RECIPROCAL INHIBITION-ADDUCTOR STRETCH
.
This hold-relax technique of Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation(PNF) fires the hip abductors, which are the antagonists to the adductors. Naturally, through your proprioceptors, this will relax the adductor muscle group and allow for more range of motion and stretch to the adductors.
.
This technique could prove useful if you are a gymnast looking to do the splits and you just need those few extra degrees of range of motion to accomplish your goal!🤸🏽‍♂️ .
.
Swiped left for:
.
Do it yourself PNF stretch!
.
Utilize this to immediately increase your adductor Range of Motion (ROM)! However, it should be noted that these ROM benefits won’t last all day and every day from one bout of PNF stretching. The ROM benefits stick around for around an hour or less from your first initial bout. To make sure these benefits stick around more in the long term you should be doing multiple PNF stretch sessions throughout the week to get the most benefits of muscular strength🏋️‍♀️, ROM, and athletic performance.⛹️‍♂️

JANDA SIT-UP
.
.
Inhibit the Hip Flexors neurologically by keeping the Hip Extensors firing throughout the flexion of the trunk.
.
Have a resistance band or partner pull from under the Calves -- to prevent the feet lifting off the ground the Hamstrings will engage, then squeeze the Glutes to lock this in.
.
.
Slowly curl up, while maintaining the above conditions. Be prepared for some very high levels of tension.
.
.
This is a pretty advanced exercise. There's often a learning period where it 'seems to get harder for a while first' as you learn to coordinate the different contractions. .
.
If you can't budge from the floor up...start at the top and work on a slow, controlled eccentric. . .

This #dailymusclemorsel will turn you heels over head.
Literally.
This upside down pullup is an unusual but highly effective movement for targeting the pulling muscles of the upper back and arms. In addition to triggering hypertrophy in the upper torso, your abs and spinal stabilizers get absolutely crushed as you’ll need to fire every muscle in your core to maintain balance and lock in your position.
To successfully complete this challenging movement there are several technique cues you’ll want to implement. 1. Hollow your core and brace your abs in a similar fashion as you would see a gymnast do. Think of doing a hollowed core leg raise position where you pull your abs in while firing your hip flexors. 2. When lifting your legs up and moving into the upside down position, rather than stopping once the legs are perpendicular to the floor, go slightly further (i.e. pull them slightly in back of you). Besides engaging your abdominal musculature even further this subtle but significant adjustment will maximize your body leverage through a more rigid and hollowed core position.
3. Dorsiflex your feet and ankles by pulling your toes towards your body and engaging your anterior tibialis. This stretches and lengthens the hamstrings to a greater degree which produces reciprocal inhibition. As a result, the opposing muscle groups namely the quads and hip flexors achieve greater activation...[use link in bio to learn the other cues and exercise pairings]

Rows are a staple for any powerlifter, bodybuilder, or athlete looking to improve their bench press and increase upper body strength. Unfortunately many lifters have a difficult time transferring their lat strength and rowing mechanics to the actual bench press. However, as any powerlifter can tell you one of the most important cues on the bench press is to essentially use your back to row the weight into position. This produces maximal co-contraction of agonist and antagonist muscle groups during the eccentric phase.
With this in mind it’s essential to transfer lat activation and proper rowing mechanics to the eccentric phase of the bench press. The more specifically we can customize a row to mimic the bench press, the better the transfer. With this in mind here are several variations of a rowing movement that I consider to be one of, if not the perfect rowing exercise to improve bench press technique and strength. I refer to it as the Reverse Inverted Row or Reverse Bench Press with bands as it provides the exact same bar path yet precise antagonistic activation patterns as the bench press. Also big shoutout to legendary world-famous strength coaches Josh Bryant @jailhousestrong and Alex Babin @alexbabin_ I highly recommend following them ASAP as they are some of the best in the business.

