Reposted from @naudiaguilar (@get_regrann) - When I train, I rarely focus on anything I can do well already. What's something I don't do well? Running. Well, there's not really anything I do well as it relates to movement. Of the things I do least well, running is definitely it. That said, I'm hitting the goal of running effortlessly, without joint discomfort or fear of injury. . . A while a go, I cemented the statement that virtually all human mechanics are the byproduct of gait. That the root of functional movement for humans has to go back to the functions we do most. About 7 years pass and now the results are proving my assertions correct on all sorts of people. . . While people obsessed and continue to obsess over squats, I focus on what really matters. Do the same in the way I do it and watch how things change in your life. It's pretty wild. The wisest choice you can make in training is to orient yourself around the functions you do most. Squats aren't even close to being one of those functions. . .

Reposted from @chris_everett11 (@get_regrann) - Inspiration in solving problems!! Posted @withrepost • @fp.petr.mach It is like when Neil Armstrong step on the Moon. It ws huge step and the rest you know... This is breaking boundaries on personal level. I have already said that, but I say it again, it is amazing what mind set @aleja_carreno has. From the short walk with no support couple weeks ago she can climb the stairs. Huge effort but she made it!!! We broke the boundaries that she can't do it. Mind is a powerful tool. Alejandra has Functional Neurological Disorders that affects whole body on all levels. First of all there has to be an acceptance of your state of helth. You have to admit it. Only then you move can forward. You cannot move forward when you fight against yourself. It takes you the stregth away. So so proud of you @aleja_carreno. #functionalpatterns #fpbournemouth #fppetrmach #Bournemouth #puregymbournemouth #realtraining #humantraining #rehabilitation #fnd #functionalneurologicaldisorder #stroke #walkagain #nevergiveup #innerstrength - #regrann

Planks the functional patterns way. Here we are trying to help @scottcooper11 run better. Having knee problems so correcting his core to help better connect that to his slings when he runs. We also done a couple more exercises prior to this Not easy #functionalpatterns #southshields #trainpainfree #newcastle #sunderland #tyneandwear

Reposted from @naudiaguilar - The field of athletics is filled with brown nosers who act as a cog in a broken wheel. All these years, trainers have been using sloppy MFR and corrective exercises to help these athletes maintain. Turns out the opposite is happening. . . Athletes are going continue to degenerate when trainers keeps using passive mobility drills for injury recovery and prevention. That shit is eventually not going to work. In fact these techniques are precisely what increase the likelihood of injury for these athletes. Shutting off fascia and muscle creates less support on a body, not more. Wanna know what's crazy? All these trainers know this. . . Why don't they change? Because they enjoy the notariety. It's an absolute bonehead move by the management of these NBA teams to keep these liabilities. In the next 10 years, a franchise in the NBA will knock on my door. When they do, they not only will not have an injury to report, they will win world championships. . . When athletes aren't sidelined due to injury, they get to spend more time on the court honing their skills. Nevermind that, when the training actually rewires motor patterns in ways that actually duplicate what they do on the court, they get better on the court. Literal upgrades through @functionalpatterns. . . For the time being, athletic coaches just tell their athletes that they already know what we know. Eventually someone is gonna ask why FP gets results and they just say they know. Eventually, these coaches are going to get replaced. . . Political systems only maintain themselves so long as incompetence is permeated throughout society. Eventually, those who actually know will push the old bullshit aside to establish a new heirarchy. There is clear bullshit going on in athletics right now. Who pays the price? The owners of the franchises. Literally. They don't get the most out of their investments because they have liabilities in places where they are supposed to have assets. . . Wise up NBA. #functionalpatterns #biomechanicsculture #leveragingmotion #tuneintotheboring #relevanthumanoptimization #makehumansfunctionalagain #tuneintotheboredom - #regrann

