One of my favorite ways to warm up is to get down on the ground and crawl around. Even if you just hold this position like a plank, you get a lot of good stuff out of it.
I know you’re wondering why, so let me explain. Here’s the agenda:
- Intro to “The Core”
- Arm loading
- Ab loading
- Spine position
- Rib cage position
- Pelvic position
It’s been a busy week over here.
I’ve been working on this huge project (more to come soon), so I haven’t had time to write much up.
I did, however, get an email from Thieme publishers about a coupon for my favorite anatomy atlas, Gilroy’s.
The coupon is only valid through Tuesday the 7th, so if you want $30 off this great book, click here to order it through the publisher’s website and then enter the coupon code ATLAS at checkout.
Gilroy’s has some of the best images (blows Netter’s out of the water). If you need better anatomy pictures to look at, this is a great addition to your library.
Just here looking out for my people.
Have a great week!
I know I say this all the time, but this week was amazing. Here’s a cool video I watched and a little info about a super fun new sport you have to try.
At about the 5:00 mark, the guy making this video below points out the relationship between the transversus abdominis and the diaphragm. The perpendicular fiber direction is crazy. Make sense why you can get so much out of those muscles.
The Beginning of Bubble Soccer
I say “beginning” because this is so fun and I hope to do it again. Brandon Brown, his girlfriend, and I went out to see what all the fuss was about. Check this out:
Holy sweat balls (it’s really hot in that ball), I forgot how much fun contact sports were—especially when you’re playing against a bunch of 110-pound boys. My neck is crazy sore today.