Your body is a deceiving machine. You THINK you need to work on something, while you might really NEED something the complete opposite. And by opposite, I mean it literally. Take this Baddha Konasana for example. You'd think you need to stretch and work your adductors and hip flexors, but what you really need is to engage the muscles that are there to do JUST THAT, your abductors and hip extensors. By trying to pull up the plate, something you can do by grabbing your feet, but this way you extend the spine a lot, you are engaging the muscles that go from your neck to your glutes, the whole group of spine extensors. By doing so, your brain shuts down their opposites muscles and allows the hips release, voila! Work on your strenght, flexibility will follow 😉
Tu cuerpo es una maquina engañosa. Vos CREES necesitar trabajar en algo, cuando en realidad NECESITAS enfocarte en algo completamente opuesto. Y lo digo literalmente. Baddha Konasana por ejemplo, normalmente dirias que tenes que estirar y abrir los aductores y flexores de cadera, pero lo que realmente necesitas es activar los musculos que están ahi para hacer exactamente eso, tus abductores y extensores de cadera. Tratando de levantar la pesa, algo que podes hacer agarrando los pies, pero de esta manera extendes la columna un monton, activas los músculos que van desde el cuello hasta los gluteos, el grupo completo de erectores de columna. De esta forma, tu cerebro apaga los musculos opuestos y permite que las caderas abran y liberen, voila! Trabaja en tu fuerza, la flexibilidad llega sola 😉

For powerful deadlifts, warm up well and focus on your back and shoulder engagement. 🏋️‍♀️💙
.
I did a TRX circuit before this to activate my core, legs and upper body... Here I am practicing a couple stretches, so my hamstrings and glutes will be ready to support the movement.
.
If you watch to the end of the video or the start of my last deadlift post, you can see the difference between rounding the back and keeping a more neutral spine. This is how to reduce stress on the spinal discs: pay attention to your hips, and lock down the shoulder blades so the weight is balanced across your body. Pull straight up and feel the core engage!
.
Try it and let me know how it goes... Or send me a video if you need a form check!
.
For any biomechanics students out there, my stretching is following the concept of reciprocal inhibition, giving opposing muscles a full range of motion to fire. Studies show that static stretching can actually reduce muscle power if performed before exercise, so that is why I am keeping my stretches short and more dynamic.

Muscle cramps are involuntary, intensely painful muscle contractions that nearly every athlete has experienced at some point. Some people experience them often and simply seem to be prone to muscle cramps.
Cramps usually hit at the end of intense workouts or during endurance events because fatigued muscles are more likely to cramp. Novice athletes are more likely to have cramps as they fatigue more quickly than seasoned exercisers. If you carefully progress your workouts, you will avoid unnecessary cramps. Heat, and not being used to the heat, also increases the frequency of cramps. When the seasons change and summer arrives, ease into workouts in the heat.
Additionally, carefully plan your fluids, electrolytes and carbohydrate intake to help avoid or delay muscle cramps.

Doc's Directive: Incorporate different types of dynamic stretches into your #recoveryroutine. ⁣
⁣
Here is an example of a stretch utilizing activation of dynamic range of motion. The side leg kick activates the deep gluteal and ABductor muscles, which oppose the leg ADDuctors. Alternating the ADDuctor stretch with the leg raise creates stability in the glutes while allowing deeper stretch of the inner thigh muscles. ⁣
⁣
The ADDuctors are muscles in the inner thighs that assist hip and leg movement in activities such as kicking and running. In general, ADDuctor muscles contract to bring movement towards midline while ABductors move away from the body. One way to remember this is that AB is for ABDUCT - to take away. ⁣

Doc's Directive: Incorporate different versions of the figure four stretch before and after runs.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Still working on these #tighthips and #tightglutes. The figure four stretch is a great stretch for the #piriformis muscle, which is sometimes difficult to reach. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
A tight or inflamed piriformis muscle can lead to pain in the lower back, knees, and ankles. This can be the result of activities of daily life such as poor posture and prolonged sitting or strenuous activities such as long-distance running. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Now that #tcsnycmarathon training is in full swing, runners should incorporate this stretch daily after foam rolling. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣

