Its humpday 🍑!! Todays Video is on the Leg Press💃🏽 . What not to do during this exercise ❌ . 1️⃣Sitting in posterior pelvic tilt❌ 2️⃣Knees locked out❌ 3️⃣Using the leg press in this tilt will add the load to the lower back and lead to back pain❌ . Things to do during this exercise✅ . 1️⃣Pelvis Neutral✅ 2️⃣Knees reframe from locking out✅ 3️⃣These steps will reduce the risk of lower back pain while leg pressing✅ . Benefits of the Leg Press 🤷🏽♂️ . Assuming that you are well-suited for squatting, the leg press can act as a spark for squat strength. This makes sense because it is basically the same movement as the squat; only it’s performed in a different direction and with a different torso angle.However, since it doesn’t require as much balance or stabilization as squats, it is easier to increase the load and introduce a more stress to the leg muscles. . The leg press is a sufficient alternative if you have physical limitations (e.g. poor body structure, terrible hip flexibility, back issues) that prevent you from using proper squat form. . The leg press exercise enables you to focus on your major leg muscles. It doesn’t require you to use your stabilizer muscles since its done on a machine. This allows you to add more weight faster. And according to the principle of progressive overload, the end result is increased muscle mass. . Tag a friend that may need some help with their Leg Press ✅🙋🏽♂️ Thanks for watching guys!!

There are so many sentences in Breaking Your Limits by @painacademy that made me stop. Think. Re-read. Think. And sigh. Because he has this way of expressing his thoughts and emotions. Many of you, who read every one of his posts know what I’m talking about. Every time I came across one of these gems, I would stop reading the book and write it down to ponder about later. This is one of them. This week, I am trying to meet my pain on the level it is being created, not on the level it is reacting. It’s the only way I can truly feel the pain. Feel all of it ... so that I can let it all go. It hasn’t been easy. But I’m finally there. I feel it deep in my soul. I am so glad I had this gem written down to pull out this week. I knew I would need it one day. @painacademy. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
AT for Dance & Movement // Performers say the Alexander Technique is "the technique under all techniques," because it is a process of embodied thinking, sensing and acting. Through studying the Technique, dancers can move with greater ease, poise and accomplishment, regardless of the movement style.⠀ ⠀ The Technique involves three pivotal arms of training coordination: the "Means-Whereby," "Inhibition" and "Direction."⠀ .⠀ The Means-Whereby help dancers pay attention to their whole Self as they are moving. By paying attention to how you are moving as you move, process takes precedence over product. Movement becomes freer when dancers focus on sensing the changing relationships of the moving body, not just on positions or steps.⠀ .⠀ Inhibition is Alexander’s term for a process that facilitates effortless, natural movement. By using inhibition, dancers learn to recognize habitual, unembodied movements and to choose not to do them. Habitual tensions leave one with a paucity of body relationships and movement options. Using Inhibition, a dancer can pay attention to the moving Self without interfering with the inherent laws of coordination. Inhibition further affords the dancer a means of refreshing their kinaesthetic sense which may have been diminished from the fatigue of hours of rehearsal.⠀ .⠀ Direction is that final phase that enables the dancer to be fully, outwardly expressive. Dancers know direction intimately by their body architecture, their deep kinaesthetic appreciation of internal directions of movement and their orientation and connection to space. If the Means-Whereby awakens a kinaesthetic impulse, and Inhibition further primes it for action - Direction gives it somewhere to go.⠀ .⠀ Come try out the Technique for yourself at Shoonya. Programmes starting this Sunday, DM us for enquiries and regn.⠀ .⠀ #awareness#painrelief#posture#performance#evolutionofmovement#workshop#somatics#understandingthebody#evolution
Нестабильность колена. . . При выполнении упражнения ("выпады") у многих колени направлены наружу, либо внутрь. Чтобы этого избежать нам нужна резинка. Резиной мы ограничиваем смещение колена (внутрь/наружу). Положение резины в ту сторону, в которую колено смещается. То есть, если при выполнении упражнения "выпады" колено уходит наружу (как показано на видео), то и натяжение резинки должно быть в эту сторону. Резина расположена выше коленного сустава не просто так, если опустить её ниже, то в коленном суставе будет микро смещение. Естественно, при выполнении упражнения это ни к чему хорошему не приведёт. Так что распологаем резинку выше коленного сустава. Упражнение старайтесь делать правильно: с прямой спиной (не заваливаться в бок) медленно и плавно. 3 подхода по 15 раз. #gym#gymnastic#fitness#training#hips#mobility#osteopatic#posture
