The final instalment of bear crawl shoulder workout!
Biggest thing to remember with this is to keep your back flat and not “harbour bridge”!
There’s no need to progress to this until the holds and taps are comfortable!
Overall adding a band at the wrists to a bear crawl is a great way to increase ‘cuff activation’ in a safe and supported exercise!

Who says being in a #moonboot with a #brokenfoot means you can’t #crossfit 💪🏻
Doing super light weights for two reasons:
1. Not aloud to put body weight on my foot yet so it is just resting on the ground and no weight is on it... traininging all one legged! Making sure the glutes on both sides are activated!
2. In shoulder rehab after injuring my right shoulder so I’m not aloud to go heavy yet as I do my rehab program to strengthen up my back and shoulders again from injury. :
🚨 ADIÓS KEVIN DE BRUYNE 🚨 "El Manchester City puede confirmar que Kevin De Bruyne ha sufrido una lesión en el ligamento lateral externo de la rodilla derecha. No necesita pasar por el quirófano y estará alrededor de tres meses fuera de los terrenos de juego. Todos en el City le deseamos una buena recuperación", informó la entidad a través de un comunicado.
I'm really struggling with these broken ribs! My hubby took me to one of my favourite places, @balgove today to cheer me up and get me moving.....and I must admit I wasn't as sore today, keeping moving seems to be the way forward.....but my bruises are still sore, and swollen, the pain in my ribs still catches me when I move certain ways and makes me feel sick.....and nights are the worst-it takes an unreal effort to get myself up from lying in bed, and that leaves me with a horrible claustrophobic feeling of being trapped there, which is causing me to panic....its hell!! On top of that there's no riding for me 😢 although it has meant extra time on the ground growing my bond with Bo, who is fast proving to be my horse of a lifetime (don't worry, Buzz is still my favourite despite doing this to me 😂)
I’ve been SO lucky and blessed to be able to do therapy this summer for my back injury, (more on that later), but one downside was that I had to take a break from working out (beyond some small things). For those of you who know me and my fitness journey over the last nearly 2 years, know what a challenge it was for me to put the breaks on. 😫 But now I’m cleared to reintroduce my fave @physique57 workouts back into my life, and praise the Lord 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 they have this awesome new series called Barre 101. At the start of each day they go over proper technique for the exercises, and follow with a shortish workout. It has been the PERFECT way for me to ease my body back into the barre game, and make sure I am using correct form, so I don’t undo any of the progress we’ve been making on my back. Thanks @tanyabeckerp57 for always having my back! 🤪
Last night on a routine training ride, myself and several other cyclists hit an unmarked patch of road construction. It was impossible to avoid it as we had zero indication it was even there. I hit the crushed rock hard and lost control. I have suffered a concussion, a shoulder injury, and a ton of road rash. Atlantis is trashed but appears repairable. My helmet is toast (thankfully I never ride without it). My pride is hurting but my spirits remain intact as we hope for a speedy and complete recovery. We are all very lucky that this was not much MUCH worse. 🤕

In order for athletes, coaches, and trainers to better prevent injuries, it is important to understand what causes injuries to begin with. The fact is, no one thing causes an unforced injury (forced injury = injury due to tissue trauma from a direct impact with an external force). However, there are several factors within the human movement system that can increase the risk of an injury occurring. These factors are: - Lack of flexibility
- Neuromuscular inefficiency
- Pattern overload
- Arthrokinetic / Joint motion dysfunction
- Improper biomechanics / body movements
Naturally in our day to day activities we as humans will behave/move in ways that will negatively influence the above factors and thus increase the risk for injury during exercise. For example, it is common for athletes to experience tightness or a lack of flexibility in the hip flexor muscles due to the frequency of being in a seated position, which is a form of pattern overload. To counteract the effects of these behaviors it is important that we include exercises in our training program reinforce effective movement patterns, stretch tight muscles, and activate muscles that frequently in a stretched/relaxed position. Swipe ⬅️ to see a few exercises that can help prevent knee injuries as well as counteract the effects of pattern overload from sitting down.