Doc's Directive: Incorporate different versions of the figure four stretch before and after runs.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Still working on these #tighthips and #tightglutes. The figure four stretch is a great stretch for the #piriformis muscle, which is sometimes difficult to reach. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ A tight or inflamed piriformis muscle can lead to pain in the lower back, knees, and ankles. This can be the result of activities of daily life such as poor posture and prolonged sitting or strenuous activities such as long-distance running. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Now that #tcsnycmarathon training is in full swing, runners should incorporate this stretch daily after foam rolling. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Before runs, use the stretch to activate your #glutes by contracting them then getting deeper into the stretch. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ After runs, place your hand on the knee that is at 90 degrees (right knee in photo) and try to press your knee into your hand for reciprocal inhibition to release the external hip rotators. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #docsdirective #fitnessmotivation #fitnessrecovery #fitnessjourney #activelifestyle #therekoverymd #rekovery #motivation #wellness #training #marathontraining #marathon #nycmarathon #running #mobility #healthyjoints #flexibility #training #movement #functionaltraining #prehab #physio #stretching #reciprocalinhibition #kneepain

What's your favorite serratus anterior exercise?
It is very common for the serratus anterior to be neglected or over powered by opposing muscles. For the serratus anterior some of those would be the upper traps, pectorals minor and levator scapulae.
When the upper traps, pectorals minor and levator scapulae become less mobile and overactive, it can lead to neck pain, headaches, upper back pain and multiple painful conditions.
By strengthening and activating the serratus anterior you are affectively inhibiting the opposing muscles functions. This process is called reciprocal inhibition. By using reciprocal inhibition along with mobility exercise and soft tissue techniques we can effectively treat your upper body dysfunction .

Incredible 4 hour course yesterday on mastering HVLA 🤩 “Mastering” HVLA takes many years but tips and tricks for students are beyond beneficial! HVLA (cracking) is one of the many useful techniques utilised by osteopathic practitioners 👩🏻‍⚕️ Here are the main messages I took away from everything that was discussed during this course 📚
1️⃣ Confidence is EVERYTHING .
2️⃣ You can’t half do a HVLA technique. You either do it or you don’t. Commit to it .
3️⃣ Being big and strong IS NOT a deal breaker. Yes it can be beneficial but there are many ways to be equally as good as a practitioner regardless of your size and strength .
4️⃣ Osteopathy is a field where there is always room for growth and learning .
We covered 30+ techniques in discussions, plenty of laughs and enjoyed some relaxing trapezius and scalene reciprocal inhibition and massage to end our session to relieve that post exams neck soreness ✨ .
Photos and videos from the course taken with permission from practitioner and patient. Face covered for the course director’s request regarding sharing of course content ✅

It’s not all about loosening a muscle. In the video my client is engaging the quad through both hip flexion and knee extension in order to neurologically “wake up” the quad and loosen the hamstring. Typically any tight muscle is going to have an antagonist muscle that needs to be strengthened. After meniscus replacement surgery my client has been having difficulty straightening her knee after being bent for a period of time. A combination of loosening the hamstrings and her gastrocnemius followed by engaging the quadricep in a fully contracted position to encourage both the loosening of the hamstring and strengthening of the quad neurologically via reciprocal inhibition. The tight muscles were also stretched and proprioceptors reset with post agonist and post antagonist PNF stretching. #cuppingmassage #reciprocalinhibition #pnfstretching #massagetherapy #posturecorrection #neurologicalactivation #themusclepro #meniscusreplacement

