Our work with elite athletes serves as the proving grounds for our methods. Most people don’t play professional sports. But if our methods help athletes at the highest levels, they can work for anyone.
I hit the gym this morning and just focused on practicing those movements I’ve the most problem with – AFTER spending some quality time rolling my lats, using taped lacrosse balls down my spine, and a single lacross ball around both scapula and moving my arms in full range of motion (no pain). For once I didn’t do any distraction but I DID spend some time working on my traps – though probably not very effectively. They are like wood, had no idea they were that tight.
After reading in the book about torque, when doing a light weight front squat, I focused on getting tight and screwing my feet into the ground…and for the very first time (ever) was able to do a proper front squat without restriction! I had someone watching to make certain I wasn’t leaning backwards w/out realizing it – and I wasn’t. Will continue reading/watching the videos/and mobilizing (a Gemini is coming). I think a lack of torque has certainly been part of it – though of course it doesn’t cause the restriction.
Oh yes, while the restriction has returned it is very light so SOMETHING came together properly this morning – finally something positive 🙂 Thank you for your advice – and I am going to get that video made and hopefully get more information from that.
