That’s the way we’ve always done it

🔥 Very wise words 🔥⁣ from the very wise @shift_movementscience, said in relation to gymnastics 🙌. ⁣
However, I feel that it translates just as strongly to pole as well as to chiropractic 👩‍⚕️, rehab/prehab, manual therapies and gym practices 🏋️ (as well as a whole range of other things tbh).⁣

Just because that is the way things have always been done, doesn’t mean it is the best way 🤯.
It doesn’t mean it is based on evidence or that it has been properly reevaluated throughout time and experience ❌. ⁣

👏 Just because it is the way your instructor taught you, doesn’t necessarily mean it is the way you should teach your students! 👏 ⁣
Don’t get me wrong, some of the things that have always been done are amazing 😍. But some are outdated.⁣

If you don’t understand something, question it! 🧠 ⁣
If it doesn’t seem right, research it. 👩‍🎓⁣
Ask questions! ⁉️⁣
Seek the knowledge that you need to be great at your craft. ✅⁣

Quality over Quantity - The Chiro Co

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

I don’t usually like giving a set amount of reps and/or sets of an exercise to do 😱. 

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


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

I don’t care if you do 60 reps of your rehab exercise, if you don’t do it properly! 

Rehab particularly, but also conditioning, is about using specific muscles to make specific joints perform specific actions. If you aren’t being specific, you likely aren’t achieving the full benefit 🤯. 

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

So if you do some of the exercises I post, aim for the target reps of course 🙌, but if you can’t do that many at a high quality – engaging the right muscles, then simply don’t do that many ☺️.