Your body is a deceiving machine. You THINK you need to work on something, while you might really NEED something the complete opposite. And by opposite, I mean it literally. Take this Baddha Konasana for example. You'd think you need to stretch and work your adductors and hip flexors, but what you really need is to engage the muscles that are there to do JUST THAT, your abductors and hip extensors. By trying to pull up the plate, something you can do by grabbing your feet, but this way you extend the spine a lot, you are engaging the muscles that go from your neck to your glutes, the whole group of spine extensors. By doing so, your brain shuts down their opposites muscles and allows the hips release, voila! Work on your strenght, flexibility will follow 😉
Tu cuerpo es una maquina engañosa. Vos CREES necesitar trabajar en algo, cuando en realidad NECESITAS enfocarte en algo completamente opuesto. Y lo digo literalmente. Baddha Konasana por ejemplo, normalmente dirias que tenes que estirar y abrir los aductores y flexores de cadera, pero lo que realmente necesitas es activar los musculos que están ahi para hacer exactamente eso, tus abductores y extensores de cadera. Tratando de levantar la pesa, algo que podes hacer agarrando los pies, pero de esta manera extendes la columna un monton, activas los músculos que van desde el cuello hasta los gluteos, el grupo completo de erectores de columna. De esta forma, tu cerebro apaga los musculos opuestos y permite que las caderas abran y liberen, voila! Trabaja en tu fuerza, la flexibilidad llega sola 😉

RECIPROCAL INHIBITION-ADDUCTOR STRETCH
.
This hold-relax technique of Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation(PNF) fires the hip abductors, which are the antagonists to the adductors. Naturally, through your proprioceptors, this will relax the adductor muscle group and allow for more range of motion and stretch to the adductors.
.
This technique could prove useful if you are a gymnast looking to do the splits and you just need those few extra degrees of range of motion to accomplish your goal!🤸🏽‍♂️ .
.
Swiped left for:
.
Do it yourself PNF stretch!
.
Utilize this to immediately increase your adductor Range of Motion (ROM)! However, it should be noted that these ROM benefits won’t last all day and every day from one bout of PNF stretching. The ROM benefits stick around for around an hour or less from your first initial bout. To make sure these benefits stick around more in the long term you should be doing multiple PNF stretch sessions throughout the week to get the most benefits of muscular strength🏋️‍♀️, ROM, and athletic performance.⛹️‍♂️

The Rotator Cuff: a complex muscle group of the shoulder that helps make very complicated biomechanical movement look easy. Also, one of the most injured muscles of the body and one to focus on to prevent such injuries.
__
There are multiple ways to exercise the rotator cuff. In this video I am demonstrating one essential movement/exercise that you have likely seen before focusing on the external rotators (suprasinatus, infraspinatus, and teres minor). HOWEVER, I wanted to bring light to a simple adjustment that can help you isolate these muscles a lot more.
__
WHY THE TOWEL?
There’s a phenomenon of the body called reciprocal inhibition. Basically, when you contract the muscles of one side of a joint, the muscles on the opposing side will relax to allow for normal smooth movement. For this external rotation exercise, I am attempting to isolate the rotator cuff muscles by QUIETING the DELTOID muscle. The posterior fibers of the deltoid also assist with shoulder external rotation — so if your deltoid is already pretty strong, this movement will be mainly accomplished by the delt, while the rotator cuff muscles go along for the ride. 🎢
__
Try it out and palpate your deltoid with and without holding the towel TIGHT against your body.

Muscle energy techniques are a form of manipulative treatment where the patient actively uses their muscles against a counter force to reduce hypertonic muscles, restore range of movement, increase joint mobility, increase blood circulation and strengthen weak muscles.

This pull up bar has so many options for changing grip,I hardly know what to do with myself! Using a variety of hand positions to perform the same action alters the ‘line of pull’ on the fascia throughout the body. When Strength training, there is an opportunity to create or increase the number of Strong, supple, and responsive fascial lines throughout the body.
If you’re going to do more than one set of an exercise, consider a slight shift in hand or foot position to experience what I’m talking about. I used 5 hand positions during this advanced sequence!

