It’s all about perspective
You have a choice:
☝️You can either choose to worry
✌️You can choose to be positive
Trust me, this should be the most stressful time for me as a business owner but I am really seeing the positives of finding my routine again and getting in a groove. Self-care is the most important thing right now. If you can take care of yourself mentally then you can give more love ❤️ to those around you. Get outside!
Checking it once👆, checking it twice ✌️.
It was totally my pleasure to meet you Greg. So enlightening to talk tech and more importantly, how to make actionable change! Oh yeah, we did some bike fitting too 😉
Today I had the pleasure of meeting Kur Sohn of @velofitpt What an awesome and enlightening experience to be able to talk tech, hang out and do some bike adjustments.
One of the great things about today was connecting with someone who uses tech the way we do but knows these are just numbers. It is what we DO with these numbers that matters. Today mattered and I am happy to have been able to meet him.

“Allow me to reintroduce myself. My name is KUR…” 🎶. Hello👋, I just wanted to tell everyone that during this time of craziness that there is hope. I know it doesn’t seem like it, but there is. You will see humanly acts of kindness that eventually will surface and surprise you. I know the news and media wants to take this time to gain their ratings, etc and catch you with their scare tactics, but it will be okay. We will be alright together
I also wanted to take this time to shout out to all the business owners out there. I remember when I first started this journey as a business owner, I had no freakin’ idea how to navigate it. I never hired a business coach (I still don’t have one) and I learned how to do everything by feel. Learning from my mistakes was the most important thing to understand. Understanding how to deal with failure made me grow. But when a situation like this comes up where you feel like you have no control??? It puts you in a place of humility and desperation. You feel helpless. Don’t worry, I’ll be fine but please look out for those that you know are hurting because of the downturn
So I know this is a hard place for everyone… especially for the small business owners who struggle to even pay rent and pay their employees so I’m using this platform to encourage you to go help out the local restaurants, coffee shops, yoga studios, and bike shops. Be creative and understand that this country is driven by these entrepreneurs who’ve risked a lot to get where they are
Please go support your local business as best you can and help out the people that are scrambling right now. We are all here in the service industry to really make people happy and put a smile on their face. Hoping to change lives, little by little
We still over here smilin’. If you need help getting through this time, let us know!

RPE: Rating of Perceived Exertion
(Modified Borg Scale)
Clinically, I have been using RPE for exercise prescription for clients that are just getting back into training or even functioning while in pain. RPE is a great tool for self-regulating your activity and having the discipline to actually “listen to your body.” So don’t discount the power of simplicity. Here are the pros & cons for using RPE for exercise prescription
🔹It is universal and everyone can understand it
🔹Most commonly used method to get a person to understand their response to exercise
🔹A person/athlete can self regulate an exercise based on how it feels
🔹Don’t need to know an athletes fitness level to prescribe workouts
🔸Does not allow for precise manipulation of physiological response to HIIT training
🔸Duration of exercise affects RPE (longer duration typically yields a lower power output)
🔸Precision is limited to target a response of an exercise if you are targeting aerobic or anaerobic systems
🔸Cannot be used to target precise HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) types

To be an effective Physical Therapist, you have to learn the art of coaching. I can tell you for a fact I’ve failed as a coach as I’ve learned how to shape my business (ask my past clients), but I’m learning and I know I’m better for it! #Repost @scienceforsport

👉 In this infographic, we highlight some of the key characteristics included in the art of coaching. ⠀⠀
‼️ Don't get us wrong, there is still a science to the art and factors behind the science of coaching are imperative to becoming an expert coach; they all play a key role.⠀⠀

💊Assisted Split Squat

💊BW Split Squat
💊2 DB Split Squat
💊Goblet Split Squat
blah, blah, blah... [Insert why this exercise is good for you here] 😜. Just do it...
〰️Jump Rope: such an easy activity that we used to do as kids but where did it go?
Battling tendinopathy (pathology and pain in the tendon) can be very frustrating
🖐Trust me, I know. I’m training for my first marathon and I’ve had to back off on my mileage due to some nagging calf muscle complex strains. I finally pulled the plug 🔌 a week ago and went by feel to listen to my body and implemented some active rest, isometrics, dry needling and gradual tendon loading. I think I’ve let it heal enough and now started some jump rope for some easy introduction to plyometrics
Once you’re pain free try adding some jump rope (if you are coordinated enough) a couple of times a week to get the tendon loading and build that tissue up again
Jump Rope Routine 🦘:
3 Rounds of
2 leg hops x 10
1 leg hops x 10 Right
1 leg hops x 10 Left
Alternating R&L x 20
Full rest b/t sets
A little goes a long way. 👍
💪 Strong is sexy
❌ Skinny is not
This obsession with being skinny AF needs to be kicked to the curb. Unless you’re getting paid to do your sport, start bulletproofing your body and invest in yourself💰
I’ve been nagging my wife for YEARS to invest in her body and I’m so proud of her consistency over the past month. It starts with small, incremental and sustainable change to live a healthier lifestyle

