toe is 🔒 and stiff, their body may be thankful for this info. Share the wealth 🙏

This picture perfectly sums up my life. I’m sitting on the floor after leg day #80dayobsession wondering how long I can get away with sitting here and still be able to get up and walk upstairs for bed 😅
There are toys and weights all over the plays, Clay’s “potty” is on full display, I haven’t vacuumed yet, and behind me on the couch are my binder and library books for an insane paper I have due on Thursday.
It’s also report card time 😮 I wanted to skip tonight’s workout in the worst way, but I knew I would feel so much better if I pushed play.
Trust me, you can do this. You can make exercise fit into your busy schedule. You won’t regret it. Your laundry and vacuum can wait. 😘

ON THE ART OF HEALING | @sarahdalesandro and I had such a great convo live yesterday on this topic. Despite technical difficulties the flow was tangible, including the participation from so many of you.🌺🙌🏼 I wanted to share my own art healing moment today as well. I’ve had tremendous back pain right in the center of my mid back for the past few days. It is more of an intense soreness, a deep primal ache which I know has been a direct result of some releasing I’ve been doing. So wound like, I can think of the metaphors to describe it- feeling like no one had my back, feeling stabbed in the back, looking over my shoulder etc....I can’t put into words how tender this spot tender that the night before I was using a pressure point massager on it and just touching it triggered my body into starting to pass out. Talk about deep rooted! I continued with my self care routine the next day and deep inside I knew I just had to paint today. It was non-negotiable. I started with some funky thoughts and resistance but stayed determined🎨After a lengthy painting session I wasn’t really surprised when I noticed the relenting ache had subsided. Relieved yes. Grateful oh yes. Surprised no because that’s how powerful this creativity thing is. It is the essence of healing. 🌸🌾📿 it is the essence of our being, that formless place where healing happens. Creativity is the essence of life itself.🌞🌼🌹 .

Before my mum came back she was getting so frustrated, feeling sad because she wasn't active. She hadn't used her legs since the accident.

This was her first physio session with Andy from @proformphysio. This guy is a genius - setting that great rapport with my mum, teaching her how to move correctly, and giving her that motivation. Every chance she gets she just walks!

My mum is now so determined to get better and bake Andy some pandesal!

There is a certain energy that fills the gym when everyone is working past physical ability and the mental toughness of the mind takes over. Thank you to my professor's and my teammates for tonight's training.

I can’t have sugar, but thank goodness I have my recovery drink!
It has a dual purpose for me:
It makes me not be as sore the next day.

Always look for the positives!!! #staypositive #journeytofit #soreness #recover #fitmom #momboss #goals

Weeble wooble going on now and during the workout. My legs might be my strongest asset, but they are weak at the moment. But only to get stronger with each day I push through these workouts... that I am loving 💜#day5 #shakeology #recover #performanceline #orangeflavor #legs #legday #bootyfordays #bootyworkout #createthechange #stronger

Hey everyone, how are you doing? I think this is one of the most difficult things majority of society faces today. Everyone try's to be like everyone else, afraid of being judged or hated. Everyone has a strong opinion these days, and of course this is causing a rise in anxiety that people are facing. Be YOURSELF, don't worry about what other people think. If what you are doing is good and not harming anyone or anything, and YOU enjoy it, don't EVER let anyone stop you from doing whatever you love. Wear what you want, do what you want, go where you want, eat what you want. If you are not trying to bring you down, then don't ever let anyone prevent you from doing what makes YOU happy. I've been doing this for the past 4 years. I listen to peoples opinions, BUT if it's something negative and someone is trying to bring me down, I don't even bother processing it because I know I didn't do anything wrong to deserve the hatred. And I know you guys don't either. You deserve to be happy and live in a life without fear. Keep strong and healthy, I believe in you all!!! ❤❤💫💫

Neck tight? Shoulders tense? Head aches? Did you know that floatation can tame tension headaches? A recent study confirms that float therapy is a “long-lasting and versatile treatment” for chronic tension headaches. Book today. Relief is just a float away… 📸 @kahlariswimwear