First— time in green spaces with people we love is essential to optimized well-being. We love our MEDX equipment, our studio, and high-intensity training; but nothing beats moving our bodies and breathing hard in nature. Especially with our nieces and nephews. A core value of our family and our company is Time in Nature.⁣ ⁣
⁣⁣
Second— this photo of us and one of our nieces was taken this weekend in McMinnville. This was at the beginning of the hike... before the run-in with the hornets’ nest. 😳 No worries, we’re all ok, only 4 stings total & none on the baby! 🙏🏼 But the brave niece pictured here walked out of the woods with 3 stings. After we arrived back at our car we had a debriefing. We asked, what did we all learn and what will we do differently next time. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
On the drive home to Bend we discussed it further, we did research and discussed wilderness first aid training— we want to responsibly adventure with our nieces and nephews!!⁣
⁣⁣
One of our core values is learning. We are constantly learning new things: exercise, training protocols, nutrition, yoga, bodywork, philosophy, spirituality. We are both sponges for information. ⁣
⁣
Dave has 2 additional certs to his LMT— neurokinetic therapy levels 1 & 2 and he’s currently working on a Human Movement Specialist certification.

Core stability utilizing RECIPROCAL INHIBITION: Contracting a muscle group on one side of a joint can relax or inhibit the muscle group on the opposite side. Here we’re contracting the hamstrings to try and inhibit the quads. There are some core exercises that require a lot of hip flexor/quad activation and it’s very easy to overcompensate causing your core activation to be less than adequate. Try utilizing this reciprocal inhibition technique and let us know what you think! Instead of a body blade you can pump your hands up and down like “Pilates 100s” or try crunches or even sit ups.
1️⃣ Hook heels/ankles at edge of bed. Lean back
2️⃣ We’re using a body blade to contract the abdominals. Try Pilates 100s-like arm movement or crunch up and down.

Try Pilates 100s-like arm movement or crunch up and down. 3️⃣ Don’t forget to smile 😁. #bodyblade #coreworkout #core #abs #hamstrings #quads #physicaltherapy #physiotherapy #pt #exercise #therehabgroup #temecula #murrieta #reciprocalinhibition #inhibition #thursday #almosttheweekend #temeculaca #temeculaparkway

Engage. Your. Quads.
😉
Yoga, lifting, whatever the movement, be mindful and keep your quads engaged. It will *keep you in a safe range of motion (i.e. prevent injury)
*create a strong foundation for more complex movements
*strengthen the muscles around your knees giving more stability *give addition opening through the back of your body - the Hamstrings! 💥more tips in my stories💥

I have been happily working through weekends for a while now. My life has more purpose than it ever has. I’ve taken on more responsibility than any other time minus Army service. Self care is critical as life’s stress piles up on us. I’m vibrating right along with the squirrels, dogwood trees, and bluebirds after an amazing sound healing session with Eric and his Singing Bowls. His work is profound. My exhausted arm-the arm that does most of my bodywork- felt like it was correcting itself while bowls sang. I feel both physically and psychologically refreshed. I feel as though I achieved an emotional reset. WOW!

I have a little secret I want to share with you. 😊
⚡
Ready? Here it is.....
⚡
You dont need to train like a crazy person, forcing your body to move in ways it doesn't like, to be fit and healthy.
⚡
Train your body to move the way it is intended, by moving FUNCTIONALLY. That is to say, if you ever find yourself in a position that wouldn't make sense in real life - then it will by definition work against you in the long run.
⚡
So get out there and step, walk, jog, run, kick a ball, hop from rock to rock, push up from the ground, pull yourself up to a tree branch. Pivot, squat, bend over to pick things up and help someone reach a high object here and there.
⚡
Its deceptively simple and brilliantly elegant. It's all you really need. So the next time you're suffering, ask yourself, 'does this movement emulate real life?' 🤔

Here are a few of my favorite #HipMobility stretches ➡️➡️ With the first two videos, flexing your glute will give you more of a stretch in the front of your hip #ReciprocalInhibition
The exercise in third video is still a work in progress - this one is more challenging. The goal is to keep your hips even and spine neutral when you sit back. If you can’t keep your hips in line you can elevate your knee until your mobility works up to it
Working towards eventually being able to balance a water bottle on my back without it rolling off