Holy shit. Some results by @naudiaguilar Hoping I can showcase my own running results after I get back from Hawaii Reposted from @fp_nate - Posted @withrepost • @naudiaguilar @marikoko11 was already a great athlete before I worked with her. When she ran on her before video, I wondered whether or not I would be able override her general preference in movement orientation. An issue with athletes is that they are great with flight or fight scenarios, but it can be hard to reroute that unconscious mechanisms. Time passes and I have most certainly proved to myself that I can make these kinds of changes to the lower brain. It took an amazing and patient student in Mariko to pull this off. . . On the left video, I had to spend a few weeks undoing the damage on her lumbar that was induced by the max sprint tests. I wouldn't have thought it would have induced so much pain, but it did. From that point onward, a slew of ego checks in the 100s came my way trying to figure her out. In my past I worked with athletes who turned hyperflaccid. I failed miserably and set out to not have this shit happen again. . . Many mental breakdowns later, and here we are. Sorry about not getting both with the same attire. Drew a blank that day on the session. That said, the changes here are pretty substantial. She increased her max speed by 1.7 MPH. She also walks in and out of the gym doing sprint tests all the time without crazy residual pains. The funny thing is that we are still just getting started. There is so much more room for improvements. . . Huge thanks again to Mariko for the trust through this process. A flippin meatgrinder it has been, but it is great to see this kind of stuff come together. #functionalpatterns #biomechanicsculture #leveragingmotion #tuneintotheboring #relevanthumanoptimization #makehumansfunctionalagain #yoga #posture #rehab #prehab #functionaltraining #tuneintotheboredom - #regrann

THE LONGITUDINAL LIGAMENT

A long

Reposted from @fp_paul - #repost@functionalpatterns • • • • • • THE LONGITUDINAL LIGAMENT A long time ago, I started to recognize certain dynamics in human spines when they are in motion. Particularly the motions of the spine during gait. I am close to figuring out dynamic spinal types, but for right now I will discuss a particular point of concern when it comes to spine health. That point being the dehydration of the longitudinal ligament. . . The longitudinal ligament is the structure that holds the spine together. It attaches to the entire length of the anterior spine. It is supposed to prevent things like dysfunctional hyperextension. Unfortunately, it gets dehydrated because peoples muscles have lost the capacity to function in a way that doesn't overly include the LL. . . Think about it like this... If your muscles don't do the work to stop your motions, your ligaments do the work. The ligaments become structurally reinforced to the point they become a calcium deposit, consequently leaving places with a lack of range of motion, or a hyperflaccid range of motion. . . In this case, the LL through longitudinal compression, influences the position of the spine to not move in certain segements. Ever think about doing a posterior pelvic tilt (coupled with lumbar flexion)and not having every vertebral body move in it? Probably not. No matter how much you think you move your spine, you LL in some way restricts motion on segments. It's because FP addresses this that we get the best results in the business. This requires tensile strength and control that is unknown outside of FP circles. . . Btw, YOGA calcifies this ligament maybe better than any other practice out there. . #functionalpatterns #biomechanicsculture #functionalculture #leveragingmotion #tuneintotheboring #relevanthumanoptimization #makehumansfunctionalagain - #regrann

Reposted from @functionalpatterns - CERTIFIED FP Human Biomechanics Specialist @fp.brandon showcasing some spinal decompression gains with our patented @fpinnovations RevG trainer! Our people at @fptexas always making gains! Client came in with left QL pain. We used the Reverse Gravity Trainer from @fpinnovations for 10 mins and were able diminish the pain through lumbar spinal decompression. • Left picture is her ucued active standing posture. • Right picture is her active squat using The Reverse Gravity Trainer. • Clients proprioception is programmed to posterior shift these vertebrae back excessively. • The Rev G taught her how to anteriorly shift these vertebrae into more of a neutral position through spinal decompression. • #fpalldayy #functionalpatterns @functionalpatterns @fptexas #makehumansfunctionalagain #spinaldecompression #spine #chiro #atxfitness #keepaustinfit #austin - #regrann - #regrann
