That’s the way we’ve always done it

๐Ÿ”ฅ Very wise words ๐Ÿ”ฅโฃ from the very wiseย @shift_movementscience, said in relation to gymnastics ๐Ÿ™Œ. โฃ
However, I feel that it translates just as strongly to pole as well as to chiropractic ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš•๏ธ, rehab/prehab, manual therapies and gym practices ๐Ÿ‹๏ธ (as well as a whole range of other things tbh).โฃ


Just because that is the way things have always been done, doesnโ€™t mean it is the best way ๐Ÿคฏ.
It doesnโ€™t mean it is based on evidence or that it has been properly reevaluated throughout time and experience โŒ. โฃ


๐Ÿ‘ Just because it is the way your instructor taught you, doesnโ€™t necessarily mean it is the way you should teach your students! ๐Ÿ‘ โฃ
Donโ€™t get me wrong, some of the things that have always been done are amazing ๐Ÿ˜. But some are outdated.โฃ

If you donโ€™t understand something, question it! ๐Ÿง  โฃ
If it doesnโ€™t seem right, research it. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŽ“โฃ
Ask questions! โ‰๏ธโฃ
Seek the knowledge that you need to be great at your craft. โœ…โฃ

โ€œIt doesnโ€™t look like a split, so it wonโ€™t help my splitโ€ – FALSE

I often see this in classes, and I can see it in my instagram engagement too. Pole dancers/flexibility students donโ€™t like things that donโ€™t look like pole and they feel the same way about the splits ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ. โฃ

Quality over Quantity - The Chiro Co

Quality over Quantity – reps, (p)rehab and conditioning.

I donโ€™t usually like giving a set amount of reps and/or sets of an exercise to do ๐Ÿ˜ฑ. 

I do it with my instagram posts because I know that is what people need, and if they are not injured it isnโ€™t hugely problematic. 

HOWEVER 

I always say to my chiro, (p)rehab and flexibility patients, and it is relevant to my followers too, quality ๐Ÿ‘ over ๐Ÿ‘ quantity ๐Ÿ‘. 

I donโ€™t care if you do 60 reps of your rehab exercise, if you donโ€™t do it properly! 

Rehab particularly, but also conditioning, is about using specific muscles to make specific joints perform specific actions. If you arenโ€™t being specific, you likely arenโ€™t achieving the full benefit ๐Ÿคฏ. 

There is also the added factor of neuromuscular patterning ๐Ÿง  .. Sounds nerdy I know, but I will explain it, and its implications to nice lines etc in pole, next time ๐Ÿ™ƒ. 

So if you do some of the exercises I post, aim for the target reps of course ๐Ÿ™Œ, but if you canโ€™t do that many at a high quality – engaging the right muscles, then simply donโ€™t do that many โ˜บ๏ธ.

Is that a Stretch, or is it Nerve Tension?

IMG_6533.jpg

Is that a stretch youโ€™re feeling, or is it ๐ง๐ž๐ซ๐ฏ๐ž ๐ญ๐ž๐ง๐ฌ๐ข๐จ๐ง ๐Ÿ’ฅ? Part 2. (for part one check instagram for the video)

โฃ

1๏ธโƒฃ Lay on your back with your pelvic floor + core engaged, with a neutral spine and neck. Bring one leg towards your face with a pointed toe until you feel a stretch in your hamstring.โฃ

2๏ธโƒฃFlex your foot. Do you feel a change in sensation, or an increase in your โ€œstretchโ€?โฃ

3๏ธโƒฃKeeping your foot flexed, bring the leg back down to the ground so you are laying on your back (change nothing except the angle at your hips). Does the added or increased sensation/โ€œstretchโ€ from flexing the foot go away?โฃ

If you said yes to the above two questions, then the added โ€œstretchโ€ you are feeling when you flex your foot is actually nerve tension ๐Ÿ˜ฑโŒ. โฃ

Go back and look at the last video and read the caption for more info. โฃ

Follow for nerve glide videos to come to help with this issue ๐Ÿ‘. โฃ

If you have pain or injury, get it checked by a professional ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€โš•๏ธ. โฃ

This is just the basics of nerve tension! So if your flexibility is not improving no matter what you try, or you arenโ€™t seeing the progress you would expect, hit me up for an appointment. I work late nights and weekend so no excuses! ๐Ÿ˜โฃ