By Request: Help for Tight Hamstrings, We all get this way from sitting too much for work/study/driving...
.
This is a technique called #reciprocalinhibition ~ Which makes use of the body’s natural divine design. We wouldn’t be able to move well without this natural mechanism. Basically, when one set of muscles fire, the opposite/antagonist muscles must release
.
Example: Walking/Running, when your Quadriceps engage to extend your legs, Your hamstrings must release. If they remained tight they would be working against your need to move. So this is a natural mechanism we can harness to our benefit for the purpose of stretching/releasing muscles
.
So, To help release very tight hamstrings, You have the option and I recommend- first working the opposing muscle group, the Quadriceps. You can do this in a variety of ways, a Wall Sit, some Squats, or for example here I’m doing “lightning bolt” (in English) yoga posture, alternating between Forward bend, and Lightning bolt (basically a squat position with arms overhead, hands clasped) Try to gently roll the shoulders down away from the ears~ they always want to creep up... and we don’t like creepers now do we, no. ;P Other tips: low back naturally tends to overarch, Really try to fight this, pull your bellybutton in engage your abs (to support your spine!)
.
You can enter lightning bolt rolling up from forward bend, or simply by sitting into it from already standing~ good to repeat at least 2x .
.
We’ll see how much loads in 1 min and I will follow up with the rest. Always keep the knees soft / aka slightly bent, never locked out or hyperextended. I do encourage gently bending and then working toward straightening the knees and legs. This all takes time so just be patient and gentle with yourself. Rome wasn’t built in a day

I had lunch with a new friend last week. He was already at the table when I arrived, his smoothie in hand. He shared that the smoothie would put him at his max for carbohydrate intake for the day. He shared about his new diet (keto) and his new fitness challenge with his friends— 15 minutes minimum each day of exercise. (People often share with me their current health/fitness regime when they learn I’m a trainer & wellness coach.) ⁣
⁣
We talked about other things, like business and entrepreneurship and then my oatmeal arrived at the table. My new friend looked at my bowl of food and said, “you can eat that because you workout all the time.”⁣
⁣
To which I said, “no sir, I workout less time than you. I Strength Train one time each week for 30 minutes. By my math you’re exercising for more than 100 minutes every week.” ⁣
⁣
More is not always better, friends. Better is better. You can spread out a few medium-low intense workouts throughout the week or you can bring it 100% intensity once a week and have more time to __________________. ⁣
⁣
More intensity, less frequency! More sustainability, less insanity! More life, less time wasted. 💚💪🏼⁣

Yoga outside—SAVASANA outside!— is one of my favorite things. Resting— surrendering—to the practice, to the earth, to the effort and the power— and allowing the practice to settle on our bones is the WORK! Anyone can show up for a 60 minute physical practice, can we show up for the stillness? The integration? This is my work right now and I love it! ⁣

Outdoor yoga coming to a wild space near you this month! ⁣

More #activeelongation for this two show Saturday! With this exercise you will be contracting your quadriceps and glutes to get #reciprocalinhibition just as in the lower level exercise we showed you last week! The most important part is the second video, which shows you how to retrain your brain in the new range of motion to help maintain your gains and be able to utilize this length in function. *****
Laying on your back, always beginning with the opposite leg bent, pull your knee into your chest. Interlock your hands behind your thigh. Flex your foot and then press your thigh into your hands and extend the knee until it is fully straightened. If you have shorter arms you may need to use a towel behind the thigh (or return to the lower level exercise at the wall). Hold each contraction until fatigue and after 5-10 repetitions, perform ankle circles for further fascial mobilization. At the end of the last contraction, move your hands to the front of the thigh, add light resistance and perform a prolonged hold at this range followed by small contractions out of and into new range. **** Let us know how it goes! Remember to check in with a PT if you have any neural tension while working your #posteriorcompartment!

