Build A Foundation For your Body Before Achieving Results.

Are you wanting to begin Crossfit training but have no foundation or maybe you have many years of crossfit training under your belt but injuries keep occurring? 

If the answer is yes then read this blog!

Crossfit

About 15 years ago there were only about 3 CrossFit gyms in the state, but now there is at list a gym that specializes in this sport in almost every suburb. I am a Massage Therapist and Personal Trainer, and I do know a lot about building the foundations of a strong body that provides stability that will keep you injury free. My passion is rehabilitation as a Personal Trainer and Massage Therapist. 

Almost every month I encounter a client who has pushed themselves beyond their capabilities, resulting in an injury. There is no problem in pushing one’s body to the absolute maximum, but if the body structure is not stabilized, an injury will result.  In my opinion it takes about 3 months of developing a body that can handle the fundamentals of what CrossFit has to offer.

Let’s think about the following – if you spend most of the time working on your feet or behind a desk, for example, you will use different muscles and neurons systems from what you need if you want to develop a CrossFit focus. CrossFit is a completely different sort of hobby or sport.

Now I want to speak from a Training point of view about what is needed to prime the body to get ready for the beginning stages of CrossFit training.

It is important that we learn how to switch between the inner core and outer core as a response to either lift or pull. Many clients come in thinking that their core is spot on, but they are often mistaken because what they thought their core was being used for, was in fact their erector spinae and quadratus lumborum. Erector spinae and quadratus lumborum are used for stability at the end, and not before any lift and pull.

Most of the time our muscles are completely out of balance and coordination. It’s important with all muscle work to have good coordination between the left and right side of the body. We must also mention the 3 decimal planes which are - sagittal plane, coronal plane and the transverse plane.

It’s also very important that the body is stretched equally as well - not just the phasic muscles but also posture muscles. It is very important to make sure that all the small posture muscles are strengthened and lengthened as this increases stability, coordination and balance. I have a saying – if your posture is not keeping your body or spine upright, don’t even do the exercise!

 

Building a foundation before attempting CrossFit will keep you doing this awesome sport for many years, and it will slow the down the injury rate, and keep you in the gym. As you become stronger, and more in tune with your body, you will you develop a more detailed exercise program, and you will less prone to injury.

If your a beginner wanting a foundation in Crossfit or your injury prone, take action and make an appointment and lets together get to the bottom of your goal.  a

Fast Twitch Stretches

These are the only four stretches you will ever need! horizontal These stretches can be completed on your own anywhere. Always before any stretch always maintain good posture and remain intune with your body. It is important to make sure your body is properly hydrated as it will effetely help you maintain a better stretch that will last longer. The point of this blog is not to confuse with the different types of stretches so I have tried to keep it simple by knowing if fast twitch or slow twitch are needed. In short if I was going to work out, I need the muscles cells/fibers to respond in a fast fashion where power is needed and they are contracting and releasing. Often when I apply fast twitch stretches I’m trying recruit as many muscles fibres as much as possible I need the body to move in a rapid pace. This may include lower half and upper half of the body in one stretch specialty if I was to do a gym session. Always attempt 12 reps to 2 sets taking 2 to 4 seconds between each rep.           1.      Lower and upper body stretch: As you lunge forward with one leg the opposite hand is raised above the head. We are recruiting quad/hip flexor/ lats/shoulder and arm.   2.      Lower and upper body stretch: As you lunge forward the arms are waved to the side of the hip of the same leg. We are recruiting quad/lower back/shoulder/neck and arms.   3.      Lower back and upper back fast twitch stretch: I call it the dog stretch! On a mat bending your knees under your chest in a prone position. Your glutes should be touching the back of  heal with spine arms stretched out. As you move forward leading with the head past the hands at the same push the hips towards the floor and torso towards the air. Make sure when you work back into position that you lead with the glutes and not the lower back. Muscles recruited – Lower back/spine/hips/and neck.   4.      Stretching of the hip flexor in a standing position.  Stand against a pole and swing the one leg in front of the other leg to border of maximum. Sometimes you may hear a tiny click but that is okay. Muscles recruited – Lower back/ inner thigh and hip flexor.       Thnanks for reading my blog and watching my video, I’m always here to help in anyway so feel free to comment or email me any questions!