2 KB cleans x 3
2 KB press x 2
2 KB squat x 3

4 Rounds of Echo Bike 10” on/20” off Intervals

💪 How strong is strong enough?
Having strength standards allows a coach to properly set goals for athletes. The strength demands in cycling/triathlon/MTB/Enduro is very different depending on the discipline. Strength categories are a good start and an important distinction to make in the process of getting athletes more resilient for their specific sport
These strength categories start the discussion on strength and how to integrate it. Too much misinformation is out there and I’m glad that @trainerroad was able to start the process of integrating the strength and conditioning world principles into the endurance athlete world
📝Note that these are the minimum requirement standards that athletes should start with given their discipline

This is still a question we get asked all the time. Read up people! #Repost @montanarunninglab
Is static stretching e.g., stretching a muscle for 30 seconds or longer, bad? No, but runners who stretch should do so with the understanding that neither performance or injury-prevention benefits will result.
Time spent stretching is probably better spent doing resistance training, which has been shown to improve running performance AND tendon and bone health.
Does static stretching improve joint motion? Yes, but it most likely does so by increasing our tolerance to stretching discomfort via central mechanisms i.e., neural; rather than actually making a muscle longer in the long term.
Does dynamic stretching or a dynamic warmup e.g., light jogging, jumping jacks, leg swings; reduce injury? No. What about improve performance? Dynamic stretching or a dynamic warmup seems to improve subsequent running performance and, at the least, certainly doesn’t hinder running.

📦 If you’re gonna do box jumps, do it right. #Repost @dr.eddiejo
A little change of pace with this infographic. This post is not so much the usual scientific discussion but rather a reminder of the importance of assessing risks vs. benefits when selecting an exercise or in this case, the manner in which an exercise is performed. I decided to do a simple infographic on the box jump because this is an exercise that is way too commonly misused in many aspects. We've all seen it before especially on social media, an individual attempting to show a great feat of athleticism by stacking up plyo boxes, weight plates, or whatever they can stack up to a height only clearable if the jump was performed with hips overly flexed and knees tucked up way too high. Unless giving off the illusion of an impressive vertical jump is important to you, performing the box jump in such a manner has no useful purpose or benefit, unnecessarily increases the risk for injury, and defeats the purpose of the box jump. I've included a few dos and don'ts in the infographic I feel are important to communicate. To add a bit more detail to bullets #5 and #6, it is recommended to step down from the box instead of jumping back down backwards and quickly jumping back up again (as many do). This would defeat the purpose of using the box jump to reduce landing impact during repetetive max jumps. The box jump IN ITSELF is not a reactive strength exercise. If the box jump is to be incorporated into a reactive strength exercise, it is recommended to use two plyo boxes in series. Perform a depth jump from the first plyo box and land on the second one. Most importantly, with any exercise, common sense is your best friend (I've worked on way too many legal cases as an expert witness involving trainers and coaches instructing clients to perform box jumps like the figure on the left or as a conditioning exercise.... broken vertebrae, concussions, broken ribs, punctured kidneys, bloody shins... You name it).
ConQUADStador aka Spanish Squats 😉
Great diagnostic test and exercise prescription for those who suffer from quad and/or patellar tendon pain
▪️Grab a thick super band and loop it around a rack or solid column
▪️Place the band behind the knee at the joint crease line
▪️Squat backwards and maintain an upright spine
▪️Perform 4x45” holds with 1-2’ rests between sets
▪️The key is to feel the burn 🔥 in the quads
Note: If you don’t feel the quads burn, get your trunk more upright and lean back. (I’m a little too leaned forward)
Thankful & blessed 🙏
That’s why we’ve been telling people to change the band location for these warmups! 🤏changes make a big difference. #Repost @physionetwork
Rehab considerations! 🍑
A new study found that band placement around the feet generated the highest amount of gluteal activity without increasing TFL activity when compared to band placement around the knees or ankles (Lewis et al, 2018). We reviewed this study earlier this year.