There’s a wealth of wisdom out there from our humankind. We must remember to always respect and learn from those who have tested, trialled and reviewed before us. To be scared means something different for each of us. Challenge yourself to push that boundary today. What’s one thing that chills your bones - make the call; run further; jump higher; just do it!!
My body recovered super well after my birthday week full of treat foods and alcohol. Today I’m back down to the exact weight I was prior to my birthday. On a shitty note, I’ve injured my back, I’m hoping it’s just a bad strain and nothing too serious! Because of my knee injury i had been focusing more on strength but now that my back is hurt as well it’s been tough figuring out what to do. So I’ve been doing the bike still for y daily cardio, as well as walking my dog. And I’ve just been doing some light weights sitting down for my back. Although my knee injury has been going on for six months now, I’m praying that my back heals up in the next couple of weeks! 🤷🏼♀️😭🏃🏻♀️💦💪🏻 #weightlosstransformation#fitness#transformation#healthylifestyle#gym#weightloss#weightlossjourney#weightlossmotivation#injury#weights#cardio#40kgsdown
Long post incoming: so this is a HUGE accomplishment for me right now, 500x6 tap n go. Back in July I got humbled hard and strained my right erector/paraspinal doing heavy deadlifts. I was suffering from so much pain and I thought thats it, its over, not competing this year. It sent me into a mini depression slump and I didnt know what to do. Thankfully my friends supported me and kept me going no matter what, they kept me honest with myself and made me rehab properly - taking it day by day slow and steady. After taking this massive L I heard a snippet from one of the greatest PLs of all time: Eddy Coan. In a nutshell he said that "you only have so many heavy singles in your lifetime - MAKE THEM ALL COUNT and stop going off program for the instagram likes." He is absolutely right and I have come back stronger than ever thanks to focusing on recovery and building work capacity all over again. I had more in the tank here but I felt like my back had taken enough. In fact I felt ZERO PAIN through this whole set. I am so happy right now and I'm gonna keep riding this momentum and get ready for comp later this year. Big things are coming so stay tuned. Huge thank you to my gym crew who supports me day in and day out I fucking love you guys and I wouldnt be doing this without all of you. @email@example.com@damiane_95@firstname.lastname@example.org@john_tran121@maurice__fitness@james_juhrden#powerlifting#progress#injury#recovery#gains#strength#powerthrough#slowandsteady#bodybuilding#fitness#happiness
This very talented #danceroftheday is currently prepping for the Mid-America #oireachtas in Kentucky! Meet Gabby (@gabbyirishdancer) who attends Corda Mór Irish Dance! @corda_mor_irish_dance
Gabby spoke about a recent injury she had to overcome:
"I just finished competing at the Irish Open Feis." She said. "I’m really excited that I’m dancing again."
What was the injury?:
"In April at dance I broke my 5th metatarsal in my right foot. It’s a very popular bone to break it’s even called “the dancer break”. I was in a cast and crutches for 4 weeks. I did a lot of #Pilates and posture exercises. After that I was put in boot for 2 weeks and was able to do physical therapy with a special dance therapist that allowed me to use a machine that let me dance!!
(Gabby even sent a video of her working in #physicaltherapy! Check it out in the last frame!)
So what DOES that thing do anyway?:
"The machine allowed me to dance at 70% body weight and then gravity handled the rest. As I kept doing physical therapy exercises, pilates, etc I was able to move up to 100% body weight and I could dance again!!💕
Make no mistake, this injury was a huge hurdle for Gabby. She admitted there were many tears along the way, and I can only imagine the frustration of not being able to dance. I know a lot of you have written in about your injuries and can relate!!
Her nutrition advice for those with bone injuries?:
"I ate goat cheese to try to heal the bone. It’s high on calcium, protein, low fat, and it’s easy to digest.
How did she feel when the doc gave her the thumbs up?:
"I cried I was so happy😂💕😆"
When you get injured, it really makes you think about what's important. Gabby is a great example of a fighter. Give her some love in the comments below, & if you have an injury story to share, please feel free! Our bodies can be amazing things. But so can our minds! Together we can overcome anything!!!

Footwork Friday 🎉
👣Do you have good toe control? Here is a simple assessment/exercise I do in the clinic to see how well the smaller muscles in our feet are working.
👣Good control from the bottom is vital for lower body resilience! The knees and hips can be negatively affected if the foot doesn't have proper control, and vice versa! .
🌍It's never as simple as just assessing one joint. We always have to take a look at the entire kinetic chain to properly diagnose the cause of the injury. Everything is connected!
❌If you aren't addressing the cause and just treating the symptoms, you bet that injury will come crawling back sooner than later.
Want to see what we can do to build up your lower body resilience? Prevent new and old injuries from coming back? Fix that nagging hip/knee/foot pain? Do super fun exercises like this? 🙋🏻
New patients always welcome 🎉

Why Alex K trusts us with his injuries💛: "Being active or just living life, aches and pains will occur. I wanted to take the time to thank the entire SPC Team for always getting me back to 100%. Through the many years, no matter the injury, (shoulder, back, hip) SPC always took the right approach. Your knowledge and treatments are by far the best in the city. Jay is simply amazing with his hands but also a great guy which always makes going for treatment so much better. When neurologically my body was not firing on all cylinders, Carrie recommended acupuncture with Wei and after a couple of treatments, I was sold and back to normal. Friendly faces, great people and best service in town, thank you Carrie, Jay and team for all your amazing work."

Here is a case of polydactylism, in which the patient is born with extra digits! Polydactylism is a fairly common congenital abnormality.
The extra digits are usually a small piece of soft tissue that can be removed. It can contain bone without joints and it is rarely a complete functioning digit. In this case, the patient has several extra fingers! Usually, patients choose to have the extra digits surgically removed. The condition has an incidence of 1 in every 500 live births.

If I Had seen this pic in the past I may not have been happy or proud of it because I wasn't totally ripped with abs etc. However I had overcome some big battles and injuries this year. I'm so happy to be back on a journey feeling good, motivated, and healthy again. One year ago I tore my ACL and was down for the count. I went to rehab it for a few months and got it functioning correctly. (2nd pic shows me running on an Alter G anti gravity treadmill to help return function to my knee.) This year I broke my collar bone. The worst part was I didn't know it was broken for a while or how it had happened. It is slowly healing after PRP treatments though I'm not able to lift heavy or do many movements for obvious reasons. I had a few other scares that ended up being false alarms. Even though it's been rough and social media makes everything look great I kept going. So my insight after all of this is to NEVER give up and work around hurdles that are in the way. You can always do SOMETHING. When I couldn't lift I ran and did functional movement. When I could barely walk I did lots of core movement and upper body.
No matter the circumstances you can keep going. 💝 I'm so grateful for all of the doctors, family, hubby, friends and physical therapists that have helped me along the way this year. Stay strong friends and happy Friday!