A brief look at a Reciprocal Inhibition technique to help alleviate tightness and muscle restrictions in the pec minor and the surrounding muscles of the entire shoulder girdle. Along with some deep tissue, stretch work and an action plan for further sessions and home care I’m sure he’ll be back to benching heavy in no time.

43% of amatuer golfers have a limited toe touch versus 17% on the PGA TOUR. Limited toe touch can cause excessive knee bend, rounded shoulders, poor dynamic posture, and early extension (makes it difficult to stay in posture).
🔻
Try this band resisted toe touch to help activate the flexors and stretch the posterior muscles. Shift the hips back on the way down. Look between your knees. And take a deep breath at the bottom.
🔻
Try it and notice the immediate improvement in range of motion 👌

HIP FLEXOR STRETCH: ILIOPSOAS FOCUS
📍Many people trying to stretch their hip flexors will make the common mistake of allowing their low back to arch ❌ This is not effective because the psoas (deep hip flexor muscle) attaches from the lumbar vertebrae of the spine and inserts into the femur (upper leg bone).
📍Contracting your glutes will also deactivate your hip flexors via reciprocal inhibition since the glutes are antagonist of the hip flexors. EXAMPLE: When you flex your biceps your triceps HAVE TO relax to allow movement.
📍To effectively stretch your hip flexors you have to contract your glutes to posteriorly tilt your pelvis. From there you can shift your body forward to get more hip extension. ✅
📍In conjunction with stretching your HF’s you also want to strengthen them because tight muscles can also be weak.
📍You also want to stretch your other hip flexor muscles like the Rectus Femoris, TFL, & Sartorius.

#activeelongation UPDATE! This exercise utilizes #reciprocalinhibition to gain range of motion in the #posteriorfascialcompartment for those of us who have straight leg raise measurements below 90 degrees (read: pretty tight hammies!). ***
Using a doorway, scoot close enough that your ischial tuberosity (“sitz bone”) is in contact with the wall, knee bent to chest and the opposite leg bent on the floor. Using your quadriceps, slide your heel up the wall as far as you can, hold this contraction until your quad fatigues and slide it back down for a break (shortened for the demo!). To make it more tolerable, fill in the space that is still not in contact with the wall with a pillow.

This exercise utilizes #reciprocalinhibition to gain range of motion in the #posteriorfascialcompartment for those of us who have straight leg raise measurements below 90 degrees (read: pretty tight hammies!). *** Using a doorway, scoot close enough that your ischial tuberosity (“sitz bone”) is in contact with the wall, knee bent to chest and the opposite leg bent on the floor. Using your quadriceps, slide your heel up the wall as far as you can, hold this contraction until your quad fatigues and slide it back down for a break (shortened for the demo!). To make it more tolerable, fill in the space that is still not in contact with the wall with a pillow. *** The pre-test/post-test photo is from about 30 seconds of this activity! #hamstrings #physicaltherapy #getthelegup #dancemedicine #performanceenhancement #nextlevelcomingsoon

Pin and stretch technique with r
Reciprocal Inhibition! 👍👍
.
This video clip is from a longer video lesson on LearnMuscles Continuing Education (LMCE), my video streaming subscription service for manual therapists and movement professionals. 🌟🌟
.
To have a more powerful pin and stretch technique, we can add the neural reflex known as reciprocal inhibition. 👍👍
.
Reciprocal Inhibition: Whenever we concentrically contract movers (agonists) of a joint movement, the brain knows that the musculature on the “other side” of the joint, in other words, the antagonists of the movement, need to be relaxed (reciprocally inhibited) so they will lengthen to allow the movement. 👍👍👍👍
.
This neural inhibition stretching technique is known as Agonist Contract (AC) stretching (because the agonists contract causing an inhibition to the antagonists, our target muscles). 😊😊
.
In this video, to pin the right lateral flexion neck musculature and then ask the client to actively move into left lateral flexion. 👍👍
.
AC stretching technique can be added to the stretch of any muscle or muscle group. 👍👍
.
AC stretching technique is the neuromechanical basis for Aaron Mattes’ technique, AIS (Active Stretching Technique). 👍