Water Consumption and How Changing it Can Help Cure Illnesses

  DRINK WATER ON AN EMPTY STOMACH  It is becoming very popular for health buffs in Japan today to drink water immediately upon waking up every morning to be able to maximize its health benefits. Furthermore, there are scientific tests that can prove the effectiveness of this claim. We have published below a step-by-step procedure on how to properly consume water so that you too can reap from its hidden benefits.   For old, serious diseases, as well as any modern illnesses, the water treatment has been proven to be successful by the Japanese Medical Society as a 100% cure for the following diseases:   •   Headache •   Body ache •   Heart system •   Arthritis •   Fast heartbeat •   Epilepsy •   Excess fatness •   Bronchitis •   Asthma •   TB •   Meningitis •   Kidney and urine diseases •   Vomiting •   Gastritis •   Diarrhea •   Piles •   Diabetes •   Constipation •   Eye diseases •   Womb cancer and menstrual disorders •    Ear nose and throat diseases   METHOD OF TREATMENT 1. As you wake up in the morning, before brushing your teeth, drink approximately 4 glasses of 160ml of water. 2. Brush and clean your mouth, but do not eat or drink anything for at least 45 minutes 3. After 45 minutes, you may eat and drink as you normally do. 4. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch, and dinner do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours 5. Those who are old or sick and are unable to drink 4 glasses of water at the beginning may start by gradually increasing their water consumption until they are able to take 4 glasses per day. 6. The above method of treatment will cure sickness and can ensure that you will enjoy a healthy life.   The following list gives the number of days of treatment required to cure/control/reduce major illnesses: 1.     High Blood Pressure (30 days) 2.     Gastric (10 days) 3.     Diabetes (30 days) 4.     Constipation (10 days) 5.     Cancer (180 days) 6.     TB (90 days) 7.     Arthritis patients should follow the above treatment only for 3 days in the 1st week, and from 2nd week onwards – daily.   This treatment method has no side effects, however at the commencement of treatment you may have to urinate more frequently.   It is better if you adopt this practice and integrate it into your normal routine long after you have been cured of your illness or disease. Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active.   This makes sense .. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals ..not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! You have nothing to lose, but everything to gain...   For those who prefer to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal.  However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed and this will slow down digestion.   Once this "sludge" reacts with the acid in your stomach, it will break down and will be absorbed by the intestine faster than it can absorb the nutrients in the solid food that you have just consumed. This will line the intestine and soon enough, this will turn into fats and could lead to cancer. This is why it best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.   A serious note about heart attacks: •        Women should know that a hurting left arm may not always signify a heart attack. •        Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. •        You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. •        Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. •        60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. •        Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we have to survive...   A cardiologist said if everyone who gets this mail sends it to everyone they know, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life.   For more great information like this, please join the Dynamic Lifestyle Faceook Group and check out more of our health articles here.   Also, be a true friend and share this article to everyone you care about!

Do you suffer from chronic Back pain in the lower back because your upper body has no flexibility?

Every day I have to treat new patients who are complaining of lower back problems that just won't go away.

I guess it does make sense to me that if a patient complains of lower back pain, then the lower back must be treated. When patients complain of chronic pain in the lower back, there is a high probability of inflammation or decreased flexibility, which may affect their normal day to day life and it is, therefore,  important to treat the specified area immediately.

When a new client comes in for a consultation in my office, I assess their posture from head to toe and ask them for details about their condition to help me determine the cause of the chronic pain. It is important that I identify the root of the problem and not just try and treat the symptoms.  

Basically, there needs to be flexibility in the upper back to help improve the mobility in the lower back. If this flexibility is not evident in that patient, then that tells me that he/she is compensating. This will definitely affect their posture even when doing normal things like walking or standing. And, if left untreated, this may result to a chronic, painful sensation in the lower back.

Do you suffer from lower chronic back pain and your health care practitioner keeps treating the symptoms but not the cause? Come in for a assessment and let's find out! 

To book in, simply make an appointment and let's work together in helping you with your issue.

Why can't I be free of pain in my lower back?

Why can't I be free of pain in my lower back?

Chronic Lower Back pain

Chronic Lower Back pain may require Trigger pointing and/or Kanetica therapy. 

The stiffness that you feel on your lower back may not be simply the cause of your recurring pain. That's why it is important to also check the alignment or structure of the upper back, and the strength between both sides of the body.

In fact, many patients will experience shoulder pain even before the pain in the lower back starts. Because of this, it is important to undergo a complete body assessment, and not isolate treatment on just the painful areas.

Chronic Back And Neck Pain

Have you tried everything to alleviate the pain from your back or neck but nothing seems to be working?

 Do you find it hard to sleep, work or, most importantly, spend time with your family?

Is the pain holding you back and giving you depression?

If you answered 'yes' to any these questions, then Kanetica may be just the thing that'll work for you. Watch the video below and see how it has worked wonders for this lady.

For a limited time only, Dynamic Lifestyle is offering 50% off on Assessment and Treatment services for chronic back and neck pain. To book your appointment, please visit https://www.ezybook.net/pages/dynamiclifestyle/