More and more research is confirming decreased strength of the hamstrings after static stretching as well as decreased power and distance for jumping! Active elongation (dynamic stretching) is a much safer method for gaining length in this muscle group (and others) before performance. These techniques also refresh your brain and allow it to recognize these greater ranges of motion for better maintenance of gained mobility! #examplescomingsoon #themoreyouknow #knowledgeispower #staytuned #dynamicstretching #activeelongation #reciprocalinhibition #refreshthehomunculus #research #physicaltherapy #getthelegupsafely #jumphighersafely #performanceenhancement #dancemedicine

#ardhaChandrasana -- Who can forget #halfMoon ? 😉
Balancing Half Moon pose is an intense stretch for the hamstrings of the standing leg. So you're stretching and balancing in this pose. Finding balance and stability by contracting the quadriceps signals the hamstrings to relax, which is what allows them to stretch.

💃🏼April's class focus is all about building a strong, steady and stable foundation in standing balances, using Dancer Pose (Natarajasana) as a peak pose.💃🏼
.
To build a stable base we'll be strengthening and mobilising the feet and ankles and exploring the concepts of 'active feet' and 'short foot' in various poses.
.
Working from there up, we'll strengthen other key areas including the hamstring and gluteus muscles (buttocks) which will not only help us to stabilise during standing balances but will also cleverly encourage the front of the hip and front of the thigh (quads) to open as we move towards dancer pose. (For those of you that like to geek-out, this contract-relax relationship between opposing muscles is achieved through a process called reciprocal inhibition).
.
Moving up again, the core (corset) is also going to get lots of attention to keep the spine safe during backbending and the shoulders and chest will get some love to enable us to work towards catching our foot in Dancer pose, be it with the arms overhead (as in this pic) or with the arm down and reaching back behind the torso.
.
As always there will be lots of options available so that you can make the practice your own. .
See you in class soon 🧘🏼‍♀️🙏🏻💜

Muscles cramps and reciprocal inhibition:
When hiking intensively or performing legs exercises, in stressed conditions, while dehydrating and losing electrolytes, we might experience muscle cramps.
Muscle cramps of course are not an issue of legs only.
In many cases, we may want to refuel our body with water and electrolytes.
Also, a useful technique for a faster recovery from muscle cramp is by doing reciprocal inhibition stretches.
Unlike just stretching the cramped muscle directly, which can actually cause some damage you would like to make a contraction stretch as reciprocal inhibition.
This works because opposing pairs of muscles are able to inhibit each other from firing, an effect called reciprocal inhibition. It's essentially a signal for that opposite muscle to relax. The trick works on any muscle in your body.
Activation of an opposing muscle group with resisted tension forces the contracted muscle to relax. For example, a cramp in the posterior, lower leg can be relieved by applying resisted tension to the anterior, lower leg muscles. When stretching, it is easier to stretch a muscle that is relaxed than to stretch a contracted muscle. By inducing the antagonists to relax during a stretch due to contraction of the agonist, massage therapists can take advantage of reciprocal inhibition by getting a more effective stretch.
If the cramp is in your hamstring, activate your quadriceps by straightening your leg.
If the cramp is in your quad, activate your hamstrings (bend your knee).
If the bottom of your foot is cramping, lift your foot and spread out your toes.
Take care of your body 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️ #musclecramps

#ActiveStretch vs #PassiveStretch. #ReciprocalInhibition. #Reciprocalinhibitory Reflex. #PressurePoint Therapy.
Focus on the contraction of the antagonists (quads) for 5-10 seconds, in slow, controlled repititions, rather than holding the stretch pose on the tight muscles (hamstrings) for 30 seconds. Be creative as you use these ideas to create your own stretches where you need more flexibility 🙂
Homework is to look up videos on actin and myosin to see the mechanisms for muscle contraction and relaxation. The #BlueChipChiropractic #chiropractic Facebook page has the rest of the video
